Banks -- This little town nearly made it a decade into the 21st century without having its own bank. Luckily, cash-strapped visitors can now visit the Bancomer on Zaragoza between Martínez and Madero.

Beach Safety -- Beaches in the area are generally tranquil and safe for swimming. The more protected waters of Bahía Concepción are especially calm. Avoid swimming at the mouth of the Mulegé River, which is said to be polluted.

Parking -- Street parking is generally easy to find in the downtown area. Note, however, that Mulegé's streets are very narrow and difficult for RVs and other large vehicles to navigate. Also, many streets are one-way.

Pharmacy -- Farmacia Ruben, Calle Francisco Madero s/n, at the northwest corner of the central plaza (no phone), is a small drugstore with a sampling of basic necessities and medicines. The owner speaks some English. Across the plaza, Supermercado Alba (no phone) has a somewhat wider selection of other goods and toiletries. Both are open Monday through Saturday from 9am to 7pm.
