Ciudad Insurgentes

Ciudad Insurgentes, located in the municipality of Comondú in Baja California Sur, Mexico, is a small yet vibrant town that plays a significant role in the region’s agricultural sector. Situated along the Transpeninsular Highway, Ciudad Insurgentes serves as a key junction connecting various parts of the peninsula.

Turn left to continue south toward La Paz or turn right to check out Ciudad Insurgentes or to take the paved road to San Juanico or a side trip to Puerto Adolfo Lopez Mateo to go whale watching. 

Ciudad Insurgentes got its name in honor of the Mexican insurgents, the heroes of the country’s War of Independence from Spanish rule, which lasted from 1810 to 1821. The term “insurgentes” refers to the fighters who rose up against colonial authorities in the pursuit of Mexico’s sovereignty. 

The town’s economy is predominantly based on agriculture, with vast fields dedicated to crops such as tomatoes, chilies, and grains. Its strategic location also makes it an essential hub for the distribution of agricultural products throughout the state and beyond.
