At Colonet the main highway from Ensenada finally hits the ocean. From here to El Rosario, the beaches stretch for miles.


Mexican officials are eyeing Punta Colonet, about 80 miles south of Ensenada, as a major container port. While the plan would take years to fully develop, requiring significant public and private investment, its construction would have serious implications on the Port of L.A., according to the report.

The sprawling Baja California beach has the potential to become a major player in maritime trade, with 3,000 acres of backland off the beach and another 8,000 acres on an adjacent mesa, plus the all-important deep waters able to handle next-generation vessels.

Currently, the miniscule ejido is not geared for tourism, neither domestic nor international, and remains a natural setting.

Get in[edit]

Colonet is located off the main transpeninsular highway 1, which passes through larger inhabited areas of Vicente Guerrero and Camalu. The entire region is to split off from Ensenada Municipality in 2016, which will host about 100,000 people. Despite its southern location, weather in Colonet is not any warmer than Ensenada, Tijuana, or San Diego, as the cold pacific current dominates.

By bus[edit]

Colonet is a stop off the main highway, Autotransportes de la Baja California [1] serves Colonet, but service may be infrequent, inquire ahead of time. There are also plenty of stops at towns and ejidos along the highway.
