Estado de Baja California Norte Travel Guide: 1,376 reviews and 2,872 photos

riding my bicycle through the very north of mexico

when i biked the american pacific coast i also decided to visit baja california.
the landscape in baja is very spectacular once you get south of rosarito with mostly semi desert landscapes and a rough coastline with some nice beaches.
i cycled from tijuana to ensenada and back and it was a pretty easy ride.
the only tough part is from tijuana to rosarito because of the heavy traffic, but the ride from rosarito to ensenada is fantastic as long as you don't mind a bit of hills.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:lot's. the owner of hostal sauzal certainly one of them.
  • Cons:tijuana is the kinda place you should get out of quick.
  • In a nutshell:once you are south of rosarito it's fantastic.

    Sadly the dunes are shrinking due to condo construction. Enjoy them while you still can! Try to avoid weekends, it's a nut house. For off road tours check out letsatv.com. They are a great tour company. Sand dunes & trails available.

    Biking down Baja beats busing down!

    Been there, but don't remember a thing, except for the hotel room. Montezuma's revenge....

    Great job describing parts of Baja, Claus. I've been to Tijuana, Nogales, Rosarita Beach and then further south. Your warning about Tijuana is so true.

    Great place for a bike ride! I've been to the Ensenada/Rosarito area once and really enjoyed the desert landscape there.

    A great end to a great journey! But you forgot to mention the 'zebras' you can get your picture with on the streets of downtown TJ;-]
