      5.0

      To do so, you have to first get to the city of Huamantla, located in the Tlaxcala state. Once you are there, you must take road 136 and drive 8 miles before taking the exit to Teacalco.

      Camp at Punta Baja

      Punta Baja is an old fishing camp and (mostly) summertime surf spot at the end of a dirt road about 40 minutes drive south west of El Rosario. Amenities and cel service are almost non-existent.

      Camp in Cataviña

      5.0
      Cataviña is place unlike any other in Baja and therefor unlike anywhere else in the world. Massive boulder-features akin to Joshua Tree or the Alabama hills are surrounded by deep-cut washes, pinturas rupestres (painted caves), towering tentacle-like boojum, and massive cardon cacti, creating an ...

    • Agua de Las Flores, Mexico

      Camp at Playa La Gringa, Bahía de Los Angeles

      To say that Bahía de Los Angeles is remote is an understatement. It has one gas station, two "restaurants", no cell service, and one absolutely picturesque volcanic island just offshore, Isla Coronado. It is Baja in all its rustic glory.While there are a couple of campos where you can rent a pala...

    • Santa Ynés, Mexico

      Explore the Ruins & Pinturas Rupestres of Cataviña

      5.0
      Cataviña is one of those places that defies description and is a favorite of all who visit Baja beyond the typical tourist haunts of the border towns and Cabo. It is an almost-alien landscape of massive boulders strewn amongst the world's largest cactus, the cardón, interspersed with the giant te...

    • Ciudad de México, Mexico

      Explore Ex Convento de Los Leones

      There are plenty of hiking (and mtn biking) paths that you can take around the convent, but on this adventure we really only saw the Ex Convent itself. The park is good for an entire day trip or weekend trip though (there's camping too). Getting there: Car is the easiest way (if you have a rental...

    • Corral Blanco, Mexico

      Camp at Bill's Beach, Playa Santispac

      Bahía de Concepcion on the eastern side of Baja California is one of the most iconic and beautiful places on the peninsula. It and its beaches are *why* people drive for two days out into the middle of nowhere. It is a place that makes Baja, Baja. Bill's Beach, so named for a Canadian man who cam...

    • Loreto Municipality, Mexico

      Hike El Tular Canyon in the Sierra de la Gigante Mountains

      2.5 mi / 328.1 ft gain
      My favorite time to make this hike is just before sunrise. The alpine glow on the range above the cool canyon is a beautiful sight. There is enough time to make the hike and get back before the sun begins to heat the canyon floor, awakening rattlesnakes and Baja's intense midday heat.About 8.5km ...

    • Playa el Requeson, Mexico

      Camp at Playa el Requeson

      Of the nine or so beaches where you can camp and/or find lodging along the eastern shore of Bahía de Concepcíon in Baja, El Requeson is arguably the most beautiful. It has no facilities, no cell service, and no amenities other than the occasional local vendor who may (or may not) come by in the m...

    • Los Cabos, Mexico

      Hike to Table Top Mountain

      1 mi / 500 ft gain
      This hike is relatively easy with amazing views at the top and during the trail. There is little elevation gain in the beginning, and the gain is gradual as you make it to the top of the mountain. But if you do get tired there are many rocks to take a quick break on.  How to get there:  I wish I ...

      5.0
      While not as impressive or popular as the Tulum Archaeological Site [add hyperink] located 27km to the north, the Muyil Archaeological Site has several small groupings of structures, and has a coastal jungle feel that inland archaeological sites don't have. Muyil is a contemporary name given to t...

      Camp on the Agua Verde Isthmus

      Baja is one glorious gorgeous empty beach after another and some of the more geophysically remarkable can be experienced if you have a 4WD vehicle (though the best they say are only accessible by kayak). The Agua Verde isthmus is right next to the tiny fishing village of Puerto Agua Verde but is ...
