  1. I was the original partner with Dixon Collins and his wife Barbara in the development and construction of Hotel Punt Chivato.

    I worked with Andy and Dave Rice in the purchase and construction of Andy’s “CASINO”. We operated under a Mexican Corporation (Bearer Stock)in which Octovio Yano held in his Construction Co. I am 92 and have vivid accounts of those wild days.

    1. I am confused about your original ownership with Dixon Collins. I live at Punta Chivato, and I met with Octavio Yano (Llano) in 2019. We talked about the construction of the hotel, he did not mention you. Can you fill me in? Thanks, George

  2. I live at Punta Chivato, and edited the book “At the End of a Very Bad Road” about the history of Punta Chivato (published in 2018) by the Home Owners Association of Punta Chivato. I would like to get permission to use information on your website for inclusion in a new printing.
    Thank you.

  3. Fond memories………Since 1972 or about Every year Since 1975 …. …we never stayed at the hotel , Since we preferred isolation…..but camped on one of the little bays just north,,,,,, I believe we paid 5 dollars to camp and use the open air showers. My memory is scanty ,,,,, at that time a man named Bill , Kinda over saw the grounds,,,,he had a deer tied up near the showers.

    Like I say, I’m. Old now, And “ dingy” ,,,,we used to visit with another couple, Name. PATCHENs. They had house. Somewhere nearby. I know the husband, wrote a book about their canoe trip from San Felipe to …… I think , Loreto. A friend who lined in San Quintin. ….and I had planned on taking a “ memory” trip this month,,,,,but due to coven, And other complications , Guess I’m stuck. About 10 years. ago, I had a house in Todos Santos……wonderful place. My love there was to dive I had an Hawaiian Sling…. To catch our dinner with. My husband loved his dirt bike, We compromised. I live in Ramona calif now……will quite boring you,,, we did stay at hotel , on stormy nights, Also, the dinners were Fabulous!
