Gonzaga Bay was the first destination my family and I had when we began four-wheeling down Baja in 1965.

It was also on my Spring Break Trip of 1974 when I first traveled without my parents at age 16.

It continues to be a beautiful and special place, but the added highway and additional building does take some getting used to if you knew it as long as I have!

The unpaved roadbeds, including that one, are sort of closed..people drive them, and we did on Jan 1. There are typically a few cones that cars drive around at or near both ends of the roadbeds...
That may have changed, but others we talked to have subsequently enjoyed the smoother graded sections...

Alfonsina’s has a new staff, and the service was very efficient yesterday. They never let me run out of beer..

Good news Wayno! It was getting some bad PR once Antonio was gone.

That is too bad people disregard the cones (and barrels) blocking the road. The roads are blocked for a reason. They were ready for paving. When people drive on them it ruins the final grade and prolongs what it will take to finish the road.

We had shrimp tacos at Alfonsina’s. Pretty good. $10 might seem expensive for Baja but the portions were big. They did let me run out of beer though.

The detours aren't very obvious at some points but it is an active construction zone so you risk getting turned around if you drive too far into the work. There's still a big chunk in the mountains they are digging away and filling in so that section is not a final grade.
