Try km 30 and above. Wow. Pelicans, seals, dolphins, whales, great blue herons, vultures and stray dogs. Great beach. Warm and beautiful water. Great sunrise and sunset South Campos

Nice beach, generally clean and not to steep. Surf is steady and often grows through the day but never a problem getting in and out of the warm water. When the tide is out there are huge expanses to explore due to the gentle slope....More

I've been going to San Felipe for over 40 years but about 7 yrs ago, I swore it off because I saw it as another dirty unsafe town south of the border. As a turn of fairness, we went for a week in April 2016...More

This is not the"South Beach"of Miami, Florida, as one (drunk?) poster seems to think! Rather, it's a beautiful beach in San Felipe, Mexico.

If you go anywhere in the South Beach area, make sure you lock your car and belongings in a safe. Don't leave anything valuable in your room, including passports, money, camera equipment, computers, anything. You'll get robbed as soon as you turn your back. Sorry,...More
