We think Los Barriles is one of the greatest pueblos in all of Baja California.
The people are kind and friendly, the area is beautiful and the slow-paced lifestyle is refreshing. To help you learn about the East Cape RV Resort and our area in general, we'll share with you some of our favorites as well as point out locations for the practical things you'll need during your stay.

Our welcome information is designed to acquaint you with the East Cape RV Resort and to the highlights of Los Barriles. Please see 'Visit Beautiful Los Barriles' for a wonderful list of Restaurants and Taquerias as well as a printable version for your reference. Enjoy!

The East Cape RV Resort was proud to be on the cutting edge by offering Mexico's first high-speed, wireless internet park 4 years ago!  With a Wifi-enabled computer, you can use and enjoy the internet from the comforts of your own RV.  We teamed up with "Tengo Internet" and prices are just $4 a day, $15 per week, $30 for two weeks, and $40 per month.  Staying a month?  That's only $1.30 per day for 24-hour access!  Just turn on your computer and follow the internet prompts or you can purchase your password at the office.

Bathrooms and Laundry
The bathrooms are in the pueblo-style building with the palapa roof next to the pool.  The men's are on the left, the women's on the right. Travelers tell us we have "The best bathrooms in the Baja!" Washers, dryer and drying patio are located on the west side behind the bamboo fence.  $1.50 to wash, $1.50 to dry and you need American quarters - available from Helen in the permanente Palapa Casita in the northwest corner of the park with the white doves. Laundry hours are 8 a.m. to dark. Please, no use outside these hours as a courtesy to guests in adjacent sites. Want someone else to do your laundry?  Isabel's "El Lavadera" is located 1 ½ blocks south on left.

The Beach
It's just a 1000 feet to the beach by turning left out of the park, walk 100 feet, turn right and the beautiful blue sea is straight ahead.

The Desert, Water & Electric Resource
The Baja peninsula is a natural desert. Water remains a precious commodity and is not always consistent in it’s delivery.  CFE, Mexico's Government owned Electric provider, does it's best, but on occasion it too can be inconsistent in its electric delivery and very expensive. Whenever possible, when it's warm outside, please open your windows, enjoy the fresh air and run only your fans.  We appreciate your being conscientious with your use of both water and electricity.

Money Exchange, ATM Machine
The new Banamex bank offers national exchange rate on funds and has an ATM. Baja Money Exchange is an eclectic store for ice cream, souvenirs, cigars, and money exchange just 300 feet to the south. There is also an ATM at the Palmas de Cortez hotel lobby.

Groceries
Chapito's Super Mercado is on the road coming into Los Barriles and they also have a farmacia.  The new grocery store 'Tienda Popular' is located across the street and slightly west of Tio Pablo's. Fayla's is closer but somewhat more expensive.  Fayla's offers videos and Friday is paper day - USA Today, LA Times and Wall Street Journal.  La Modelorama has cold beer, ice and is good for fast trips.  Beer bottles are redeemable, so don't throw them away. "Costco San Lucas" and Home Depot are 1 1/2 hours south and offer all the shopping joys and selections you'd expect at home. 

Rig Washing
Our Jardinero (Gardener) Martin, is our rig washer and does a fantastic job -$1.50 per foot for RV's. Cars- $7, Trucks - $14. Interior cleaning available on request. Due to the high cost of water, guests may not wash their own vehicles, with the exception of permanent residents who pay for water monthly.
