There are many unspoiled fishing secrets on the Mexican 1 highway. Its not a freeway like stateside, but rather a 2 lane paved winding journey. South of Encinatas and way before you arrive in
Cabo San Lucas, there are countless secret untouched fishing villages. San Quintin, Baha Mexico is one such village. About 200 miles from the Mexican Border, and about 4 and 1/2 hours driving time is what it takes to discover this paradise, and fishing village mecca of about 5,000 residents. Rooms, in the village range from 30 to 60 dollars a nite. There are so sportfish guided rentals and boats to rent on your own.
San Quintin Mex is a breathtaking trip back into yesteryear, And is just one of the many villages that still exist on the 95% of undeveloped Cortez Sea beachline.
The dock is quaint and the beaches are undisturbed. Everything inhabits these waters, sculpin, dorato, corvina, bonita, yellowtail, rock cod, albacore,mahi and countless other denizens of the ocean. You name it and its here. You can fish, dive, snorkel, spearfish, surf and kayak. You can barbecue everywhere, rooms are cheap, and its a trip into the 1950’s. Little Cantinas abound, mostly catering to the migrant agricultural workers where a meal is very homemade and very inexpensive. There is quite a bounty of oysters and mollusks on the table because San Quintin is home to a very large chem free oyster and mollusk farm business .
