Something not right?

Description

This is another boat launch 500 mtrs downstream at the end of town. Advantage to the other places: easy to access, flat, don't have to worry about parking while on the boat trip ( 230 pesos pp as everywhere, clean banos 5 pesos ) you can enjoy town in the evening. Arrived at 5 pm asked about overnight stay - no problem - no cost - accessible all night but guarded.

Okay for a night. We showed up around 530 pm and the parking attendant was really friendly and told us we can park there. He asked us to leave a tip in the morning. Then around dark these two younger guys came up and asked us for 120 pesos. We were a little annoyed because we didn’t know who was really in charge. In the end they accepted 100 pesos and we tipped the guy 20 the next day.
Boat tour is totally worth it! So many crocodiles and it’s really beautiful. The tour left around 1015 am. Cost 300 pp

Camped here for the night. Was able to bargain to 50pesos per night. Flat parking area under mango trees. We were a bit worried that the falling mangos would break our solar panel so we put towels on top. Quiet at night. Boat tour was 280pesos per person and it leaves at 11am. Baños 5pesos.

Boat tour now 280 MXN pP, official price for all. We came in the afternoon and booked a tour for the next morning at 10 am. But it starts at 11, because they are waiting for a full boat.
Overnight stay in the parking lot costs now 100 extra, for using bathroom you have additional costs.

Boats tour was lovely but it was 275ps per person so I think they ripped us off a bit or they raised their prices. When we asked if we could sleep there, they wanted a “propina” for that so we gave them some. It get’s quiet at night. They ground is leveled. It’s ok for one night as we didn’t feel really safe in the city the vibe there was quite eerie. Would recommend if you just want to do the boats tour and need a place to crash after.
The canyon was insane though was worth the money!

Not really one of my favorite camping places. When we arrived they wanted a 100 pesos cause we didn’t want to do the tour the next day. We agreed. But later they tried to charge 150… We only paid a 100. The place was full of mosquitoes, even with my mosquito nets up the whole van was filled. And the locals where very loud, playing loud music and watching tv extremely loud untill after midnight. Won’t really recommend..

Good place, guarded day and night. Not large, just space for about 10 cars. They will probably not accept more than one camper at once. Very big rigs may not fit, max length is probably around 7m. Very friendly people. We stayed a full week here during the fiesta grande. The first two days we stayed for free, thereafter we agreed on 100 p per night (camper van and 2 persons).

Nice folks. Right by a boat launch. They let us park even when we weren’t going to do the boat into the canyon. Can’t park on the left dirt parking lot (it isn’t theirs) but you can park in their part on the right. Very quiet except there was the annual fiesta Parachicos (15jan-23jan) but we knew that so we knew there would be musica till the early hours! Wasn’t bad at all.. the fiestas were fenomenal! They have toilets you can use for $5.

We parked for the night. The left parking lot was closed, we stayed at the eastern/right one. No wind = very warm at night ...

Boattrip: 250$ pp, the first boat started about 1015 a.m.

Arrived at 9pm, there was a chain preventing us from entering but there were some people there who made a call to their boss to confirm that we could stay overnight. Felt safe, 5$ for toilets pp
