After 8 years of fishing out of Palmas de Cortez I have fallen in love with Los Barilles. I am in the process of buying a house just north of town across the street from Los Pescadores hotel. Plenty of room to store my 25ft Davis boat Bahia. Since I have never made the drive, I plan on making a trial run without the boat when escrow closes. I have a lot of questions. Is there a service that facilitates all the paperwork before you get to the border? How safe is the drive? Where are the safest best places to spend the night? I plan on staying on hwy 1. Is diesel readily available? I have a 2007 5.9 dually that doesn't need low sulfur diesel. How are the roads? Lastly, what is the availability of temporary slips at La Ribera marina? Thanks in advance for any advice or words of wisdom. Harley Boos aka Saltydoc.
