Nomad campground and motel recommendations for San Junaico to Cabo, please.


With the distance so great, I don't get into Baja Sur as much as I would like.

What are places you like to use for camping and reasonably priced overnight rooms at the following places or others?:
San Juanico (Scorpion Bay), Lopez Mateos, Puerto San Carlos, and south to the tip.

More interested in small town location than cities, but if you can suggest a good place in Cabo, La Paz, etc. that would be appreciated.
Thank you! I will visit as many as I can on my next trip.

Thank you!

This will be a beneficial thread for me too as I'm doing this same course in a few.

Hotel Mar de Cortex in Cabo gets good reviews and relatively cheap.

We really liked this hotel when we went years ago - we had Rex with us at the time.

The spelling lady is suggesting you fix spelling of SAN JUANICO on your thread title!

If surfing, you may want to visit goofy footer Punta Conejo.

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times. Very nice rooms, pool, restaurant. Across the street from Cabo Wabo. Two blocks to the marina, and great shopping nearby.

There's an RV park in the middle of Ciudad Constitucion on the east side of the highway. We spent one night there. Nothing special but a safe, convenient place to spend the night if you're in an RV.

I like Martin Verdugos Las Barriles for my RV as well as the hotel. Most everything you need is within walking. Nice and clean and family run. A little noisy in the morning when the boats go out but other than that, no complaints.

just got back from Puerto san carlos. spent a half day there, cool beaches all around. don't worry a bit about the dirt road that connects the paved roads to lopez mateo and san carlos, through romaditas, smooth and fast. i took it north (from the san carlos rd. to romaditas) then NE to insurgents. San Carlos had quite a few small motels.

Campestre Maranatha


Dave, the Maranatha campground west of La Paz is a great resource for Baja Sur travelers. Here is a link to a reply I posted to a thread last year;

Hi David,

When in Puerto San Carlos:


Quote: Originally posted by carlosg  
We visited Puerto San Carlos just before "Semana Santa", we stayed at "Brennan Hotel": clean, very basic, not good tv, secured parking, no restaurant but they do have a fishing guide on hand that may be helpful. We had dinner at "Restaurante Lore" right on the corner up a couple of steps: not good; but next door to it there's a smaller not as "fancy" but was told by locals it's way better homemade food: "La Pasadita" when we got there it was closed (around 9pm). We also had great seafood at Mariscos "El Tiburon" behind the technical school.

During our visit it was windy everyday so we didn't go out in the bay but as I've learned there's great fishing and sightseeing along the bay and in the mangroves, also the sand dunes on Isla Magdalena are something worthwhile visiting.

I had both motors on my boat checked by a local mechanic, it was a small shop with sand floor but very knowledgeable guys working there.

On your way thru Ciudad Constitucion look for "Antojeria La Esquina" it's on a corner on the east side of the street: it's a must hole in the wall place to have breakfast; we stayed at Hotel "Posada del Ryal" about $650 pesos (?) secured parking, coffee in the office, regular tv, really clean.

Enjoy your visit.




...work to camp and fish.... dream to be there....

DK, please disclose if this info will be published in a book of yours or others. Certain places should be left sacred from the masses. Let most find it on their own especially in out of the way places. I'm just old fashioned that way. Few camp grounds or RV Parks in BCS because of high property values. Appreciate your respect.

As I mentioned, campgrounds and motels Nomads recommend, not secret beaches of yours. I want to see them for inclusion in the Baja Bound guide.

Olas de Cerritos in Cerritos was really nice and I think was about $50 a night last year. Secure parking as well.



In that pre-Google Earth and social media epoch, The Code was adhered to. It was based on a simple verity: if a locale had been transformational for you, and you had put the hard yards in to get there and to learn it, to know it, why in god�s name would you broadcast the news, thus ruining the future experience not only for yourself, but for future adventurers?
