Description

Wild camping beside a rustic comedor. The owner, Osvaldo, is very nice and welcome. Just in front of a beautiful surfer beach. No facilities, just a ecological washroom of the restaurant. Very hot during the day but with some spots of shade and the sea we were ok. Price: Free!

Now that they are charging 200p/person for camping at Playa San Diego, this is a much better alternative for free camping on this section of the coast! We managed to drive in when the rope was down and thus avoided paying any kind of toll (as some others have mentioned), but can’t comment on what amount is being asked for or when it’s being “staffed”.

Un endroit à ne pas rater !!!! Seul petit point négatif les chiens (gentils) mais affamés qui attendent au pied de votre camion toute la nuit.

Great spot. Osvaldo welcomed us right away as soon as we arrived. We had dinner and breakfast. And the WiFi fichas worked really well. Bathroom and shower were in ok conditions.

4th time lucky looking for a secure place to stay and we weren't disappointed. Lovely, remote beach next to a small restaurant. Free. No mozzies but then it is the dry season and windy too. There's even a bolted rock climbing route on the adjacent rock if you want to trust the rusty gear.

There is a campground 500m inland in town but it looked kinda bleak with minimal security.

Beautiful spot between the ocean, the long beach and dunes.
Spent one night here and felt very safe thanks to Oswaldo and his family sleeping on the spot too.
They were very kind to let us sleep for free and offered their bathroom for 10$ ( which we didn’t need).
We ordered some tasty food from the restaurant ( but they didn’t require).
Definitely worth a visit; the sunset was incredible .
As for the “toll fee”; we didn’t see anybody and the chain was down. Not sure they still charge , we didn’t pay anything .

Nice place to stay. Free of charge, but sometimes people of the village charge you for driving the road. Gave them 45 Pesos pP. You can buy Wi-Fi at the restaurant.

Spent one night . Everything is still the same.
Bought a beer and had breakfast. Night was free… Would have been free even without consuming… No one charging when driving out today. My luck.
Talked to Oswaldo about this random charges… He said locals agree to charge, and some get lucky not to be charged, so be aware you may have to pay at least 50 pppn if not 100, if “selected” by the toll. Chain was down when I drove both ways…
It’s worth though…

Osvaldo el dueño del restaurante frente al mar muy buena onda. parqueamos en el medio del muelle. muchos mosquitos. el agua super limpia.
lo único malo de este lugar es la comunidad, que para entrar se abusan y quieren cobrar mucho dinero, en nuestro caso éramos 4 personas dormimos dos noches y a la salida nos querían cobrar 100 pesos por persona y por día. no nos dejaban ir. se pusieron agresivos. no volvemos más!

Beautiful Camping spot, even for tents. Showers and toilets available, amazing beach, gigantic sanddune. The owner is really nice, he will tell you a lot about turtles if you're interested. He said we just have to pay a donation, it's for the turtle protection. We gave him 100 pesos for 2 of us and a dog. They also serve really good food, fresh fish and cold beer.

Report Check-In

as described. we came in as a cold front was coming from the Gulf so wind was unbearable and we could not stay, Oswaldo gave us contact details for the authorities to check if the road at La Ventosa was open despite the strong winds. no cell coverage.

Locals set up a rope block and wanted 30 pesos/pp to pass. There was six of us and we told them we wanted to look first by foot before we paid them, but it was no hope. We ask the local surf camp and she told us they can’t do anything about it. The town has mix reviews on them doing this but can’t stop it. Even if you stay at the surf camp you will have to pay. Seems like it’s a random occurrence so try your luck, we moved on but I bet it was nice. Bring supplies as the shop in town was really basic.

Beautiful beautiful place with great stars and no lights. The sand fleas are insanely bad though otherwise we would have stayed longer. Oswaldo is very welcoming. Be sure to leave some money when you leave to support the clean beach and turtle program.

Great place. Owner was very kind and talkative. He was at the beach when we arrived. With him was the town drunk who kept asking if we had any beer for him...when we said no, he started asking for money to buy a beer, then he started to try to sell us sardines that evening or lend him money and he’ll bring fish in the morning, so he could buy a beer.

While not aggressive, it was uncomfortable and off putting. Made us feel like we wanted to leave.

However, he finally left and we got to chat with Osvaldo and had a pleasant night.

He is starting to ask for donations for the turtle shelter, so while it could be a free stay, it’s hard to not give. 50 pesos is worth the stay.

When I arrived there was a beautiful strong winds blowing on shore which was wonderfully cooling. All the locals were welcoming. I felt very safe here.
Being on my own swimming didn't seem like a good idea. Highly recommended for natural beauty of this free camping spot.

