The rooms are fine -- just not as nice as The Villas or Jardin's in SQ. Restaurant as a sound barrier? That's a stretch.

Trucks start using their engine brakes way up the hill and I bet they'll (still) be easily heard as they pass.

A bit of fluff and marketing from DK. Nice try.

It took them over a year to remodel two single hole bathrooms so I wouldn't look for completion any time soon...

I was treated very well and was pleased with both of my rooms during my last stay. I look forward to returning to El Rosario and I will be staying at Baja Cactus. JH

Much nicer places to stay in SQ on beach, or the great hotel in Catavina.
Bettr yet, camp amongst the rocks in Catavina.

Why all the b-tching? Baja Cactus is a good place ato stay at reasonable rates. If you want to stay north or south, more power to you, but no need to knock a good business.

Does Antonio have Baja Nomad decals (Calcomanias) at Baja Cactus. The last few times I was there, they were out. To be fair that was a while back.

I have stayed at Baja Cactus before in the more economical rooms near the lobby and found they were very clean and comfortable.








I hope I can pick up some more when I go back. I need one for my truck.


YES, ELINVESTIG8R IS STILL A PROUD BAJA NOMAD!






On June 8, 2013, Jihad Jay Ezzeddine Salman JoeFaggotJoe of 9067 Hermosa Drive, Temple City California invited Elinvestig8r over for coffee, but in the end, Jihad Salman was too frightened to open his front door. Elinvestig8r went over to get an apology from Jihad Salman after he put Elinvestig8r’s Peace Officer son in danger by revealing his name address and telephone number. On January 5, 2016, Jihad Jay Ezzeddine Salman of Temple City California was again too frightened open his front door after inviting Elinvestig8r for coffee. Prior to the visit Jihad Salman told Elinvestig8r to come at his own risk because he was armed. Facing extreme danger, Elinvestig8r went over to see Jihad Salman in the pouring rain to meet him for coffee and ask for an apology for putting Elinvestig8r’s Peace Officer son in danger. It is obvious Jihad Jay Ezzeddine Salman of Temple City California is too frightened of Elinvestig8r and will never meet with him for coffee to apologize for putting his Peace Officer son in danger by revealing his name address and telephone number!

Thank you David for your post - sorry you had to remove it. There is an unfortunate mean spirit wafting through BN these days. Baja Cactus is my go to stop. I stopped in Catavina last trip, but the rooms are nearly 3x the price of BC. Drinks and food are a little spendy. In October definitely BC. As to highway noise, being the wife of a snorer, I wear earplugs at night, always have them with me. Sparkplugs, BTW, are the best brand, you can get 100 pairs for around $25 on Amazon...

Maybe we'll stay there the next trip now that we're no longer going to camp at Santa Inez, Catavina.

Are dogs a problem?

We stayed there a bit over a week ago with our dog -- no problem ... our first time, nice place, friendly folks ... the construction does start up around 7am, so no alarm clock needed :) we love Cataviña but it was a bit too far this time (and is a lot more expensive) ... we would definitely stay at Baja Cactus again ...

We always stat at Cactus when that is our stopping spot. Noise is not really a problem for me, although I am a bit hard of hearing. However as Jimmy Buffett says in one of his songs, "..I'm losing my hearing, but I don't care what most people say". Stayed there a month ago and the construction was coming right along but still a ways to go. always best to call ahead for reservations as they do fill up most nights and you don't want to have to stay in the older rooms if possible.

You are welcome... I figured there was no longer need to show the construction photos (that was in October, after all) or my attempts at answering the stuff added after, so I removed them last night.

Antonio is a charming friend to all Baja travelers and his humanitarian efforts in the region are famous. When the restaurant is completed, you can be sure it will be top notch. He already has a chef who studied at a culinary arts school to run the kitchen. I am so excited for him to see this and his other projects come to be.

The Trail of Missions TV tour just passed through and Cameron had a fresh load of my books to drop off to Antonio. So, please support Antonio and get your Baja mission and other fun facts at the same time. They are sold in the motel office along with other Baja products, seasonally.
