News and Events, Questions and Answers



Holiday Gift Of Art Opening Reception and First Call For Baja Photographers< - A Holiday Gift of Art, Small Works Show, opens with a gala party on Thursday, Dec 2nd at 5:30 at Cafelix. Artists wanting to submit their artwork for this show can do so on Monday & Tuesday, Nov 29th & 30th from noon to 4pm at Cafelix. Entry requirements are available on the ARTS website.

The Second Annual Juried Photography Show takes place at Cafelix from Jan 13th to Feb 21st. This show is open to everyone who lives in BCS. All work will be juried by two independent judges. This year the judges will be Bryan Walwork from Vancouver Island, British Columbia and Linda Sue Scott from San Francisco. There are two categories – one being photos taken in, and representative of Baja California Sur, and the other being open to any photo. Prizes will be awarded for the best in show for both categories, together with awards for the winner and two runners up. Start thinking about what you want to enter! For information on fees and rules for entry, visit the ARTS (Artists of Todos Santos) website. - Diane Knight, dianekknight ( -at- ) hotmail.com, www.artistsoftodossantos.com, 145-0586



Crossing At Tecate - Greg recently asked about crossing at Tecate taking the free 2 vs taking 2D (toll). I have tried this part of the way (the first part) and it was just too many traffic lights so i got on 2D again, though it might have opened up from all the lights and traffic right after that. But just that section was nasty. If someone does take it all the way would be interested in that feedback. Just a reminder for others. For easy reference, the link is www.la-ventana.info go to the section at the bottom, mexico, then travel then by land. Look for the one marker Tecate south. Here is the direct link which is harder to remember. Safe and enjoyable travels - Dean, dean ( -at- ) keyboardorganizer.us, www.la-ventana.info, La Paz


Baja Road Report - The section of the main road under construction below Tecate is truly awful. I would avoid it completely if at all possible. Quicker to map your way through Otay Mesa or San Ysidro. Same is true for about 10 miles of the main road under construction through the mountains south of Ensenada. The recent rains turned part of the detours into a giant, car-sucking mud hole, with a single, passable lane at one point for quite a distance. Road workers were nowhere to be seen to help unsnarl the mess. Unfortunately, there may not be another way around this area, so you may just want to wait it out if it's been raining. - Alan, alan ( -at- ) Baja1.com, Todos Santos


Update, Las Tunas Home Invasion - Thanks to my kind neighbor Jocelyn Mathe, I have recovered my passport. He followed the robber's trail up the arroyo between Jack Hamilton and Kaia Thomsen and across Camino Las Playitas and found where they unloaded all my personal stuff and passport and put everything into The Black Bag with all the money and other electronic items. They also left two plastic bags that they had used.

I filed a proper and lengthy report and the police actually disrupted my Thanksgiving Festivities to conduct their "investigation" No other items have been recovered, but the police and some of the Las Tunas neighborhood community have a good idea who the Gringo is and the police claim that they have a suspect in mind for the young man. Thanks to all who have conveyed their concern and support. Gracias - Art Rivera, chabraz ( -at- ) hotmail.com, 612 155 3389


Community Alert - In case you see a dark metallic green pick up Toyota no registration plate, car possibly involved in break-in, Las Tunas, dial from a Telcel 117 direct line to Ministerio Publico (DA's office) there is an investigation in process. Local police dial 145 1052 - Nina Sundqvist, Todos Santos


Copper Wire Missing? - Here's a thought to prevent that situation. Squirt construction foam, which is commonly available at the supply stores, down into the conduit below your main breaker at the meter base. At any 'registro' or pull box on your property squirt the foam into the conduit both ways. Use plenty. Also seek the assistance of someone who knows his way around electricity, right? The stiffs who steal cable are looking first for the site where there is a long run from the meter to the structure, so heads up. - Patrick Coffman


Estero Beach Hotel/Resort, Ensenada - Here's a shout out for the Estero Beach Hotel/Resort at the South end of Ensenada. It's located right on the water, with a beautiful vista of the south Ensenada bay. Guarded gate security, safe, clean grounds and rooms with views, very reasonably priced at around $70 ~ $90 US, pool and Jacuzzis, RV Park, pet-friendly with areas for walking, courteous, bilingual staff, and excellent restaurant / cocktail lounge. Dining Tip: Try the Mexican Combination Plate for dinner. A real bargain at around $80 pesos.

There is also a museun on the grounds with exhibits from 40 Centuries of Mexican Culture, and a gift shop / drug store. Internet is a little spotty in most rooms but available. Tip: Ask for a room with Internet, and the staff will try to put you nearer a spot where the reception is better.

