“Wonderful Oasis in the Desert”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Early in 1973 Mex 1 still had a huge unpaved gap all the way from El Rosario to the state line at Guerrero Negro. That gap was closed later that year, and a wonderful hotel, called "El Presidente" appeared at Cataviña. It was a hotel in grand style, complete with swimming pool, and two throbbing diesel generators took turns making the hotel a modern outpost in the desert. After a few years the hotel became "La Pinta", and in its latest incarnation it is called "Hotel Misión Cataviña"

The hotel is still first rate. The rooms have been kept up to date and they are elegant and clean. The rates are a bit on the high side, but when you consider where you are and what is being offered, they are acceptable.

There is WiFi in the lobby and the hotel offers a satellite phone, and since the optical fiber came through in 2004, landline calling is also available at Cataviña.

The comedor (dining room) was always highly acceptable, but during our last visit we took our meals across the road at "La Enramada" operated by Salvador and Socorro Velasco and so we can't comment on the current status of the hotel's comedor.

The hotel is quite an establishment that makes for a memorable Baja experience.
