Cataviña Warnings and Dangers

    Driving through the desert can be trying even in the best of circumstances. Combine hot, desert with narrow 2-lane roads with sharp turns and hills and in some places no shoulder should oncoming traffic happen to be in your lane and you have a very exciting ride.

    Now add to this a minimum of 100 miles with NO GAS and at times 225 miles should the two sparsely spaced Pemex stations in the only two villages between "major" cities and you have a real recipe for a gut wrenching drive.

    For the uninitiated, Catavina may be the only salvation for gas, only you don't know what you are really getting and you don't know how much it will cost as it's coming out of an opaque barrel in the back of a relatively rickety pickup truck that looks like it might not even move.

    Still it is an option if you find you forgot to fill up in either San Quintin to the north or Guerrero Negro to the south and Jesus Maria and El Rosario "conveniently" were out of gas.
