Bahia de Los Angeles

This morning we will depart El Rosario on the Pacific side of Baja and drive across the Peninsula to the Sea of Cortez. Our desination for the day is Bahia de Los Angeles, another 6 hours deeper into Mexico. This is a very small town that may or may not have internet. We could be offline for a couple days. We plan to hang there and scuba with the whale sharks if they are around.

Baja is absolutely beautiful. It’s what we envision southern California must have looked like a few hundred years ago. In the wake of the Mexican-American war in 1848 the US basically stole New Mexico and California for a mere 15 million dollars. That deal could have easily included the Baja Peninsula. Had that happened, all of Baja would be a paved concrete extension of wealth trickling down from San Diego all the way to Cabo (think Florida on the west coast). It would be a retirement and resort haven for the rich.

As it turns out, Baja remains desolate, natural, raw, undeveloped, and native. It’s so cool that places like this still exist, as rare as they are. Places untouched by the masses. Untouched by the Walmarts and Mcdonalds with their concrete fields painted with bright orange parking lines. These are the places we seek on our journey. This is why we left the US. We want to see as many of these places in the world as we can, while we still can.

  1. Any Mexican, would recognise that Mexico was abused, undervalued and downgraded in international circles, most of all by the United States.
