Los Frailes is a secluded beach community located on the EastCape, just six miles south of Cabo Pulmo. This community consists of approximately a dozen custom homes, airstrip and employee camp. This is REMOTE Baja at its best….fabulous ocean, uncrowded sandy beaches, crashing surf and gorgeous
It is necessary to rent a car at the airport as there is no public transportation available to Los Frailes. After picking up a rental car, we recommend purchasing groceries at Soriana’s Mexican market just a couple of miles south of the airport on the right side of the highway. Soriana is a large supermarket chain with good selection and prices. The nearest markets to Los Frailes are 40 minutes away in La Ribera and small with limited selection. The drive to Los Frailes is approximately 90 minutes and the last 12 miles are dirt road and can be rough (washboard) if not recently graded. It is best to travel during daylight hours because some of the road is open range and it is not uncommon to encounter cattle and horses on the roadway.
There are two principal routes to Los Frailes from the airport. Route 1 goes north on Highway 1 toward La Paz. Continue north for 51 km then turn right (East) toward La Ribera. ** La Ribera will be your last chance to top up gas tanks. Turn right again after the OXXO convenience store and continue following signs to Cabo Pulmo. Los Frailes is 8 km south of Cabo Pulmo. This trip takes approximately 1 hr 40 min on mostly paved roads. (last 19 km dirt road)
A second and more direct, scenic and adventurous route is to take the toll road from the airport heading toward San Jose and exit at the major intersection. Here you will see two major supermarkets ( "La Comer" & "Chedrauri") where you can purchase supplies before proceeding toward Puerto Los Cabos and the coast road. Once you leave the pavement turn left on the coast road heading north toward Los Frailes. 58 km to go. You will pass a number of beautiful surf beaches i.e. Shipwrecks, Nine Palms etc and you will see a small hotel named "VidaSoul" in Vinorama. 25 km straight ahead lies Los Frailes.
* In addition to four restaurants in Cabo Pulmo, there is a local woman in Los Frailes who can cook authentic Mexican dinners and do laundry for a fee. Cash only. Contact manager upon arrival if interested.
Another option for traveling to Los Frailes is air charter. For approximately $500, up to 5 passengers can fly round trip to Los Frailes. This fee is per roundtrip and is not based on number of passengers. Flight time is approximately 10 minutes in a Cessna Turbo 206 and is subject to availability. Ask for details if interested.
