Lately there have been some security issues in the border towns, such as TJ and Ensenada. I've never had any problems on numerous trips to baja, both by moto and Land Cruiser. I just try to hit the northern border in the morning 8-10 am...ish and then head South a hundred miles or so....
I really like the road south of San Felipe, on the Sea of Cortez side, down to Puertocitas and the Bay of Gonzaga. Alfonsinas' is a nice hotel/restaurant in Gonzaga...and then head South and visit Coco at Coco's Corner....
With a little love and luck, we will get by.
