Mexico: Baja California Sur Road Trip, Part I

After my dad flew home, my mom stayed an extra week (retired person bonus) to explore more of Baja. We rented a car through Fox Rent A Car and hit Mexico 1 heading north. 

Baja California Sur Road Trip Route:
Loreto to Playa Santispac of Bahia Concepcion
Play Santispac to Punto Chivato
Punto Chivato to Santa Rosalia
Santa Rosalia to Laguna San Ignacio
Laguna San Ignacio to San Ignacio 
San Ignacio to La Paz
La Paz to Loreto 

| Playa Santispac |

First stop worth noting was Playa Santispac of Bahia Concepcion where we camped for a night and dined at Anna's Restaurant. Anna's food was top notch. I highly recommend the garlic prawns and their tacos were decked out. 

All the beaches along Bahia Concepcion are full of RV's who stay for months or are just passing through. At first glance we didn't like the idea of camping amongst the RV's but turns out no one ran their generators all night and for the most part once the sun went down everyone went inside their mobile homes. My mom and I quickly felt at home with our tent while we walked the beach and talked with the neighbors. 

Anna's also rents kayaks so before heading north we rented a kayak and went for a morning paddle. The water around the off shore island was so clear we could "snorkel" from the kayak. Win!
