Ocean adventures in Baja California

The powdery sands and lapping waves of the Pacific are a big draw along the Baja California state of this Mexican Peninsula, with long stretches of beachfront between Tijuana and Ensenada especially popular. The beach town of Rosarito is a popular spot for surfers, while others take to paddleboards and jet skis to enjoy the blue waves around Ensenada. Divers will appreciate the Rosarito Underwater Park, where you can swim alongside vibrantly-colored fish and the marine flora that has sprung up around a sunken navy ship. Scuba tours and courses are available from vendors in this area, or you can test out the snorkeling scene as well.

Delving into the culture of Baja California

While it may be hard to pull away from the warm shores of the Pacific, the cities of Baja California are packed with activity too, from bustling shopping districts and mouthwatering dining options, to a wide range of cultural attractions. Head to the border town of Tijuana to tour a huge cultural center, with museum exhibits detailing the history of the Baja Peninsula, as well as a sculpture garden and IMAX theater. You'll also want to check out the Avenida Revolucion that runs through the historic downtown area here. Toward the eastern side of the peninsula, Mexicali has an interactive children's museum and art gallery among its attractions.

Escaping winter on the beaches of Baja California

There's nothing better than escaping cold winters on the beaches of Baja California, enjoying the warm sun and digging your toes into the soft sand. Whales can be spotted with their calves off the Pacific coast during this time, making for an unforgettable experience. The winter months are a popular time to visit this sun-soaked region, so make sure you select your Baja California vacation rental early in order to secure your dates and ensure you'll be sitting beachside, enjoying 70-degree days. Thanks to warm weather year-round and low rainfall levels in popular areas like Tijuana, there's no bad time to visit this peninsula.

Nature-filled fun in Baja California

With so many entertainment districts, colorful shopping streets and lively beaches to enjoy on the northern end of the Baja California state, it can be easy to overlook one of the stunning, nature-filled sections towards the southern border. Valle de los Cirios is a large wildlife reserve, where you'll find endemic reptiles and mammals roaming along the cactus-filled landscape. Neighboring El Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve has UNESCO World Heritage Site status thanks to its marine sanctuary, where a couple of whale species come to winter alongside sea lions and elephant seals. You'll find a number of Baja California vacation rentals in close proximity to both preserves.
