Last time I stopped in Puerto Nuevo the lobsters were so small I felt guilty ordering them. They were more like eating large crawfish. Locals are totally willing to over fish their waters.

It's a blowhole. Surf shoots through it, pretty cool to check out.

Head further south. Mulege is awesome. The beach in Todos Santos is incredible.

I thought Todos Santos was an island?

Both of those destinations are way beyond a 3 day trip, I reckon.

You're probably thinking of Espiritu Santo - near La Paz.

Also a must-see, but via boat.

Just got back yesterday. If you have the time and don't mind the miles, anything and everthing from Mulege south. Hauled back 11 motorcycles and gear from Cabo Pulmo. Stayed over night in La Paz, Loreto, Guerrero Negro, had Breakfeat in Catavina, stayed San Quintin an Ensenada, then drove home to the bay area. The Baja 1000 started today and will end on the 17th. Lot's of cars/people down there for that. Love that place. Good people and great food. Can wait for the next trip!

I agree, I think of San Quintin as being the border town - too bad it takes over half a day to get there. The high desert plateau about an hour past there is some of the most beautiful desert you'll find anywhere. Somehow, TJ and Ensenada seem about as Mexican as Taco Bell...

I know the San Felipe shrimp festival is this time of year, too.

Pretty hard to beat a bacon wrapped shrimp hot off the grill.

How far down are you going EP? Head down at least as far as Bahia De Los Angeles and come back up through Bahia Gonzaga to San Filipe. (Stop by and see Coco, if he is still around, let the wife staple a pair of panties to the ceiling )

I know of some really fantastic places to eat in TJ ( I know that sounds like an oxymoran, but it's true) PM me if you want that info.

we might try to make it all the way down to Cabo - depending how things go and how much time we want to spend.

The bike is all packed up! We are staying in San Climente for a few days then heading into the Ja of the Ba..... cant wait!
