So much adventure is waiting for you…
The Baja California Peninsula stretches southward from the U.S. border for nearly 800 miles. The deep blue Pacific Ocean surrounds it on the west and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of California on the east.
Along Baja’s 2,000+ miles of coast are deserted coves with pristine beaches and picturesque fishing villages. At the southern tip of Baja, at Cabo San Lucas, the Pacific and the Gulf of California meet. Rugged mountains go down the spine of the peninsula, creating some of the most ruggedly beautiful riding spots in the world.
The Baja climate varies from the cool climate similar to Southern California in the northwest, semi-arid mountainous regions in the interior, and semi-tropical areas along the southeastern coast. Baja is geographically isolated from the rest of Mexico which graces the area with unique varieties of plants found no place else on earth.
The giant cordón cacti, cirio, and date palms that the Jesuits planted in the 17th century, and the mangrove thickets are just a few of the varieties found in Baja. The temperature can vary from summer highs topping 100°F to balmy winter temperatures in the seventies and eighties.
The ideal time to travel in Baja is from late September to mid-June.
