    Just drove back on Easter Sunday from a nice 9 day vacation at Chivato. The drive down was not bad with the extra daylight savings time but way too much traffic on the way back!

    These are some photos from the trip.

    The sting rays were thick!

    I havn't been down there in 15 years. Is there still camping spots available? I heard that the gringo houses took over the camping area. Are the people at the hotel/resteraunt rude? I heard the look down their nose at the "campers" now.

    The reason the hotel is so expensive now and has no concern for clientelle is because its a fence for a criminal org., or so Ive heard.

    A LOT OF RUMORS, A LOT OF BAD FEELINGS. WE ALL WISH THERE WAS A PLACE TO HANG OUT LIKE THE OLD DAYS. THERE IS ALSO NO LONGER A STORE,(THE HOTEL BOUGHT IT). YOU HAVE TO GO TO MULEGE OR SANTA ROSALIA TO RESUPPLY. EVEN SO IT IS A VERY COOL SPOT!
