ACTIVITIES - Eds World

Ed's World is Out of This World in Mulegé
by Stockton Hill

Ed's World (Ecomundo de Eduardo) is a place we've all dreamed about at one time or another, a place where every day is a holiday and the location is paradise. A place where the days are spent on the Sea of Cortez—fishing, kayaking, snorkeling or just relaxing. Fortunately Ed's World is not exclusive, as a matter of fact, Ed and his friends want to share their world with you.

Fortunately, Ed's World is not some distant planet, but rather at the end of a rock-walled cove on a sandy beach under a palm frond palapa looking out at islands just off shore. Eighteen miles south of Mulegé at KM 108 on HWY 1 at el Burro Beach at the far south end of the cove, in Palapa #7

Ed left life as a commercial fisherman in central California, traveled the Baja peninsula and fell in love with this little fishing village of Mulegé, deciding to use his knowledge of the sea in the waters surrounding the beaches and islands of the Bay of Concepcion, building a water sports business.

Ed's amigo's, Jaime Higuera Meza and Sandra Kays, make up the rest of the World team.

Jaime is a native of Mulegé, comes from a family of fisherman making a living in the Sea of Cortez, keeping it all real after pairing up with gringo friends with a dream.

Sandra and her husband have been resident sunbums living on the beach for the past 15 years. Her love of the Mexican people, language and customs, affords her the opportunity to promote Mulegé. They have survived two hurricane seasons, losing an entire house to the flooding in 2009, living real adventure!

Two years ago they went into business and have since built a solid business on word of mouth and their reputation. They couldn't love what they do any more. "We walk out our door and squish our toes in the sand right in front of the sea every morning and meet people on holiday from all over the world", says Sandra.

Mulegé is a popular destination and stopover for Baja adventurers, traveling to or from various exotic locales. Ed's World offers these adventurous types new experiences to add to the memories of their journeys.

Today they offer state-of-the-art kayaks, sportfishing charters, boogie boards, paddleboats, and waterskiing and tow-ins on tubes. Kayak or take a boat ride to an island where you can sleep in a cave and swim in luminescent waters in the moonlight under the stars. In the near future they will have palapa bungalow rooms overlooking the sea for overnight camping.
