The moment someone thinks of crossing the border from the U.S. into Mexico by way of
California, the first place they most probably think of is Tijuana and all the hype Hollywood has
planted in people’s minds: disreputable bars, wild parties and nil security. However, crossing
the border and visiting Baja California can actually be quite different : a multi-sensory experience to be enjoyed safely by
any visitor. This is because Baja California is a place rich in many aspects: historical, cultural,
natural and of course, gastronomical.
This unique site is in itself a complete adventure, as here you will find innumerable attractions,
such as the sighting of white sharks and sea lions on the Isla de Guadalupe; cave paintings and

above sea level, making a tremendous sound that inspired its name : “The Bellower”
This place is known by its calm ocean and a gigantic valley, a combination of half-desert and

Baja California has 90% of wines produced in Mexico. This is due, for the most part, to the
