Puerto Nuevo is alive
Puerto Nuevo is not shuttered, k48 is still a popular break and gets a fair share of surfers looking for cheap grub. It's no longer hugely popular with gringos because the lobster's are pathetically small these days. I opt for the killer baja style fish tacos...I too miss the longosta a la plancha con mojo de ajo!!!
A bit further south, I know several very successful shrimp, clam and abalone farms. They are responsible farmers/fishermen and it provides a glimmer of hope.
The Baja Norte area is controlled by one Cartel, it's been relatively mellow. I am not looking to argue safety, but I still visit the area often and have not heard of any gringos getting whacked. TJ is down right calm, Ave. Revolucion got a face lift and the Marines can no longer party there.
Valle de Guadalupe and Califa are Baja's wine country, a short drive form Ensenada. It's a ton of fun and good food. I won't write the area off so easily.
