Does anyone still go to Bahia de Los Angeles or Punta Santa Maria for Christmas? Are both still safe and good sailing that time of year? Is there still a lot of soft sand at Punta Santa Maria that you get stuck in the sand?

We have been going to Bahia de Los Angeles since '87, and it is still about the same, little change.
The wind is great when El Norte blows, or even a westerly. Great windsurfing, and kiteable when the wind is light.
Camping at La Gringa is still an option.
Hope to see you there.

Eddy,

A couple of years ago before you took off for your yearly trip to Bahia de Los Angeles, I remember you saying that the dirt road to La Gringa might have been closed off to access. Appears like that might have been an unfounded rumor after all.

Is there still access driving through the dump area to the area beyond where you have a direct launch to the channel? The immediate scenery in back of that area there isn't quite as interesting, but the sailing conditions are often much better.

Been down the 'Baja' since the sixties. Ahhh...for the 'good old days', when the roads were rough and the people few. Spent a month in Bahia in 1988...pulled the trailer and boat a quarter mile north of the old govt. icehouse and the Mexicans living in it the only neighbors for a mile or more. No Baja 500, 1000...no motocross ninja dweebs...no kayak clubs, etc., etc., etc. Stopped by in 2003...where I holed up in '88 was a compound of extranjero developement with lots of propiedad privada signs...

Change sucks... Adios Bahia Viejo...tan triste!

And double curses on the authors of the numerous Baja Travel Books that let most of USA know that Baja was a fun destination and how to get there.

And triple curses on the dweebs now publishing gps coords and routes for those once unfindable places and roads to those secret surfing spots we used to have to ourselves.

Know all about I Ching'ala but couldn't resist a good bitch...

Steve, the asphalt now goes almost all the way to La Gringa.
Pemex is sold in town.
Yeah, some progress, but it is still the same.
There are still secret spots, no one around...shhhh!
