Baja's gorgeous - fantastic trails, some nice coastal tarmac, and the Sea of Cortez is stunning. If you've been dreaming of days kicking up dust then sipping cold
in beach hammocks, Baja's as good as anywhere. The Yanqui tourists tend to cluster (mainly round Cabo and San Felipe), leaving the rest of the peninsula quiet.
Baja's a nice, easy introduction to Mexico. Skip straight through the snotty Tijuana border, get a tourist card in quieter Ensenada (and have a teqilla in Hussong's), and sort the bike paperwork in La Paz. Then jump the ferry across to Mazatlan and into the mainland. Ace.
Cheers, suerte, Dan Walsh
