To get to the Lower Field:

To get to the lower field in Las Golondrinas, come in through the red staff gate (using the code of 1314).  The red staff gate is just south of the main parking lot that is used by LG.
 
Once through the red staff gate, drive through the staff parking lot, through the opening in a wooden fence, and head through the gravel open-space.  The road will lead down to the lower field, but the road isn't well delineated until after the large open-air stage.
