Odd that other larger coops like Abreojos don't have harbors like this. Pretty remote spot too. Hmmm...

The caretaker told us that it was owned by the same man who owns Baja Cactus & the Pemex next door, and that he owns the coop too. Said that's who we'd have to see to get permission to launch there.
Don't know how true that might be but that's what he told us.

before the harbor when it was just a fish camp I thought it was unusual to have the entire area chainlinked and gated off. I guess thats what it took to protect there fleet in such a remote location.....

If there is only one owner, i dont think it is a "coop" in the normal sense of the word. A coop by definition involves multiple controlling members.

Found a few pictures from our trip down there in July 2011. It doesn't show the actual spot where the harbor is now as they were just beginning to excavate at that time. It does show the pangeros coming back in and the conditions they had to contend with before the new harbor was completed. Ugly!

Holey Whitefish....that just doesnt seem....right. I cant think of one fishing coop that could spend that kind of $ on that high end facility. Lets hear what Antonio says...sounds very very strange to me too as fishing cooperativas change directors every year or so and have no "owner" but is owned by the members the fishermen themselves. Sure looks like another financial interest may be at work there. We sure would love one of those in Asuncion!

For anyone wondering where Pta. San Antonio is... see where the coastline changes direction, south of El Rosario...

WOW !

what a great looking facility ! so much better than san quintin without the long boat ride to get to the outside.

are they going to be hiring out pangas and if so, how much. doesn't look like much else is there.

if they're hiring out for fishing, would we have to stay in el rosario and drive back and forth for a few days fishing IF we don't have an rv or travel trailer ?

i like it BUT...don't like cartels and am allergic to bullets & machetes.

please keep us posted.

BIEN SALUD, DA RAT

do any of you really think an operation this size (now that Nomad has photos) could have ever got to this point if it wasn't legit? someone has their eyes on a part of the coast that's been forgotten. big money thinks generations ahead, unlike the rest of us!

All it needs is a few XOOXs, a condo tower (Condo de Antonio?), resort (Baja Cactus Plus), Pemex, and I am SO there!!!

Seriously, I don`t get the hoists. When a panga guy wants to launch his boat, he won`t use no stinking hoist. And when a panga guy wants to pull his motor, he will recover his panga on a trailer and go to work. 5 hoists?

In La Salina there are commercial guys going for clams, lobster, and urchins. They load and unload their boats with manpower. They don`t need a hoist!!

I've was there a few years ago when they were unloading lobster. Steady stream of trucks hauling butt back and forth from ER with barrels of ice / catch.
