Getting There Away


Santa Rosalía's small marina offers some possibilities for catching a ride by private yacht north or south along the gulf coast or across to mainland Mexico, but you'll likely have to hang around a while.

The journey is nine hours. The boat departs Guaymas on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 8pm.

Advanced reservations are recommended.

Autotransportes Aguila and ABC buses between Tijuana and La Paz stop at Santa Rosalía's bus terminal, on the western side of the Transpeninsular opposite the malecón. Approximate fares (they change regularly) are listed here. There's also one night bus to Mexicali (US$94, 14 to 16 hours).
