Hola amigos! I see very little activity on this app for Baja California Mexico. I’m been exploring the backroads off Baja for 30+ years and I’m a gringa. If anyone has questions feel free to ask me. I’ll be posting some adventure routes soon. Baja is completely different than mainland Mexico. Adios

Hi Betty, I’m just getting into overlanding (selling my Tesla and getting either a forester or Crosstrek). I surf quite a bit and want to explore taking some trips down to Baja. Do you have any tips for getting started, or more surf oriented trips?

Hola sorry I just saw this! Yes lots of places to surf on the Pacific side. U may have already researched good spots. Lookup Cuatro Casas Hostel. Can camp right in front on cliff overlooking Pacific. Do not just camp anywhere on coast or by yourself. I have a Subi crosstrek & a gen3 4Runner. I led a trip last week south for 3nights it was a blast.

San Miguel playa in El Sausalito is a ok beach for surfing too. If taking a Subi south have a good spare not that little donut tire, Be fully self contained for traveling in Baja. Ru going to either of the Overland Expos? I’ll be at both Loveland & Flagstaff.

Well I can assist for sure. Are you going to Overland Expo in Colorado or Flagstaff? I'll be presenting at both events so we could chat.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend either. I can DM you here with some questions, or if you would prefer to DM me better contact info (email or phone#) if that is more efficient for you.

Hola Betty. We are starting to make plans to travel the west coast of Baja down to Cabo and then back up the Cortez side. About 2-2 1/2 weeks. Driving my Land Rover Defender with wife and two teenagers. Thoughts, suggestions and advice appreciated...

Hey Ken

Wow there's alot to talk about. Planning on camping the entire trip or combo of camping and "other"? Other in Baja could be hostels, airbnb or hotels. My favs are hostels and airbnb - great value and we get to meet other travelers and find out about their adventures.

What specifically do you, wife & kids want to see or do?
Which month or apprx dates of travel? That may determine your route. Elevation-weather-season - it all depends on time of year. Did you know it snows in Baja?

Start learning basic Spanish now - Duolingo app is excellent. Need to know how to order food, directions, reservations....etc. easy peasy.

We may need to talk on the phone
