Si conduce desde EE. UU., La ruta más corta desde la frontera demorará al menos 12 horas. Sea cual sea su ruta, todos los conductores deben llegar a San Ignacio en su camino a Scorpion Bay y desde allí existen dos opciones.

 

OPCIÓN 1: Manténgase en la autopista 1. Es la más lenta de las dos opciones, pero es la forma más segura de ir con caminos pavimentados y señalización que lo llevan a Scorpion Bay. Desde San Ignacio, esta ruta es de aproximadamente 8 horas con algunas playas y calas muy hermosas entre Santa Rosalía y Loreto para admirar.

 

Consulte nuestras instrucciones detalladas a continuación.

 

OPCIÓN 2: Tome lo que se conoce como la carretera norte. Sin embargo, la mayor parte de esta ruta no está pavimentada, no tiene carreteras definidas ni señalización. Si nunca ha conducido por la carretera norte, nuestro hotel no lo recomienda. La ruta pasa por salares y arena muy suave y con tracción en las 4 ruedas y un vehículo para manejar múltiples terrenos es imprescindible. Se recomiendan varios repuestos, herramientas de excavación y comida y agua en caso de que se quede atascado en el camino. Es el camino menos transitado y es posible que no haya otros viajeros disponibles para ayudar. Si sigue esta ruta, le ahorrará aproximadamente 5 horas.

STEP BY STEP DRIVING INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1:

Do NOT go North. The road is dangerous and not passable. Leave the Loreto Airport. Turn left at the 1st cross street onto Carr. Transpeninsular/Cd Constitución-Loreto/Loreto-Ciudad Constitución/México 1. 

STEP 2:

Continue on Highway 1. When you reach a town called Cuidad Insurgentes, go RIGHT at the fork here. Follow the signs towards La Purisima to the north, approximately 85km or approximately 1 hour to Las Barrancas.  Beware of potholes on this road.

STEP 3:

THIS IS IMPORTANT. After 85km, there is a bend in the road, a water tower off to your left and a sign on your right that reads San Isidro, La Purisima and San Juanico (see photo). Make a LEFT turn. Unfortunately this sign is covered in stickers and can be hard to read! If you have hit a DIRT ROAD, you are on the wrong road. Turn around. 

STEP 4:

After approximately 10km you will make the first right at the sign that reads San Juanico. The drive from Las Barrancas to San Juanico is approximately 35km and approximately 40 minutes.  

STEP 5:

Once you reach San Juanico, veer left at the fork to be on the main road Dionisia Villarino. Follow the road nine blocks until you reach La Joya and turn right.  Our Hotel is on that block on the right side.