Pat & Nic en Rialta, Beau site, dunes de sable, très tranquille. Possibilité de voir des tortues en saison. Aucun service ni internet ! 50 pesos par nuit au restaurant Blue Rock. Ce restaurant n’a rien à offrir. Sauvage pour ceux qui aime la nature.
Nous y avons passé une nuit sans lumière mais son dé la mer. Sécuritaire, les habitants sont corrects.

Beautifull place. Camper.au bord de la mer. J'ai donné 50 pesos au proprio du resto mais c'est normalement gratuit. Aucun problème avec un classe A. No problem with a classe A RV, road is hard Gravel.

Nice place, maybe it's the off season, nobody except fishermen during the day.

there is two restaurant/bar now : the blue rock and to the left : The Lichk. a sort of surf bar. Both look closed yet. We stay near the surf bar along the sand beach. very quiet.

There is also a turtle center now, but we didn't see any turtle...dolphin instead!

What an awesome place! The restaurant was closed as usual during the windy season. But if you pack food and water at the nearby pueblo (ask for la Tienda Noemy), you can spend the best beach time ever on this pristine beach. Oswaldo welcomed me very nicely and introduced me to his family without touching any of my extremities. Oh! He actually took me on his arms on my departure day😊 Highly recommended!

Nice place to be at the beach for free. Great pictures of sunset and sunrise. Sea was cold and a little risky when we were there. We were able to participate Turtle babies liberation for free.

Beautiful dune to hike on the right hand side about 30minutes away from the restaurant.

Osvaldo chatted with us about surf spots for a while. TONS of wind and no waves for the next couple of months, so we opted not to stay. He said come back April to June for best waves- good beginner wave right next to expert wave out front. He was very friendly and open to offering other suggestions/recommendations for places to go.

LADIES, BE WEARY! Oswaldo seemed very nice and conversational, but I (the female half of our party) made the mistake of saying goodbye separately from my travel partner, during which encounter Oswaldo grabbed my boob! We promptly LEFT. Other than that it was nice and a gorgeous location, but don't approach Oswaldo alone. CREEPY!

It's just beautiful!!! Sunrise, sunset, moon and stars and Osvaldo with his lovely family... better than a 5* hotelbeach!!!

We loved this place.. osvaldo is the most humble man we have met. The food at the restaurant is super fresh cooked with locally grown ingredients. The surf at la bamba was fun too.. osvaldo let us stay the night for free, however the sand flies were eating us alive inside our truck camper. Therefore we choose to stay only one night. If you choose to come to this beautiful place, have a drink or some food at his restaurant, it's definitely worth it... bring deed!

This is a great little place. Osvaldo and his family are friendly ad welcoming. Plus the food is tasty, too! In addition, Osvaldo helped to found a cooperative to keep the beaches undeveloped and healthy. The organization is mainly focused on sea turtle habitat but is also looking into helping to restore populations of an endangered Mexican mangrove tree and potentially develop some trash collection for the beach. Chat with him about it! They have received a small grant and will but building a turtle facility in the coming year...

Report Check-In

the restaurant is closed until next year (april) due to high winds but oswaldo is here and you can certainly camp. no shade, no facilities and sandflies, but a spectacular beach!

Report Check-In

The owner and his family are wonderful and friendly. He does sleep here over night, but advised us to not leave ANYTHING out! It's free, and he never mentioned needing to eat in exchange, and we could use his ecological toilet. It's my least favorite toilet situation so far, but at least you have that. Too many car loads of surfers to go and dig a whole for your business.
We choose to eat dinner every night to say thank-you for the use of the area and the security. The sand fleas are the worst I have experienced. They don't seem to care about my deet bug spray. I'm slathering on.

This is free. Just next to the beach and with a great view of the wave. Osvaldo the owner is a lovely and very friendly man, so is the rest of his family. Stay there and buy some meals from his restaurant! FYI it's very hot and there's mosquitos so bring a mosquito net or lots of bug spray or both!

We checked out the coco rv park. The lady was nice but there were no views as it is a ways from the ocean. We talked to some other campers that had been staying in their van and in a tent under the palapa at the restaurant on the water. The restaurant owner was really sweet and enjoyed sharing his palapa area communally. We parked a bit to the left of the restaurant in one of our favorite camp spots yet. He said staying a few nights we didn't need to worry security wise but longer and people from neighboring towns would notice and possibly try and take stuff we didn't put inside the bus at night. The restaurant owner stays there overnight so we felt safe.

...Un bout du monde, sous les etoiles, donnant sur une immense plage a la Robinson Crusoe...Avec en prime la presence bienveillante D'Osvaldo dans son petit "Resto Guinguette" rendant ce lieu absolument authentique.. Quelques emplacements proches de Palapas sont accessibles (terrain meuble..), Spot de Surf, une anse un peu protegee rend la baignade possible ...! Point d'eau douce (puits), gratuit... Un don est bienvenu pour l'association de benevoles de protection des tortues dont Osvaldo fait partie.
