Hmmm...gotta think about this one for a while...Ah, mosquitos 7 days after a hurricane.
In a nutshell
Try this new fun destination in Baja
The Federal check points along the highway can be intimidating to even the most seasoned traveler, but as long as you're honest and not trying to break any laws you normally just get waved through on a southbound journey.
There are 5-6 check points between the border and Loreto. The only one that I've actually been stopped at for a car search is the last one between Mulehe and Loreto.
Unique Suggestions: Northbound on the other hand, typically requires 5-20 minutes of standing in the sun while the Feds conduct a real "inspection" of your car.
if you're using a rental, make certain you have checked it before driving any long distances where a checkpoint might be encountered. There is normally one about 30 minutes north of Loreto traveling toward Mulehe and they most always will inspect.
Fun Alternatives: Don't drive or use a tour bus if you are timid. The roads are narrow, speeds are excessive of the "suggested" limit (more than double is not unheard of), and there is nothing even resembling a shoulder to the road. If you leave the pavement at speed, you will roll or take a dive off a cilff.
