Scorpion Bay is a primitive recreation destination 650 to 890 road miles south of Tijuana depending on the route you take. Look on the West Coast of Baja California Sur, north of Magdalena Bay, south of San Ignacio Lagoon. San Juanico can be found near Punta Pequeña, a south facing point with a lighthouse. La Purísima, to the east, is the closest pueblo inland.


Both the two bedroom Suite with private bath and the Front House with the loft, kitchen and private bath are available on a nightly basis along with the two sleeping rooms with full beds. Click the button to view availability of the Palapas. 


The Federal Maritime Zone is available for camping. Set-up your camp on the cliff edge with an unobstructed view of the surf - reservations not taken for camping.


Water is still trucked in and water conservation is still a high priority.

Wastewater Treatment

The secondary wastewater treatment system is performing without a hitch.

Travel Safety

For the past three years there have been no serious incidents involving tourists south of Ensenada. Even so, it’s advised to travel in the daytime. There are several good reasons for not driving at night. Drive slowly and carefully. Every year there is at least one rollover on the dirt roads. If you’re short on time or extremely cautious, consider flying LA to Loreto and driving the three and a half hours to San Juanico. More travel information here.
