Camping in La Ventana ?

Post by j_.. » Fri, 15 Sep 2000 04:00:00


This first rain of the fall season has me thinking about the southeast
cape of Baja. It has been over 10 years since I've been there and have
heard so much about La Ventana. A few questions I have are as follows.
Where to camp? How much does it cost? Water? Flies? Do I need to set up
my van the way I would in San Carlos to avoid being sand blasted etc.?
Any stores and restaurantes? Is it very crowded late December?
Thanks for any reply! Jeff

Hey Jeff,
La Ventana area is waaay fun. Close to world class warm H20 surfing,
fishing, and sailing. I bought some property there because of the unique
geographical logistics. There is a kewl campground there ,easy to find off
the road......center of activities in the region....great bunch of
"windians" gather every year.....$5/day...small tiendas and restaurantes
within walking distance....H20 available....banos....it is sandy, but the
grime factor is  no where near PSC's....can be crowded after New
Year....plenty of room up and down wind....they were building a shrimp
processing plant nearby.

I remember the advice I got the first time I headed down there:  Just do it,
its a no-brainer!  I just hopped on my motorcycle and drove 1000 miles to Los
Barriles, found a room with Mr. Bill for bed, breakfast and equipment for ~$40
night with no reservation right on the beach.  That was good!  La Ventana is
similarly easy--the campsite is right on the beach, real cheap, plenty enough
food options around, decent enough showers.  Do it!
