So far we have travelled from Vancouver, BC to Costa Rica and will soon be heading south towards Argentina. When people ask about our favourite place that we've been to we almost always say "Baja". The wild-west feel, warm waters, white sand beaches, and cheap tacos make for an experience that you won't soon forget. Here's an organized collection of our Baja blog posts.

1 - Summary:
You're going to need a few things to have a good time in Baja, but really a handful of cash and a map are at the top of the list.

Thanks nocensorbo! It's new and has a few issues I'm trying to sort out before we head down to South America... let me know if there's anything that I should add that would be helpful! In the middle of putting together a Frequently Asked Questions page as well, so feel free to fire away questions here and I'll put them on the site! Thanks :)

How is your Spanish? Lots of people know English in Mex but it always helps to have some Spanish.

We knew absolutely no Spanish before driving into Mexico. Eventually we took some classes in Guanajuato and then some more in Guatamala in San Pedro la Laguna. It definitely helps to have an understanding of the language, but if you don't know you can always learn on the road! If we were smart we would have enrolled in some classes before leaving... whoops!
