BC is a great stopover, been there many times. Myself and my wife do prefer the newer rooms, as David states, its a perfect spot at around 400 miles south of the border. We have considered " The Tourista " hotel just a mile or two south in El Rosario, but have not just yet, if anyone has stayed there, i would appreciate a report

We have stayed at Turista Motel twice, when Baja Cactus had no vacancy, a few years ago now... it was very nice and very inexpensive, nice mattresses, I recall. Photos from 2009:

BajaCactus Restaurant...


Dear friends,

Thank you so much for your interest, support and friendship you have gifted us with.

Regarding the construction of our Restaurant, please let me first apologize to anyone who has stayed with us and has been bothered
with all the noise being made by the construction workers.

That was one of the first things we requested the Construction Company, but it has been difficult since there are many employees involved. I talked to them again this afternoon about this issue.

This new building of BajaCactus will include a Restaurant, a small inner terrace, a mezzanine with a Coffe Bar and an outer terrace for small parties/events.

Underneath the Restaurant we will have and a small Massage Spa and some service areas in the basement like the laundry room, storage rooms, electrical rooms, etc.

The first stage of the new Restaurant is the Building itself, which is scheduled to be done in 2-3 months.

We have not shared the final Architectural Design yet outside BajaCactus, so, let it be all of you the first ones to see it... here you have it:

BajaCactus Restaurant Perspective_N-S.jpg - 221kB BajaCactus Restaurant Perspective_S-N.jpg - 215kB

This is the current status as of June 29th, 2018:

BajaCactus Restaurant Construction.jpeg - 134kB

The most difficult and time consuming part has been done (foundation, inter connection with existing facilities). Putting up the remaining walls and roof is what the Construction Company estimates will finish within the next 90 days.

After this, second stage will begin, which is the finishes, decor and equipment. We do not have yet an estimated date for opening since we first need to finish the current stage of the construction, and then make some calculations and numbers.

Again, thank you so much for all the support and friendship.

As always... anything I can help with in this part of Baja just let me know.

Antonio Muñoz

It's great that you're adding a restaurant. Hopefully the room prices stay the same.

I have stayed there several times, the rooms are nice with king size bed. Noise has never been an issue and the price is right. Under 400 pesos when I stayed there last fall. We like Baja Cactus and stay there on many trips but when I am traveling alone by motorcycle I like to be able to park it right outside the door. BTW, last year when the town was full of race prerunners I got a room at the Hotel Sinahi. 250 pesos, room was basic and clean with lots of hot water and the people there were very nice. I would stay there again when traveling alone by moto.

I love the new design and look forward to staying there again! The spa idea is fantastic and I will get a massage when I'm there after a nice meal. I know everything Antonio does is a class act so this will be a real asset to the town.

Not sure when you were there Marc, but Antonio has nicely remodeled all the older rooms a while ago and I stayed in one last year, as the newer rooms were full. His front desk staff has always been nice, so if you get someone who is not professional, including at the gas station, please let Antonio know. The labor pool is very limited in El Rosario so he does his best with training, or tries to! Antonio's email is info (at) bajacactus.com.

I very much disagree...and I have stayed in lots of dumps!
I only stay in the old rooms which are perfectly fine, clean with a good bed, wifi and good shower...I dont need the gorgeous fancy rooms with king beds.

The office staff are always cordial and professional to me.

I don't think I've ever stayed in an older room but I really like the newer rooms. I've never had any problems with the staff.

I've also stayed at Mama Espinoza's motel and at the Tourista motel and both were good.

I love the sound of Jake brakes in the morning. It sounds like Baja.

I stayed at a recommemded place in Loreto, off the main road... Rooster began crowing at midnight and didn't stop except when the dogs were barking! The most jake brake action I counted at Cactus was two, and none woke me. For real peace, go camping far from everything is how.

old baja is alive and well, nobody wants it.....:no:




funny how drinking 8 glasses of water a day seems impossible but 8 beers and 7 shots in 2 hours go down like a fat kid on a seesaw

Antonio is a great guy and one of the classiest acts I have ever met in Baja...and I have never stayed there but have helped with donations to Desert Hawks. And seeing some of the negative responses here makes me want to redouble my efforts for the next time.
