I know it is hard to believe and goes against some folks logic but the central Pacside is actually warmer than the gulf side in the winter...way warmer than BOLA, Mulege & even Loreto.

This is because our water temps stay above 70 all winter long until late March(which is when our winter begins). We try to get a swim in everyday...good for the soul! So don't be afraid to check out the Pacific side in the winter...you will be pleasantly surprised!

Yes. I envision some Pacific and Sea of Cortes time. Warmer than the Gulf side.? Then I need to check it out. I know I’m going to enjoy NOT having an itenerary.

So, in this day and age I have to ask.....how well do cell phones work?

Every year an international group of us people that have B-days in Nov. go to a place called Muzik Mountain in the canyon above Burro beach and stay for the month. Kinda like the Burning Man of Muelege

I should have clarified that my statement that the water gets colder south of the border applies to Northern Baja, on the Pacific side. This is a localized phenomenon. At some point of course when you get far enough south the water warms up because you are nearing the tropics.

Cold is relative though! That picture looks very inviting Shari!

Telcel works great here and we also have new high speed internet in our campground, Inn and vacation rental houses.

Be sure to drive out to the whale watching launch beach at Ojo de Liebre just south of Guerrero Negro. It's another 1/2 hr. or so to the lagoon once on that road - great campground - there's also a restaurant. Big sign on Mex. 1 at the turnoff.

This is at KM 207.5, and is paved where it leaves Hwy. 1.
Remember, in Baja Sur, the kilometer markers increase northbound, the opposite of the northern state.

The Eagle Monument (state border) is KM 220.

Looks like you cut off a bit of my wording... but yes, The kilometer numbers increase as you go south, with a new KM 0 at the U.S. Border, Ensenada, San Quintin, L.A. Bay Highway, State Border.

They increase going North in Baja Sur, with a new KM 0 at Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, Cd. Insurgentes, Loreto, Santa Rosalia... and then the state border.

Nice info on those maps! January looks good based on those. Cooler in March though.
Ha! I need to see what the waters off Oregon look like.

Retire,

I have made the full trip down Baja three times in the last four years from the Portland area. If you want to talk, PM me.
