I simply love Baja. The people are friendly…when you encounter them…and the terrain and water are magnificent. 6 years ago

This would be a great adventure, the beach, the desert, surfing, Mexico, the missions, the isolation….. Oh Yes! I would love to take this trip with my father, the trip would give us lots of time to just be together and talk about life.
About three years ago I found a web site (www.bajataco.com) that started me on this journey. The web site author modified a Toyota Tacoma into the ultimate “Baja Expedition Vehicle”. I immediately began modifying my Tacoma and planning similar expeditions. So far, no Baja trip, but I have explored much of New Mexico off-road offerings. Some day, Baja here I come! 6 years ago
You can do it!
Take it easy, take your time. Drive during the day only. Set your expectations low for how far one can drive in a day. There are lots of great places to explore and stay along the way so it would be rare to need to go more than 400 km (250 miles) in a day.
Enjoy as much as possible along the way. Really enjoyed Bahia de los Angeles, BC; Santa Rosalia, BCS; Loreto, BCS; La Paz, BCS; Los Barriles, BCS; Favourite beach was Playa Requeson in Bahia Concepcion, BCS. Spent a bit more than 3 weeks going the length of the Baja before taking the ferry to Mazatlan from La Paz.
Don’t be like one couple we met along the way who raced at high speed from San Diego to Cabo in three days by driving day and night-way too dangerous!
As for border crossing, avoid the crowds at Tijuana by opting for Tecate to the east. 7 years ago
