"IF" you mean the Mirador, they are working at a brisk pace to reopen. The actual sites have been cleaned up of weeds and brush. They were working on the building which housed the office and restaurant. It has been idle for I think 7 or 8 years. Also unsure of water, electricity and sewer. Great views but you need a "toad" to run to "town" because as you say, it's a little isolated. Should be easy to get into Totonaka this time of year and you can walk to most places except "El Mirador", LOL. There are also a few private spaces around but again, you may need a towed vehicle.

Yes, I meant Mirador. It's not easy to get info on the place, so thanks for the update.
I'm thinking of setting up a "winter place" in or near Guaymas. I worked in L. Amer. for 15 years and my spanish is pretty good, so I'm thinking Guaymas might be a better fit for me than S.C. Do the first season in a cheap trailer to get the lay out of the place.
That's the idea anyhow.

In my opinion, that's the smartest thing to do. Look around, get a feel and then dive in. Many folks came here in RVs. Guaymas may be a little tougher to find a spot, I'm unsure if the neat old Mar de Cortez/Sea of Cortez Hotel still rents rv spots or not. If you came down and stayed at Totonaka for a week or two,then you could scout around and see what private spaces are for rent. Many folks started out the same, then maybe bought a lot and parked their RV permanently or lived in it while they built. Your thoughts of staying and learning first hand are the best. Ron

RonYeah, if one reads thru the Trip Adviser's reviews of the Hotel, one gets the feeling that for a number of years, the owners have let the place go and have been "milking it". People talk about "what a shame it is", given the history, location and architecture.Maybe one or more of the younger kids have taken over and are infusing some energy(money) back into the place.

I would be interested in the Mirador and if they plan to open it again. We stayed there in 2006 on our way north from La PeƱita, but we since usually stayed at the El Cortez hotel RV park in Guaymas because it was convenient. We are not going back south anymore but might be interested in going as far as San Carlos/Guaymas for a month or two occasionally. We drove out to the Soggy Peso and drove down by the Mirador in early December but it didn't look like anything was happening there then.

Motomech, Unless I am mistaken, Wy Wnot was talking about the old El Mirador RV park on the west side of San Carlos. I think you are referring to the Sea of Cortez Hotel in Miramar, Guaymas which has an RV park also.

There is a sign at El Mirador that indicates they are selling building lots there.

My latest grapevine information is that the old restaurant, El Oasis, will be taken over by Bonifacios. The old RV sites are being prepped for residencial lots, and, apparently, many have been sold already. The old tennis courts will be taken over, for now, by the San Carlos Pickleball Assoc.

San francisco beach by Bahia Delfin is private property and the owner does not want RVs there. The policia have been given direction to give citations to boondockers. They have been lax in the past.

Only the first 20 meters where the tide comes in is federal property. Past the dunes, or natural seawall, it is illegal to boondock an RV there as it is private property. RVs need to be in town at an RV park.

What will happen when the RVs and tent camps roll in for a couple of weeks during Semana Santa? Ron

Excellent, question. The landowner can choose who he wants to be there and who he does not want to be there. 100000 semana Santa visitors is an economic windfall to the town, whereas a dozen boondockers barley add a peso to thhe businesses, because by their nature, they are living as cheap as possible on everyone else's infrastructure
