If you live in Southern California, or if you’re going to be visiting the San Diego area sometime in the near future, I highly recommend you schedule at least a day to go South of the border and visit our Mexican neighbors. If you have several days to visit Baja California, there are so many beautiful, relaxing places you can go. A weekend in Ensenada or Rosarito is always a popular choice for surfers and people who like eating tacos and lounging on the beach, but if you’re looking for something a little different, why not check out the Valle de Guadalupe?
Day and weekend trips to Mexico are a time honored tradition for San Diegans. We love going South of the border to shop, eat, explore, and have wonderful beach weekend trips. Rosarito and Ensenada are especially popular with the surfing community.
If you’re going to be in the area, you might want to add a little excitement to your trip with a side-trip to Mexico. You can go to Ensenada for the weekend if you want to spend some time really relaxing and getting to know the place, but if you only have one day, it’s still definitely worthwhile to head down to Mexico.
At the tip of the Baja California peninsula in Mexico is a beautiful place known as Cabo San Lucas. For those of us lucky enough to live in California, it’s quite a short and often inexpensive flight to find ourselves in a gorgeous Mexican beach town, sipping on margaritas and enjoying tacos in the sunshine. Cabo often gets overlooked when compared to some of the other Mexican resort towns to the East, such as Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, and Cozumel.
