Description

Wonderful flat campsite run by Jorge Serrano- includes a toilet, shelter with hammock and showers (though not working when we were here). Was recommended by a local. Set in a beautiful peaceful valley. We had the place to ourselves. There is a pond - Carlos took our kids to feed the fish in the pond, Tilapia, if you want some.

A couple of small rivers run around the property and you can swim in them.

Jorge is continuing to develop the area, and there are a couple of cabins and some platforms. There are a couple of power sockets too.

He didn’t want to charge a specific price, and asked for a donation instead. We paid $200mx for 2 adults and two kids.

He also offered to arrange local food for us, but we already had things with us.

Jorge lives 5mins away, so if not here call or WhatsApp him (272) 199 5611

Really nice place. All said in previous posts. We had heavy rain. Because the little bridge is not suitable for heigh rigs yo have to cross a little creek

Incredible Location! We have stayed here now 2 or 3 times.

Beautiful and secluded place with lots of trees, plants and water. Due to heavy rain in the last days the stream that runs across the property unfortunately was muddy and we did not go swimming. Normally the water is clear though and there are great spots to dip in and cool off. Many tables and benches among the trees are provided as well.

Jorge is a great guy who shared his Gorditas with us for breakfast and took us on a spontaneous tour to see awesome caves close by. We also got a great view of the Pico de Orizaba.
This place is worth a visit only to hang out a day with him.

Price policy seems more fixed now. We were asked to pay 100 pesos/person a night.
The flush toilet and cold shower were clean.

Very quiet place with superfriendly owners. We parked next to a little fishpond. There are two springs and you can take a bath in little pools. We filled our domestic water tank diving our pump in the small river. Very safe, good for relaxing, they also offer small tours to cave or waterfalls. You can also climb the hills where they plant organic coffee. On top nice view on Citlaltepetl.
We give 5 star rating!

Nice and safe place surrounded by nature. You can swim in ponds, they have own springs. We filled our non-potable watertank diving our pump into the small river next to our RV. Jorge will organize food, little tours, whatever you want. Perfect for relaxing, ride your bike, climb the hills. Totally safe. You pay what it's worth to you.

Tropical paradise nestled in a mountain valley! A spring comes out of the mountain to create a couple of swimming ponds and the stream that circles this 3 acre property. Muy tranquila! Jorge is the nicest man and both camping and day use are by donation.

Jorge is a very friendly and honest guy who's goal it is to conserve the nature around. The rivers are Cristal clear and it's super tranquilo here.. He took us on a day trip around the neighboring villages and showed us what nature has to offer here.. It's a beautiful place and everything is donation based.

Great spot! We were dealing with a really friendly guy named Jorge, but I guess it’s the same place. Located in mountainous field with “natural” swimming pools. We got to park in the car park opposite the site for free. Jorge said it was safe at night, but he also offered us to stay in his garden in town or he would let someone come for 150p to guard the place while we were there. They brought us bread and fruit in the morning! (When navigating to this place, use maps.me because google doesn’t recognize the road leading here.)
