RV Parks in Baja, California

by Phyllis Greene

Baja California, Mexico, is a long, narrow peninsula separated from the Mexican mainland by the Sea of Cortes, and bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean. The peninsula begins at Tijuana, just south of the U.S. border, and extends about 1,000 miles through desert and beaches to its southern tip at Cabo San Lucas. The Sea of Cortez alone has over 800 species of fish, making Baja a paradise for sport fishing and scuba diving. RVs are a common sight throughout the Baja peninsula.
