and the nightly/weekly prices would be???

capt. mike - 4-8-2006 at 07:20 AM

yeah, need specifics here pls. and, how far from the air strip?

what's available to purchase in the area too?

Bajame - 5-14-2006 at 10:32 PM

Can you get there with a 2 wheel drive? Tried this winter and got stuck.

shari - 5-15-2006 at 07:17 PM


It's usually no problem getting here in a normal car but there is a sandy spot that you just need to keep your speed up and don't stop. People here regularly travel in little cars and even motor homes come here. I suggest they call us when they are leaving Vizcaino and if they don't get here in a reasonable time we come out and see what happened. the sandy part is close to town. There are sometimes some rocks on the road but it's a pretty good road...definately better than alot of them. I always suggest carrying a hand held VHF radio in Baja for emergencies and it's great as you can call us from the road. So quit dreaming of baja and COME ON DOWN! We'd love to meet you and share our paradise!

Thanks for the response! I will try again!

Shari sent me a few photos for the Bed & Breakfast... Stand by for a new web page to show them...

capt. mike - 5-17-2006 at 04:44 PM

SiReNiTa - 5-17-2006 at 06:41 PM

David K - 5-17-2006 at 10:33 PM

'The Blowhole' Bed & Breakfast web page finished! (unless more photos will be added)

Looks great and the food sounds fantastic!

The Blowhole Bed & Breakfast

capt. mike - 5-18-2006 at 05:45 AM

well that is an OK start DK, more promoting the general area than the b and b....but what i was looking for (If maybe Shari can add the photos/send you more) are specific shots depicting the accomodations like you get on any online resort review or canned brochure - i.e.

1. bedrooms layout and amenities.
2. living lounge areas and amenities.
3. kitchen or "ette"
4. bath facilities
5. elevational views, up close of the digs
6. garden areas, patios with more detail

hope you get the idea, Shari.


David K - 5-18-2006 at 07:09 AM

That's is good with me Mike, and I agree... Shari, send me photos of inside the house (to my email). How many rooms are available for guests?


shari - 5-18-2006 at 11:23 AM

Gracias for the input...does this mean I have to now clean up our house. HEE HEE! Our place is very homey and humble, as in not fancy with only 1 spare room which has a queen size bed and a top bunk...most only sleep in their room as all the action is outside on our patio. Also, the living room has a hide-a bed that gets alot of use too. We have lots of friends who come and visit and decided to offer the room to Nomads as well...we don't advertise as we really dont want hoards of tourists here but I thought Nomad may be a neat place to attract "our type" of visitors...baja lovers who are used to an outhouse...which we have but it has a toilet seatand spectacular view!(I'll send a photo, ha ha) We live on a rock and can't have a septic field here. We do have an indoor shower though although not gringo style pressure. This is why we charge so little, it's not super fancy but what we lack in elegance we more than make up for in fun and enthusiasm! We are always looking for a place to stay in our baja travels away from home and find most places very lovely but also way beyond our means so our place is kinda different. It's more the spanish immersion type experience...this is our home and it's definately lived in. We are always making improvements and plan an addition and a 2nd floor view room for next year. We are also renovating another beach house which should be ready next year which will be up to gringo standards with all the amenities and fancy dancy rooms..(my brother is funding this and will use it as his vacation home for our it's gonna be real nice!) So I will sweep and pick up all my boxes of books and send some pics of the living room and bedroom ASAP. Get the picture now Nomads???? Looking forward to meeting some of you...there is also a little hotel which you can stay in in view but indoor bathroom! Hast pronto espero!

capt. mike - 5-18-2006 at 01:20 PM

Mike, note her last line in the post above yours:

"...there is also a little hotel which you can stay in in view but indoor bathroom! Hast pronto espero!"

shari - 5-19-2006 at 10:32 AM

We do have our 2 bedroom beach house in San Roque that is an entire house and about 15 minutes from town. It is fully furnished but rustic with no running water and 12 volt lights and sleeps 7. My daughter and I lived there for years and we loved it as the beach is incredible and the abandoned village is charming and very quiet....good fishing off the rocks too. The motel in town is where the flying doctors stay and they have a restaurant there too, it's clean and right in the middle of town. Our new beachhouse should be ready to go in November. We're adding a new living room and kitchen to it. It's going to be so nice I'm gonna want to move in! Let me know if you want me to make reservations sometime at the's called Hotel Verduzco. We can come and get you at the airstrip too. Cheers...shari

capt. mike - 5-19-2006 at 03:15 PM

thx Shari, appreciate all. is the beach area within reasonable walking distance from town and the hotel?

we'll come check it out regardless.

you beach house will be a winner and will look forward to when its available.
for us, some remoteness and privacy is key.

shari - 5-19-2006 at 05:49 PM

If remoteness and privacy is key then San roque is the place for you captain. this is what I value as well and why I bought the beach's 14 steps from the high tide mark and is a 5 mile deserted beach...reminds me of home on islands in clayoquot sound off of Vancouver Island. We can drop you off and pick you up a couple days later and make sure you have all the ice you need! The motel is in the middle of town, NOT private but yes close to the beach. Let me know when you want to check it out...PS: I included some more pics of our places.

David K - 5-19-2006 at 06:57 PM

Hi Shari, on the second link for the B&B, you need to add a 2 after 'boojum' so the full URL is

Bob H - 5-19-2006 at 07:35 PM

If you want to stay in the hotel, no problem. If you like I can cook for you sometimes instead of the dreary restaurant, and you can hang out here on our palapa patio and eat well for cheap, also we can pick you up at the strip. We don't leave till around June 26th....hey it would be great to have a gathering here for sure!

capt. mike - 5-22-2006 at 06:18 AM

sounds good Sheri, sure - a room at the hotel and meals out would be nice.

and i'd enjoy checking out other restaurants too.

David K - 3-14-2023 at 05:49 AM

Remembering when Shari got her first accomodations going!

The first Blowhole/ Bufadora web page is no longer viewable, but I enjoyed making it to help her get the word out, May 17, 2006.

A year later, the Rock Room, next to her home, was being built for guests. We stayed in the home near the beach, in town (her brother's place), in 2007.

About six years later, Shari had a regular motel building nearing completion. We were there in 2012, had fun looking for fossil shark's teeth. Stayed in the Rock Room.

I came back in 2016 with my Baja Extreme tour and my guests liked the new motel and Shari's hospitality so much, they asked to stay two nights there! In 2017, I returned during my Baja Bound research trips and stayed in the new building. I wrote this article after I got home:

Keep on keeping on, Shari!
