Description

Cost varies on whim of owner. I paid 100 peso for 1 person and truck. No electricity or wifi. Cold showers and toilet block used by all Santa Fe clients and beach visitors. Bar and restaurant during day. Other bars and restaurants along beach within walking distance. Also within walking distance of Tulum ruins. Access road is a little rough but accessible only vehicles lower 2.2m Camp area is sand but again is suitable for 2 wheel drive. Sea breeze and some shade.

Comment: Nice place, but they wanted to have 500 pesos per night for 2 persons. We can't recommend it.

It is not possible to rich this place with our camper. Our camper is a 4x4 but 3m high. From south there is a barrier with high about 2.2m From north you drive through the park. Its not allowed.

250 pesos per person. The personnel unfriendly, didn’t want to negotiate. We stayed for one night to see how it is. Not a good vibe, toilets dirty, showers outside, no hot water, no electricity. Electricity closes at 8pm. The beach was full of algae and the sea windy. We didn’t stay longer, didn’t feel is the right place to relax. A lot of other tourists would come in during the day, there is no security during the night. On top of this the manager came to tell us in the morning to move our truck on the other side as it occupies too much space. Our truck is pretty small, I guess it was because of the awning. Really inappropriate. We felt it’s a bit too much the price for what we received back. We left the following day. No es buena onda!

Rip-off parking lot by the beach asking $250 per person with very ‘mala onda’ people asking for money all the time or for you to move your truck because you are taking ‘too much space’ even though we paid for the truck + 1 tent space. Very expensive food with tacos at $175. It just doesn’t worth the hassle. Loads of other places down the coast with nice people.

Sante Fe lost it's spirit long time ago... Now, way to expensive for was it offer. No ambiance. 500 pesos a night for our small Camper truck... and they even told us we were taking too much space (small table and a hamack). Can't recommand this place even though the sand spot is nice and close to the wonderfull carabeen.

Report Check-In

We skipped this place as the workers seemed pretty savage and seeking money - not accommodating and particular about where we could park. They wanted 200 peso per person (4 people, 1 van and 1 tent) to camp the night plus additional payment for the toilets so we moved on - believe we paid around 50 peso to park for the day whilst at the beach. There are free parking accesses along the beach - Los Pescadores for instance. They are essentially beach roads so parking at night may be an issue with police patrols and strictly no camping on the beach. Ask around as there are spots where travellers accumulate to camp but unsure of exact location. There’s toilets at most cabanas/restaurants so if you’re consuming you’ll be able to use the bathrooms.

Large flat sandy area to camp. Would fit several rigs. Great access to beach, bar, ruins. Toilets with paper, running water, soap. Cold, outdoor showers. Friendly employees. Quiet evening, night, morning except for garbage pickup truck at 4.45am which was only 2 minutes. 400 pesos for our family of 3 for the night. You pay in the little bar/restaurant and they give you a bracelet.

400 MXN$ (20 USD) for 2 of us with our car.
Noisy garbage truck in activity at 04:30 am, just a few minutes.
This place is too much expensive in comparaison with other campgrounds in Quintana Roo (this one is not a really one : just a parking lot with toilets and beach showers) but.... we are in Tulum...with thousands of tourists ready to pay 200 or 300USD for a room in a cabana; so...

The road was too bad for our motorhome, we didn't want to try. No water to fill the tank.

They are getting crazy. Wanted to have 200 per person. With our Camper 500 for 2 persons per night. Crazy! Found a nice place in the National Park south of Tulum.

150 peso for camping per person. No WiFi, no shade, no electricity, owners are not friendly. Generator noise at night. No nightguard. Way too much money for what they offer. Actually they simply offer parking. At least they have restrooms. Beach however is great and is hard to find another spot close to the beach in Tulum.

Report Check-In

Nice enough spot, really the only place we found comfortable near the beach with at least restrooms. As some people have said, the guys who take the money aren't that hospitable, but the people who work here and the tent campers were all very nice. The seaweed here gave one of my kids a rash, but the beach was otherwise lovely. The no dogs rule is, I believe, for all of this national park area. That's what the signs say anyway. 300 pesos / night for our family, we stayed here about 9 nights over a few weeks worth of time.

Beautiful beach within walking distance of Tulum ruins. Parked us between two cabanas, which was ok cause it gave a little shade and put us away from day visitors. Bathrooms get abused by day use, staff was friendly, good strong drinks at the bar, around 70-100 pesos for a mixed drink. Price still 100 pesos pp/nt.

Report Check-In

Big open lot parking lot near restaurant. They asked us to park between two buildings. No wifi or hookups but bathrooms were fine. Owner wasn't super friendly but told us it's 100pp. Our friends came an hour later to meet us and were told there's no room even though we were the only people there. They also said no dogs allowed even though some tent campers had dogs. We figured he didn't really want us there so we left and got a room at Camp Akumal.

great spot on white sand (don't worry, its easy to drive on), bathrooms are basic, wonderful beach and not that crowded

Big rig note: over 3.7 m it's a scretchy ride. 100 pesos p.p. If the police stos you, tell them the name of the camping you're going to. It helped. :-)

this is a solid camping option in tulum. it's big rig friendly and dog friendly. there are no hook ups. it was 100 mxn per person to camp. they have a bar and restaurant on site and its good food. lots of space for tents or hammocks. the only downside is that it can get very busy throughout the day and the facilities can get grimy from all of the foot traffic.

We stayed on the parking lot directly on the beach. Simple and dirty restrooms. 120 MXN/person for one night, you get a discount for more nights, 100 MXN after the second night. The camping is close to the ruins of Tilum, around 15 minutes per feet to the entrance.
