Who knows if it is the flies or just a bug going around

I was on the Central Pacific side of Baja for the entire month of November. Tons of flies at each place I stayed. I've never experienced that amount of flies before. At the Wall, several people got sick. Gringo George from Alejandros speculated that it was due to the flies (rolling in human poo then coming to your campsite and walking on your cooking utensils, pots, pans, food). People theorized that the unusual amount of flies was due to all the rain from two major hurricanes just months prior.

Sanitation is becoming a problem with the hordes of people that now visit those surf areas. Most know the drill, but I witnessed some people pooping less than 25 yards from their campsites. And many people walking inland to take care of their business without a shovel. Even if you bury it and burn your paper, the coyotes come at night and dig it up. But they don't eat the entire pile, so there's remnants of human waste exposed for the flies to find on.

The Wall has become so popular that eventually it could become a toxic ghetto. I know many who stopped going there 20 years ago because it was too crowded then. Good times!
