Baja Trip (or driving south to flee the cold). Episode 1

February 18, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well, we made all of 125 miles today. We had to do a silly dance to get our FMMs stamped by Mexican imigracion. Went through the border at Tecate, then had to find somewhere close by to park, in order to walk back over the border into the USA, then walk back into Mexico to get to the immigration office???? Last time I came through Tecate (back in 2003 on my way to San Felipe and south on a motorcycle), I was able to stop at immigration on the way through.

Anyhow, a beautiful drive south to Ensenada via the Valle de Guadeloupe (wine country, and now very touristy). On the way, we were snowed on (actually sleet), the temps got down to 40 F, eventually to rise to a relatively balmy 60F.

We decided to hotel it and headed to Estero Beach Resort, and they had a special offer – $100 US per night. I don’t think so, so we found a perfectly adequate room at Hotel Bambu, a mile from there at 700 pesos for the night (about $36).

We hiked it to Tacos El Original, and I had one each of carne asada and adobada tacos, and B had a carne asada tostada. Delish!
