Beauty, peace and quiet, and fishing in front of the house!
Quiet and peaceful, easy walk to the beach with a cup of coffee in hand for waking up in the morning. Great fishing for those days you want some topnotch action. Close to Cabo San Lucas and La Paz.
Gary was reading one of his favorite magazines, the Western Outdoors News, when he came across an article about the East Cape and the great fishing that was going on down there.
Bill Karr, who had written the article, also mentioned that he had a home there and could line up all the right people to ensure us a great time at the East Cape.
Well, it was our first time to Los Barrilles and we were looking forward to getting away and trying our hands at hooking a golden dorado. I have to admit I was a little concerned about not staying at a hotel. I didn’t know for sure how our accommodations would be, and I knew if the accommodations weren’t good it could make for a long stay.
Needless to say, we couldn’t have been happier with Casabelle-- she is a great place to spend some time and it was fully loaded with all the comforts of home, especially the great air conditioning, which was a big concern for me. The house was in a great location near a hotel that was ready at all times to serve you at the end of your day, not to mention you could walk to the beach.
In fact, that’s where fishing guide Manuel Lucero of Tio Pablo Sportfishing picked us up. We were able to walk to the beach and Manuel had a panga waiting for us and he would be our captain for a half day trip.
We hadn’t fished out in the open sea before, so we only wanted a half day. And to be honest, I was looking forward to a relaxing day. But, it couldn’t have been more than 20 minutes and something was hooked. Gary and I weren’t sure what it was--we just assumed it was a dorado and we were excited. It happened so quickly, I figured we might be home sooner now. But that thought was quickly gone when we saw something JUMP!
I didn’t know what it was, but Manuel yelled out “marlin!” Then the work began. By the time Gary reeled that marlin in, it had been over 2 hours. I can’t tell you how exciting it was to see Gary battle that marlin and to finally get him into the boat. It’s something I will always remember.
It was such a great time there in Los Barrilles, and in our home-away-from-home, Casabelle.
We stayed at Casabelle for a lovely month in Dec/Jan 2014/2015. The house is quite comfortable, with two full sized bedrooms and another that we used as an office (though it has three trundle beds). The neighborhood is very friendly, with lots of nice folks (head down to the Hotel bar for cards most days at 4!) -- it is a few blocks walk to the beach with beaches that stretch for miles in either direction, almost completely deserted. Spa Buena Vista is nice if you like being outside of the hustle and bustle of Los Barriles, but can still get there quickly for restaurants, grocery stores, and so on. We liked it so much, we are going back later this year ...
