cabo san lucas

Lands end of the baja california and Cabo San Lucas is like a small, american tourist city. All along the beaches are building shells of new hotels, in a few years everything will have changed.

Is this a post worth? Yes, because we have visited christina and patrick corr, quasi friends of friends. The two have introduced us to their friends, just great. Among them markis saffert, a german baker (do not miss: “The Cabo Bakery”) and a canadian ex-wrestler.

Thanks christina and patrick for this great time.

puerto aqua verde

we had several recommendations for this beach, it should be a pearl on the baja california. to get there, we had to drive a narrow, stony and bumpy dirt road for about 20 miles . actually the track is not designed for our car size, partly we had to cut away the thorny bushes and the occasional oncoming traffic was always a challenge. But the hassle is worth it and we met the two nice american couples again who had also recommended this pearl.

playa escondida / molegé

plays escondida in the moonlight

“Playa escondida” translates hidden beach. A bumpy road leads to this bay, and we were delighted to find it empty. no one but us was here. Some palmleaves covered “palapas” dispenses shadow, clamshells edges the beach and then alone under the starry sky. Great.

coco´s corner

The route from puertositos to the highway no 1 still passes Coco’s corner. The dusty, bumpy and narrow dirt-road- will be replaced (and they are working since years on it) by a new paved road which no longer tangents Coco’s corner.

Coco lives since 26 years in the center of no-where. Even two dusty roads are crossing here but that doensn´t mean there is much traffic. He is now 79 years old and he had driven motorcycle races, he has lost a leg by an accident at work and by an infection he lsot his second one. He asked the docter to amputate it in the same length, this would make it easier he exclaimed. Coco sells refreshments and maintains for many, many years aguestbooks. Meanwhile, there were nine notebooks, unfortunately one had been stolen, he regretted. Among all the entries there was also one from “horst and rita”. we had met this couple in Canada on the icefield parkway several months ago. Well, maybe it’s still a center of “some-where”
