Just 3 miles west of Hwy. 1 (between Km. 47 and 48) is the dramatic coast and future sea food restaurant!

It is 6 miles north (of El Rosario) on Hwy. 1 to the La Lobera road, between Km. 47 and 48. Note the branch power lines going over the highway to La Lobera facility at the turnoff. It is 3 miles to the coast at La Lobera. A day use fee of 30 pesos per vehicle is collected when you arrive.
It is a rugged and beautiful coast, well worth the time to visit. The facility is a sea food cultivation plant that raises abalone, lobsters, and other yummy treats. The original plan was to have a restaurant in the first building, upstairs. A commercial kitchen was installed. Sadly, the drop in tourism and perhaps the failure of the Diamante del Mar project (that was ‘next door’) prevented the opening.

In 2016, the facility was abandoned! I would learn that happened not long before our visit in September 2016. Apparently, the heavy surf kept dislodging the seawater intake which was mandatory for oxygen and nutrition for the shellfish being raised here. Obviously, the failure of the nearby Diamante del Mar golf course and housing project to get started meant fewer potential customers. I am very sorry for Adrian Santana who had a wonderful dream of the freshest seafood restaurant and satisfied customers.
