Guys we are planning a fishing trip in late Jan and we wanted to drive from San Diego to San Lucas on hiway one,then the son will pick us up in the boat and we will fish from Mazatlan to Colmia for 2 weeks the question is there a RV park in San Lucas where you can leave a RV for a couple of weeks.
I just do not want to ride the boat from San Diego to Mazatln besides that I would get the fuel bill lol think buses use a lot fuel guess again, you guys that go down every year can you help me out


good luck

Clifford,

Try Villa Serena RV Park, between Los Cabos.

Also, there is a ferry that will take you from La Paz to Mazatlan (actually, Topolobampo), where you'd have more choices for less money.

Can't help you on the Baja Clifford but if you decide to do as Sean suggested and travel on the mainland then that's our playground.  But I expect there are lots of storage options wherever you are.  If you befriend the guard, treat him as a friend and promise him some money when you get back then he'll watch your bus like it was his own.

Bob, are you and Marilyn going to be in the area if so you can go fishing with us the boat as I call it (I get corrected) has plenty of room and we would like for you and her to see it.
Boat people are strange like some of the owners of high end Prevost not liking calling their bus a motorhome you don't call it a boat,but a kitchen is a kitchen to me same as the bedrooms lol still haven't figured out the right and left thingy out yet


good luck

Also you can aboard the train to Cooper Canyon in Topolobampo to Chihuahua and maybe we can meet in Divisadero or Creel station

I think you mean "Copper Canyon", Canyón del Cobre. How expensive is that train with the bus, and how many days does it take?

Hi Steve,

You are right. The price from Los Mochis (Topolobampo) to Divisadero is $907 pesos and to Creel station is $1083 pesos ($70 and $83 US) per person one way and as I know you can stop in any station for a day and continue the trip next day. About the bus I don't know if they still have the service to upload the bus n the train but if you want I can ask, they are located 10 minutes from my office, in the past I remember they do that with big groups.

You can check the prices and the full route in www.chepe.com.mx

They no longer offer the "piggyback" train through the Copper Canyon.  Mexico prohibited it in 2007; we were on one of the first trains of the very last season it operated.  Even when it was running, though, the only way to get on it was to be on an organized caravan -- it was not open to drive-ups.

Today the caravans park in Los Mochis and ride the passenger train up to Divisadero and back, staying in a hotel.  They have someone to watch your pets in Los Mochis.

The video of that stretch of the piggyback train is in this post:
http://ourodyssey.blogspot.com/2006/10/divisidero-to-los-mochis-on-piggy-back.html

If you go through our blog from October and November of 2006 you can follow our whole 38-day caravan, including the entire train ride as well as the Baja Ferry.  There are a couple more videos, too, including loading the bus onto the train.
