Estado de Baja California Sur Travel Guide: 1,333 reviews and 2,870 photos

in the fall of 2006 i went cycling down the baja peninsula.
i found the northern part of the peninsula nice, but the southern part was by far my favorite.

the cycling there is excellent and the landscape is some of the most amazing i have ever seen.
fabulous desert landscape and giant cactus everywhere.

it was like cycling through a spagetti western.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:amazing landscape.
  • Cons:the distances are sometimes a bit long when cycling.
  • In a nutshell:a must go place if you like barren landscape.

    Claus, what an excellent page this is! I've always wanted to visit there too but thought it would be difficult even by car - let alone biking it!! Local accoms are what I prefer to use too. Thanks for these scenic shots of cactus-land! Happy New Year

    So, YOU are one of those bikers I see when driving up or down the Baja peninsula!! I always wonder how you know where to stay; but mostly, how to keep from being hit on such a narrow road and without shoulders so much of the time! Amazing!!! Trish

    I see you've found your own secluded spot in this fantastic coastline with untouched beaches... Great and very exotic trip not worse than Yalta. Thanks Claus for sharing!

    Baja can be a bit magical, I think, at 20 kph. Que perfecto!

    Amazing cactus landscape, secluded beaches... Looks a fantastic place! Well, it's not Brazil but I'm sure I would love it there :) Lucky Luke & Jolly Jumper, hahahaha.
