    Cabo San Lucas Warnings and Dangers

    Even though the resorts in Los Cabos are located on the Pacific Ocean you can NOT swim there. The riptides are much to strong and dangerous. There are some resorts on the bay that you can swim in as well as a town beach. We drove up to Todos Santos and did some surfing up there. You need to ask locals for directions to the surfing beaches. They are...

    Loreto Warnings and Dangers

    Parking at Puerto Escondido used to be free. During the development of the area most people wondered why roads to nowhere were being installed. 10 years later there is still no development but there is still lots of talk. However there is allegedly a new owner of the area and there are once again guards at the entrance gates telling you there is a...

    Cabo San Lucas Warnings and Dangers

    Cabo is sick. It is way fun and i even lived there for a little. Just be careful as you would in any other city. If anything happens to anyone it is just becuase they got unlucky and were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Loreto Warnings and Dangers

    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 above). They are not as harmful as the larger versions, but they still pack a painful sting. Think...

    Cabo San Lucas Warnings and Dangers

    The water in Cabo can cause stomach issues, drink bottled water, most restaurants serve bottled water. We ordered blended drinks from a lot of places, never got sick. Drank bottled water always...we were fine. Most hotels have systems, check with them upon arrival. Brush your teeth with bottled water to be safe. We have friends who live there, they...

    Loreto Warnings and Dangers

    The road to San Javier is no longer the adventure it once was (as pictured) . The road has now been paved from Highway 1 all the way to the Mission. However, the storms of 2014 not only destroyed the cave paintings 8 miles up the road, but they also caused a huge landslide that brought down hundreds of tons of dirt and boulders taking out the road...

    Cabo San Lucas Warnings and Dangers

    Car Rental Companies are a ripoff! We booked a rental car from the states. Called the company to make sure all fees had been quoted. Well when we got there they wanted a radical deposit! Like $1500 posted to a credit card! Ouch! It was a nightmare. I don't know about you but I don't have an extra $1500 available on a credit card to be held while...

    Loreto Warnings and Dangers

    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...

  • You get what you pay for!

    Anyone who knows me, knows that I like to save money. However, when it comes to boat travel, I will never again choose the cheapest option.I had booked a 4hr tour to Isla Espirtu Santo from La Paz with the Hotel Miramar. We departed from the Restaurant Bar at El Tecolate beach. The waves were quite high but we were assured that it was safe. Well,...

  • Livestock on the roads at night!

    Livestock in the Baja are free roaming. They wander onto roads including the main highway, usually after dusk. Be careful and slow down if you must drive at night. I was driving along when I saw these to bulls going at it. It soon got too dark for me to see the outcome... so I continued on. ;-)

  • Be prepared

    If you plan to drive extended distances in Baja make sure you are well prepared. There are hundreds of miles of road where you will see nothing as far as civilization goes. When you do come upon a small village or town, don't expect that you'll find the supplies you need. It's best to be as self sufficient as possible. Stock up on what you'll need...

  • Watch your fuel gauge!

    Fuel stations in Baja can be few and far between. If you are driving yourself down the peninsula, make sure you have an idea where the stations are and be prepared for long hauls. When I was traveling here in January 1998, there was a fuel shortage. I think the trucks were late or couldn't make it down because of flooding up north. It was El Nino...

  • Pemex station near the Los Cabos airport

    We did not have any problems during our stay and always felt safe. The trip went without incident until we headed to the airport to go home. There is a Pemex station just before you get to the airport. This is the most likely place to fill your rental car before turning it in. The attendent, with an accomplice, did an effective job of keeping me...
