Gonzaga is epic and there are some cool places along the way. Last I was there, May, the paved road went 7 miles past Puertocitos so that leaves like 60 miles of dirt. It's a darn good road but will give you some teeth rattle after a bit but there are some cool bays to check out on the way.
I'm not the full Gonzaga expert but I know it is hot there now but if it cools down you can hike up the old trail that the Jesuits used to access the Mission up near Santa Ynez (Catavinia). Lots of talk about making this friendly on dirt bikes but doubt it anytime soon.
My Dad is always talking Papa Fernandez! John Wayne's favorite!when in Gonzaga Bay i always stop for some grub at Papa Fernandez's (the turns a couple miles north of the Alponsinas turn)
if it was good enough for John Wayne it's good enough for me. (check out the pics in the restaurant) if you feel like camping
Campo Beluga a mile south of Alponsinas rents palapas and has flush toilets and showers....
i second the dont ride on the runway and raise you a dont ride down the beach from alfonsinas to the 270/90 runway...This is one of the coolest overnight trips you can do and it comes out to Hwy 1 to head North towards home (Of course after you stop and say hello to Coco).The market across from the Pemex in Gonzaga also carries gas, welds and will fix flats, rent tools etc... the market has a great supply of food, beer and hard alcohol as well as souviners,they welcome offroaders as well as Alfonsinas. Please drive slow and respect the locals and dont drive on the airport runway. Pleanty of places to stop and camp beachside along the way, but stoping for a meal & room and enjoying the area is the best idea.
