Overview

Offering invaluable sightseeing tips, advice on fun activities, and detailed descriptions of campgrounds, this grand tour of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula provides both RV and tent campers with the best resources for planning a vacation chock-full of beachcombing, back-roads exploring, golf, fishing, whale watching, and water sports. The tour centers around one of the most interesting highways in the world—a two-lane ribbon of asphalt winding southward to Cabo San Lucas, from the Pacific Ocean to the Sea of Cortez and back again—and includes important information on border crossings, document requirements, vehicle preparation, and road conditions. In addition to describing the formal campgrounds of Baja—and featuring updated location maps, recreational opportunities, lists of facilities, and driving instructions from nearby towns and routes—this revised guide also provides telephone numbers, websites, e-mail addresses, GPS coordinates, and picture icons that offer a convenient, quick review of each campground.
