    Thieving Bum

    by bchurchill Updated Jun 15, 2006

    Enroute to Bahia you must stop and see the cave painting in Catavina. There is a new museum and tourist center about 500m west of the actual cave painting site. All of the information guides to baja will advise you to look for a palapa. Nearly directly infront if the Cave there are the remains of what may have been a Palapa. In the remains there is a bum that will try to extort money from you claiming it to be a park fee. There is absolutely no mistaking this individual for a government official. He is flithy, even by bum standards, and his nails are painted black. The problem is: you must park your vehicle in a location where it will be out of site for approx 2 minutes of your hike. I told the bum "si tocas a mi camioneta, te voy a matar", and it seemed to work. For most VT member i'm sure this is too aggresive, so either appease him and give him a buck or leave someone to watch your vehicle. About two more kilometers east there is a police station on the north side of the road. If you run into problems, advise the police.
