Baja California has a mixture of desert landscapes, lush oases and an abundance of marine life. Lying 1300 km west of busy Mexico City, the pennisula has managed to maintain its isolation from the rest of Mexico and yet is one of the most popular destinations in the country.
Baja California holidays are best enjoyed when the sun isn't at its most ferocious, ideally between December and April. The average temperature between these months hovers around 25-29 degrees Celsius, with intermittent rainy periods. Baja California lies within the Pacific Time Zone (UTC - 08:00). The most scenic way to enjoy Baja California holidays is to drive along the transpennisular highway (Hwy. 1) which traverses the entire length of the country from Ensanada in the North to Cabo San Lucas in the South. Arriving by air is also easy as Cabo San Lucas has an international airport with daily flights. Once you arrive in Baja California, getting around is possible using a rental car, local bus and taxi services.
Baja California holidays can be very diverse. Surfers come from all over the world to enjoy the best swells in all of the Pacific in Baja at Cabo San Lucas. Others come to spend time helping researchers with the juvenile whale sharks, or to glimpse sea lion colonies up close at Lovers Beach . Well known for affordable seafood and sushi, local restaurants and resorts in Baja California provide an array of food options. Hiring a kayak, scuba diving or snorkelling are also popular options for those visiting the area. The diversity of the flaura and fauna found on the peninsula is well represented at the Constitution 1857 National Park in the Sierra de Juárez mountain range and the Sierra de San Pedro Mártir National Park in Ensenada.
