We heard about this park several years ago and the report was 'moderate'. We decided to check it out on our way north from Mazatlan. Well, it has seen better days. Other reviews about expensive electric were on the money! Beach is very rocky at this spot, but nice a mile or two north. All the facilities were shut down incl. Wi-Fi. We were told the owner was an American ex-surfer boy and he ran it into the ground. We were also told by local residents that it was for sale but we were unable to get any details. Park is only 45' wide from fence line to fence line and the spaces, while level, are not angled to the drive and anything over 35' 'total length' would have a heck of a problem backing into a space! Also, the water pressure was non-existent and we ran on pump all day and used hose to fill fresh water tank at night. This took about 2 hours total. Very small town 2 miles north on dirt road that has all the basics plus a little. 16 mile run on freeway one way to get to supermarket. I would assume very hot here in summer similar to Mazatlan an hour away. I'm sure this park will close soon as so many down here have so if you decide to visit Check first. We certainly won't bother with it again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First problem..this park is a mile or so off main Hwy. into Mazatlan. Dirt road is not maintained & full of deep ruts from last rain. Park is gravel with level back in spaces but is only 45' wide. Big rigs will have problems. Price is good but you will pay arm & leg for electric. 4 dollars per day! There is 'no' beach at this location. CAUTION to poor swimmers...DEEP gravel with STRONG undercurrent. Wi-Fi is no longer available, laundry is very iffy, and restaurant never did open. Have stayed here twice & will now call it quits. Remote location with poor entry and lacks any luxury's what-so-ever. Best bet is to continue to Mazatlan. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The sites are nice with lots of flowers, and it is a quiet place near the ocean. Wi-Fi does not work. Almost every day the electricity was not working for a few hours. You cannot swim in the ocean all the time; sometimes the waves are way too dangerous. It is a nice place for a short term stay, but no more than that. When it rains, there is no way to leave the campground; its all dirt road around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairly easy access on about a mile of gravel road from the KM 75 marker on the southbound toll road. Wide diagonal back-in sites, 45' deep. The rate I cited is the monthly rate, divided by 30, excluding electricity. They are the only park of the four in the Celestino area that charges for power, and they charge four pesos/KWH (around 30 cents US). We used about 11 KWH/day (over three dollars), but the park average was six KWH/day. Park Wi-Fi is available only at the covered casino at the entrance to the park. Hookups are near the rear of most sites, requiring at least 25' of sewer hose for most rigs. In the two months we were there, we saw quite a few rigs come in without enough sewer hose to reach. There are bushes and trees between sites--some mature, some not. Power was fairly reliable, but voltage was often above 132 VAC, enough for our EMS to shut of power to our rig. I never saw it drop below 113 VAC. Sites closest to beach have 30 amp connections on 15 amp breakers. Most other sites are 30 amp, with a few 50 amp. Small laundry (two washers, one drier), but the sign up sheet system means you never have to wait for a machine. Washers were only 10 pesos (about 70 cents US) and the drier 20 pesos, by far the cheapest we have ever seen in Mexico, and very inexpensive anywhere. Shower/bathrooms were large and spotless. Water pressure at the sites was typical 15 PSI low Mexican pressure, but the showers had excellent pressure. The beach was sandy when we arrived, but became quite rocky after a few weeks from a strong current washing away the sand. Still good for playing in the waves, lying on the sandy part above the high tide line, etc. A truck comes every day delivering five gallon bottles of purified water for six pesos (45 cents US), but the camp water tasted fine. A vegetable truck comes twice a week. There are several small tiendas in Celestino, two miles of gravel road to the north, where you can get a few things, but there is a large supermarket in La Cruz, another 10 miles up the main highway. The park had the friendliest residents we have ever encountered in an RV park anywhere. Mostly Canadians; maybe that's why. :>) It is about a 45 minute 70 MPH drive to Mazatlan on the toll road (98 pesos), or about a half hour longer on the free road. Mazatlan has a Sam's Club, huge supermarkets (especially the Mega, with covered parking), and a large used (English) book store. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park no water pressure, you must run off your tank and pump. Rate is $150 pesos a night but electric is extra. Electric is expensive here. We spent 4 nights and even with running our rig on propane for both the water heater and fridge the fee was $140 pesos for electric. This makes the effective rate $19 per night. There is a new park next door "San Miguel RV Park" and their rate is $20 including electric. Certainly is less hassle for a true full hookup as you can leave everything on electric and run your air conditioner. Apparently there is a fourth park opening within one week on the same stretch of road as well. Attendance at Celestino RV Park was 40-50% and in the new park San Miguel was only 4 rigs with about 40 spaces available. