Jacumba Hot Springs

0

I really really wanted to get answers to the De Anza story – did the woman that purchased the town of Jacumba with a handshake at an auction also buy DeAnza hot springs?

I was intrigued.

Did the DeAnza nudist park come with the sale or no?

I drove from Seattle to the Mexico border to find out.
(Yes, I was THAT intrigued.)

I emailed her and her email bounced back. I hunted her down on Instagram and DM’d her. Twice.

With no response, I drove my ass over to Jacumba Hot Springs to see if I might be able to bump into her.

Yes, it’s that kind of town. Not even a traffic light.  Bizarre, I know.

It was pretty easy to walk down Main Street and get her attention. And sure as shit, I walked over to the Jacumba hotel and she happened to be outside and came over for a quick chat.

The entire town is just absolutely fascinating. It’s a photographer’s dream. A Marfa waiting in the middle of the desert.

I have no doubt this interior designer from San Diego will restore this town to its original charm. It is the cutest fucking little town in the middle of nowhere. And it’s absolutely gorgeous.

She knew exactly what she was doing and I wish her all the success. The new Jacumba Hot Springs Hotel + Restaurant should be open in August. You can bet I’ll show up the same way I did to La Copine in Yucca Valley. Thirsty for culture in the middle of the desert.


Ciao for now!

ps. Here is a little video I did of the town:
