Some sources claim that Cabo San Lucas sees more tourists than any other city in the country. That seems like a huge claim, but a trip to Walmart in Cabo San Lucas would support that statistic. As we strolled the familiar wide aisles and looked at the last minute Christmas glitz we were not among … More The wind blew us to the tourist capital of Mexico! But we escaped.
Cruising through the area of Baja called the East Cape we found small towns and beautiful beaches. Our target was Cabo Pulmo but we went a little further and checked out Los Arbolitos. That was a beautiful beach with palapas for day visits or pitching a tent under. There was a short hike along the … More Camping in Cabo– the “other” Cabo in Baja.

Baja California, Sur, Mexico! Yet another Mexican state on this voyage. We arrived to Guerrero Negro on Thanksgiving Day. A date with significance to very few of the residents of this town! We drove through and took a look around at the city commerce which seemed to be bustling. We settled on a place … More Posing in front of a mountain of the white, powdery stuff in November!
Just a ways down highway 1 from Ensenada, the hot springs book mentioned Uruapan Hot Springs. We followed the plywood signs towards “agua caliente” through the fields and arroyos.
