Catering services are available from Francesca. She is an amazing cook and provides in-home catering services. She will prepare whatever you desire; everything from traditional Mexican fare to exquisite steak, seafood, shrimp and lobster dinners. Dinners can include a crisp green salad and vegetables.

Although you can order whatever you wish, a breakfast can include fresh tropical fruit, fresh squeezed orange and/or grapefruit juice, eggs with bacon or chorizo, toast or tortillas and refried beans.

She also prepares a variety of appetizers including empanadas, ceviche, and guacamole with homemade tortilla chips.  Lunch is also available but seldom requested as the dinners are so plentiful that they usually provide leftovers for lunch the next day.

As of the date of this posting, dinners cost $18 per person and breakfast is $13 per person plus the current 16% sales tax.

Fishing Boat (25’ Super Panga)

The Casa has its own fishing boat the Pesca Alert.  If you plan to fish the Sea of Cortez during your visit, full access and use of the panga with Mino as your boat captain, fishing gear and fuel is available at a rate of $250 US per day for fishing and eco-touring, and/or $50 US per hour for shorter use of the boat.

One of our recent guests caught a 13-foot long, 600+ pound black marlin from the beautiful Sea of Cortez, right off Punta Pescadero.

If you think you might want to use the boat give Wolf Property Management your credit card information.  They send it to us and we will keep it on file and charge for your use of the boat at the end of your rental.

Also, when you go fishing, Mino will often start the day by picking up live bait.  The cost of bait is usually about $20 cash

Wolf Property Management will be able to pick up fishing licenses for you with a days notice.

Chase whales in the Spring. There is a living reef a short walk down the beach where the snorkeling is excellent.  We have kayaked amongst thousands of manta rays.

Shuffle Board

In shuffleboard, the player uses a stick (tang), to push disks (biscuits), placing the disk within the scoring zone at the far end of the court (sending the biscuit). If the biscuit lands completely within the small triangular tip zone without touching any part of the borders, it is worth ten points; completely within the trapezoidal second tier of the triangle, it is worth eight points; and completely within the trapezoidal third tier of the triangle, seven points. If the biscuit lands in the large, rearmost and also trapezoidal '10 Off' section, it costs minus ten points.

Shuffleboard is played in matches of ten frames (a frame is both players or teams taking their turns). The basic strategy involves deflecting the opposition's biscuits out of zones with a positive value, and increasing one's own points by landing disks into areas of a high point value. A note of caution, youth is not an advantage in this game.
