Guerrero Negro Things to Do

  • Superb Whale Watching in Ojo de Liebre

    there are lots of companies that take you whale watching in Guerrero Negro but we really enjoyed driving out to the inner lagoon in our own vehicle and camping there to listen to the whales breathing at night.When you drive yourself to the lagoon, you can go on a panga whenever you want...they leave on demand. There is a beautiful Interpretive...

  • Tour the Worlds largest salt works

    Several Motels offer tours of the salt works for up to $35 a person, but if you go to the ESSA company's main office, you can arrange a tour for FREE! They provide a guide who drives your vehicle and give a full tour of the salt works. You can get out and take photos anytime. Only problem is, the guide only speaks spanish so you might want to take...

  • WHALE-WATCHING

    Guerrero Negro is the best place (other than San Ignacio) to come for the whale-watching tours. There are a number of places in town which can provide this service, but see MALARRIMO restaurant and accommodation tips, as these people have a big, reliable tourism service.Malarrimo has a fleet of 23-foot boats, which depart to SCAMMON's LAGOON.They...

Guerrero Negro Restaurants

  • Don't Miss the FRESH Scallops!

    We have been going to this restaurant for 30 yrs when we first started our exploration down the Baja Peninsula when we lived in San Diego. At that time, it did not have the motel, RV Park, Whale-watching tours or gift shop that are now on the premises.I must say that overall, the wonderful atmosphere of the restaurant and quality of food have...

  • Malarimo - Great Margaritas and fish

    Don't let looks deceive you. In Mexico on the road, many road side establishments may look a bit "weathered" but you still must investigate to find out. If there are "locals" present you must definitely try it.The chips and salsa were just "ok." OK, I've been spoiled with places that make FRESH chips each time a customer orders, but the salsas...

  • Real Mexican Food

    You won't have a problem finding real, authentic Mexican food in this town. There are some seafood restaurants which cater to gringos (I avoided them). Cheese enchiladas with Mole sauce. That is my favorite dish. Mole is the national dish of Mexico.

    There is plenty of whale memorabilia in the local shops. Most of the stuff is hand crafted. I bought a silver gray whale statue and silver whale fluke along with a onyx mother whale & baby.

    What to buy: Gray whale memorabilia. Nice handmade soaps.

    What to pay: Very reasonable prices.

Guerrero Negro Warnings and Dangers

    Guerrero Negro is the border between northen Baja and Southern Baja California Sur. Just before the military checkpoint, there is an "agricultural checkpoint" to make certain you don't bring in any stray bugs. While not a real "inspection" you get to pay 30 pesos for the opportunity to have your car "deloused."

    After you pay your inspection fee you drive through a "fountain" that sprays the underside of your car with a disinfectant. It has a definite chemical smell so close the windows and turn on recirculating air if you have it.

    Guerrero Negro is surprisingly the largest salt producing area in the world. The salt flats go on for miles. The area is difficult to access and heavily guarded. The father of a friend of mine used to oversee the production process. He now is semi retired but still lives near the town.

    Favorite thing: Don't forget to add an hour to your clock after you cross into Baja Sur, since it is Mountain Time Zone.
