We bought a sticker for Winnie saying there are no bad days in Mulegé and we have certainly found this to be true. One of the things I like best about slow travel is Kathy and I get to choose how long to stay in one place. Depending on how well we like a spot we may stay overnight or months.
It says a lot about Huerta Don Chano RV Park in Mulegé that we are still here after two weeks. This is a great place! We have excellent Wifi, electrical and water hook ups, and a sanitation dump. The price is perfect for us, a mere 200 pesos ($10) a night. The owner, Manuel, is kind, helpful and a great resource for services in Mulegé. This place is more than an RV park, there are houses and mobile homes for rent and even land available for building your own home. Some people live here year round, its a warm and friendly community. Best of all the park is right on the Mulegé River, a beautiful waterway leading to the Sea of Cortez (a pleasant hour’s walk away).
Mulegé central is about a 30 minute walk from the RV park. Its a tiny town with no grocery store, usable ATM or major attractions. But it’s lovely, charming and friendly with great hilly streets for walking. There are a few restaurants, hotels, a pharmacy and a sundries store. There is a beautiful town square and a small museum. We shop at the local mercado and there is an abundance of fresh, affordable food. We use the services at the excellent Claudia’s laundry. We enjoy the slow paced, simple days here.
The Rotary Club is quite active in Mulegé. They host lots of activities which then support the local fire department, optometry care and other charitable entities. We really enjoyed their annual pig racing event. There was a great band, tasty food and I even won 30 pesos. I bet on “Swine Flew” and she came in first!
There are lots of retired folks in Mulegé, from the U.S. and Canada. The great weather, affordable prices and natural beauty explains why. We leave this delightful place tomorrow, heading further south. I know we will return some day. Perhaps you will consider a visit too. We’d love to hear about it!
