Newest 2018 Map: San Quintín Area


Please have a look and tell me if it flies for you.

I included the Sierra San Miguel mountain road, San Isidoro, etc. as TW and Squarecircle and other have been on it, and I would like to one day. I limited some of the data, like gas stations (there are plenty in this section). I almost left out the Km markers as I thought it may get too busy.

It is in the guide! ;)

Km. 16 El Pabellon (1.2 miles) Campground/RV Park (150 pesos). A popular restaurant, Parcela 12, is just ahead on the east side of the highway.

Not to worry, plenty in the area and putting them in would only confuse the issue. I prefer the clean look. Personal favorites can be noted on your own copy.

Harald, look at what I wrote when I posted the map: " I limited some of the data, like gas stations (there are plenty in this section)."

There are so many points of interest around San Quintín, it would just get too crowded to add the gas pump icons.

How about adding an 'inset' map of the greater San Quintin area only and have gas, hotels, etc. marked w/ turn-off km's? Kinda like City inset maps in road atlases? Por que no?

That would be great for a stand-alone map, yes.

These maps are mated to the Guide so that readers of the Guide can have a quick and easy visual depiction of where they are compared to other places noted in the Guide. I am showing these maps to all of you not for your enjoyment only, as they do go with the road logs I have made. But, to help me make sure they are easy to see/understand, don't have incorrect data, and to make them the best possible. I already have a few things I see since posting I will change.

There is/ will be, a Baja Bound on-line map in addition to these maps for the Guide. I have waypointed hotels and gas stations, campgrounds, points of interest to be added to that map. I personally did not spend a lot of time looking for all motels, just ones that I spotted that I thought may be useful to know about. I had a lot of ground to cover every day!

David you should add the road from K25 east to the road going down to K103.

Hi Tom,
I did that road in 2005, found Petroglyph Park up there too. It was pretty bad then!

I saw no signs directing to Pedregal. Unless it is a camping area or has a motel or some other attraction to vacation travelers it is not shown. Similar to why I don't include the dozens of 'campos' north and south of San Felipe that are private homes and not campgrounds.
Thank you for asking. If I did miss a place that should be included, do let me know so it could be added in a future update.

Version #2 San Quintín Map


OK, so I have moved a couple of the text lines, changed a size on some, added Sierra San Miguel to the map, and think it is easier to read now:

What say you?



The next map I have started today is the Puertecitos area (Arroyo Matomi to Punta Bufeo).

Goes to show you that you can't have too many eyes looking at your work if you value accuracy!

In a final edit (well maybe final) edit of my manuscript, it was discovered I spelled a place with "las" when it should be a "los" (with Gigantes). When I checked my notes, sure enough, I had it correct as los, but when typing, I used "las". That typo error transferred onto my San Felipe map (one of the first I made)... So here is version 5 of the San Felipe Area map with Valle de los Gigantes!
