Glad things worked out for you as well as could be expected considering the circumstances. I have been traveling down to Baja for over 40 years and am very very familiar with the area you were in. Back in the day we use to drive from Mex 1 through the Calamajue Wash which usually took about 3-4 hours. Not sure if it can be done now.
Baja is indeed a magical place and the people are truly amazing. They are the primary reason I travel south.
Good luck with your future trips.
