After your first check point after Ensenada, proceed up the highway pass then down again. Sign posted at the bottom of the pass. Punta Santa Tomas. The dirt road is long and bad in spots. When you arrive you need to be on the south side of the river mouth. You will figure it out.

On A South? - I was told it would be good on a south.... but got there and it was flat.. (la fonda was shoulder high). Just got back to SD now.... what a waste of tiome, gas, and shock absorber life that was... should have stayed at k 38 or gone a little further to PSJ

Yes, LNG at Punta China and 4-lane rd to PSJ - I go to Punta San Jose often. Spoke with Victor (owns about 3,000 acres in the PSJ area. He's going to sell to ? to provide the developer ownership to pave a 4-lane road from Punta China (new LNG facility that will wipe out the place) south to the Punta Colonent to provide energy etc to the mega port (larger than Ensenada and LA ports) This will happen in probably 3 to 5 years according to Victor.

Punto Santo Thomas stay at the Casita - 300 pesos a night, we fit 3 of us, one on each bed and one on the couch (except I really slept under the stars) Forgot the abuelas name but have them open the restaurant for you. The food is good but kinda pricey, it was about 30 american for dinner for three. Make sure you get the local wine also. very good. The husband of the woman who runs it also can take you out fishing for the day. And Christ, you can't beat the view. Also practice your spanish, no english spoken here.
