Is Baja California the place to be?

Sigh. Some destinations seem to be in the limelight, and not always in the best light. One such place is Baja California. It has its ups and downs, but that kind of turbulence usually doesn’t assure travelers. The Mexican peninsula south of the US state of California offers beaches, parties, and a multitude of outdoor activities. But is it dangerous as some people might suggest? We think not. Our affiliate friends, World Nomads are constantly keeping an eye on what’s happening across the globe and where to go and where not to go. They offer travel insurance – that’s their job. Here are their tips for safety in Baja California and what to know before you go.

The Baja California peninsula in Mexico shares a border with the US state of California and includes two states, Baja California and Baja California Sur. The entire peninsula is often referred to simply as “Baja California” (which translates to “Lower California”) or “Baja Cali” for short. Its northern border, which is the busiest land crossing in the world, is just an hour from downtown San Diego. We’ve been several times and have always had an enjoyable experience. Just go!
