Bahía Concepción

The Bahía Concepción coastline features over 50 miles of popular beaches especially for those staying in the nearby oasis town of Mulegé.

Tijuana

The westernmost city in Mexico, Tijuana is unsurprisingly the most visited border city on the planet.

Mission Loreto

Loreto was founded in 1697 and became the first Spanish mission on the Baja California Peninsula. Now mostly a tourist destination, it was once considered "head and mother of all Spanish missions" in California.

Bullfighting

Whatever your feelings may be about bullfighting, nowhere is the tradition more alive than in Tijuana's Plaza de Toros.

Cabo San Lucas

Cabo may be better known as a celebrity hot spot, but it is also distinguished by a rock formation called El Arco de Cabo San Lucas or Lands End.

Playa Los Cerritos

If you ask around, you'll hear there's no better place to take in the surf or sunset in Baja than Los Cerritos.

Magdalena Bay

One of the major draws to Mexico's Baja peninsula is the sight of gray whales migrating through protected bays and lagoons like this one.

Cave Paintings

These primitive paintings in central Baja are the only art of their kind in North America. It's a tough journey to get to them, but well worth it to see one of Baja's treasures.

Ensenada

It's easy to see why this coastal city has earned the local nickname "La Cenicienta del Pacifico" or "The Cinderella of the Pacific."

Shrimp Tostada

In between all the margaritas and tacos you can consume, try to make room for another Baja delicacy: seafood tostadas.
