Los Barriles - 24 Jan
The trip from La Paz to Los Barriles was uneventful. The
distance was approx 110KM. We are staying at Playa Norte RV Campground in Los
Barriles for at least one week if not longer depending how we like the area.
A wonderful church we saw on the way to Los Barriles
Entering the town of Los Barriles
New town mall under construction
The entrance to our campground
A close-up of the cows near the entrance, remember there are
not a lot of fences in the Baja
Looking from the beach towards our campsite. We did not have
power for the first couple of days until the owner finished getting the power
meters installed. Luckily we had our solar panels to charge our batteries and a
great inverter. We did have sewer and water.
A few pictures of the campground
Outside "rustic" bathroom
New shower house and bathrooms under construction
Our friend Joe & Ruth from our "Baja Winters"
tour gave a dinner party with quite a spread, free margaritas, appetizers and
dinner for the group.
Some nice houses around the area high up on the hills. There
are many more on the beach and they are all accessible by dirt roads. The only
paved road is the highway.
Another vendor selling us baked goods, tamales, empanadas and
freshly squeezed juice ( Carrot/Orange). The juice was excellent and only $2.50/
A few vegetables and fruit we purchased from a local vendor who
visits the campground once a week. he had a wonderful selection and what you see
here cost me 30pesos ( $3)
The beach and kite surfing
One of our beautiful sunrises (6:30 am). The water is normally
calm first thing in the morning and you can see the manta rays jumping out the
water and hear them from where we are camped.
