it has been several years but we use to have a large group of 40-50 people that would come down and camp just north of la manga over the Christmas break. Is thisbare still open for camping and is it safe? This was a family tradition for us and we did it for near 20 years but stopped about five years ago due to security concerns. 
It was a tradition to bring goods for th fishing viallage school.
One year we also camped five or six miles north on a ranch I believ owned by Arnulfo? Is thisbarea still available to camp at?  I remember several locked gates that we needed to get a key from the rancher. How can this be arranged?? 
Also is JJ still around?

Replace your security concerns again with common sense and awareness as you did in the past and come on down, the only changes regarding our area is the US news media. We were North of La Manga Christmas day and there were "Gringo" campers in there behind the dunes at La Manga 2. Maybe not 50 camps but I'll bet near 50 folks. And as before, the people who live there will always be thankful for a little help. Ron

Sorry, yes, JJ is alive and well and as full of "who cares" as ever. He has moved down West toward the glorietta and across the street and has a much bigger place, big sign out front. Not sure about ranchers up North but Adan with Adan Tours would know them all. Ron

Yes, we have lived here full time for some years now. If you look at WY. weather today, that's one of the reasons. Ron

If you are talking about the area that many refer to as Cactus Island, then I believe it is still possible to camp there.


And, BTW, if you are wondering why it seems like the US news media and the rest of the world treat Mexico much harsher than the Mexican media, it's because most all of the Mexican media has been co-opted by the ruling party. Right now, that's the PRI.


The "best" news money can buy. The original article is from the New York Times.

BTW, this is one of the few truly independent news sources in Mexico.

We have camped in several locations. 1) on the north end of la manga near the cliffs, south of cactus island2) is north through the stop sign north of cactus island dirt road turn off. We are hoping to get up north through the locked stop sign gate. Sounds like Adan may be able to help us. We have always known it as Arnulfo’s because of the ranch hand that used to occupy the place.

That area North of Cactus Island has become a popular place for ATVs. Can get pretty busy and noisy on weekends up around Robinson Canyon. Pretty country but rough in places.
