What do travelers say?

We planed to stay a couple of days but ended up staying 3 weeks!!
An excellent location with all the amendments we over landers need and more. It's a family business owned by two brothers. When staying there you just feel a part of the family. They are very friendly and helpful.

For Overlanders it's got it all, hot, clean showers and rest room, huge flat grounds for the likes of MAN size rigs, clean huge kitchen, nice loung, dinning room, and the property has trails galore. The owners are wonderful friends of ours now. Could not feel more welcome anywhere we have been. Oh the dogs are to die for. Come

The vibe of this place made us staying for a month! David, Humberto and Daniel were so nice that it was difficult for us to leave. Our rig of 25 feet fitted perfectly. It has rooms with breakfast or a tent with mattress and electricity (glamping!). Places for making fires and a huge kitchen with everything you need. located in Santa Elena, an amazing mountain to be far from the city!!

Big, grassy terrain with excellent, newly built ablutions, well equipped kitchen, facilities for manual or machine washing, fireplace in large general room. Very friendly and helpful owners. The campground is at the corner of the Parque Arví forest with walking trails.

We can definitely recommend the place. Very helpful owners. Great views from the property. If you are into mountain biking, there is a nice (but advanced) trail right behind the campground. Can also be used for hiking. Nice to do laundry, too

El lugar tiene una ubicación increíble sobre la montaña, a la entrada del parque Avir. Que más se puede pedir el dueño es muy muy amable, el lugar es perfecto para acampar camionetas


What a find. We have stayed here for over a month re-grouping and re-charging.
As previously noted, plenty of room for all sizes, full kitchen, electrical power with extension cord, potable water, HOT shower and usable wifi.
Owners and hosts, David and Daniel speak good English and helped us immensely from getting US propane tank re-filled, helping us get a package shipped from US, getting a driver for a few trips and most importantly, letting us 'borrow' their handyman employee to fix a leaking camper roof.
Sorry to leave.
