Baja Mexico Caravan Adventure, Part 2 (Note: Click on pics for a larger view)
Day 4, 1 Febrero. San Ignacio is a typical authentic Baja village built around an oasis in a vast sea of desert. They say there are more palms than people in the town. We stayed at Rice and Beans RV Park. It was a cozy campground with a good restaurant. We visited the town and its historic church. The plaza was dominated by several gigantic ficus trees. Whale watching is available from here to San Ignacio lagoon on the Pacfic coast about an hour drive away.
Days 5,6,7 Febrero 2-4 We have crossed the Baja Peninsula and arrived at the Sea of Cortez AKA Gulf of California. We passd through the copper mining town of Santa Rosalia before reaching the village of Mulege. Playa Santispac, just south of town, would be our campsite on the beach for 3 nights. We all said “this is it!” Gorgeous views, wide crescent beach, islands just into the Bahia de Concepcion. Paradise. We had another margarita fueled pot luck on the beach. Some of the group enjoyed nearly pure tequila margaritas at Armando’s Restaurant. We met a full time resident who grew up in Miami and attended Killian High school. Small world. Weather was unseasonably cool and very windy. We’ll be back here later in the trip hoping for better conditions.
