We have a longer drive today but well worth it! we will dry camp in a National Park on the Sea of Cortez at Puerto Escondido , what could be more enjoyable? We will have access to WiFi, laundry & showers and a mini-super. We have an optional dinner planned at Porto Bello tonight, our friend Pedro Lopez has an excellent restaurant.
Puerto Escondido is bordered by a large, rugged mountain range called Sierra de la Giganta. In the main harbour parking lot, there still stands a stone building that was used to house a Generator before the complex was connected to the modern power grid. Puerto Escondido was the site of a planned resort, condominium, hotel, golf course and marina complex. Construction was started in the mid 1980s by a French investing group that partnered with the Mexican government and to date only the Marina complex has been completed.
