Todos Santos: Iguana de los Mangos

A beautiful house just north of town, the owners have added a separate 2nd floor unit with exterior stairs that is a great place if you want to get away from Todos Santos and stay somewhere quiet and peaceful.



It is a Bed & Breakfast, but much more than just a "Bed"--the entire upper floor is yours, with deck, outdoor kitchen, bbq, seating area, 360° views and a luxurious bathroom and bedroom.

You can learn more about the place and the welcoming owners of Iguana de los Mangos here: http://bajasurtodossantos.com/

After reading HWD's complete ride report I decided this thread needed a list of sweet Baja RRs as well, so I have begun a list in the first post.

Thanks Muddy!

I like that you added a post to notify us of an edit—realized I wasn't able to keep track of additions to
earlier posts otherwise. If you wouldn't mind doing this in the future also so we can keep up with your edits.

Border Crossing

General Question for you guys that have been to Baja. Can you cross the border at Sonoyta (HWY 85 south from Ajo, AZ) and hit Baja through Puerto Penasco without all the MX mainland paperwork?

Thanks,

cb

Yes you can cross at Lukeville/Sonoyta and take MEX8 directly south to Penasco. The Mex immigration office (for your visa) is on your right, immediately after you cross the border. There is no bank there so you'll either have to have your pesos or pay in US dollars at a poor exchange rate. There is no parking in front of the office so you have to leave your bike parked in the middle of the street (designated area) and walk to the office. There is a relatively new highway connecting Puerto Penasco with Baja via Golfo de Santa Clara.

You pay when the old guy comes around.

We met a great guy Mark from north west Colorado who camps there every year in an old Toyota camper. Tell him we said hi! Why does mark return every year? This place is like the ultimate unplugged beach getaway, but with amenities. First, how about room service in your palm palapa? Every morning a couple of ladies from town come by in a pick up truck selling fresh empenadas, tamales, and other yummy goodness. Shortly after comes the guy selling fresh fruit. Then comes blanket and necklace guy. Within waling distance there is a little tienda with soda, water, beer, etc. Next to the tienda is a shack with a wonderful older lady making grilled chicken, next to that is a cool bar, Estella's (owned by a British expat lady),

Just north of Coyote (walking distance, there is a trail through the cactus) is another beach. There is a little restaurant on the west side of the road owned by a family with a fishing boat. They cook what they catch, so yes it's fresh and awesome! There is also another more "touristy" restaurant at that beach, but we never went in.

Street view looking north from the south end of Coyote:

That day they caught these:


*EDIT*
I didn't have good pics of the actual beach because we lost our camera, but thanks to ADV Inmate Hardworkingdog who just stayed here as well I am able to add a couple of pics. HWD also contributed another entry for Todos Santos, and I am hoping he does more.




Find bliss here:
