San Felipe Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see

San Felipe, Mexico is located about 130 miles south of the eastern California border in Northern Baja California on the Sea of Cortez. Originally primarily a fishing village, San Felipe is quickly becoming a retirement destination for Americans and Canadians.  For years, it has been a vacation destination and is also known as the home of the Fish Taco.

From September through May, the weather is mild and from mid-June to the beginning of August can reach temperatures of up to 115 degrees (it is considered to be a desert).

The roads from the United States and Ensenada to San Felipe are usually in good shape (potholes are constantly appearing, but the Mexican road team is dilligent in filling them - it seems to be a never ending process).  There is also excellent bus service from Tiajuana, Ensenada, or Mexicali to/from San Felipe.

Getting to San Felipe and staying there is safe and there are many activities: fishing, golfing, gazing at giant Sahuaro cacti, relaxing on the water, ATVing, riding sandrails, and more.

There are plenty of hotels and even a couple resort style locations. Restaurants are abundant and most are reasonably priced.
