 Baja California at a Glance

 Located on the Baja peninsula, the state of Baja California lies between the Gulf of California and the Pacific Ocean and borders the U.S. state of California to the North. This stunning, 1200km strip is a traveller’s paradise, featuring pristine beaches, towering mountains, profound rocky canyons and the desert oasis’.

 History and Culture

Humans have inhabited the Baja peninsula for thousands of years. There were three distinct indigenous groups: Cochimi, Guaycura and Pericu. Descendants of these hunter-gatherer tribes can still be found on the peninsula.
During the period of Spanish colonisation, the peninsula was explored by Hernan Cortes in 1532 and Captain Francisco de Ulloa in 1539. It wasn’t until the 17th century, in 1683, that Spain sent ships to colonise the region.
After the Mexican-American War between 1846 and 1848, the state of Baja California was part of U.S. territory but was eventually returned due to it’s proximity to the state of Sonora just across the Gulf of California.

  Where To Go and What To Do in Baja California

The Baja peninsula is immense which can become overwhelming when planning your trip! Here are our top recommendations of places you should stop by on your travels, as well as activities that each offers!
Mexicali 
This is the capital of the Baja California state which is the northern side of the peninsula. It’s a sprawling industrial city but it also has a unique culture and history behind it. It boasts a huge immigrant population from China which has led to an intriguing yet delicious Mexican-Chinese food scene. Learn more about the city’s culture at the Casa de Cultura and La Chinesca – an underground Chinatown! This network of basements and tunnels also played a huge part in bootlegging during prohibition in the 1920s, and is a wonderful insight into the regions unique heritage.
Tijuana
This large city lies right on the U.S.-Mexico border and is just a stones throw from San Diego. It’s earned its name as the most crossed border in the world, which has made it a vibrant melting pot of cultures. In recent years the city has revived itself as a centre for urban art and a new up-and-coming bar scene as well as craft beer ventures puts it on the map for any travellers in the region!
Cabo Pulmo
This small town and National Park (of the same name) lies at the very southeastern side of Baja California on the coast of the Gulf of California. It’s widely considered to be one of the best spots for diving and snorkelling. Here, you can discover the only Pacific coral reef in the Sea of Cortez!
Cabo San Lucas 
Commonly referred to as Land’s End, this jagged coastline is the southernmost tip of the Baja peninsula. It is most well-known for its beaches and nightlife, as well as numerous water-sports on offer! Take advantage of the waters for snorkelling, sailing and diving, or go parasailing for panoramic views of this beautiful region!
It’s also a great place to spot some of Mexico’s fantastic wildlife; the area is a hotspot for humpback whales and there are whale-watching tours leaving from the town. You can also get up close to whale sharks on a snorkelling tour!
La Paz
This coastal town is the capital of Baja California Sur and has an intriguing history which includes American occupation and even being declared an independent republic in 1854! It’s a perfect place to enjoy beaches and water-sports, as well as the small town cosmopolitan vibe.

 When is the best time to visit Baja California

Baja California is a year-round destination with temperatures varying between lows of 26C/79F in January and 33C/91F in July.
We recommend visiting in January to March when temperatures are comfortable; it is also the prime time for whale sightings!
July to September sees the most rain and hurricanes are also likely in the region during these months, so avoid planning your trip around then.
