We're interested in exploring the many pristine beaches along the Sea of Cortez, from San Felipe to Loreto in Baja de California, Mexico. We would be posting this as a ORP Club trip limited to 5 or 7 vehicles including leaders. We expect to be gone a week to 10 days, depending on what the group decides. This will be posted as easy 4x4, but will be required to have recovery points and some lift. EDIT: Looking at this more closely together, @Number7 and I think we would prefer to only go as far down the coast to about El Colorado, if that far, going from San Felipe to 2 or 3 other beach 'campos', and mostly hanging out, before heading back the same way. If we altered the trip to less distance, and 4 - 5 nights of beach camping (gone 7 days max) would you still be into going @alexshel44 & @shellback91 We are researching all the beach camps and hotels along the way for prices and amenities. Crossing the US Border We plan to cross the US Border into Mexico in Mexicali. We will stay together as a group until everyone is through the border and visa office. You will need a US Passport or a US Passport Card We will check in at the border to buy the required visas (depends on number of days we decide to stay) San Felipe - what Rocky Point used to be From there we'll go down to San Felipe for the night, either camp or get rooms at one of the many places to choose from. https://en.sandollarresort.com/ The next day we'll embark upon our journey to discover lazy days and fish tacos at pristine deserted beaches. We will explore along the coast each day until we decide where to stop for the night. There are camp sites and little hotels all along the way. If we decide just to stay a whole day and swim, we will. We'd like the trip to be fluid, and take shape along the way rather than have a set agenda. Some of the campos and points of interest: Leave San Felipe and drive MX Hwy 5 south along the sea of Cortez, stopping along the way at cool places. We will at times take dirt roads to beach coves. Several we've noted in google maps: Bahia Santa Maria Jenny's Beach Resort https://chenowthlegacylodge.com.mx/ After more consideration of this trip, the points of interest below are further than we intend to travel this time: San Francisquito Bahia de los Angeles Daggets Camp ground has palapas with fire pits, and there's running water and hot showers (I have found that there are many campos with showers and toilets in various states of repair) Bahia de los Angeles Museum Puerto San Francisquito Playa del Barril Bahia Concepcion Homeward Bound On the way home we can either go back the way we came, or we can take MX Hwy 1, which goes along the Pacific coast to Ensenada and Tijuana. We can talk about this before going and come up with a plan. There is not a lot that I want to see on the pacific side per se, but I'm not completely adverse to returning that way. The area around Ensenada is noted to be very beautiful. If someone wants to go on this trip but they can't be gone that long, they could go back early with another member. So if you want to go home early, pair up with someone who also wants to leave early. We'd prefer if everyone stays in pairs at least! Considerations: ~You will need Mexican pesos to buy things and tip people. There are several easy ways to obtain them: Purchase pesos at the border - usually fees and higher than going exchange rate I opened a WISE account, moved some US Dollars into it, and converted them into MX Pesos at the going rate for a very low conversion fee. When I get to the MX border, I'll go to a regular ATM to pull out pesos, and I'll use my WISE debit card wherever I can for food, gas, etc. You can buy pesos from your bank if you have a debit account at one of the big national banks such as Chase, Wells Fargo, BofA, etc. ~We will be monitoring US Travel advisories and news from Baja prior to the trip, and will cancel/postpone in the event it's not safe to go. Post in this thread if you'd be interested in going Interested: @Number7 & @dzJeepChic @alexshel44 @shellback91 @ob1jeeper @Ken Ford @Goose
