A green space to spend one day. Don't mis the museum. A local person said it's not so safe there, is better to stay at night on the next town Las Cañas

Es un buen lugar para pasar un día. No se pierdan el museo. Un local nos dijo qué no es tan seguro por lo que nos fuimos al siguiente pueblo Las Cañas para el segundo día

Lovely night here. Parkland with multiple nice spots along the river, next to the fray bentos factory. Enjoyed the tour too.

Great spots and lots of them. Fisherman during the day at the beaches. Don't leave your shoes outside as the horses grabbed one of ours! Luckily when we yelled he dropped it. We stayed 3 nights. BTW bathrooms are now grey 😀

Report Check-In

River was flooded so we stayed up on the cliff with our tent. At midnight we were woken up by police who told we cannot camp there but let us sleep until the morning. Everything was nice and polite. Maybe it's allowed to camp at the river.

Very convenient for the museum and great shade. Quite busy until 11pm the quiet until 7am when the grass cutting team with strimmers arrived.

Report Check-In

Parked at a small clearing 500m further down from the museum, along the river bank. Nice spot, quiet night and surrounded by curious horses. Visited the museum next day which we would recommend.

Report Check-In

Didn’t camp but looked like a nice place, lots of people fishing and horses roaming around. Definitely worth the tour (approx 2 hours) as you get to go around all the old machinery and learn about the history of the place. They speak English too. It’s even better on a Tuesday when entry and the tour is free! (120$ normally)

We stayed here for 4 days. A nice place with nice horses asking for food.. there are people all the night crossing the roads but it is quiet. It is a nice place to stay for free. We ask to police if its secure and they sad Yes.
there are bathroom at the museum.

Report Check-In

We found a very quiet site some hundred meters downstream the factory.

Nice place (for free) next to the museum and the river bevor the border to Argentina. We stayed there for 2 nights with 3 other overlander. There are public toilets (basic, but ok). Tuesdays is free entry at the museum and we had a private tour for free (just try and ask ;-)) Place is for free. WiFi at the entrance and only when the museum is open.

Report Check-In

We are quite spoilt when it comes to sightseeing, but the museum and especially the tour are an absolute highlight. After spending a night amidst the horses on the river bank we tremendously enjoyed the Unesco World Heritage site: an old factory with impressive machines, architecture and stories about its history. Worth at least 2 hours of roaming around.

Report Check-In

The museum is closed on monday, open tuesday to sunday (9:30 - 17:00).
Free entrance and guided tour on tuesday. Open Wi-Fi (Hidrovia) near the entrance.
