I was just stuck here for about a week waiting on the weather. The local fuel guy there is a pirate. He is the only game in town, and now charges $8.00 usd per gallon!! At least double what would be a fair price considering the location. You have been warned!

Cheers, Bill

What do you base that on? Have you ever tried getting there by land? It's about 4 bucks in Cabo at land stations.

You're right, Gordo is a crook. Avoid using him at all costs. There used to be two fuel concessions there. The other guy, Ruben died a few years back of the flu. He was an honest and ethical guy. A true loss to the boating (and local) community.
