Free... Nice big open space down by the river under town where they launch the lanchas for Tamul falls.. You have the place to yourself at night.. Nice place to take a swim... Very welcoming community... The lanchas cost 1600 ( Dec 2022) pesos but if you wait around a little you can get enough people to share a lancha at 200pp ( Dec 2022) to go on a 3 hour row to the falls and back stopping at a cave to go swimming... I don't think you HAVE to get a lancha to camp here...
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
We didn’t sleep here. But we came with our own boats and had to pay a 120 peso entrance fee for kayaks. Was annoying since I read 10 pesos multiple times for entrance. I didn’t think I’d be charged for not taking the canoe lol😡 They gave kayak receipt and everything. Not sure it’s legit. I wouldn’t want to park here overnight. A little too secluded / public access for me!!!!Report Check-In
Entrance costs 10$ / p, to sleep the lady at the entrance told us that it was 50$ for the vehicle, we explained that usually travelers don't pay the night and she agreed to stay sleeping for free. Very quiet night, we stayed in the first parking lot on the right just before the passage to pay because the land is flat (photo small van). Boat tour, 200 $ / p. You row for 2 hours round trip and there are 2 stops of 30 minutes, so 3 hours in total. I advise rather to come in the morning because the sun is hidden behind the mountains from 3 p.m. and the waterfall is in the shade afterwards.Report Check-In
We slept there by asking locals and no issues to stay. we paid a private lancha 2000$. Up to 10 peopleReport Check-In
We went for the boat trip and were allowed to stay in our camper for the night. Looks like the pandemic restriction is over ! Private trip is now 1600, camping freeReport Check-In
No está permitido acampar o dormir en tu van en el parking. Hay un terreno que te rentan la noche 50 pesos por vehículo pero es terreno del ganado. El río pasa por ahí solo que tiene mucho lodo y esta difícil entrar para poder nadar desde ahí.
El costo de las lanchas son de 1,600 pesos si lo quieres privado y solo pueden subir 6 personas o sino está el compartido y te queda en $200 por persona y es una canoa de 8 a 20 personas que tienes que compartir y remar para llegar a la cascada. El recorrido no incluye poder entrar a nadar en la cascada o al río. La entrada del complejo tiene un costo de $10 pesos por persona y ahí decides si quieres hacer el recorrido o no. Los baños tienen costo de $5 pesos. Ya que no pudimos dormir en el estacionamiento y el camping que nos ofrecían no nos pareció, pues nos fuimos para la playita así lo puedes buscar es gratis y puedes nadar y disfrutar del río.
It is not allowed to camp or sleep in your go in the parking lot. There is a land that rents you at night 50 pesos per vehicle but it is livestock ground. The river passes through there only that it has a lot of mud and it is difficult to enter to be able to swim from there. The cost of the boats are 1,600 pesos if you want it private and you can only upload 6 people or else is shared and it is $ 200 per person and it is a canoe of 8 to 20 people who have to share and paddle to reach the waterfall. The tour does not include being able to swim in the waterfall or the river. The entrance of the complex has a cost of $ 10 pesos per person and there you decide if you want to travel or not. The bathrooms have cost $ 5 pesos. Since we could not sleep in the parking lot and the campsite they offered us, we did not seem to us, because we went for the beach so you can search it is free and you can swim and enjoy the river.Report Check-In
We arrived late afternoon and asked for sleeping in den Van. They said it's not allowed anymore because of the pandemic. We asked about the "Campamento Morena" who is marked in Osm (Open Source Map). They said that this area is private but they could aks the owner. The owner allowed us to sleep there and wanted 100 pesos to stay on his property (no Service), there are toilets next to the boats, but you have to pay extra.
Next day we wanted to do the boat tour to the waterfalls, but they say because of the pandemic we have to take a private boat for 1600 pesos (!). We decided to wait for asking other people if they wanna share a boat (up to 7 people 1600 pesos, 8-10 people 200 pesos per person), but as it was early in the morning, there was nobody and we decided to leave.
we are arriving in the evening and nobody ask us something but ut was the end of the day for the worker.
We take the lancha and the price is 150 by person ( children also).
You need to be minimum 8 to get your boat.
We was a little boat of 8 and it was a good moment.
This river is nice but you don't go near the falls, the stream is too much strong, I think it's dangerous to go and they don't want to take the risk.
When you come back you go to swim in a cénote.
