The Baja peninsula is a land strip of over 1000 km where you can get in touch with nature, relax, and learn. Why? Because it has deserts, two coast lines, a huge mountain range, and drop dead beaches.

There is soft sand and beautiful waves! It's the best place to go if you live on or near the Mexican border and don't want to drive too much!

Pretty close to border city, you can spend a good day catching waves at this beach, and then go back to Tijuana and let the party begin!

This is a drop-dead beautiful natural reserve island.

Here you can find bays that are ideal for kayaking and camping. You can also admire seal colonies and rock formations such as The Arc or the Mask. You can go there and find the best fishing in La Paz!

To get here, you have to go to the Tecolote Beach and rent a boat that might take you there or have the concierge at the RCI resort book a day trip for you.
