Newbie question


Hi...I am cleaning and sorting things at the moment and came across my old topo maps from appalachian trail hikes in New Hampshire and Maine. It occurs to me to ask (after reading about the Guadalupe Canyon climbing), are there any such things as topo maps for baja, or are you dependent on maps drawn by friends (such as on this board) to get around? Zoe:?:

Yes, Baja Topos are available from Map Centre in San Diego, and many other locations as well... The Baja Almanac takes the Mexican Topos (not the highest detailed ones) and puts them into book form with other details added... They are the best Baja maps even with the mistakes made by the Mexican cartographers... http://www.bajaalmanac.com or http://www.bajabooksandmaps.com

INEGI maps can be purchase from their store in Mexicali - on Independcia across from the bull ring. Much cheaper than San Diego if you're buying several.

INEGI maps


They are also available at their office in La Paz. We bought a disk with all of the ones for Baja on it. That is pretty cool if you travel in the outback with your laptop. I seem to remember that the disk cost about $100 but dont hold me to that.

Zoe- Have fun!
