Baja, Part 6 – The Trip Back to the USA

This is our final blog about our Baja adventure.  Most RV caravans escort members each and every day.  A unique feature of our caravan was 18 days on our own.  For a group of us the return trip North began by  traveling together from Los Barrilles to Playa Santispac.  By now we are quite Mexicanized.  At this point the roads seemed wider, the towns more attractive.  We even used cruise control for the first ime in Mexico.  The mountains and beaches of Baja are beautiful.  Playa Santispac is a gorgeous beach on the protected waters of Bahia de Concepcion in the Sea of Cortez.  With our friends Grant and Arabelle we hired a boat for a tour of the bay and found beautiful shells, sea lions and pelicans.  Another day we borrowed Mike and Madeliene’s kayak for a paddle around some islands in the bay.  From Santispac near Mulege the entire caravan regrouped for the trip back north to the USA.  The highlight of the return was whale watching at Guerrero Negro (see previous blog https://kingsontheroad.wordpress.com/2016/03/07/whales-of-baja/). We also stopped again at El Pabellon beach where owner Jose prepared a  a delicious clams ranchero over a campfire right on the beach.  The last night the group stayed at Santo Tomas Vineyard, a beautiful facility offering world class wine and olive oil.

The social aspect of the trip exceeded expectations.  Our group was experienced and diverse with no attitudes.  Maybe we’ll  travel together again through Baja.  We would love it!

  1. What a great way to finalize this adventure. Plenty of time to build lasting friendships, share equipment, explore and have fun. Your pictures capture it all. That turquoise water is breathtaking. Am curious as to its temperature. Safe travels. 🌄

    Water was pretty cool by Florida standards but with the warm sun it was possible for some to gwt into the water (not us though).

    It looks wonderful. By the way, it looks as though I’ll get to make the Alaska trip this summer. I’ll be picking our coach up in Florida around April 10th. Then my best friend Tom, (retired United Captain) and I will bring it to Boise. We will spend a little time in Idaho getting the coach ready and then he and I will head for Alaska.
