On my way home from town (town being a bit of a stretch – I went to Cabo Pulmo in search of internet and some bread, water, and salchichas for Capitan Ron’s dogs) I decided to drive down a new road. There were two signs, one said Propriedad Privada (Private), the other was a Parque Nacional sign for Playa Los Arbolitos. The road was a bit dodgy, but we arrived safely. They wanted to charge about $5.00 to enter, but I just wanted to see the beach. I had no plans to stay, the water was too rough to swim and I had my own beach palapa just down the road.
Luna and I popped down to the beach for a quick peak, then headed back to our rig. The caretaker urged me to take the hike along the bluff to the secluded beach. You don’t have to say “secluded beach” twice to me. I’m all over it after the words are first uttered. The hike was gorgeous. Even more amazing were the natural rock sculptures at the other end. It was worth much more than the price of admission!
The caretakers dog charged me and Luna thrice: once when we arrived, the second time when we first tried to leave, the third time when I approached the guy about giving him money in exchange for my extended adventure to the secluded beach. He wouldn’t take my money. It might have been the dogs.