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I stayed at Celestino RV Resort for one month, this park is good, It is ocean front, and there rates are in pesos, there are three other park in the Celestino area there price are all in USD. This park has meters at all the sites which means no more subsidising the large power consumers in the park. the power rates are 4 peso a KWH my power bill for the month was 640 pesos .. so my monthly stay was 3140 pesos I would say that this is a good deal. as stated in the other reviews you only pay for what you use. ( They promote conservation at this park.) They also post the daily avg. per RV on there Board which is 6 kWh per day. There is another review here which states that the used 140 peso for power in 4 nights. Wow, that's 35 kWh per day. The park has some of the best showers I have seen in Mexico, unlimited hot water and great rain heads. Their WiFi was down for part of the time while I stayed there, due to a part being shipped from the states, It worked good after they repaired it, the owner built a nice new WiFi cafe also at the front of the park with plans on serving food in the future. The other plus is the loop-through driveway which make coming and going so much easier. There rates are 2500 pesos month, 900 peso week, 150 peso a day. I visited all the parks in the area, this park is priced the best, has the largest sites , with the best shade trees and a open gate policy which means all the vendors are allowed into the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is great. We had one of the 35' wide sites, and there are wider sites for long term renters. There is great power here. The owner has done a great job, even has US-built electric pedestals with meters. You only pay for the power you use. And best of all, only 150 pesos per night, plus power. They also have built a new driveway out of the park so exiting is very easy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not quite sure why this park is so empty and the others are not. This park is a couple of years old now and is very clean and well maintained. The showers are spotless and there are beautiful palapas and an indoor meeting room. Water pressure is good. Power 132V. Wide level spaces. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi in the trailer no problem. This place deserves more business folks We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Although this is not the newest campground in the area it is the one I would most recommend due to the owners/hosts, Noe and his wife Esthella. They are absolutely over the top in ensuring the well being of their guests every need, including organizing trips and events (Mazatlan Carnival), acquisition of cell phones and plans that enable reasonable priced calling to the US and Canada, repairs to the RV, medical attention of any sort (Esthella is a practicing doctor and does great on site massages). Our visit was for 5 months and we will be returning next winter. It was apparent that they have a very loyal clientele as most people we met there were returnees. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Have not figured out how other guest say there are 30 sites, unless they are including the dirt lot next door (no services there). Place is very tight, small sitesand is a poorly layed out RV park. There are much better options in the area for less money. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is conveniently located just off the 15 freeway to Mazatlan. The owners go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. The spaces are a little tight and vehicles will have to be moved for you to get into a site. Big rigs can get in but it is not easy. They are in the process of adding more sights and 40 footers will have no trouble accessing these new spaces. The village has very limited shopping but 18 km. away the town of La Cruz has lots of grocery stores. One of the nicest parks in Mexico. Very popular in the winter season so reservations are recommended. The owner/manager speaks excellent English. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This little park is very nice. There is now an infinity pool and a full service restaurant. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. The park is right on the Pacific and has its own beach. It is quite small and friendly. It did not have Wi-Fi, but the owner's wireless modem was available for use if needed. Not the best Internet setup, but still OK for emergencies. All in all we loved staying here and highly recommend it anyone traveling in the area. Great stop on the way to Mazatlan. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the park for one week, it is the most peaceful park we have been in mexico. The owners live on site and since there is only 8 sites it is not crowded. The villas being built will mostly be used at Christmas and Easter by nationals. The washroom and shower are very clean. If you ask the owner Eugenia will cook you diner with fish you have purchased from the fishermen on the beach. We were able to get our e-mail using Villa Celeste resort wi-fi. According to the owner a pool will be built . We enjoyed our stay so much that we reserved for 5 months next winter'. Six of the 8 sites are already reserved. We camped here in a Motorhome.

23.80539N, 106.88066W This facility is really aimed at renting their villas, but they have eight RV sites. It opened in February 2009, and they were still building villas and had not yet built the swimming pool when we were there. Easy access for any size rig, but some sites are quite unlevel and two or three of the sites not big enough for a big rig. Very nicely landscaped grounds. No landscaping around the RV sits, which are decomposed granite, though. The sewer connections were uphill for any RV with a low dump valve like ours. High voltage; it was 136 VAC in the morning, falling to only around 120 under heavy loads in the afternoon. Very attractive palapa with restaurant and bar. Excellent beach--clean sand and nice surf. Shower and bathroom (one each) were spotless. They even provide a towel and robe in the shower. Internet access consisted of a cellular dongle that the owner loans to customers. Two of us that tried it (one with XP one with Vista) couldn't get it to work. We camped here in a Motorhome.
