Description

A nice campsite from where you can start the hike as well. Can also leave your car here. Probably they can arrange guides, but we didn't ask.
Way up is doable for every car, the access gate might be a bit tight for bigger rigs.
We paid 150Q for 2 cars, 4 adults and 2 kids.

Latest Check-Ins

The location is wrong. Very wrong. I don't know why this listing exists, but ignore it. Go to the Miratenango II listing just nearby. It's the same campsite but for some reason iOverlander has two different locations for it. The other one is accurate.

Aside from the wrong location, it's a lovely spot. Great views over the valley, very quiet. Cool, fresh, mountain air.

In terms of rig size, the entrance is pretty narrow, long, windy and steep. I wouldn't pull a 5th wheel up here, or a bus conversion. A fullsize pickup camper or LWB sprinter should be ok maybe?

One other thing - there was no one here when we arrived. We waited around for a couple of hours (because the air was a beautiful change after the humidity) and just as we leaving two super friendly guys on a motorbike turned up and let us in. Cost was 50q p/p for one night.

No WiFi, no electricity (I don't think), but good bathrooms.

We made it with our expedition vehicle, it was a little bit tight but it fit. We are 2,30 m wide and 3,5 m high and the gate is 2,90 m tight. From here we started our own hiking tour to the acatenango (without a guide). It's the perfect camp to start the tour. we paid 50 q for two person for Camping. the entrance to the hike is 50 q per person.

We camped here for one night and let the car parked here for a second night while we hiked Acatenango. The owners are very friendly and have a little model of the volcanoes where the trails are shown and where they happily explain the route options. They also have a luggage scale and we rented some walking sticks for free. When we came back from the hike we used the warm shower. We paid in total 100 Quetzales (so 25 pp per night also for the night we only parked). Probably could have haggled but we didn't.

We didn't take a guide for the hike and it was very doable without. Some comments on what we would have loved to know before we left we put on the iOverlander icon for the hike starting point in El Soledad.

Oups, got our measures wrong. Our van is 1.9m wide and 2.75m high.
Parked on the top parking near the entrance. Very quiet at night.

Report Check-In

25Qpp per day. entrance is very small. We just passed with our 1.7m width van. Many low branches for our 1.75m high van but we managed. Flat parking area.
