Sportfishing on the Sea of Cortes

Written by spuguru on 11 Dec, 2000

I'm sorry to start this entry with two facts: 1) I've only sportfished this trip, so I can't compare it with other trips. 2) I have no idea whose boat we went on - we booked through our hotel (La Concha). Many boats are available here, as…Read More

More eats

Written by El Gallo on 11 Aug, 2000

You don't need restaurant guides in Mexico--there's food everywhere and it's all pretty good. If you don't want to grab tacos or roast chicken, try Bachos or LaPazLapa along the waterfront (gringo watering holes--it gets worse: there's a yachtie hangout called El Taste).…Read More
