Mar 28, 2017 - To Ciudad Constitucion

3/28 Bon forged onward, total of 500 more miles...countryside still greener than most other years! Arrived in Consitucion about 7, just as the darkness got total. Stayed at Hotel Oasis, no others had room!? First time we've encountered full accommodations! 840 pesos...a suite was all that was available!

Jan 29, 2012 - Constitucion

Just a short drive since we do not want to arrive in La Paz until Monday to do business. Staying at Hotel Maribel, cheap and more in line with our $12 ON per day budget, ha! I guess the lost address book is bound to follow me for quite some time! Bon's reminders not-with-standing, we are always facing some difficulty w/o phone #s or email addresses or street addresses...and now no phone to retrieve from! We are also getting into more 'regular travel mode seeking out roadside parking for ON stops I the car and hunting down the cheapest...

Feb 6, 2011 - Movin' on to CD Constitucion

Departure time of 8:30 a.m. came early but we were all hooked up and ready to go for our 95 mile-drive a little further south to CD Constitucion. We will be almost 900 miles into our journey when we arrive at our home for the next two nights at Palapa 206 RV Park. The first part of the trip was tedious, riding the ridges of the mountain in steep, sinuous ascents and descents. We took a break about halfway and the second half of the drive was much easier. We hit some flatter roads, straight, and even some 4-lane. The area around CD...

Nov 28, 2009 - MEX: Ciudad Constitucion

Nous quittons tôt pour nous diriger cette fois vers Ciudad Constitucion, une ville située au milieu de la péninsule et qui vit presqu’exclusivement des activités agricoles. Après avoir traversé la Sierra Giganta (eh oui, des mautadines de grosses montagnes!), la route est complètement droite et parcourt une vaste plaine jusqu’à la ville. Gérard en profite pour faire un peu de vitesse car on avance lentement la plupart du temps, dans la route des montagnes. D’ailleurs, un des panneaux routiers qu’on voit le plus souvent c’est « Curva...

Périple CAN-USA-MEX

Feb 15, 2009 - Cd Constitucion

Ciudad Constitucion – February 14, 2009 Our longest day today, 240 miles. We arrived in the campground about two this afternoon. Not really as bad a day as we anticipated. The roads were relatively wide and straight, so we made good time. Since it was/is Valentines day, the tour directors put on a dinner and party for us. Home made lasagna, with all the fixin’s including wine. Goody bags for each lady, with candy and stuff. We partied, and had a really good time. Sissie has a karaoke machine, so we tried to pretend we could sing. Good for...

Mar 12, 2008 - A Whale Of A Time – Gray Whales At Adolfo Lopez Mateo

The Gray Whale migration highway at Playa Los Cerritos and the surfing whales at Todos Santos, reported in earlier posts, didn’t give us our fill of whale watching. We met three delightful couples at Playa Tecolote near La Paz who invited us to join their small caravan as they moved northward and they too wanted to visit the whales at a favourite spot for Gray Whale Mothers and their new babies called Lopez Mateo. Using Manfred’s RV Park in Ciudad Constitucion as our base, we all jumped in their two club cab pick-ups for the ride out to the...

Mar 6, 2008 - New Friends At Tecolote – The Baja Shuffle & New Adventures

On our way North, we stopped again near La Paz to get some internet stuff done, to do loads and loads of laundry and let’s not forget the trampoline for Emma. We even took a dip in the most frigid swimming pool. No sooner had I connected the water hose, sewer hose and electrical cord than Manon pointed out a fire with tremendous black smoke right across the street from our site. The fire was in an abandoned industrial building and fortunately the strong wind was blowing in our favour. Just to be safe, I disconnected everything so that we...

Jan 16, 2008 - Loreto to Ciudad Constitucion

Today we awoke to a beautiful sunrise in Loreto. The campground we stayed at is in the "burbs" of Loreto. Only these burbs come complete with loud trucks, roosters, and chickens. Many in the caravan did not get a great nights sleep. However, Kristi and I slept thru it all. Another interesting thing to watch here is the upcoming election in February. The different candidates hire cars and trucks and attach huge speaker systems to broadcast their political message. The vehicles drive all over town blasting each candidates message and can be...

Mexico Bound!

Jan 8, 2008 - Crooked cops!

Tuesday January 8...10:00pm We were on the road about 8:45am this morning. We figured it was at least a 2 hour drive to Ciudad Constitution, maybe a bit more. Considering that we rarely drive any faster than 80 km/h, our average speed when you take into account the slow uphill grades is quite a bit closer to 70 km/h. We did make it into town at about 11:00am. The turn off towards Phillip and Patricia's house was at the beginning of town, but we needed a bank machine, a laudromat, and quite a few groceries...and some internet would have...

Dec 11, 2007 - Ciudad Constitucion to La Paz

Baja California, the peninsula, is more than 1000 miles long, runs more or less north-south from the California border at Tijuana to Cabo San Lucas just a few miles south of the Tropic of Cancer. This is the biggest peninsula in the world! Bigger than Italy. Geographically isolated from Mexico's mainland by the Sea of Cortez. Inhabited by various native tribes until the Spanish mission work of the Jesuits, Franciscans and Dominicans wiped them out with imported diseases and culturally dissastrous assimilation efforts. The hideout for...
