Upon disembarking from the ferry, we once again had our panniers and gas tanks searched and travel documents reviewed. Apparently drug trafficking is worse on the peninsula, so they have to be extra careful. And then we’re off to grab breakfast in Santa Rosalía proper. Today’s an easy day. We make our way from the east coast of the peninsula over to the west coast. Given that our ferry left a day earlier than anticipated, time is on our side.

We make it to our destination of Guerrero Negro by mid-afternoon and are left to our own devices until dinner later in the evening. So, we take the opportunity to do a little laundry in our hotel room sink and then go out in search of fish tacos. Matt’s been looking forward to them all trip, and we are now in the perfect region to find them. As we head out, Juan and Alfonso tell us about a fish taco truck they visited earlier that’s amazing. Unfortunately, by the time our group gets there, they’ve already folded up shop. Food vendors sell the catch they get for the day and then close down, which typically happens by about 2:00 or 3:00. So, we “settle” for some yummy al pastor tacos instead.
