Itinerary

Included / Not included


Baja California

After maneuvering our way past Mexican customs we cross the remnants of the Colorado river and head down the eastern Gulf of California side of the Baja peninsula on Highway 5. Our first rest day is in the waterfront town of San Felipe where the gorgeous beaches and delicious seafood will tempt us with early retirement.

Instead we pedal on, basking in sunshine, and dipping in the indigo Sea of Cortez. South of Puertecitos we cross to the western side of the peninsula, meeting the Trans-Baja highway at Chapala. After entering the state of Baja California Sur we arrive to a rest day in Guerrero Negro on the Pacific Ocean. We then traverse the cactus forest landscape of the Deserto de Vizcaino and pass by the Volcano of the 3 Virgins followed by picturesque Santa Rosalia.

After camping on the beach at the Bahia Concepcion and a rest day in the colonial seaside town of Loreto we spin inland once more, towards the middle of the peninsula stopping for cervezas and open spit chicken in the junction of Ciudad Insurgentes.
