Estero Coyote, Campo Rene...anyone been recently?


Last time Hubs and I were there was in early 2014. They had just finished one brand new palapa and were working on the second. Word was that they were moving in a more eco-tourism direction, which is awesome. We could already see the fish stocks coming back up.

We'll be heading down this January and I see the website for Campo Rene hasn't been updated since 2014. Just wondering if anyone has visited lately and how things are going there?

Cheers!
Kristene

Hi Kristene! Been a long time since the Posada Concepcion days! Glad you are not in the Bahamas any more, either!

I took some photos not long ago (June) at Campo Rene on my TRIP #5 of 2017, researching for a new road guide to some of Baja's great locations... here is the thread: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=86781

Thanks, David!

I'll check that out. Yes, I'm also very glad I'm no longer in the Bahamas. Man, what a rough year. Our province has been in a state of emergency, because of our wildfires, since July! Crazy.

The road from highway 1 into Punta Abreojos has been fixed - very few potholes now.

Who knows how long that will last.

Campo Rene is pretty much the same as it has been for a while. No more new cabanas, great food at the restaurant with slow service but this is Baja - no hurries and no worries!

As Blanca said. All fixed. When I advised David it was being repaired (when he was puttiing his report together) he got mad. Don't know why he insists the road is bad.

Other errors in his report but he takes it as criticism so I will leave it to others to figure out.

Most of us don't need up to the minute pothole reports. I can't wait for his "guide." *sigh!*

I didn't get mad... good grief, I only stated the obvious which was that road has had potholes for quite awhile (years) and there were no crews at work or materials staged when I was on the road three months ago. Half the distance was great and half was full of holes. That they really repaved all those miles finally is great news... Photos or a post in the Nomad Road Conditions forum of the new highway work would have been nice to see.


#1 at the time I pointed out there was a sign outlining repairs..which you had a copy of. Then you had all comments removed from the post and I gave up.

#2 Once you were notified of the road being repaired by myself and others, why did you not correct your road guide? You saw how your misleading guide affected the last reader.

Are your ever wrong?

His names for geographic landmarks and ranches are wrong at frequency of about 1 out of 10, and he misses a lot. i think he just speeds by every sign and writes down what's on signs,... signs don't always inform you what's on the road... (unless it's one of the common tour stops that have hung signage).

LOL. Clubfred the road is just fine. The parking lot to Rene is not roped off..and as confimed by Blanca, the food is good, service is slow. Can get very busy on Sundays.

Come on down if you so desire.

Glad to know the highway is fixed. When the Squarecircle and I drove it last December it was pothole city.

I just hope they used more than 1/4 inch of asphalt in he repairs or it'll be the same next year.

So DK if you are open, why do you take down your post when they put you in a bad light. Have a nice day!!!

I have seen your reports disappear for years. What I do in Baja isn't important, I help where I can. Self glorification by what I do isn't my thing.

Explain what was put in a bad light, as I only report what is there that I saw? What was taken down? My trip reports are all here on Nomad and other forums... nothing from my trip report was taken down by me, no reason to.

How about some useful reporting of your own. If things have changed in the three months since my report and photos were taken, where are your reports and photos to show it is no longer that way?

Thank you.


Oh pleaseeeeee. David, I went line by line giving you corrections..I am sure some remember. I was able to do so because I live there and am close to La Bocana. I did so without criticism nor did I comment about any other area. You got very upset and defensive. Ultimately all my comments disappeared. Since you care nothing about accuracy, I will refrain from commenting except when someone else reacts, such as in this thread.

Even in this case you could not say "oh good, I will make the corrections". Just another Brew ha ha.
