This small campground is located within walking distance (10-15 minutes) from San Cristobal's city center and touristy pedestrian area. As other reviewers have noted there's a lot of shade, and the bathrooms and showers are among the best I've come across in almost two months of traveling in Mexico. The young caretaker is friendly and helpful. The Internet did not... More

We have a car and a tent. Rancho San Nicolas was perfect for us. We set up our tent in this campground for a few days. Showers, bathrooms, kitchen, yoga palapa. We had a great few days here.

Frequent detonations of celebratory fireworks for the many saint's days. There is a TelMex prepaid card telephone outside the entrance of the campgound. Walking distance from the front gate to the main... More

It was inexpensive, run by a very nice lady, a short walk just outside of San Cristobal. It is in a tranquil setting, very safe, and is a good place to meet interesting European backpackers and travelers of all sorts. I have returned to it a number of times and loved San Cristobal and Rancho San Nicolas in particular. I... More
