Latest Check-Ins

Quiet nithg, Good place to sleep one night. In morning many mosquitos (sancudos/pernilongo).

parked around 7pm and at 8pm friendly local police came and told us we can sleep here, but said it's considered dangerous, they gave us their phone number in case of any issues and told us to park on top of the tiny hill under the lamps. some dogs ran around at night, but it was a calm night

Great spot to relax before heading on to long hours of driving. We were asked to pay 5Qtz for the van + 2Qtz pp. We slept two nights there, really liked it, apart from all the trash around.

as described.
Beautiful little park beside a nice lake. locals run laps around the park sunrise to sunset, everyone is very friendly. curious kids, I had about 10 kids surrounding my car watching me cook dinner haha.
a car full of locals came at dusk to blast music and drink beer but they left at 10pm. always felt safe and relaxed!
payed 5q and asked fee collecter if I could spend the night in my car, he said it was fine.

We parked by the little lake. We got there around 6pm and left in the morning and no one charged us for parking. The cops came to check on the van around 8pm and they were really friendly.

Beautiful peaceful place next to a lake that seems to slowly be growing in.
Enjoyed a sunny breakfast in front of our camper watching the wildlife in the lake.
