Also known as Baja Norte, Baja California is synonymous with fun and good food. Its main cities (Tijuana, Mexicali and Ensenada) and the Magical Town of Tecate are genuine gastronomical seedbeds on the border.
Its Baja Med cuisine and the quality of its wines and beers have gained international acclaim. During the 17th and 18th centuries Jesuit missionaries established themselves here, leaving behind beautiful missions that you can still visit.
Baja California is one of the two states that comprise the world’s second longest peninsula. It is located on Mexico’s northeastern border, flanking the United States to the north, the Sea of Cortez to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the West and the state of Baja California Sur to the South. Its annual average temperature is between 64 and 66°F; from May to September temperatures reach 86°F. Thanks to its unique climate with rain during the winter, the land in this state is ideal for cultivating grapevine.
