We called it our redneck camping after seeing how packed our trailer and trucks were. We found El Cardonal on the web and decided to give it a try. Here in Baja, it's a tradition of local families to go out camping on easter weekend. El Cardonal is located on the east cape, just 40 minutes away from Los Barriles...
