I was fortunate enough to see this place in 1968 when it was unspoiled. It is still beautiful but is now strewn with camp and RV site. Still an amazing body of water.

Jacques said it was the richest marine environment anywhere. It was-until opened up to Japanese fishermen. They were thrown out and the bay is coming back and is well worth exploration. Take the opportunity to swim with whale sharks (harmless)! Great fishing - trophy fishery in summer months. Lots and lots of history and beautiful scenery. See the second of... More

On our flight to Loreto, we met a wonderful woman named Shirley who has lived at Posada on Bahia Concepcion for about 30 years. On her invitation, we stopped by to see her and the community. WOW! We passed several beaches on the way north from Loreto that looked heavenly, but Posada is extraordinary. There are 3 natural hot springs... More

Bahia Conception is the perfect microcosm of Baja. Remote, stunningly beautiful, small burghs of Mexican's and Gringos with cool bars and restaurants, and amazing water sports. If you only go to one place in search of the real Baja, Bahia Concepcion is what you're searching for.

Kayaking off the beach at Santispac continues to a high lite of our year travelling. We also camped and hung out. There is a hot spring behind the beach. The water is stunning in it's clarity. We wish we had wheels to see more of the beaches. The Baja peninsula is just stunning.

Unfortunately Conception Bay is now a main tourist destination for RVers who spend many winter months along its shores. The results are that there is very limited camping sites available unless you kayak to a remote beach. The reason for its popularity is obvious. The largest bay in Baja is gorgeous and worth your time, whether trying to camp along... More

The three coves at the head of Bahia Concepcion are Santipak Beach, Posada Concepcion, and El Burro Beach. This stretch is the most beautiful of the Ensanada to Loerto stretch of Highway 1 in my opinion (and most others!). The newer restuarant at Santispak (closer to the gate) is very good with your typical beach side cabana menu. Also down... More

The bay of Conception was beautiful driving by on the highway 1. Several camps right on the black. I would recommend Coyote beach camp.

I've been traveling to Mulege & Bay for 15 years. Doesn't get any better. Beach camping with my standard poodle, kayaking, snorkeling, claming, watching the sunrise while walking a beautiful beach. Love the dances at Santipac. Socializing with others that share my love for the area. Loadind up rv for depart this Saturday. If anyone heading south might have room.

This is one of the few remaining unspoilt areas that has not yet been exploited by developers. Great little restaurants with the best fish tacos, and nice cold cervesas for just a few dollars. Don't expect many amenities, but bring a snorkel and mask and you will just love it. Watch out for the small sting rays on the sandy... More
