The magnificent Baja California peninsula is divided into the two states of Baja California and Baja California Sur - north and south. It includes the resort areas of Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada, La Paz, Loreto, Rosarito, San Felipe, San Jose Del Cabo, and Buena Vista - to name a few of the larger ones.
It also boasts of major, modern cities such as Tijuana and Mexicali, along with hidden gems such as Bahia De Los Angeles, East Cape, Mulege San Ignacio, San Quintin, and Todos Santos.
This unique region is one of the most interesting and diverse geographical areas of the world and is still very much a frontier. The peninsula is home to some of the earth's most beautiful deserts, along with semi-tropical and mountainous regions, pine forests, and hundreds of miles of untouched beaches and coastline.
Most people of mainland Mexico consider it a far off place, much in the way Americans would think of Alaska... distant, mystical, harsh and beautiful. Although a frontier, it is a popular destination for travelers, especially those from all over North America seeking warm weather in the winter months.
