Very Good David...Rancho Grande is first photo. Second shower was camping North of Punta Chivato..The beach around the point..I believe 2009/2010. I have also taken many "Black Solar Bag" showers. They all are good. (photo is beach we camped on.)

Love the photo of the Beer can shower head.

Yes David...it WAS....back up to the left in the photo. Above tide line. At that time..there was also some old outhouses, but again it was a while back.
Not sure if the water came from the houses above the beach or what...One correction...earlier I thought it was 2009/10 it was really 2005.

Any shower at La Chorera in San Quintin is a good shower. Don Alvaro's mother-in-law heats up a big olla of water with firewood and then pour's hot water into a 5-gallon bucket for you. She built a few concrete shower stalls outside her little "store" and you step inside and just pour water on yourself with a small bowl.

the old Chivato shower was under the palms in the photo. That was the best baja shower ever. Meany Shaw has a real good facsimile at his house on shell beach now, only it's inside.

Worst shower: Bunkhouse at Rancho Sta Inez, brown water at a trickle and no shower head and a very peculiar texture to the shower pan.

Butt naked with no one around for miles in the middle of nowhere with my last pot of water heated up on a stove trying to get “clean” enough to reenter society after weeks of camping and no showers.

LukeJobbins....I hear you.
I have taken those showers in Baja and the High Sierras...
Of course I had anti-freeze in my system to help..
Nothing like some Tequila to help...

When all else fails jump into the ocean. For soap to lather use a dish washing soap. Besides the salt water will keep the mosquitoes away.

What ever happened to the Old Pier Hotel? I stayed there many times during the late 80s and early 90s.

The shocking possibilities of a shower at the Villa Vita were well documented in the late 70s by my group who spent several days there.

A hot shower at Coyote bay was an all day ordeal
1. Hook up water tank trailer and disconnect propane tank.
2. Drive to well head in Mulege
3. Wait in line (sometimes)
4. Get lunch and propane
5. Drive back to bay
6. Fill water tank and hook up propane tank
7. Fire up water heater.
8. Wait for hot water, tell baby wipe stories (TMI)
9. Relish the hot water and feel great
10 Have a cup of Earl Gray tea
