    • El Requeson is one of my favorites. It's rare to find it empty, but the setting is serene. A penninsula that jets out into the bay. A tiny sliver of sand with water all around.

      What are your favorite camping beaches in Baja?

    • Just the other day my father was asking me if I know or can recommend places in Mexico by the beach that are driveable and safe. He doesn’t mind driving an extra mile to get to a vacation spot for a few days with warm and clear water. This sounds like something he’d like 😉

      How is the drive there? Would you advise taking a motorcycle there or a car? Are there any camping spots or hotels only?

    • I'm giving a presentation at the Overland Expo titled "Baja on a Budget". Your dad might enjoy checking out this expo. It's a blast.

      So many great camp spots in Baja... The drive to this particular beach is almost entirely paved. The main road through Baja (Highway 1) is well paved. There's a small dirt turn off down to this beach which would be easy to do on even a cruiser bike. A car would be fine too though. This particaulr beach has only camping spots.

    • No more pics from this spot, but here's a shot from down the road a bit - Posada Concepción. We kayaked out here and followed around a pod of dolphins. It was amazing...

    • that looks idyllic !! Mexico is one of the countries that I can retire to, seeing that photo moves it up the list.

    • Ben, that sounds awesome!

      I'll let my dad know about the expo and also the actual camping grounds. This is exactly what he'd been asking me for 👍

    • Chris, I think this will be my 4th visit to OX... It's been great to see it grow over the years. Vegasphotog said it well,

      Once every five years will be good enough for me.

      Vendors are selling stuff with big discounts. And OX is a great place to go and get inspiration. It feels good to be surrounded by like minded people. People who are curious, with itchy feet and a desire to travel. There's a mix of full blown adventurers and weekend warriors. Lots of olive drab clothing with more than enough pockets (the 4x4 crew). Then there are moto guys, 75% of which are riding their 1200GS' slowly on the pavement while standing on the pegs. And there is the handfull of cyclists who are smelly with holes in their clothes.

      I poke fun, but it's really a great environment. The presentations and round table discussions will inspire and educate. Checking out all the homemade and professional made vehicles is like being a kid in a candy store. The cream of the crop vehicles are upwards of a half-million dollars... Insane!

      For anyone who is at all curious about overlanding, I highly recommend checking it out, at least once. It's worth it.

    • I am thinking about making a run down here in January....mostly to kayak....should I bring my mountain bike (mostly to get around locally) or would it be target for vandals as iDrive down Baja?

    • If it's a bike that is of no value to you, don't stress it too much. If it's expensive, you had better make sure it's locked up and/or in your sight. But in general, be smart just as you would around home and it "shouldn't" be an issue. Have a great trip!
