I personally have not played this

excellent. I have seen the course and its
setting is breath-taking, & I understand that it is rarely crowded.(CLICK

MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS AT THE
BAJA COUNTRY CLUB COURSE, (NO WAITING!)
Bufadora is an exceptional diving area. From the house turn right at the
entrance ( the large billboard with the arrow ) and proceed up the
scenic winding road to the Bufadora, approximately a twenty minute
drive. FOR DETAILED
INFORMATION CLICK HERE.
Bring your bike, your Cannondale is
not necessary, any old bike will do! Ride along the ocean (when the tide
is out) and luxuriate in the gentle breezes of Baja, My favorite ride is
during the sunset hours. Turn right from the house, the shoreline is
rock hard (at low tide) and continue north to the end, it's
approximately a 15-20 minute ride. What a joy to take a spin on one of
the most unspoiled beaches in the world where there are hundreds of
pelicans and swallows resting on the shoreline. This
ride is a must!
There are 4 tennis courts at the
club, there is rarely a wait and the last time I checked there was no
fee for its use. (The club is temporarily closed and will be opened
under new management). The courts were opened the last time I checked.
Please check with me before arriving.

On the way to the Bufadora look for the
half day fishing excursions. They take you on a boat and you fish off
the Punta Banda Peninsula. I understand that it's
a fun day of fishing and fun for the whole family!
FISH ON THE BAY SIDE JUST 100 FEET FROM THE FRONT DOOR OF
OUR HOME. A FOUR POUND HALIBUT WAS THE CATCH OF THE DAY!
sports. Just minutes
from the house is a boat launching area, (from the house turn left at
the guard gate). Launch your own boat. My favorite boat ride
is to Estero Beach resort (approximately 25 minutes), you can anchor
your boat and have lunch at the outdoor seaside restaurant. It's an
absolutely awesome experience! Remember to
get back while the tide is up, its dangerous trying to return at low
7 miles north of town, just before the
toll gate. Good rights on a rocky beach, some shoulder hopping
lefts with a south swell.
5 miles off shore, due west of town. These waves come in uninterrupted
from the ocean, and really pump. Boat access.
Estero Beach is the perfect calm bay for all types of water sports,
including water skiing, boardsailing, and personal watercraft.
RIDING, Treat yourself to
a tour of the many sights in the area and ride along the beach with one
of the local guides. There are many rentals along the way to the
Bufadora, the last check was $7.00 per hour! (PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO
