The Rotarty Club in Mulege sponsors this annual event to raise funds for local charities. Spectators are encouraged to wager for...more

Doesn't look like much from the street and it's a bit eclectic in side, but the food and Margaritas are great. I had a chicken enchalatas that not only were steaming when they arrived to our patio table they stayed warm as the plate was quite hot. Tasted home made. My wife liked the fish while I preferred to stick to classic chichen dishes. Both...more

Like most of the tourist shops, Aldolofo's carries a bit of everything but mostly Serape's, t-shirts, knick-knacks and ceramic plates. BIG ceramic plates. I think my wife "negotiated" for 30 minutes to get the price to 50% of list. Then I got to discover just how big they were and began to worry they would not fit on the plane in "carry-on" storage. They didn't but luckily they only took 3/4 of the space under the seats (yes both) in front of me. AND luckily there was no one on the flight to LA. Unfortunately there was someone in the window seat from LA to SF and I had to balance them on my feet to get them at an angle to not encroach on the other person too much. Luckily they made it without a scatch.
What to buy: T-shirts and large hand made, and painted ceramic serving platters. There were some very unique designs.
What to pay: NOT list price. Negotiate the best deal you can get and if you're not certain, just walk away. If they will come down a bit more they will come after you.
The highway between Loreto and Mulege is notorious for a number of things (narrow, speeding, solid yellow lines are decoration) but the one thing you can count on is the military checkpoint about 40 KM from Loreto.
Normally if you're southbound, you'll just get waved through, but most times, the northbound traffic is halted and you must get out of the car while they search it. And the DO search it.
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.
