UPDATE, November 10, 2014...Glad to pass along reports from recent visitors to Bahia de los Angeles that the town is rebounding from the devastation from Hurricane Odile:
"If you are a flora/fauna lover, get down ASAP. This is the greenest northern Baja desert we've ever seen. There are also zillions of beautiful butterflies all over. Never have we seen such greenery and even grass (yes grass!) growing on the mountains and islands. If you are into birds, we saw the largest concentration of diving pelicans every day.
All of the washouts have excellent detours and any vehicle can make it. Every business, even those who had Odile damage, are open. Lots of cold beers in stock and delicious food in the restaurants. We brought donations of clothing, bedding, and bug spray. The town seemed to be very well saturated regarding donations.
We frequented several restaurants and stores and asked if there's anything we can do to help. The resounding answer was "come to Bahia". They need our business. If you want to lend a hand while you are there, try some beach clean-up with a stiff rake and heavy gloves. We really enjoyed it..."

Off-Road racing also attracts visitors to the Bay. The world famous Baja 1000 Off Road Race
usually passes thru Bahia de los Angeles when the course runs from Ensenada to La Paz, every other year. There is also a local off-road race, the "Bahia 200", which takes place annually during the first week of February.
The surrounding desert offers unique destinations, including Montevideo

. Inquire locally in town, or at the Museo
(Museum) for additional details. Joel Prieto
