Baja California is that 1300 kilometer long arm that dangles down from the US border between the Pacific and the Gulf of California. The whole of the peninsula consists of rugged and nearly uninhabited mountains.

The desert landscape is fascinating and the scenery is extremely beautiful. Most travelers find Baja a magical place of blue skies, fresh air and solitude. A great get away form the crazy land of California.

Tijuana, a city with a population of over 1 million is located on the Pacific and is the most important border crossing. The San Ysidro/ Tijuana crossing is the busiest border crossing in the world. The town boomed in the 1920s when hollywood stars came here for a drink and, if willing to put up with hordes of drunk American college students on weekends, it is still a great place for nightlife. Try stopping by at some of the grills of the side of the highway where they will serve up the best of  fresh fish tacos.

Ensenada is the third city of Baja and is a leading seaport. It is a great city, beautiful and fully equiped to serve tourists and travelers.

La Paz is the capital of Baja California Sur. It is a fast growing city, but still a quite relaxed place to stay. It is an excellent base for exploring the south end of the peninsula. Cabo san lucas is a big resort with many tourist facilities in the south.
