The Daggett’s family operate a hotel, campground and fishing charter business from their lot of land on the beach of Bahia de Los Angeles. The campsites sit close to the beach with fantastic views of the islands of the Sea of Cortez. Each site has a palapa and a stone-built grill and table. There are bathrooms and showers on-site and are somewhat clean. There is a dump station right next to the bathhouse, complimentary for guests staying at the camp. It is available for other campers for a $5 fee. No power or water is available. Camping was $10 USD per person per night but they didn’t charge us for Noah so $20 per night. We were excited to be on the Sea of Cortez side of Baja and immediately paid for a week.
The camp dogs here are a little overwhelming. Two pit bulls named Luna and Tuna are sweet and will visit your campsite daily. A cocker Spaniel named Peque was more elusive. The fish cleaning station is in the middle of the camp and the local catch is filleted right there. A couple of guys gave us some wonderful Mako shark steaks and yellowtail fillets. The fisherman throw the fish heads on the beach for the seagulls and vultures to eat, which makes for a messy beach after a while. I spent some time throwing the fish heads into the sea and cleaning up some extra dog poop.
This is the first place we really got settled into and set up the hammocks, pumped up the paddleboards and established an outside kitchen. Yea, we dug our heels in here!! The days in Bahia de Los Angelos were magical as we paddle boarded with dolphin, swam with whale sharks and watched sea turtles hatch from their nest. Noah’s education was coming from these amazing experiences rather than a school book and we all felt at home.
