Baja California Sur, Mexico

Mexico4-20

We left Guerrero Negro and drove on Mex #1 via Santa Rosalita to Mulegé. Bahía Concepción is one of the largest bays of Baja California, lying on the Sea of Cortez and features many great beaches. We enjoyed the town Loreto. From there we made a side trip to San Javier, a 16km road with lots of constructions that lead us through the “Sierra de la Giganta” to an old church. We met many great people and we enjoyed sharing all the travel stories. We really enjoyed camping on these beautiful beaches and the weather was so great that we slept outside under the stars with the fresh ocean breeze. We saw lots of dolphins and birds. We drove to La Paz and met Harald Pietschman who welcomed us in his beautiful home and we enjoyed his great hospitality and great tips. There are more places to see on Baja like Todos Santos or Cabos, but after being stuck in Guerrero Negro, Baja California Sur for almost 1 month, we were eager to get to the mainland of Mexico:-).We bought the ticket for the ferry to Mazatlan and the night before we spend at the beautiful beach in Tecolote.

One thought on “Baja California Sur, Mexico

  1. Like Willy Nelson’s song ( On the road again )
    Great pictures. Fabienne is a lot better at hand stands. I guess Ivan can’t do Yoga as well either. Lol
