GOLF  Phone from the U.S. (01152-617-75523).

Offers a 18 hole  golf course, par 72, 6820 yards, 119 slope. Fee includes a   mandatory golf cart: $34.00 (PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE), locker room, power carts, golf shop, rental clubs, driving range, coffee shop, cocktails.

It is located 25 minutes from the house. Turn left at the billboard and drive toward Ensenada, look for it on the right hand side of the road.

I personally have not played this course but my colleagues tell me that the quality of the course is excellent. I have seen the course and its setting is breath-taking, & I understand that it is rarely crowded.(CLICK HERE FOR PHOTO)

MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS AT THE BAJA COUNTRY CLUB COURSE, (NO WAITING!)

SCUBA DIVING The Bufadora is an exceptional diving area. From the house turn right at the entrance ( the large billboard with the arrow ) and proceed up the scenic winding road to the Bufadora, approximately a twenty minute drive. FOR DETAILED INFORMATION CLICK HERE.

BICYCLING Bring your bike, your Cannondale is not necessary, any old bike will do! Ride along the ocean (when the tide is out) and luxuriate in the gentle breezes of Baja, My favorite ride is during the sunset hours. Turn right from the house, the shoreline is rock hard (at low tide) and continue north to the end, it's approximately a 15-20 minute ride. What a joy to take a spin on one of the most unspoiled beaches in the world where there are hundreds of pelicans and swallows resting on the shoreline. This ride is a must!

TENNIS    There are 4  tennis courts at the club, there is rarely a wait and the last time I checked there was no fee for its use. (The club is temporarily closed and will be opened under new management). The courts were opened the last time I checked. Please check with me before arriving.

 

 

 

 

 

FISHING    The fishing in northern Baja is excellent. Yellow Tail, Blue fin and Big eye tuna, Calico, Bass, Dorado,  Wahoo, Barracuda, Bonita, Halibut, Marlin, Perch, and Rock Cod are just a few of the many fish off these waters. Anglers will find a variety of sport-fishing boats.

THIS IS THE ONE THAT I WOULD RECOMMEND. THE "RENEGADO".

A 35 PASSENGER WITH LARGE BAIT TANKS, DAILY LOCAL TRIPS TO THE FAMOUS "TODOS SANTOS ISLANDS", PUNTA BANDA AND THE SAN MIGUEL REEF. DEPARTS FROM ENSENADA. THE COST IS VERY INEXPENSIVE, JUST $35.00 PER PERSON, INCLUDES FISHING ROD AND REEL, HOOKS, SINKERS AND LIVE BAIT. DEPART AT 7:00 A.M. AND RETURN AT 3:00 P.M.

Live bait is available most of the time for private boats. If you bring your own boat to Mexico, a Mexican boat permit is required. A fishing permit is required of everyone on board. These can be obtained from many San Diego tackle shops and tourist offices. Request a copy of Mexican regulations as well.

On the way to the Bufadora look for the half day fishing excursions. They take you on a boat and you fish off the Punta Banda Peninsula. I understand that  it's a fun day of fishing and  fun for the whole family!

Water sports. Just minutes from the house is a boat launching area, (from the house turn left at the guard gate).   Launch your own boat. My favorite boat ride is to Estero Beach resort (approximately 25 minutes), you can anchor your boat and have lunch at the outdoor seaside restaurant. It's an absolutely awesome experience! Remember to get back while the tide is up, its dangerous trying to return at low tide.
   Kids009.jpg (64260 bytes) SURFING: SAN MIGUEL, 7 miles north of town, just before the toll gate.  Good rights on a rocky beach, some shoulder hopping lefts with a south swell.
TODOS SANTOS,  5 miles off shore, due west of town. These waves come in uninterrupted from the ocean, and really pump. Boat access.
WATERSPORTS, Estero Beach is the perfect calm bay for all types of water sports, including water skiing, boardsailing, and personal watercraft.
HORSEBACK RIDING, Treat yourself to a tour of the many sights in the area and ride along the beach with one of the local guides. There are many rentals along the way to the Bufadora, the last check was $7.00 per hour! (PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE).
