      Ciudad Insurgentes is located 12 miles north of Ciudad Constitucion on the Baja Blacktop. This is where the north road from Loreto makes a sharp turn south headed for La Paz. The town has a population of a few thousand people, most of who are involved in agriculture. The main street running through town is called Benito Juarez and Pemex gas (station #1709) is on the west side of the street mid-block (air, water and bathrooms available). The gas station is set up for a one way entrance...slip in from the north. A long distance telephone store (open 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and then from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.) is located on the east side of the street. The two decent sized markets mid-town are Mini Super Baja Sin (east side) and Super Mar Marcado Market (west side). If you have been on the road in Baja for a long time the young checkout girls at these markets look pretty cute! Hungry or want to take some food on the road to go? El Pollo Real is located on the east side of the street near the statues in the middle of the road at Avenida Hidalgo.


      Baja travelers looking for a quick bite to eat will find plenty of easy parking and good food at the Pollo Real across the street from the Pemex station on the east side of the street. If you order the "Pollo Entero" they will give you the full bird plus french fries, tons of tortillas and a small plastic bag of some pretty tasty salsa.

      For more information on the area north of Ciudad Insurgentes check out the SAN JUANICO section of Baja Expo.



      If you are headed north from Cuidad Insurgentes to La Parisima, San Juanico or Laguna Ignacio this is probably the best place to get gas. The Pemex station is on the west side of the street, mid town. It also has an air station for filling your tires....and bathrooms!



      Like it's larger brother Ciudad Constitucion 5 miles south, Ciudad Insurgentes is not a tourist town. Gringos are more prevalent during the whale watching season from January through March and during the summer months as they head north to San Juanico. But the main Gringo roll of Ciudad Insurgenetes is gasoline and a place to grab food and drinks for the drive north.



      Hand's down the best open-spit chicken within a hundred miles is the Pollo Real on the east side of the street, across from the Pemex station. Try the "Pollo Entero"...that the whole bird with tortillas, freedom fries and a plastic bag of delicious salsa. Throw in a cold cervesa and you have died and gone to heaven!



      One of the best places in the world to go whale watching is just 30 minutes north and west of Ciudad Insurgentes in Puerto Morelos. The whales hang out here from January through March to play, mate, and watch the tourists watch them. It's an amazing thing to experience, especially in the heat of the season in mid-February. Bring a camera! For more information visit the WHALE WATCHING section of Baja Expo.
