Guerrero Negro, Baja


You can’t skip Guerrero Negro if you’re making your way down the Baja Peninsula. Probably stop for gas and a somewhere to sleep. Although there isn’t much to do in town, there are opportunities to go whale-watching. The lagoon is a breeding ground for grey whales. 



Guerrero Negro is the largest town in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. It is in the municipality of Mulegé (BCS). The typical van dweller will sleep at a different location every night.

Whale Watching

When the gray whales return to the lagoons of Baja California Sur to give birth, the locals throw a big party to celebrate (BCS). The first half of February is when this celebration takes place. Additionally, on February 24 and 25, the port of San Blas, also in BCS, hosts a festival with similar themes.


There seems to be two main RV campgrounds in the city. The two that I am aware of are:


There are a few opportunities for boondocking around the town. It seems most people boondock outside of town by the sand dunes. For more information visit

It’s a privilege to have Guerrero Negro for our enjoyment, so please practice Leave No Trace principles.
