Backtracking to Santispac

We don’t usually backtrack, but we had been unable to get into Santispac for some beach camping on our way north from Cabo  so we went to Mulegé first. There is a caravan that is leaving Santispac by 9 AM,

If it is Monday it must be Mulegé

It’s a short 85 miles from Loreto to Mulegé today. It’s a winding road through the peninsula and back to the Bay of Conception. The road hugs the shore. The beach camps are beautiful: El Requeson, Hotel and Playa Buenaventura,

Loreto, Better the Second Time Around

Filled with all the sights and sounds of Cabo San Lucas, it was time for the caravan to begin its return north. The return trip hits some of the spots we stopped at on the way down, but also adds

Everything is “Almost Free” in Cabo San Lucas

It’s only 100 miles today from La Paz to our end destination, Cabo San Lucas. We passed through the usual inland terrain of hills and farms; at Todos Santos we moved back to hug the coast. We did not stop

Wasting Away in Margaritaville (actually, Loreto)

  Finally, no 7 AM start. This has been one downside of traveling in a caravan. You have to go when they do. No deciding to walk the beach and get a later start, or to spend an extra day

Whale Watching in Guerrero Negro

Hubby prepared for today’s anticipated white-knuckle driving with half a Zanex. We left the boulders of Catavina, entered a small mountain pass and headed across a high mesa that is a remnant of a dry lakebed. The roads are 9.5

Caravaning to Catavina
