    Tijuana Things to Do

    Haha, when you pass the U.S. - Mexico border in San Ysidro you will see - look at my picture - quite another world: a lot of mainly old looking cars - taxis painted in yellow and the dark-skinned (hmm... at least darker than me) men - drivers asking you to take a taxi to Tijuana. Add a little chaotic traffic and street vendors. This is Mexico!...

    Tijuana Things to Do

    As all I did in Tijuana was shop. I was only 14 at the time and found the whole experience very different to my lifestyle. All I really remember many people trying to sell us leather jackets and proving that they were leather with the lighter. I swear they must go through a dozen lighters a day proving the jackets are leather. The other memory in...

    Tijuana Things to Do

    About two hours away from Tijuana, right along the United States/Mexico Border, opposite the miniscule town of Calexico, California you will find Mexicali. Mexicali is often times known only as the "larger town you cross to get to San Felipe". Let me tell you, Mexicali can be a lot more than that. Aside from being the land that witnessed my birth,...

  • Ensenada

    When I went to Ensenada, I really had no idea what to expect as I did no research on it at all. When I got there, I found this city of 400,000 plus people is quite the tourist stop on the cruise ship routes. That's not a bad thing except for that a lot of the restaurants in the area I was staying in were quite expensive. Ensenada is on the Pacific...

    Going north from Ensenada on 1D (the toll road), you'll see an exit sign for "El Mirador." That's Spanish for "scenic view." Pull off there. It really is nice.

    This was an unexpected surprise! I had just been reading about the sea turtles of Mexico in Lonely Planet, and here they were right near our campsite. There are 3 large tanks with about 2 in each, and they are the funniest animals to watch. They were becoming endangered, but luckily people took notice and traced their mating patterns from Mexico to...

  • Enjoy the nightlife in Cabo San Lucas

    We went to Cabo San Lucas to see the larger town and enjoy the shopping, and stayed into the early evening to listen to music and have a quick look at the nightlife - since we are both women in our 50s and not really that into partying, and since we had to get up early the next morning for our conference which was our main purpose in going, we...
