This community was a really fun place to visit; it was the perfect spot to enjoy a bottle of wine on a blanket and watch the desert sunset and listen to the sounds of the wildlife. The various buses were spaced far enough apart that each site felt very private, yet had a cozy feeling that other people were near by in the middle of the desert. Hosts were very responsive, directions and site instructions were clear and helpful. Inside the tortilla bus was very comfortable and they had the nicest / cleanest outhouse set-up I’ve ever seen!

It was a fun place. My favorite part was having windows in the bus to see night sky and sunrise. Going into Madrid helped give full respective of this eccentric snd magical place and the surrounding area. We stayed in a bus and it was an interesting space. Nice opportunity to meet other campers.

THe most challenging thing about the venue was finding it during early evening rainfall.

This stay was so nice! It was a nice reprieve from city life. We sat outside and watched the moon and stars. The bus itself was beautiful and comfortable. I would absolutely come back!

Oh my goodness this place was charming! Perfect little desert getaway for one night from Santa Fe. Like camping, but a notch up- the bus was so very comfortable. Wish we could have stayed one more night for the live music!
