Gonzaga bay camping under the palapas is cool. some cool stops along the way down would be San Ignacio camp by the lagoon or stay in one of the yurts. bay of conception, camp on the beach. Loreto is a great stop, we hoteled it at the loreto plaza for $350 peso's a night for a room with 2 beds. nice clean hotel! A nice route down towards the bottom of baja is from La paz take hwy 286 back over to the coast, side trip to La Ventana to watch the kite surfers then continue over the mountain to the coast south to Los Barriles. check out our ride report (riding big pigs in baja) I broke the trip down day by day. Cheers!!
I would like to do some gentle and even not so gentle dirt but my riding compadre is pretty leery of it. Hopefully I can get him out some dirt roads before we go to relax him. He's a good rider, just lacks confidence in the dirt. I'll check out your RR. Thanks!
