Mike's Sky Ranch is located about 20 miles off the highway (Mex 3 - Ensenada to San Felipe Mile 83.9) on a less traveled but graded road (Call from US: 011-52-664-681-5514). There are no telephone poles out here, or even electricity wired this far out, so the small ranch uses a generator every night from sunset until bedtime: 10pm when the view of the stars is not hindered by lights and the view is incredible ... in-the-sky.org Astronomical Calendar.
