I don't remember the fuel
stops other than Guerro Negro and Santa Rosalia. I've done the round trip La Paz
to San Diego
several times but always in small vehicles such as a Toyota pickup or small Kia sedan.
Daylight is the better choice - I've almost hit donkeys, horses, and cattle walking down the middle (not across but along the middle) of the road in the middle of the night.
There are some pretty steep down grades with 20 mph corners along the way - like 10% for a mile or more so be sure your truck and trailer brakes are setup correctly.
I don't know much about the current
status of Puerto Escondido but when I was there, ( six or eight times 2002 thru 2004), nothing worked as it should, the water depth
near the piers was very iffy, and trying to find anyone that knew anything was impossible.
The Mexican authorities had installed new mooring
docks, fuel equipment
, and small buildings. Electricity was almost non-existent and the officials were arguing over who was authorized to collect the fees
for the mooring
And, when they put in 50 new moorings - they forgot to tighten and safety
wire the shackles that attach the anchor
chain to the mooring ring. Many boats came adrift in the spring and summer of 2004.
That was 10-years ago and I am really sure that the Mexicans have got all the details sorted out and everything runs efficiently now.
