Sitting about 200 miles south of the border, The Old Mill Hotel is located next to the fertile fishing grounds of Bahia San Quintin. The hotel was named for the wheat mill established by English colonists in the late 1800's. In the late 1940's the location became a fishing cannery which led to the need for a hotel. The large mill and hotel remain but now accompanied by an excellent restaurant, Eucalipto.
The climate in the San Quintin area is mild with temperatures rarely go above 85F during the summer months. The fishing is world class and the bay is a bird sanctuary where hundreds of species migrate through each year.
For the fishing enthusiast you can find yellow-tail, yellow fin, dorado, bonita, shark, halibut, rock cod, black sea bass and more, in the waters off the Baja. San Martin Island and Ben’s Rock are two popular destinations off of coast. There is a launch ramp on the premises at no charge. Pangas (boats) and cruisers are available from area sportfishing businesses. The prices vary depending on the size of the boat. A fishing license is required of all persons on a boat.
There is excellent goose (Black Brandt) and duck hunting on the bay. Season: Nov 16-Feb 28. Hunting is allowed only on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Pangas and guides are available in the area and of course gun permits and hunting licenses are required.
Besides fishing and hunting, there are opportunities for sight-seeing, taking photos, bird watching (the bay is a bird sanctuary where over 168 species winter each year), visiting an oyster farm in nearby Bahia Falsa, claming, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, riding your all-terrain vehicle, swimming, reading, sun bathing, and just plain relaxing in the peaceful environment. We have ample parking for your car, boat, rv, or atv in our security gaurded lot. There are a number of very good restaurants nearby with very reasonable prices.
