if I would want to find it while in Vizcaino - I would easily find it with all the information provided

however, if I wanted to put a location and a name on a map (like David's stuff), then I would need a pinpoint location and an accurate name.

Harald, zoom in on Hotel del Sol, the two appear, then just the Hotel Martitha shows. See the red dart on my Google Map image?

you have personal directions from several folks....and DK's post w/ sat pic.

That's all you need.....Blanca's post is the most recent "been there" info....

The town ain’t that big. It takes 2 minutes to drive the length of the main street. If you miss the hotel first time driving thru town on 1, it only takes 2 minutes to drive the street again :light:

You don’t need gps to navigate this small town :!:

Ya gotta love this forum. The only one around that can take a simple restaurant review and turn it into a major discussion on directions. MORE MAPS!

I have to agree with this assessment, and I've eaten there recently, and stayed at their motel. It certainly doesn't rank with the better restaurants in Guerrero Negro to the north nor with San Ignacio to the south.

The best 'bakery' bread I've found in Vizcaino is just a clay oven by the side of the highway where bread is sold as it's made. They called it Sinaloa bread and it was delicious. On the right side of the highway entering town from the south.

Harald, I was there last week. Both hotel names are in front as if one hotel has two names. Another possibility is that the Del Sol is behind the Martitha? There are two buildings with the same front entrance. I was at the auto shop on the south side and took a photo...


Notice the name over the arched entrance: Hotel Martitha along with the Hotel del Sol sign. There is also a restaurant here called Martitha.
