Overall Rating

At Campo Archelon for $8/night you can open your eyes to pure magic every morning. There is no easier way to wake up before 6, and fall soundly asleep before 8. Sleeping under a palapa can be described as primitive, among the insects and the elements, but you don't think about that when the only sound you hear is the waves gently brushing up against the shore, and the only thing you see is the sky burning red at sunrise or the brightly lit crescent moon hanging low in the star-filled night sky.

Archelon is what you see on the cover of a magazine. It is what you dream of when you think of camping on the sand under the stars. Even better, it is not accessible to those big motorhomes or trailers. A small Class-C or small trailer will fit, but this place is really shines for tent-campers or vans. Just park beside your very own palapa, kick your can doors open, and soak in the Baja life. Do make sure to sit out at night and watch the stars. And as is the case for all of Baja, the sunrise is amazing.

Bathrooms are right out of Gilligan's Island and there are showers, but don't expect much more than a trickle of water. This is the only place we have come across that has recycle bins too. The owners actually keep the place very well maintained and clean.

The hike out to the lighthouse (1.5 mile each way) is worth it. Kayaking seems to be good early in the mornings (advise from others that have been there longer) but be wary of the winds by late morning that continue until sunset. The waters can get very dangerous very fast.

If there was Wifi or Cell, at all, I'd stay here forever.
