    Hwy to San Javier

    by Agraichen Written Sep 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The road to San Javier starts with a new section of pavement. For the first mile you are under a false sense of relief. Then reality sets in and for the next 30 KM you are on gut wrenching, kidney jolting, shock (auto) breaking, gravel, rock, and dirt road to reach you destination.

    While the trip is worth it from a picturesque and historical perspective, you must be prepared for the trip. It is long (well only 1.5-2 hr) and there are NO convenience stops along the way.

    So, travel prepared. It is worth the trip.

    They may be small but they do sting

    by Agraichen Updated Dec 30, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When walking into the waters of Loreto Bay, shuffle your feet, don't step. The water is full of very small (8 inches across) Sting Rays. While cute, they are not as friendly as the larger ones that frequent Sting Ray City in the Carribean (pictured below). They are not as harmful as the larger versions, but they still pack a painful sting. Think about sticking a small pin into your leg. While not debilitating, the sting will be painful for a bit. I carry a small vile of white vinegar to apply as a home remedy until medical attention can be found.

    7 days after the hurricane

    by Agraichen Written Dec 21, 2008

    Like clockwork, 7 days following heavy rain (AKA hurricanes) the mosquitos begin to arrive. They are small but carry a very large bite. Make certain you lather on repellant if you go outside at night and even during the day watch your self.

    Denegue fever has been one of the warnings this year.

    Paying taxes

    by Agraichen Written Dec 30, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For anyone that builds a home in Loreto, be mindful of the methods used to pay certain bills. Water, electric and property tax bills are not just mailed to you. The water and electric bills can actually be just tacked to your front door. The property tax bill is available a the municipality city hall in Loreto. Each January you go to the municipality, get the costs an pay your bill.

    Parking Fees at the Airport

    by Agraichen Written Jan 7, 2014

    With "progress" comes the downfall of some things. When the "airport" was a thatched roof building with one terminal you could park anywhere you could find a spot. Now with the "new" terminal, there's a parking lot and even short term parking is charged. The cost ... 15 pesos whether you stay for 5 minutes or an hour. There are signs indicating that long term parking will be allowed for a few more pesos.
