Mexico Road Trip – Part 2 (Gotta Go!)
DAY SIX: Peace out, Guerrero Negro! We decided it was time to go, even though roads were a mess, and many areas where still washed out (in which case you go off road). It was encouraging to hear from locals that roads are repaired quickly here, with Highway 1 being the priority. So we hoped for the best, stocked up on gas/water/food, and headed South for Loreto. Below is the worst of what we drove through (this is near San Ignacio, where we almost stayed). I have a video of us driving through this, which I will try to upload later (sorry Mom).
DAY SEVEN: drive to La Paz. Probably my favorite city on this trip, although we barely saw it. The drive along Highway 1 is stunning. For anyone considering this drive, I would say do it! We did not feel unsafe or in danger at any point along our drive (with the exception of weather-related issues). Once we arrived in La Paz, we stayed at La Concha, which was right on the beach. We were so excited to be getting closer to our destination!
DAY EIGHT: finally arrived in Cabo (the day before I had to leave!) It was pretty surreal and sad being there actually….seeing all the destruction from the storm. In all, seven people died, and the storm brought 27 inches of rain in two days. Both Carly and I felt a little unsettled when we arrived. Her kitty Aura did the best out of all of us!
DAY NINE: Had to say goodbye to Mexico! It felt strange leaving when I just arrived. It was also sad to say goodbye to Carly after our time together. Wishing her the all best on her new adventure in Cabo! Hoping I will be back soon to visit 🙂
