December 25th, 2018 Los Coyotes (Bahia de Concepcion)

This is a wonderful beach especially for those with watercraft like kayaks and paddleboards. It is absolutely gorgeous and the small community of annual return campers are friendly. There's even a little outdoor "library." Camping is right next to the water, but be careful to not park too close a low tide or the tide could come in and you could find yourself in the water!

This is a GORGEOUS spot, probably one of the most scenic of all the Bahia Conception beach camping areas, therefore there are usually many visitors. It helps if all of us with big rigs park perpendicular to the beach to allow room for all who wish to stay. Sand fleas are only pesky only in early in the season, usually Oct/Nov. It is this way on all the beaches. The restaurant on the beach has great food, and tamale, fish, vegetable, non-potable fresh water, etc. vendors will sell you whatever else you need. Just beware of the cowboy offering horseback outings; my friend had an experience during which she was continuously groped inappropriately while the cowboy attempted to get her and her partner drunk on some suspiciously overly "strong" tequila. LADIES, KEEP YOURSELF SAFE AND IF YOU WANT TO RIDE, DO NOT DRINK ANYTHING OFFERED. Anyway, this beach is a splendid location for paddling sports because of proximity to numerous islands.

If you visit this campsite, come prepared with the right vehicle. I would not recommend it for large or wide rigs as the road in is extremely narrow and lined tightly with cactuses that scratched the sides of my trailer. Additionally, while I camped there I watched 2 different cars without 4wd get stuck in the sand. Also, thefts have recently been reported here, so keep an eye on your personal items. That said, it's an average rocky beach that doesn't offer much protection from the wind. May be good for a quick overnight if you have the right vehicle.

This is a very small beach with minimal sites for big rigs. It is best for tent campers and small 4x4 rigs and vans. The palapas are always occupied by long-term snowbirds, and there are only a couple of other sites for rigs that don't require driving on soft sand (that looks deceivingly sturdy). The road in is rough and rocky. The vibe is super chill here, so I wouldn't come here to party wildly or you might find you are shushed by the mellow long-termers. There is some hiking above the beach and the kayaking is great. Watch out for rattlesnakes onshore at all times and for a huge population of stingrays in the shallows beginning in April.
