Mexico’s Baja Norte Nuevo

Mexico is often up and down in the parade of travel destinations. One “off” story in the news can derail the country’s reputation and, therefore, it’s fortunes. There are any number of reasons why this happens, and many of the reasons are political and not always in Mexico’s hands, and not in its favour, unfortunately.

At the time of this writing, it feels like things are swinging ever so-slightly back in the country’s favour. The northern half of the Baja Peninsula is having its day in the sun. Joe Furey shares Tijuana’s thriving food and art scene, the acclaimed but laid-back Valle de Guadalupe wine country, and surfing and hiking spots near Ensenada (for burning off all those seafood tostadas).

Guadalupe, Mexico offers a variety of interesting reasons to spend time and explore. Some highlights: Historic Sites: Guadalupe boasts a rich history, and there are several historic sites worth visiting. The Guadalupe Mission, also known as Templo de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, is a beautiful 18th-century church with intricate architecture and cultural significance.

Cultural Festivals: The city hosts vibrant cultural festivals throughout the year, providing an opportunity to immerse yourself in Mexican traditions. The Festival de la Virgen de Guadalupe, celebrated in December, is a major event that showcases colorful parades, traditional dances, and religious ceremonies.