Good day in family and around 10 am you haven't a lot of people.
We stay 2 quiet night here.
No problem with a 26' rv, there is bus here.
As described by others. We paid 10 pesos per person and spent the night. Google map couldn't get us here, but map.me worked.Report Check-In
As previously described. Now 150 pesos per person with a min of 8 people. Well worth the paddle up the river to view the waterfall and you also stop at a cave to go for a swim in the warm water. Highly recommendedReport Check-In
Everything as described. We arrived around 7 PM, right at sunset, and were not charged for parking. Assuming the people taking money for that had gone home for the day.
Rowing out to the falls was a great time!
Really nice place, peaceful, very friendly people. Pay $10pp and you stay as many nights as tou want (we stay a few and nobody bothered us). You can also use bathrooms and make fires. No internet signal. Tour to the falls is $120pp (with at least 10 people), we really enjoy it. Highly recommended it!Report Check-In
Great place to stay for the night either before or after doing Tamul falls - like everyone says, this is where the boats launch from. We parked in the parking lot closer to the boats where it's still flat and a little grassy but other folks in tents parked closer to the bathrooms. Composting toilets, our dogs had a blast running around after everyone left. Super peaceful!Report Check-In
Good place to sleep.
Just pay for the entrance, 10pesos per person
Really quiet at night
No need to take lanchas
Really friendly communauty
10 pesos pp to park here; no extra charge for overnight parking. Felt safe and very quiet. No telcel and wifi. 120 pesos pp for shared boats (6-20 people) and 1200 pesos for a private boat (dogs allowed). We took the latter and left just as the fog was starting to disappear (8h30 AM) and had the falls and cenote (warm water by the way) to ourselves. Registration is done in a central place, so I don’t think the price is up for discussion.Report Check-In
Cool expierence for sure. At first we weren't sure if we were making the right decision as it's summer and the busy/hot season, but we ended up really enjoying it. 20 pesos to park, then you put your name on a list with how many in your party and you wait until they can put you on a boat (240 pesos for 2 people). It turned out to be lots of fun, you splash around with all the other boats so you end up soaking wet the entire time which was welcomed in the heat. You stop at a cenote and you can opt to jump put of the boat and float/swim down the river for a portion of it. We could have camped with no additional charge where we were but since it was still hot we opted for paying 80pesos to camp down by the river, certainly the right decision. FYI the river is a bit muddy right now but we had tubes to float in.Report Check-In
We stayed for one night here for free. It felt safe, super calm at night. Basic toilets. Tamul was amazing, it's better to arrange the tour the day before if possible and go as early as you can to the waterfalls. Price for the boat is 1200MP now, though they might accept 1000MP.
It was worth it because we went there kind of early and were alone for some time. We were able to swim and enjoy the views with no other boats, and then enjoy the Cenote alone for a while too.
On our way back we saw a few full boats (20 people more or less per boat), I think our experience would have been quite different if we had gone later. No telcel signal and no wifi.Report Check-In
Camping is available right by the water, I know there are bathrooms and a vestibule right there but didnt use them as didnt camp,
Others were camping though. Waterfall rowing is 800 pesos for a couple, or if you wait for a boat to fill up itll be 100 mxn per person. Really awesome spot
very nice quiet place...we did fire and sleep a night. Welcoming people. we did fishing and visit the Tamul falls with our kayak. Free campingReport Check-In
Emplacement idéal pour aller ensuite en lancha jusqu'au chute de tamul. Large emplacement, calme.Report Check-In
At our visit prices has changed. At the entrance of the park we paid 10 pesos per person and the boat 120 p/p pesos loaded with 9 people. If you want a boat just for you they charge 1200 pesos. We did not stay for the night it was too hot even for September.Report Check-In
Nice quiet place in the banks of the river. Lanchas price range is 700-800pesos per boat for 6-8 people depending on the operator/ size of the lancha. Extremely hot and wet during May (36-38 Celsius). Beautiful landscape. Just wait for some lanchas that are not full and join small groups of people (let the lancheros know that you wait for the perfect fit and they will do their best to find a group for you). The ride is extremely worth taking. Both Cascadas de Tamul & The Water Cave are awesome. We joined a group of 5 and paid 100 pesos pp. Amazing experience. Camp for free in the parking lot. Let the lancheros know that you will stay there. When we inquired, they said no problem but its good for them to know that you are around.Report Check-In
