Hitting the road in Baja California (VIDEO)

Road trips are a good way to see parts of the country few get to experience.

I recently drove into remote areas of the Baja California peninsula, around San Ignacio and Guerrero Negro, and found empty beaches, cave paintings, rare pronghorns (a type of antelope) and horned lizards. 

Between January and March, Baja’s coastal waters are busy with whales, pelicans and sea lions – and there’s world-class scuba diving.

Keep going (or start your road trip from northern Baja) and you can reach the Guadalupe Valley, Mexico’s outstanding wine region.
