(198 km/123 miles)
We continue north and our final leg is from the junction on Mex 1 until a junction where we will take a paved road 66 km down to the Sea of Cortez and the sleepy fishing village of Bahía de los Ángeles (“Bay of Angels”). We will spend 2 evenings and sunrises in one of the most scenic spots in Baja California. This will be dry camping as we will be staying in the abandoned Brisa Marina RV Park , although the dump stations still work! The local school has taken this site over, and charge a nominal fee to stay with all proceeds going directly to the school. Our tour includes a visit to town and “must see” museum. The campground is waterfront and has gorgeous sunrises, you can also take beautiful walks in either direction.
Next door to this RV Park is where our long time friends Tony and Bety Resendiz live and also run the Campo Archelon campground which is better suited for those without RVs. Tony and Bety are the original caretakers and researchers of the Turtle Sanctuary which is located beside Brisa Marina. We first met Tony on our first venture down Baja with our two children ages 2 and 4 in 1985. He invited us to his parent’s house in Mexico City for Christmas, which we graciously accepted and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. They have now both retired and unfortunately the sanctuary is no longer in operation. We can arrange many out trips for you to enjoy including: fishing, boat trip to the islands, swimming with sea lions, and eco tours. It tends to be quite windy here in December/January, so water activities will be dependent on the weather.
