Baja California


For centuries, Baja California's vast desert landscapes rich in exotic vegetation with pristine beaches, framed by jagged mountains and azure waters teeming with life, have attracted adventurers, religious seekers, and tourists alike. The peninsula’s infinite biodiversity commences in the northernmost region with a Mediterranean climate that evolves in the central area into a true bountiful desert garden which adapts to a semi-tropical weather at Finisterra, “where land ends and heaven begins”. Bustling border cities are the entry way to a reclusive land with fishing villages, mining towns and ancient missions intersected by the contrasting tourist centers of the South. Defined by many as “The other Mexico”, Baja California is a cosmopolitan territory inherited from the first indigenous peoples, followed by the Spanish conquerors; to the Germans awaiting a new adventure, English and Americans who tried to colonize this “inhospitable” paradise, French in search of wealth in the copper industry and Italians attempting to become prosperous during the gold rush.
