My first visit to Los Barriles was in 1979. I rented a motor home hooked up my 24’ Skipjack sportfisher and headed from Coronado, CA to points unknown with my my wife Terri, & 2 kids who were 4 & 2. We had no itinerary and 3 months to kill so off we went for an adventure that would change our lives forever.
First stop, Mulege 7.5 hours north of Los Barriles. Stayed for a week, fished, played, and had fun in Bahia Conception. Next stop Loreto area specificaly Puerto Escondido. Stayed 4 days and off we went (not impressed). Next stop La Paz gross, just a big city no charm.
Next stop Los Barriles. We looked at each other and said this is it. Heaven on earth! Found a camp spot right on the beach at the now famous Martin Verdugos Motel & Camping resort. We never moved another inch. We came back every year until 1992 when we were on our way down driving with our last load of building materials to finish our new home when a bus hit our utility trailer causing us to jackknife and roll over. The accident resulted in a spinal cord injury for me and just 3 stitches for my wife. Since then, as a Qudrapeligic, designer and builder, I have finished 12 luxury high-end homes including our newest casa and guest Villa, “VillaTranquillo”.
We welcome you to our “Little slice of heaven” and hope you find it as magical as we do!
In 2007 I started Los Cabos Adventures which is a sportfishing and whale watching charter corporation. We have designed and custom outfitted mexico's only completely wheelchair accessible sportfisher.
We now live in the main Villa from October through May. Spending the summer in the high sierras north of Truckee, CA.
My kids are now 33 and 35. We now have 4 grandchildren so the love of Los Barilles will continue through out our next generations.
Larry Cooper purchased this villa in 2006
When I could finally afford to invest in Los Barriles in 1989 I purchased the last 2 beach front lots in the Village of Los Barriles. I knew I wanted to be in town and not north of the 2 big Arroyos due to flooding during hurricane season. The properties up north were way cheaper for a reason, plus the beaches north were all rocks. We completed our first home in 1993 then sold it in 2004 because the house was huge and the kids and grandkids were busy with there lives and no one was coming down. So we designed the 'Guest Villa' just for us. Its all we needed. 3/4's to completion, both of our adult kids started whining about having to camp on the property in a trailer. So prior to completion, we quickly designed the main house and got it going as well. The whole project, including landscaping, was done in 18 months!
To us its not just a house or a home but a work of art.
Hope you feel the same.
We disigned this new Villa with our lifestyle in mind. We loved eating outdoors so we put the master suite on the water and the other bedrooms to the back so we would have room for a giant outdoor 'Palapa Great Room'. We stratigically placed it on the south side of the main Villa so as to be protected from the winter north winds. Now we can enjoy outdoor living all year round.
Our stay at Larry's house was truly amazing! The two bedroom, two bath Casita was fabulous. Sunrise/ sunset beachside. Walking distance to everything, so no need for a car. Lovely Palapa over looking water, kite surfing and Grey whales. Enjoyed the cows strolling in the streets, leatherback turtle release and of course windsurfing/ kitesurfing and SUP. Oh, I wouldn't want to for get Chi Chi ( Larry's dog) cutest dog ever. See you Christmas 2015.
we stayed at Larry's place with another couple and the set up was perfect. Even though it is wheelchair accessible, it doesn't take away from the lovely design and decor at all. The Kitchen has all you need for cooking (although we enjoyed the restaurants in town instead), and the whole place was spotless upon our arrival. We all loved having our host Larry right on property, as he was not only a blast to get to know, but a wealth of information for the area. He arranged for a home cooked meal with Norma and her daughter (fabulous), along with shuttles to Santiago and the airport. Would definitely recommend to anyone, especially those who want to be walking distance to town. Gracias, Larry, we'll be back!
We booked this trip largely based on the fact that the property and boat were wheel chair accessible. When we arrived at the property we were blown away by the beautiful condition of the property which is right on the beach with amazing views. Everything was Wheel chair accessible and close enough to stroll to the restaurants and bars. Our two sons ages 18 and 22 along with one girlfriend and another couple joined us and everyone kept busy with plenty of activities. We all had fun on the Quads. we enjoyed 2 days on Larry's boat, Josh did a superb job of assisting my husband on and off the boat and getting the fishing going. Larry was a great host from arranging our transport to and from the airport to recommending restaurants and giving pointers on Margarita making. I can't describe How Beautiful it was to sit on the patio in the morning with my coffee and watch the sun come up,,only to be rivaled by sitting in the same spot at night with a Margarita watching the sun go down. We are currently working on picking our date for next year,,,which will be longer than 7 days. Josh and his wife do an amazing job !
Four nights in this Casita was not enough. Amazing location, scenic and comfortable. The AC was a welcome treat upon our return from fishing. Josh and his wife take wonderful care of the property and those who stay there. We definitely would stay here again.
I loved the property! It is beautiful and I felt at home immediately. The views, the sunrise, the beach, the small town, the food ...ok ok I know I loved everything! Driving the quad was a blast. The beach bars were fun to drive up and swim in the pool ---then have a piña colada. Fishing is excellent.
We rented Larry's beautiful home for 10 days. The pictures did not do the home justice. It is beautiful, clean and has everything you could want. You can get up in the morning and watch the sun rise over the sea of cortez, Fish and relax during the day. Larry is an awesome host. He arranged for dinner to be cooked for us and I honestly can not say which I enjoyed most the wonderful meal or the leftovers. Now on to Paco and Josh. They are wonderful always friendly and helpful . You will not regret renting this home we will definitely be back
Not really known as a tourist destination, Los Barriles is more of a state of mind, the way you would think Mexico was back in the day, a friendly, family, Village type atmosphere. We do have our bars and nightclubs but most everything focuses around the amazingly beautiful Sea of Cortez and the incredible adventures it has to offer.
Big game fishing for giant Black, Blue and Striped Marlin, record breaking Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Swordfish, Dorado, and the inshore giant Roosterfish. Fishing is year round but the best months are April-November leaving the winter months to the Windsurfers and Kiteboarders. All in all, Los Barriles and the Sea of Cortez is a year-round adventure playground.
Some must do’s:
Take a whale watching bay cruise to Bahia de Los Suenos (Bay of Dreams), or Ceralvo Island, for a picnic and snorkeling aboard the sport fishing yacht ‘En Caliente”
Charter the “En Caliente for an unforgettable sport fishing experience. Last November I caught a 555lb Black Marlin!
Use our free ATV’s to explore distant beaches and tide-pools. Take our guided tours to painted caves, and waterfalls in the middle of the desert. “Truly amazing!
Surf fish, snorkel, swim, sunbathe, or just kick back on the beautiful white sand beach in front of the Villa.
