Good people, friendly and kind both the Mexican population and the RV park dwellers.
The bank has been closed and now banking transactions must be don e in Sta Rosalia.You can get a good rate US$ to pesos from the gas station operator. Travellers cheques are virtually useless now - even in small town banks because of so much fraud..you are best off to use your visa card but not to get US cash as they ding you very hard at the Cr. Card place across from the Telephone Booth. Carry US $'s but only a small amount at a time and dont flash rolls of US cash in front of people you dont know even in hotels and restaurants. Do your banking in Sta Rosalia, try to carpool there, anyway it has a fab bakery. If you need more info..as I managed a hotel there in the late 80-'s you can contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Fondest memory: Maria Isabellas RV park with that fabulous Bouganvilla climbing to the very top of a tall palm tree anlso the beaches and the nice people esp. the great chilaquiles serv ed at Javiers Las Casitas Hotel Restaurant. Also they make a mean margarita-scrumtious. Say Hi to Javier he's a terrific person and will help you with what's going on....by the way what are the dates for the 300 yr. anniversary in November, 2005...I want to be there. RVing from Vancouver B.C. Canada - leaving in mid October 05.
Favorite thing: Here is a gnarly tree, and the pink stuff you see on the right side are empty sea shells... not sure how they ended up there in such quantity or what their purpose is, since the water wasn't that close by...
Some beaches have signs to their entrance, and some don't. Try to get a guide book before, or if you don't have a car, you can hire a local tour guide to take you to the beaches, cave paintings, etc...
The water is very transparent, too bad it was cloudy...
Favorite thing: This is the road to one of the beaches around Mulege... Someo f the beaches offer "cabins", camping and RV grounds, right in front of the water!
