Here is a thread on Puerto Los Gatos and Timbabichi. Gatos is about 3 miles North of Timbabichi.

Catavina is the "heart of Baja" for me
We always camp there at least one night on our annual trek.

Set up camp early and just go out walking through the cirio, cholla, and an infinite variety of other things. Plus birds and signs of critters.

I always take my camera, and take way too many pics!!
It is so gorgeous you just cannot help snapping away.
The hour before sunset and the hour after sunrise are best for color and contrast.

U2U me and I will give you a great campong spot.....

Another great off road outing is from LABay down to San Francisquito, then across to El Arco.
Don't miss Santa Gertrudis not far south from El Arco

In Guerroro Negro ask around and see if someone will take yo toe visit the salt plant.
Couple years ago the owner of the Cowboy Motel took us there for a small extra fee. It was sure worth seeing.

I checked out the link to your canoe. You could get in serious trouble with that thing in Baja. Heed the advice given here by Nomads. I wouldn’t venture out more than a couple of hundred yards into the Cortez with it. I would absolutely not use it on the Pacific side other than in the lagoons. Be careful ... and have a great time.

You could launch it within Puerto Escondido and be safe. The same with San Lucas Cove. Basically, stay within enclosed bodies of water. San Fracisquito has a baylet that’s probably doable as well.

The key is to use it w/o well protected bays. Like Agua Verde.

Or take it out on a panga to some place like Isla Coronado or Isla Danzante. Or the mangroves on Isla San Jose.

Here are the tracks into San Evarsito and Puerto Los Gatos. Once you hit San Evaristo, you can drive down to La Paz in 2-3 hours.

In San Evaristo, you can have a panga take you, your canoe, and the dog out to the islands. There are some very well protected areas to explore, sheltered from the wind.

Wow! I am so appreciative of all of this great information. I appreciate the guidance and warnings regarding the inflatable canoe. I will be VERY thoughtful and cautious where and how I use it. I will also keep my eyes open for any opportunities to rent a hard sided fishing kayak.

SOT kayaks are a dime a dozen on Craigslist. Ditch the blow-up canoe, and take a SOT kayak.
Have you ever been on a kayak or canoe?
Wear a PFD. Dress for immersion.
If windy, use A paddle,leash, and leash your body to boat. Wind can blow a kayak away faster than you can swim.

OP is asking me if you can drive on from San Francisquito to Santa Rosallia.
I told him he would be the first one in history.
Then I got to thinking that maybe someone knows more about that area than I
Last time there the road ended at the fish camps less than ten miles south of SF.
Pretty rugged terrain from there on south

Search "No Wimps" it is a combo road/ off-road (beach) and arroyo trail route from Rancho La Ilusión (near El Barril) to Rancho Trinidad to El Gato to El Rosarito to Santa Marta. You can read about it and see photos and maps (from TMW, 4x4abc, and others).

I don't think you can go that way any longer... gates installed may block the route near the state border. A big power line is crossing the gulf from Sonora to near El Barril then south to Santa Rosalia.

Here is the No Wimps trail that goes from San Francisquito and comes out on MX 1 just North of Santa Rosalia.

Orale! We appreciate fishing reports of any type also.
Hopefully the OP will give us a report on the great time he is certain to have and enjoy after he gets back.

Have a wonderful, exciting, relaxing fishing trip Doug Landolfi!

Wow - thank you so much!! I will be learning a lot on this first driving + camping adventure. My last experiences in Baja were 32 years ago in Cabo San Lucas - obviously, things down there have changed markedly. Won't be visiting Cabo ....

I really appreciate all of the great advice and guidance.

I concurr with all these guyz, they know their chit... Ditch the inflatable canoe, get a hard kayak and by all means carry a small anchor in case you need it safetywise or while diving, DO NOT LOSE YOUR PADDLE! You can get a small boogie board or surfboard leash for it, Take everything you can think of you may need, I take all my drinking water, meds I may need (Ibuprofen mostly but its good to get some general antibiotic in case you get some infection from a cut or something), and everything else you are used to finding easily at home. Markets and American product availability down there have improved immensely in the last 25-30 years but until you are down there you won't know exactly what is available. For instance, I had difficulty finding white gas down there for my stoves so next time I will take two extra gallons, I am a coffee snob so I take my own, altho u can find some fishing gear it is easier to bring everything you may need including spare line, spare reels, spare rods, dive stuff etc. Oh yeah, take all automotive tools you own and have some spare parts for your ri. Be as self sufficient as you can. 😃

Once again, THANK YOU to everyone who has shared information, and has offered advice. I plan to follow all of the guidance within this thread. Regarding the inflatable canoe - I contacted Sea Eagle and shared the points and concerns that have been raised. They are willing to take it back, and return my money. They have been great. I was hoping to take an inflatable to save rack space on top of my Tacoma and on my topper racks. I leave Colorado to head towards Mexicali on November 15th. I will post trip reports. Thank you all!!! I feel like I have made some great new friends. Doug