I'm always astonished to find this hidden gem so uncrowded. When I asked the staff about this, they remarked that all the bad US publicity about the drug wars in Tijuana have hurt everyone in the entire region. Savvy Baja travelers who know better would be well advised to check out this resort the next time you're passing through. If you're already booked to stay somewhere else, at least try to stop here for lunch just to get a look see for your next trip:

The turn off may be a little hard to see so watch for the street signs. You will see a large sign for the Estero Beach Hotel/Resort west of the highway as you come North up the hill into the South end of Ensenada. Pablo Orta is one of the first lefts. If you miss that turn, any of the next six lefts from Ignacio Allende to Jose Maria Moralos y Pavon will get you there. Go three blocks to California y o Tercera and turn left. At Jose Maria Moralos y Pavon at the highway, there is a Pemex station on the west corner. - Alan, alan ( -at- ) Baja1.com, Todos Santos


Music Buddy Wanted - Hola Fellow Musicians: I play rhythm guitar and sing; I wish to meet fellow musician in TS for the purpose of playing music. No formal plans, just a get together from time to time. - Gordon Reid, captaincamila ( -at- ) yahoo.com


Which Cell Phone Is Best For Todos Santos? - Which cell phone is best for calling the United States from Todos Santos, Movie Star or Tel Cel? Does anyone have a heads up as to which one has the best reception and prices? Looking to be down there 6 weeks and we don't need a long term plan. Thanks for any info?

Softball Practice - Come one come all. Monday from 4-7 p.m. at the stadium in Todos Santos were we will practice for the next three weeks preparing for a tournament against the Mexican teams on the 19th of Dec. - Dan Binetti, danbinetti ( -at- ) yahoo.com, 044-612-11-70298, Todos Santos


About Travel Means - I`d like to know if there is a car rental or motorcycle rental in the area of Santa Rosalia, will be traveling the southern tip area and heading back the same way. I will appreciate any help or advise you can give me. Thank you. - Carlos


Guide For Sierra Laguna Trip - Does anyone have a recommendation for a guide with mules to take 2 or 3 gringos up to the Sierra from the Todos or Pescadero in late Jan / early Feb? Need someone who has at least minimal English and who can be reached by phone or preferably email. Any suggestions most appreciated. - Paul, paul ( -at- ) summerinspect.com, Todos Santos


New Mexican Dog Welfare Law (Courtesy, La Paz Gringos) - This is great news I had to share. Here's the link for you to see it. http://peninsulardigital.com/municipios/aprueban-ley-de-posesion-y-proteccion-de-los-animales/

Here's the rough translation: la Ley de Posesión y Protección de los Animales en BCS (the law of possession and protection of animals in BCS) has been aproved. Only one representative objected and opposed because she believes it wont be implemented since it doesnt represent the reality of many "sudcas". This law says that all house dogs must have a collar and get medical care.

Still the law was aproved by the rest of the representatives. The Vet Bertha Haro was present, as she's been the main force behind this initiative as the president of the colegio de veterinarios, along with some vet students from UABCS. They all celebrated the aproval. They assure that once dogs are healthier, it'll stop diseases that affect everyone and are transmitted by sick dogs. Now, with this law, the new requirements to get a pet will be implemented once it's published in the diario oficial.

Needed: New Situation And A New Vibration! - If you know the story of Cinderella, then you know me. For starters, I was born beautiful - so sue me! Some meanie took me from my mom and put me under the fence of a well-known animal rescue nutcase. Well, now I have two ugly step-sisters (real DOGS!) obviously very jealous of my good looks and they are mean to me. As a result, I have to spend most of my time in the house with THE CATS who just happen to hate me, too. I have keen powers of observation and have even learned (on occasion) to use the litter box. I fear that I'm becoming a "COG" - living somewhere in-between! In exchange for your love, good grub and a little quality beach time, I promise to be your playmate, faithful companion and fearless defender every day for the rest of my life. To help me get the heck outta here just e-mail cindyfenix ( -at- ) yahoo.com - and please - do it soon! - Todos Santos


Lost Dog - Still looking for Jack, the reddish/tan, male Pit Bull with the black and white collar. He was seen last week on monday or tuesday in Rancho Nuevo. I believe he is still around. He is VERY human friendly, will get into a car and is leash trained. If you see him, I am minutes away in Elias Calles(Rancho Del Mar). Please, any info is important to us. Reward. - Todd , toddgerson ( -at- ) ymail.com, 6121524494, Elias Calles
