It's nice to go there just to look at. But if you are hungry as well, do not miss its lovely Mexican and French breads and pastries. Baguettes are also avaiable.
As you enter the town you'll find some street vendors selling tacos. While one might normally be wary of trying out food from such folks, my experience here has been absolutely positive.
Favorite Dish: Generally offered are Tacos des Camarones (shrimp) and Tacos des Pescados (fish). Both are excellent but I'm a big shrimp fanatic so usually opt for these. While most of my colleagues had 1 or 2 for lunch, I usually had 4!!! Mmmm, mmm, good!Related to:

Santa Rosalía Nightlife
Well while your friends our drinking at a local watering hole, you can be having a real adventure. During the squid season, you can go out with a local fisherman and catch these giant Humboldt Squid that can weigh up to 100 pounds. This may sound an odd way to spend an evening but when you consider that you are out in the water with hundreds of other boats each hangning a lantern from a post and looking like you are in the midst of a 1000 stars in a night sky it gets pretty amazing. These squid are caught by hanging a glowing jig down deep in the water and when the squid grab on they are caught on the barbs. Work fast or other squid may eat your before you get it to the surface.
Dress Code: Casual working type clothes. Dress as if you were going fishing.Related to:

Santa Rosalía Warnings and Dangers
Most travelers drive through as the town developed a reputation for having Pemex stations that were not charging correctly, charging a few extra pesos per liter.
While I've not experienced this issue the few times I've stopped for gas, it's something to note and to know what to expect to pay at the Pemex pumps.Related to:
