Sun/Mon Map Work: Santa Rosalía Area


Here is my first draft of the next map on my list... Did I get the names right? ;)

Edit... second draft with thanks to Bob & Susan for the correction of Los to Dos!

Good question Bob.
I checked my notes, and I did write Los Amigos... I think I took a photo of the sign... I will check. The Almanac does show it as Dos.

Edit: Sign was in sad shape, but I do think it is Dos. So, I will fix, thank you!

While I have read about the prison gifts for sale here on Nomad, I slowly passed the entrance road and saw nothing inviting tourists to drive in. It could be added in the future, no problem.

Driving South out of Santa Rosalia for about 2 miles there is a large modern complex on top of a hill on the left. It shows up on Google. What is it?

It's a University I believe.

As I said, I did not see anything that looked inviting from the highway. Can you post a photo of it?

While it is very unique, I am trying to imagine what tourists on their first visit will actually want to go to a prison in Mexico with their families? Maybe after a few trips when they are ready for a new thrill? Again, if I saw that sign, I would have driven in. My thinking was maybe the gift shop was no longer open.

Hi David,

I am sorry I have not let you know how much I like the maps and I like the K markers listed. I am heading up to Sta. Rosalia tomorrow to print off the information for our fishing tournament and can check out anything you need re-verified.

For BajaBill74 I think he is talking about the newer neighborhood being built on the road out to Santa Aqueda. They advertise in town and state they have three different styles of homes available, but I have not stopped in only driven by. One thing most of them do have is a very nice view.

And also it is still Playa Dos Amigos RV park.

You take care and keep up the great work, let me know if you need anything.

KC in Mulege

PS - The College is closer to town right on the coast. The road to it cuts by the old family park/alberca (abd.) north of the "old" Federales station house (abd.) through the arroyo and up the hill.

Hope that helps.

Back in The Day you'd enter the prison courtyard with guards and haggle price with the inmates through a very high chain link fence... and I'll tell you, it makes you behave better in Baja seeing what the inside looks like. One does NOT wanna be a guest in that hotel. The gift shop makes it much more amenable to tourists, less confrontational. Great art too; I have a houseful of it, good stuff and good prices. Prolly bought 30-40 pieces over the years. Highly recommended if you like that kind of thing.

Great replies Kevin (Okie) and Buddha.

I would like a photo of that sign for the prison gift shop (if it is there) and the kilometer marker nearest it (I know I posted it on Nomad once, but double check please).

BajaOkie, from the road I couldn't see the houses, but here they are. Driving South they are on the left of Hwy 1 and Santa Agueda is on the right. (Not in the picture.) Hwy 1 is on the left of the image.
