Bahía Asunción Welcomes the New Year with New Tourist-Friendly Services

Bahía Asunción says ‘Happy New Year’ by adding new tourist-friendly services to welcome visitors.

by Shari Bondy

First of all, we bid you Happy Happy New Year from Bahía Asunción.

We are very excited about all the new tourist-friendly services that will be offered in our village in 2013. Now that the road in is paved, tourism has increased, bringing a welcome boost to the local economy. Even the potholes are being repaired and new pavement laid between Vizcaino and the Asunción turn-off. The main market, Miramar, now even offers a bank machine for withdrawals from a bank card and exchanges dollars for pesos with a decent exchange rate.


Tourist-friendly services include a new Pemex gas station in Bahía Asunción.

There are several new projects on the books for this year including a new Pemex gas station which will be a big asset to the community to have cheaper, more reliable gas service. This is especially important as the region begins to fill up with tourists coming to see the whales, cave paintings, flora and fauna, and just to get away from it all!


Van service will offer a much-needed transportation method in Bahía Asunción.

Another excellent addition is a scheduled bus service to Vizcaino that will meet up with the buses that travel up and down the peninsula! The bus company Aguila has provided a beautiful new bus that will run twice a day on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturdays and Sundays, leaving here at 7 a.m and 3 p.m.,  and returning from Vizcaino after the buses come in from north and south at 10:30 a.m. and 8 p.m.   For 175 pesos (roughly $14) one way. It will be great to finally have that travel link.

Another welcomed addition will be a new restaurant-bar at the entrance to town. The construction is nearly complete and it looks spectacular. So our little village is growing…but don’t worry…it will always have that small town friendly feeling like old baja!


The La Bufadora Inn is a great place to stay in Bahía Asunción and Villa Bahia is a cool spot in Bahia de los Angeles.  Want to find out more about the region? is a comprehensive online source of first-hand travel information for the Baja California Peninsula, supported by a full-service tour operator staffed by Baja locals (our “Baja Travel Savants”).
