please contact the
Salomon, the caretaker.

guests are four kayaks. You
are welcome to take them out whenever you would like. You'll
find kayaking easy going and fun in the gentle protected waters
right in front of the house. The sea lion colony is a
short paddle away.
Swim in the Warm
The swimming is safe in the
protected cove. Gentle surf and warmer water temperatures make
Los Frailes bay an ideal place for swimming.
Unbelievable Fishing in the Sea of Cortez
Baja's East Cape region is
famous for its excellent fishing. Seasonally you will find
dorado, tuna, wahoo, grouper and marlin. The
Salomon, can arrange fishing trips through local fishermen with
pangas. Their rates are around $60/person for 4 hours and
they provide all the rods, reels, and lures.
These fishermen are excellent
and have a lifetime of experience. Many of our guests have
returned with too many fish to eat and take home. Not
surprising when you can actually watch the fish jump out of the
water from the patio. Take a look at our
fishing photo album and
the seasonal fishing chart.
Windsurf in the bay or Find a Good Break
The summer months are the
best time for surfing. Some of the best surfing on the
East Cape is a short drive away at
9 Palms. Any summer morning you may see a caravan of
resident Cabo Pulmo surfers heading down the coast to their
favorite spots. If you surf, just hang out in Cabo Pulmo
and you'll surely find someone who can point you in the right
direction. Cabo Pulmo also is home to many seasonal wind
surfers. Their high season is the winter months.
Wind surfing is good in this area and north of here is Los
Barrilles, a wind surfer's Mecca.
in the hills
There is a
remarkable hiking trail in nearby Cabo Pulmo. Its a
two-hour trail that loops around Pulmo Mountain called the
"Vista Trail". After the hike, treat yourself to something
to eat at one of Cabo Pulmo's three restaurants.
Miles of sandy
beach all to yourself
The beach at
Los Frailes is a long, wide white sand beach where you can walk
for hours without seeing a soul. For the avid shell
collector we can direct to you a beach known for its abundance
of beautiful shells. Or take the kids and a picnic and enjoy
exploring the remains of an old shipwreck at another nearby
