Bahia de Los Angeles
Pueblo on the Sea of Cortez
A very quiet tiny town.
In February, 2005, the pueblo Bahia de Los Angeles was a very quiet town. Perhaps a few
cars each hour, travel on the main road in the pueblo.
The road into Bahia de Los Angeles begins
at the junction of the transpeninsular Highway #1 and is in excellent condition.

The Pemex gas station was not open. Construction work appeared to be proceeding very slowly.

However, gasoline was available from an independent supply in town! This independent even has
their own, very colorful gas pump. The price for this independent gasoline is $7.50 pesos/liter
vs. $5.94 pesos per liter from Pemex.

The Museum is a must see when in the town of Bahia de Los Angeles. One of the best exhibits,

There are several small grocery markets on the main road. Near the end of town, the road
takes a right turn and goes up hill a bit. You will find the best grocery here, by the
name of Xitlali. Very good selection of groceries, fresh fruits, vegetables, and pretty much
everything that you will need while staying in town.

The main attraction in Bahia de Los Angeles is of course, the Bahia [bay]. Fishing, diving
and kayak exploring seem to be the important things to do. There are several RV Campgrounds.
We saw electrical hookups, but no water or sewer connections in these campgrounds.
