Bahía de los Ángeles to San Francisquito


Does anyone have semi-current information on the road from Bahía de los Ángeles to San Francisquito (through San Rafael)?

Welcome to the sandbox. I have not been There in about 4 months or so, my info is outdated. I looks like you're planing a great trip.

Rode from BoLA to San Rafael in late December. Camped on the beach and rode back to BoLA the next day. It's a fast, easy ride/drive. We did San Rafael to San Fransciquito the year before. Easy going.

Pro tip: they sell wood and fireworks at the market in BoLA. Loaded half my truck up with wood and made a huge fire on the beach. We got Pancho a little drunk.

Pics from December:

Mavic. Those are screen shots from video.

Since you live in La Paz you might want to check out the La Paz video I just shot.

Fair to fast except for the one grade up, south of San Rafael. Give Pancho at San Rafael some business. He is a very hospitable man who has lived there many years. The one grade is rough, but done slow, you should be fine. It was a year ago, drove it twice.

Pancho is a great host, always walks out with a cold beer in hand! One of these days I will camp there for a few days, the place is like a post card! I will be there in March for a visit on my moto.. Jz, you are getting some awesome pictures and views of the areas I love to ride please post some more!

Roads


On 1/20 the roads were good all the way to Beto's place and to the other beach near the airport. Typical graded road.

Paul W.: I am relatively unfamiliar with the area. Could you explain where "Beto's place" and "the airport" are? I don't see them on the map of David K. Thank you for this comment and other comments of yours to me.

If you don't mind my answering, Beto's is Puerto San Francisquito and the airstrip is next door at Punta San Francisquito.

David,
From the looks of your fourth photo, it might be safe to guess that Caracoles are a staple of Pancho's diet.
