    Loreto Things to Do

    Tabor Canyon is a "hike." Starting off in an arroyo full of rocks, it quickly narrows to about 20-30 meters and the boulders get larger and larger. The hike is quite strenuous and not for those that are not in shape or have health issues. There are a few locations where you must traverse cliffs using narrow toe and hand holds and some very large...

    Guerrero Negro Off The Beaten Path

    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.

    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.

    Professional, nice and friendly. They know each one of the whales that come in the winter! The family loves the whales and are quick to tell you stories about them. Knowing a bit of Spanish, showing respect and not acting like a typical American helps to warm them up abit.
