Guerrero Negro to Bahía Concepción
South of the border between Baja California (Norte) and Baja California Sur, a variety of Mexican and gringo communities invite exploration.
This area begins with the saltworks town of Guerrero Negro, where travelers restock supplies, get on the Internet, and spend the night to wait for daylight driving hours.
Back on the Gulf coast, the river town of Mulegé and white-sand beaches along Bahía Concepción have become seasonal homes for American and Canadian snowbirds. And deep in the interior of the Sierra de San Francisco and the Sierra de Guadalupe, more historic missions and mysterious rock art sites await.
