Camping: For all of the following listings you may assume that eating or patronizing your host in some way is appreciated and in some cases expected while “free camping”. All information is accurate as of the date we visited. With many of the sites your own ability to negotiate or interact may affect what services are made available to you and at what price. We have converted prices from local currency to US dollars at the exchange rate in effect at the time of use. The amount shown is the amount that we paid per night for two people. Although rare you may encounter additional fees if you are traveling with multiple people.

Oaxaca City is at the intersection of highways 135, 175, and 190 from the Pacific; 190 from Mexico City; 131 from Puebla; and 175 from the Bay of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico. While in Oaxaca City, in the state of the same name, we are staying in the Oaxaca Trailer Park. The park is in moderate condition with typical Mexican bathrooms and HOT showers. Water is in extremely short supply here so there is no water at the rather large, mostly shaded spots. The park attendant, Eucario, will gladly drag a hose from the cistern to fill your tanks. There is inconsistant 15 amp power and dump access at every spot. At the time of this writing I am picking up a decent wireless internet signal from the adjacent office building. The park is located on Violeta street off 190 on the NE side of town. Violeta is called Manuel Ruiz off the 190. Turn North at the McDonalds following the sign to Colonia Reforma. This is a wide road and the large access to the park is suitable for big rigs. The gate is on Violeta on the left hand side as you head North. Pets are welcome and the rates are reasonable. The posted RV rate is $200 Pesos per night, however we were only asked for $150. Because we plan to go to Spanish school and spend Semana Santa in Oaxaca, we are staying for a month. The monthly rate is $3,500.00 Pesos.
