Mulege and Bahia De Concepcion

The Mulege river near the mission makes Mulege Mexico a beautiful place, an oasis of date palms. But it also floods with some frequency washing out houses and bridges.

I stayed at Las Casitas in Mulege and would recommend it--it was about $25 a night. I visited the museum which is a former prison. But mainly my intention was to take the Hobie sailing in the Bahia Concepcion, about 20 miles south of Mulege. Various campsites in and around Coyote Bay. Little islands just off shore. Warm water. I went for it.

These places by the water and close to the main road are heavily visited and perhaps over loved by RV folks and ramblers like me (and for good reasons).  Timing a visit: Dec.-March are the peak times for these campsites filling up. The weather varies throughout the year. I visited in November as I wanted warm water and mild temperatures without the intense heat/humidity and storms that I heard can happen June-to early Oct. I hear that spring is a great time to visit too. The desert and the water has its wonders and beauties anytime of year.
