Baja Mexico October/ November 2019

Anyone interested in a Baja Mexico trip October/ November 2019. We have a 2016 Escape 19 towed by a Ram 1500 diesel. We have flown to the Baja a few times but have never driven down.

Baja Mexico

We are planning to head into Baja Mexico in Jan 2019 for a couple of months so can't join you...we have spent 9 winters in southern Baja in years past and have thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and the people. Move away from border towns in a timely manner and drive cautiously and NEVER at night...enjoy!

Oct and Nov are much warmer that Jan, the Sea of Cortez will be swimable with temps near 80°F in the ocean. By Jan and Feb the water is considerably cooler. Personally, we prefer the Mexican mainland. Most RV parks along the Pacific coast are full of Canadians.

Hmmm, that should start some interesting banter.

If we were to go again this winter, it would not be that early, likely after the Quartzsite rally in mid February. Though we loved the Baja and would go again, thinking of possibly going down the mainland this year. Mexicans are wonderful hosts we have found.

Hi Jim,
Really liking seeing you back on this site. Hope that means you are doing well. Don't want to bend this thread but I too am eyeballing mainland Mexico..... depends on fund$. I have not taken a trailer but have flown to Guadalajara and rented cars then headed for the coast. Nothing but the best of experiences to report … however that was a few years ago. I wish to do it again as I have never been treated with anything other then utmost most kindness and generosity. If anyone wants to hear more, I will write more.

This is something I could be interested in. It will depend upon whether I get a camp hosting position. I like the idea of caravanning with someone as I'm a single woman. (I happen to like the fact that the coast is full of Canadians.) I'm in Point Roberts, Washington until September 19th. Let's keep in touch.
