If you arrive by bus, you will be dropped off at the entrance to town. From there, you can walk the few blocks downhill and east into town, or take a taxi. Taxis also line up around the plaza and usually charge around $2.50 to $6 for a trip anywhere in town.

Visitor Information

There is no official office, but tourist information is available at the office of the centrally located Hotel Las Casitas, Calle Francisco Madero 50 (tel. 615/153-0019). Several maps that list key attractions, as well as a local biweekly English-language newspaper, the Mulegé Post, are available throughout town.

City Layout

Mulegé has an essentially east-west orientation, running from the Carretera Transpeninsular in the west to the Sea of Cortez. The Mulegé River (also known as Río Santa Rosalía) borders the town to the south, with a few hotels and RV parks along its southern shore. It's easy to find the principal sights downtown, where two main streets will take you either east or west; both border the central plaza. The main church is several blocks east of the plaza, breaking with the traditional layout of most Mexican towns. The Bahía Concepción is 11km (6 3/4 miles) south.
