Though The Palapa is gone, The Cantina behind the house is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Campground facilities are repaired and working. All three sleeping palapas have new roofs and are available for guests. The bedrooms in the house are available also. (See the reservation calendar on the Accommodations page for availability.) The bathhouse and campgrounds are open and the private bathroom with the hot shower is available for campers and is included for those staying in the Palapas. The wireless satellite internet is working. We ask it be used for email only (no videos, Youtube, Skype, Netflix, etc.) as downloads are limited and the service is seriously retarded for 24 hours when the limit is exceeded.
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 and the three palapas. Click the button to view availability of the accommodations.
Set-up your camp in view of the surf. There is plenty of camping space. Reservations are not taken for camping.
Water is still trucked in and water conservation is still a high priority.
The secondary wastewater treatment system is performing without a hitch.
For the past several 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.
