If you’re traveling the Baja Peninsula, don’t miss the town of Guerrero Negro. You should probably take a break to get some sleep and gas. Even though there isn’t much to do in town, you can go whale-watching. In this lagoon, grey whales are able to have their calves.
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.
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 seem to be two main RV campgrounds in the city. I have stayed in Malarrimp RV PArk and it was decent. The two 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 iOverlander.com
It’s a privilege to have Guerrero Negro for our enjoyment, so please practice Leave No Trace principles.
- Guerrero Negro is located halfway down the Baja peninsula along Baja Route 1.
