We arrived on the 31th of December and they invited us celebrate new year eve with them and their family !
Had a wonderful night.
We paid 200pp. The facilities are very clean and nice. Wifi, hot shower, big kitchen, lot of tables and a small lagoon to refresh too at the back. Good shadow under the trees to park.
Only think is it is no that quiet because of the "cigale" making lot of noise but we still enjoyed it a lot.

The worst part was the paying, as they are really disorganized: everyone (owner, wife and even the preteen kid) wants to take payments and not one of them gave me any receipts... I was expecting they at least kept good records or good communications among themselves, but that turned out not to be the case: when I checked out after our 2-week stay, the owner's wife came up with a bill for the 5 nights I supposedly hadn't payed for yet(!). I then proceeded to show her that she was charging for the night of the very day we were leaving, which was undue as we were leaving in the early afternoon and her own rule (stated at check-in time) was each night's pay covered the stay until the next night. She agreed to cut that day out, but insisted on the other 4, when I was sure I owned just 1. Not having the time to spend on a useless discussion (after all, as I had no receipts, it was her word against mine), I paid for the 4 days. So, if you are staying for more than 1-2 days, do yourself a favor and insist on a receipt every time you pay; if they can't or won't provide it, then at least take a picture of yourself handling them the money, so you can prove you paid afterwards and not have to double-pay nor engage in useless time-wasting arguments when it's time to leave.

We spent almost 2 weeks here. Best was the WiFi, very fast when it worked: initially it went down repeatedly many times an hour, interrupting whatever we were doing, until the owner showed us the long sequence of cables connecting his two routers -- joined not by connectors but by simply cutting the insulation and twisting the individual conductors together (!!). I knew a little about Ethernet cabling and advised him that he should replace the patchworked cable with a single, properly connected and shielded one, but he didn't seem to care -- so as to have minimum working internet, l offered to at least solder and properly insulate the joints, which he promptly accepted -- and so, after about one hour spent standing on the top of a table (no proper ladder was available) with my soldering gun, I got good WiFi for our stay. The owner offered to compensate me in some way for the work, but never got around to it, and I dismissed it because all I wanted was working Internet. Not sure how long my "fix" is going to keep working because the joints (alas, the entire cable) is exposed to weather and should not take long in degrading.

A delightful place: lots of trees, very friendly, lovely kitchen, shining showers and toilettes, good wifi.
200 pesos- 3.50US, I think it is a bargain.

After more than two weeks of wild camping and gas station showers this place was just what we needed. Water was hot, wifi great and it was quiet! Movistar only G signal. We stayed two nights at 200 pp a night.

Report Check-In

Great common room with cooking facilities. Clean bathrooms with hot water. Space for big rigs and there is a hostel attached (couple of rooms with bathroom 300 per person). We paid 750 for family of 4 to camp.

Report Check-In

Yeah, they are trying to creep up the cost, but they accepted 150 pppn at this time of year (off-season).
Otherwise, as described and nice and quiet. We spent three pleasant days there and were the only ones over this weekend.

Report Check-In

Paid 200pp for camping with a campervan. it was late, we were too tired to argue. The common room is absolutely lovely though, so we think it's worth it. Good internet too.

Report Check-In

Very nice location, beautiful garden with a lot of animals running around. Lots of schade for tents, good ground for tents as well. Facilities for the camping are good but basic. Toilets and showers are clean and good, kitchen is a bit too basic in our opinion, almost no utensileries, run down place. The facilities for the hostel are new and seem better. We paid 150 pp for the camping. The hostel is 400 pp.
The owner is supernice, he also runs a bar(bershop) with good music.
He is also looking for volunteers for the hostel and camping.
Recommended when in the neighbourhood.

Our family loved camping here.
There are clean bathrooms, and a clean kitchen available to use with large fridge.
Internet for us was fast enough to even stream.
There are fruit trees. Ducks, chickens, turkeys, sweet dogs, cats and a parrot.
The best part about this location is the family. They are all very nice. Our kids loved playing with theirs.
Next to their house is a rock you can climb with amazing views of the area. We also went to the swimming hole nearby to cool off from the heat during the middle of the day.
There is a fútbol field and you can cross it and walk easily in to the small town for helado, 1-2 restaurants, and a small kiosco. (Most shops shut down mid-day til 6 pm).
The stars were very pretty at night and this place was quiet. Highly recommend. We paid 400 pesos for our family.

Very good place. I took a dorm. Clean. Good bed with air-conditioning. Very important at this time of the year. Everything else is as described below. I paid 400p and had the whole dorm for myself. Highly recommended.

Report Check-In

The price for tent camping is now 150 pesos per person or 400 for a dorm bed with air con. Showers were almost warm when we were there but it was 33 degrees even at 7pm so it didn't matter, and the camping bathrooms were having repairs done. Clean toilet and showers although LOTS of mosquitos. Kitchen available next to dorms and another in the campsite with 2 gas hobs. Do not drink the water in the camp kitchen...it is from a tank, but the water from the tap next to the camp ground is potable and a direct link to mains water. We drank it no issues. WiFi is working and average. manuel12 was the password. Friendly owners. Lots of livestock about. Also some rather large spiders took shelter on our bikes....made me jump!
Shops a short walk down the street (turn left out of campsite).
