Camping tent or Bungalow? Which one is better?

When you decide to go to a campsite, you often find yourself with 2 options: camping on a pitch or booking a bungalow. Which one is better? Here we tell you the advantages of each one, so that you can choose the option that best suits you:

Number of people

One of the points you have to take into account when choosing between camping in a tent or staying in a bungalow is the number of people. In a bungalow the space is larger. Generally tents are for 2 people, and when there are more, you have to think about a bigger tent, with a kitchen and more things to move and set up.

This is one of the great advantages of the Bungalow: you don’t have to set up anything, there is enough space and you are in an area where you can enjoy the camping atmosphere.

On the other hand, if you decide to camp, you have to check what services the campsite offers and in what conditions they are in. This could be the difference in whether you have an extraordinary camping experience or not. Check out this article where we tell you everything you need for camping and the details you should take into account.

Depending on the season

In winter and much of autumn you can get very cold if you stay in a camping tent. You will need to have a tent and specialized accessories for the season, such as a winter sleeping bag, etc. Remember that temperatures drop the most at night. When you go by caravan or motorhome, you will not have the problem of cold or rain. The bungalows are air-conditioned and are ideal for a more comfortable stay in winter.

In the summer season it can be a fun experience to stay in your camping tent, unlike in winter, especially if you go with children.

The services

When you stay in a camping tent, the campground offers common areas for personal grooming. In the Bungalows you don’t have to go outside to go to the toilet, as they are located in the same cabin.

Natural contact

One of the advantages of both the camping tent and the bungalow is the contact with nature and outdoor activities. Campsites are usually located in areas where you can enjoy beautiful scenery and have areas for outdoor sports. They can also be close to the beach and many have swimming pools and offer other recreational areas and activities as in Camping Jávea.
