If you are looking for an adventure on the road, a trip to Baja California, Mexico is exactly what you need.
Driving through the Baja is a rewarding and unforgettable experience.
Easy to reach, flying over San Diego, the best way to visit is by renting a car.
Travel the 3200km of the transpeninsular highway from the mythical border town of Tijuana to the most chic and popular with American tourists, Cabo San Lucas. What will be planned will be a journey in an inaccessible territory that will put a strain on the driver but which will offer the view of extraordinary landscapes along the entire route.
To the west the Pacific Ocean, to the east the wonderful Sea of Cortez and in the middle sun-baked deserts, fiery sunsets, cordon cactus forests, of infinite shapes and sizes, surreal-looking rocks, and anachronistic villages.
If you can take as much time as you can to visit Baja California, let yourself be gently drawn into the relaxed pace of life of the locals.
Discover some mythical towns of this peninsula, such as the sophisticated and eclectic Ensenada, an important wine center, renowned all over the world for sport fishing, as well as a favorite destination in the 1960s by Jim Morrison, who used to stop to sip tequila and observe the surfers. Descend along the desert to Guerrero Negro, a very important whale watching point, particularly in the nearby Laguna Ojo de Liebre.
Do not miss the village of San Ignacio, which with its lush and verdant setting contrasts with the desert landscape of the Desierto Vizcaino, almost reminiscent of a Saharan oasis. Continue on to Mulegè, which faces east on the beautiful Sea of Cortez, which with its palm trees and its mountains in the background is considered by many to be the most beautiful city in the whole bay. Spend the night in relaxed Loreto, a paradise for water sports.
Do not miss the city of La Paz which boasts one of the most beautiful spots to admire the sunset and embark on the Isla Espiritu Santo for an unforgettable snorkeling experience with sea lions.
Then continue to descend towards Todos Santos, an enchanting and sleepy town, famous for being the favorite destination of many VIPs made in the USA, and for having made them believe that it is the location where the famous Hotel California of the Eagles resided.
End your descent in festive Cabo San Lucas, the quintessence of fun for young Americans, or move to the more peaceful and relaxed San Jose del Cabo.
These are just some of the possibilities you will have during your trip. Baja will charm you and captivate you wherever you decide to go.
