After a week at Daggett’s campground we decided to move down the beach to Campo Archelon and we are happy we did!! Campo Archelon was a complete joy. The campsites are right on the beach with a palapa, table and chairs. The cost was $8 USD per person per night and they did not charge us fro Noah so $16 per night. There are no hookups here at all but there are showers and bathrooms that are much cleaner than Daggets. The beach here is cleaner too and the are a few casitas for rent. Wifi is available in front of the office with tables, chairs and hammocks and cost $1 USD. Antonio who runs the place is in the process opening up a cafe with internet access on the property.
Town is just far enough away not to walk, but a bicycle would have been helpful. I managed to paddle board to town one day to pick up some milk. There are a couple of grocery stores in town, water can be filled at La Mission, propane is available for $14 pesos per liter, and there is a dump station at Daggets that cost $100 pesos if you are not staying there.
To say we enjoyed Bahia de los Angeles is an understatement. We became completely immersed into this small fishing village community and Shannon even went out for girls night with some of the locals. We had the pleasure of paddle boarding with dolphins, swimming with whale sharks and sea lions, watching sea turtles hatch and fish for grouper and sea bass. We created many wonderful friendships in Bahia de los Angeles and after 17 days we set off to explore more of Baja.
