She loves to chat about the old days when the park was across the street and much bigger. Her family is very helpful and compassionate and they also speak half decent english as well.

We have heard that Anita and her family make incredible authentic dishes, so if they invite you, be sure to dine with them.

Campground user 950.9 Los Pinos RV Trailer Park This RV Trailer Park was difficult to find off the main Boulevard Tepic-Xalisco, but it turned out that is because the entrance is in a commercial Plaza (InterPlaza) beside a OXXO (and across the street from Pemex 7989). The park itself has a clearance of 13 feet to get into, but once inside there are about 12 nice grass spots. Each spot has a leveling pad and a cement pad for tables/chairs/cooking etc. There is a small washroom with running water, flush toilets (with toilet seats) and a shower stall. Electricity, Water and Dumping is also located at each site. There is also a small hotel (correction; it's appartments, not for rent; this is camping only) on the property, but it looks a little run-down.

For anyone who has read the "on the Road" remarks online, it is true - this place is a little rough around the edges and the owner expects travelers to pay 200 peso a night for nearly no amenities. There is no Wifi, the toilets are dirty, the water is running but do not expect it to be hot, there is no shade, tables and probably no security either. We chose to abandon our plan of sleeping in the van for the night and (made the unusual choice) to try out the "Motel" (if you know what I mean) across the road for 250 peso (for all night). The Motel was actually the best deal we had had all day and after a long day of traveling we were pretty pleased to find AC, privacy, cleanliness, hot water, security, internet and friendly staff.

The Beach extends for kilometers down the coastline but there is not a lot of surf - Aside from the wind waves, it is pretty calm. There are tonnes of shells on the beach, and it is fun to walk the shoreline marveling at the different types and colors.

The road is dirt and packed sand. Okay for cars, trucks and maybe small trailers. Not great for motorhomes as it is narrow and overhanging trees. Hot springs with improved pools, flow control concrete trenches, benches, trees, bathrooms and a caretaker. For a small fee you can stay a day ($20P) or pay for two days and stay overnight. Longer stays are fine. This is popular on weekends with locals so expect kids, loud music, bbqs and beer. But it clears out Sunday night. We were alone on Monday morning (except the horses that stopped by). There is a large pool. An outdoor shower. Bathrooms with flush toilets and sinks. Numerous spaces to park in. Could hang a hammock and soak at a wide variety of temps. The road in was a little rough but not impassable. Saw the usual compact cars loaded with families getting through just fine. Located about 10 miles outside Aconchi, Sonora. Follow the well used dirt road.

There are over 20 individual sites with private concrete and boulder hot tubs surrounded by palms for modesty. Each site has a bench, table, grill, fire ring and tent area. Additional sites have everything but the hot tub. The road to this location is well marked from the highway. Turn off is outside Mexicali. Twenty seven miles of VERY washboardy, rough road to a right fork and then seven more miles of bumpy with some areas of rock. Not suitable for the average passenger car. Not suitable for large RVs. We did see a few SUVs there including a Subaru wagon. The price is $50usd per space for unlimited people per night. Does not appear to be negotiable. The price is high for Baja, but once you have conquered the road, the tubs are a welcome respite. There is a hike to waterfalls up the canyon- 3 lengths of time to choose from. They are Boulder trails with beautiful vistas. There appears to be some climbing areas as we saw a group with ropes and supplies. Bathrooms are fairly clean and shower stall is a wooden room with pipes in thermal water. The small store carries only canned and dried goods and is rarely open. No other food or supplies available. There is reportedly a website to make reservations but we didn't use it. Just showed up.

In the archaeological site you can camp because it has a field at the entrance and a serene charged input from 7am to 17h.

No features amenities only a source of "clean" water that can be used for cooking, washing and fill the water tank of your camper. While there has bathroom, you will find many shrubs that can serve as a natural latrine.

Whatever you do don't go over the bridge. Turn in your tourist visas first at Immigracion, then go through a massive vehicle scanner, and then to the tiny white Banjercito building to cancel your vehicle permit and get your deposit refund. Do this BEFORE you go through the toll booth by taking the last tiny left road immediately before the toll booth. If you go through the toll by accident, just before you go on the bridge turn left tightly to get to Immigracion. Ask the border security for help. Your RV will also go through a giant scanner, dimensions 4.2m high x 2.6m wide. There is a $67 peso toll. Due to the strange layout and tight turns it is not really big rig friendly. We are 25' long.

About 20 basic rooms, all with fan, some with a/c for 100 pesos more. Right on beach with mediocre restaurant that closes early. Nice shaded pool. Beach is rocky and dangerous for swimming but ok to play in surf. Across the street fronting the soccer field lives a man named Prieto, the head of the community volunteer turtle conservation group. He and 20 volunteers patrol the beach every night to gather and protect newly laid eggs.

To support the project the cooperative runs a restaurant, cabanas and offers camping in a large open field. The cabanas are simple yet clean. Beds have mosquito nets and water is 1 temperature. Sea turtles nest on the beach May - December and once a month they arrive en masse in "arribatas" when 100,000 can come ashore over 3-5 days. If you're really lucky, hatchlings emerge at the same time as an arribata and you will see females coming ashore to lay and baby turtles coming out of the sand to make their way to sea. The guided tour costs 130 pesos and is worth the stop. 3-bed cabana cost 500 pesos. Located just before the village of Escobilla, about 40 mins south of Puerto Escondido on Hwy 200. Look for the blue sign on the ocean side of the road. 5 STARS for the experience of seeing an arribata (if you time it right and/or are lucky.)

San Ysidro to Tijuana city center and Otay Mesa. For day trippers to the northern end of Baja with little desire to see the actual city center in Tijuana, it makes little difference which crossing you use as long as you have your insurance in order or if you already have obtained all documents online. You may want to avoid the throngs of rush hour traffic at the San Ysidro crossing to city center Tijuana though. For people who intend to stay longer than 72 hours and therefor need a tourist card and who may want a Temporary Vehicle Import Permit, I recommend crossing at the Otay Mesa which is about 12 km east of the city center. This crossing is very easy to access via the USA side from the freeway and feeder freeways I-5 and I-805 and the 125 South Bay Expressway. On the Mexican side the offices for TC and TVIP are very straight forward to find. After crossing it is fairly simple city driving to get to Mex 2 East or to ride into the heart of the city and find Mex 1 South. For those who are still undecided if they will sail to mainland MExico, the TVIP can also be obtained at the Pichilingue / La Paz ferry terminal and no TVIP is required if you take the ferry from Santa Rosalia to Guaymas. If this applies to you, you could get only the Tourist Card here. If you are certain of a La Paz ferry trip then you might as well get he TVIP here while you are stopped anyway.

The tienda across the street (the only one in town) had bright lights and loud music playing into the night, but we are just happy to have a safe place to sleep for the night.
