Driving and Camping in Baja California, Mexico

Going South to Mexico

sunny

As family tradition every year we travel around the holidays to any place that we can find cheap airline tickets
or place that we really want to explore. This year we decided to go camping to Mexico. I know that many peoples
are afraid of going South b/c of all the drug war and the dangerous associated with it. We just don't like the fear to hold us
down. So we packed our Hybrid Honda Civic car and went to Baja California. The same route was made by our Couch-surfers from Germany a month earlier
though with their own bikes. We crossed the borders and went to Ensenada where we camped for the night. The campground is Called La Canada that is always packed during the summer but empty during the winter. The next morning after having Crepes and coffee we continued down to San Thomas. We stopped in the way and had some snacks and Mexican Food. We drove south until we stopped at San Quantin. It is such a small place but is not that developed. This night we decided to stay at Hotel...which cost just $51 for clean and big room. The Villa hotel was recommended by 2 Canadian that were
traveling from Alberta to Mexico with their motorcycle. After a sightseeing in the town...we found Molino Vijeo that took us forever to find.....

Camping with Children

Camping is fun and more affordable than any other vacation

Camping, Camping and Camping is such an amazing adventure in itself.. So After a camping trip in Sweden with my 2 children at the time, sleeping in Tent
in cold weather. I said to myself if I made it through the night then I will survive any other camping trip.
Sure enough, in the morning I was determined to start another chapter of my life and camp as much as possible.
Well back in the United States, My husband is addicted to buying merchandise online so he bought all the equipment essential for camping.
My children love putting the 2 tents together and love biking their bikes, scotters, and eating along the 2 days camping.
Now after 3 camping trips and the 4th in its way we are going for 5 days camping to Mexico.
Pictures will follow..........

Dec 2010 Traveling to Guadaljara, Mexico

We went for 8 days and moved from city to another

sunny 19 °C

We chose to visit Guadaljara due to recommedation of other Mexican that we met previously during our travels in Mexico.
We landed at the airport, this time we didn't check any luggage just we took two bags with us.
We checked in Hotel/Hostel that was very clean and it was in the heart of town. We walked everywhere....
We ate the best Tacos ever for cheap price. We took Carriage ride through the town.... Then the next day we moved to different town....
we went to Guanajuto....different state....then we hopped on first class bus and went to Perto Valletra....
The transportation system between States in Mexico are very upscale and first class service and they provide lunch for you too....

We loved the Monarch butterfly

Breath taking scene from Monarch butterfly

We loved the Monarch butterfly... It is breath taking scene.
"Every fall, huge numbers of Monarch Butterflies gather in southern Canada to migrate. Until recently, it was not known where these butterflies went. We now know that some Monarch Butterflies travel over 3,100 kilometers, just to overwinter in places like Michoacan, Mexico. More specifically, these butterflies usually congregate in a small town in Michoacan called Angangueo. Some other Monarch Butterflies winter in Cuba or California. These long flights pose great danger for the butterflies, especially from predators." (from Mexico travel)
