How to get there

Transport
Car
Access
No walk

About 275 miles south of the border. Take the Mexico 1 past the turn off to Punta Baja in El Rosario. Go about 22km and look for a dirt road turning off to the right. The roads can be hard to pass with rain, then a 4x4 will be best. 2 hour drive on a dirt road to get to the spot. There is a small fishing village at the base of the point. Park next to the spot.
