San Felipe - Quad & Wallet stolen at gunpoint


On Friday 04/7/2017 we were camping on site #’s 63-64 on the far left side of Pete's Camp and I took a ride at around 11:00p.m. 100-150 feet to the left (north) and was in front of El Dorado Ranch. I stopped there for a little while and that’s when another quad with two guys approached me coming from Pete’s camp. I didn’t think anything bad about it and I simply figured it was other campers coming from the camp. They made small talk with me in Spanish and then circled around me and returned, they got off their quad and the guy sitting in the back seat pulled a gun at me. The guy driving the quad searched my pockets and took my wallet, the guy with the gun then told me to leave at which point I ran to the edge of the beach and ran back to my campsite. I described the quad the two guys were on to the police and they mentioned that a quad like that was reported stolen 15 minutes before mine got stolen. I've been going to San Felipe for many years and have never encountered any issues. Keep your guard up and keep safe out there. Text

Been going there since late '80's, I try to keep up on incidents
there with tourists. One of the 1st involving armed robbery I
can remember, thanks for the heads up. Your post is another
I have to keep from the wife. Without too much
paranoia, for the 1st time, I've
gone thru a scenario with the wife of what I think would be an
a controlled reaction in case of a robbery, don't want her
over reacting. Crossed my mind the ratons may be from the US,
until you said they spoke Spanish

That sucks.... having a gun pointed at you bites.

Add to the mix having it happen in a country where law enforcement is fickle, well, it adds a special twist.

Sorry you had that experience.

Hayzeus effing crisco.....WTF is wrong with you people..? DavidK is one of the most positive helpful people on these boards. As an "Outsider" I appreciate his passion for Baja. Some of you are just so angry, cognitively dissonant A holes it is difficult to understand.

This is why I rarely visit and even more rarely post.

A picture of an empty campground is "positive input"? The crime situation in Baja is a very serious issue...

Oh Bull. The photo added nothing of value. The stick-up was in the desert. I usually ignore David K's posts unless they are a trip report. But sometimes they just get in the way. 1/2 of them are meaningless. At least this time it was only 1 photo and not 15@@@@@######%%%%%%.

Thanks for the support and laughs gang. I only wish I had more photos of the area north. If Louie800gs doesn't like my photo in his thread, I will happily remove it. It's no big deal other than what the haters make it into. ;)

No haters here, only in your mind...Lotsa people tired of your nothing off topic inserts into posts that need discussion. This one is an example. Crime with a gun and the usual reluctance to publicize same. Five additional killings since the one discussed earlier .....I sure don't hate you, pity you perhaps....

To the North, in front of El Dorado, is nothing like what is in the picture.

Haters, DavidK. Where did that come from? I like your trip reports. Just wish you did not ave to post distractions on all the other posts.

Never been to Pete's camp. Heard lot's about it from many friends and it just seemed to crowded for my liking so I just hotel'd it in SF overnighter to move on in morning.

Seeing the photo I know now it's looks like Rancho Grande but 2 rows deep and no privacy at all (even RG has those enclosed Palapas). Just took it off the bucket list...

Original poster said 100-150 feet north and that he ran to the "Edge of beach" then back to camp. How is that "out in the desert" Norte?
And looking at David's photo and the short distance he was north...those robbers were pretty ballsy...unless the "other campers from the camp" were some of the perhaps FEW who were there. As well this story with a solo rig in David's photo gives me the willies of loneliness in a place that has crime occurring.

The photo adds a lot if you can have a thought without the angst.
