Hipolito; Baja Califronia; Mexico

 

This was a little gem of a stop! We were told that most cruisers bypass this as its a littler further in on the coast rather than going straight down to Arbeojos from Asuncion. We anchored in about 15 feet over a clear sand bottom around 26 59.4506’N 113 58.3352’W. The area is a reserve for lobster and abalone and the locals are very strict about it. They will come to your boat and watch you get out of the water after a snorkel to make sure you are not taking any of the delicious bugs or abalone. The water is clear, and because of the reserve the marine life is all over the place. When you go to shore make sure you do the Baja shuffle to scare off the sting rays. The locals are very nice but do not speak any English (the ones we met) but will help you in any why they can.

** we used 2 guide books for this area: Mexico Boating Guide(Rains) and Jack Williams Baja Guide.**
