February 19th, 2020 Mini cascade and river

Very nice place to spend the night. Small cascade. Access to a lot more in the terrain behind. River with water a little warmer. Very nice swimming. Cold showers and toilets. Private domain, but okay to camp for 50 pp.

February 18th, 2020 Near To the river

Perfect beautiful place to stay for a night or 2. You can swim here. Quiet, only birds, butterflies and cows :). Road is rough, but doable in any car if you take it slowly (and it is dry).
Walk to the waterfall from here is very easy and clear. Take the stairs down at the waterfall. It is gorgeous!

Now this place is an estacionamiente publico. We parked and stayed here for the night. It is next to the river. It is a bit complicated with all the people around asking money and telling other things, but after negotiating we paid 70 pesos for 24hours. No guid for the walk!

February 5th, 2020 Camping at restaurante Los Papalotes

Still here! Good pizza! You can camp around the restaurant for 50 pesos. Toilet and cold shower available. Hot shower you can get across the street. They offer good paragliding too, but we didn t try. (We ended up here because the lady across the street was very unfriendly. The view there is better, but they charge 100 pesos per arson and the shower did not work)

Very beautiful spot! Sea at both sides. Only the sound of the waves. Palmtrees and white sand beaches with driftwood. 9km dirtroad to get here, but in dry weather doable in any car.

But... they might sell it to build a resort :(. Preparations are made...

One can order parts for the other place you want to move :).

December 23rd, 2019 Frenomex

Very helpful owner! We needed new suspension and he arranged everything to get it fixed in La Paz the next day (with his brother, also in Frenomex). They moved though: they are close to the old place but in MAIN STREET. Very clear if you drive through.

December 22nd, 2019 Puerta Agua Verde

What a marvellous place!!!! The best of Baja? Probably... whatever direction you look: nothing but beauty. Good snorkelling, sub, swimming, fishing, fish jumping out of the water, a lot of wood, friendly people and dogs. We love it here! The road is really only 4wd. Take care and enjoy!
