Baja California—as long on fun as it is on land

Jutting into the Pacific Ocean just south of the U.S.–Mexico border, the Baja California Peninsula is one of Mexico's hottest vacation hotspots. Stretching for 775 miles from Mexicali in the north to Cabo San Lucas in the south, the peninsula offers something for everyone, including top-notch wine tasting, whale watching, and world-renowned diving, plus plenty of pristine sand beaches to boot. Whether you're looking to party the night away in one of the lively towns, or soak up the tranquility of isolated beaches, there's a Baja California Peninsula vacation rental that's right for you.

More than just lazy beach days (though you can do that, too)

Baja California is synonymous with beaches, and for good reason. There are plenty to choose from if you're looking to frolic in the surf or work on your tan. While you're there, keep your eye out for migrating California gray whales. For a more personal marine life encounter, hit up any of the bays along the coast for some unrivaled snorkeling and diving. Cabo Pulmo is 1 of the oldest reefs on the continent, with a rainbow of fish waiting to be discovered. The Pacific coast is known for its sports fishing, while the mangroves are great for kayaking.

From rock paintings, to red wines, to rollicking resorts

You'll never be bored at a Baja California Peninsula vacation rental. Head to Mulege to see some ancient rock paintings and the remains of a historic mission town. The calm waters of the Bay of Balandra let you walk among manta rays as you enjoy the soft sands and warm ocean waters. The peninsula is also home to the Valle de Guadalupe wine route, where you can sample Mexico's top vintages (bring your designated driver). Of course, no visit would be complete without a little partying in the world-renowned resort towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.

You'll be feelin' hot, hot, hot in Baja California

The climate can vary widely in different parts of the peninsula, so be sure to check your particular destination before heading to your Baja California Peninsula vacation rental. The desert regions are dry year round, with high temps ranging from the low 70s in the coldest months of December and January, to triple digits from June through September. The resort towns at the tip see fewer swings, with highs in the 80s and 90s for much of the year. Overnight lows can dip into the 50s from December through April, so pack layers if you're visiting in the winter months.

So much nature in such a skinny strip of land

Don't let the narrowness of the peninsula fool you—there's plenty of natural diversity packed in the 775 miles of land. Sandwiched between the Gulf of California and the Pacific Ocean, the peninsula is home to 4 deserts, leafy mangroves, plenty of volcanic activity, and the Peninsular Ranges, which form a spine running the length of the spit. The coasts alternate between rocky outcroppings and sandy stretches, plus tranquil bays full of tropical fish and other marine life. You'll likely spot some migrating whales as you take in the breathtaking sunsets over the crashing ocean waves.
