Northern Baja/Mexico

Introducing Northern Baja

Tijuana, Mexicali and Tecate form the northern border of an area known as La Frontera (not the border line itself), which extends as far south as San Quintín on the west and San Felipe on the east. Recently, the Ruta del Vino (between Ensenada and Tecate) has gained Napa Valley–like fame for its boutique, award-winning wines. Though northern Baja’s border cities and beaches are undeniably hedonistic, Tijuana and Mexicali are major manufacturing centers, and the area is a hot retirement spot for both Canadian and US snowbirds.
