💡 By the way, what's a spot ?
In the different type of areas listed on CaraMaps, you can choose to check the type called "spot", but what does this term mean?
A spot is an unofficial place, that is to say without any ground markings or precise parking signs, that a CaraMaps user has found during his trip and has decided to share with the travellers' community.
There is usually no service and it may be located in a rather isolated area. Indeed, the spot is often located in the middle of nature - on the seaside - at the foot of a mountain; sometimes in an idyllic place. You usually stay there for one night before continuing your trip, but it can also be a place to have breakfast, picnic or take a break during a long journey.
In short, the spot is synonymous with freedom and adventure so don't hesitate to share your best spots on CaraMaps!
