I have a few tips for you!
Cataviña is a great place to stop in Baja - It is surrounded by some fascinating country, the Desierto Central de Baja California, Baja's unique Central Desert. Much of the desert is under legal protection, to preserve its biological treasures. Hundreds of species of cactus live here, many of them found nowhere else.
The Mission in Loreto is a must see! As are the cave paintings in Loreto.
Right after Loreto before you cross over to Constitucion and Insurgentes there are two little coves...I can't find the names of them though, but you can't miss them...they have little palapas on both beaches where you can enjoy a lovely lunch of chocolate clams right out of the water for lunch
Also there's the church built by Eiffel in Santa Rosalia...it's pretty cool. The area where the highway passes the town looks pretty rustic, but once you turn to go downtown it's very cute.

It depends how far south you are traveling. 50kms southnof crossing the border you have the best lobster with beans. Enjoy with a white wine from the region.
Ensenada: Visit the best wine country in Mexico @ valle de guadalupe (30kms east of Ensenada). Stay at a B&B. In Ensenada stop for fish tacos. The best are at the corner of 5th street and Espinoza. Go to Hussong's cantina. Visit the Riviera convention center. There is a samall museum of Baja there. Go south to La Bufadora (32kms from Ensenada).
Travel south to San Quintin and enjoy big chocolata clams coktail. Going to El Rosario stop at the National Dinosaurius Park where there is a fossil forest.
If you want beaches, east of Ensenada is San Felipe. Just ate the begining of the Sea of Cortez. Want forests? Sierra de San Pedro Martir at the middle of the peninsula. Devil's pesk is the highest mountain in Baja where you can see both seas....
Many and safe trips. Just expext some friendly military chechpoints. Nothing to worry about.
Again, how far you are going? Baja is larger that Italy!! over 5 years ago
