Making Memories

It's the holiday season upon us. Christmas is passing and the New Year's is almost upon us. What to expect for New Years Eve in Mexico? One thing you can definitely count on for your New Year's celebration is warm weather. Doesn't warm, balmy night sound so inviting? It's party time in Mexico!
San Felipe Baja is no different. Small private parties will be on the beach, bars will have live music and celebrations. Or why don't you make your own party?
Vacation rentals are the best, because you can easily have a party. Forget about the big resorts or small hotel rooms, make some memories in your vacation rental. You don't have to just celebrate with your family or partner, meet new friends or invite the whole neighborhood block. Another great thing about a vacation rental is you can be as load as you want. Crank up the music, fly open those windows and party down for the night! If you are near the shore, see if it's safe and of course allowed, light some fireworks and light up the sky. Happy New Year, San Felipe!

Glorious Food

San Felipe Baja has so many delicious restaurants. They are famous for their jumbo blue shrimp. They are so famous for the shrimp that they have an annual festival dedicated to the shrimp. Here are some of the delectable cuisines in town.

Driving vs. Flying

Usually when you vacation, road trip is not really appealing especially if you have kids. But in this case driving to San Felipe could be way more convenient, that is if you live in a nearby state. Other than crossing the Mexican border, as that could be tedious and long, it then could be a breeze once crossed. Wouldn't it be nice to have your car on vacation instead a rental? Yes, San Felipe is not a big city to need a car, but there are some excursions that you would need a car to participant in. Like riding the sand buggies in the dunes or horseback riding. Or maybe while vacationing in San Felipe you might visit the hot water springs or take a dip at other beaches from afar.


Flying to San Felipe could be a hassle. First you need to get a ride to the airport from your hometown then once you arrive in Baja Mexico you have to either rent a car in a foreign terrrtory or find a shuttle. Or maybe you reserved a shuttle before leaving. Don't forget you have to tip the driver, and they see you as a rich American or foreigner, so they expect a high tip. Once you arrive in San Felipe how do you plan to get around? There are so many factors to consider if flying into Mexico. So, you might reorganize your thoughts and take a road trip instead to San Felipe.

Little Escapes

Living in San Felipe is Heaven. How would you like a little more heaven? Hop in the car and take a road trip. There is a great called Gonzaga Bay. It’s like a 3 hour trip from San Felipe but so worth it. Don’t forget your picnic lunch, beach toys, swimsuit, and company. Gonzaga Bay is a great little spot to find total relaxation. Not many people have discovered this little paradise. And if you are real adventurous; you can camp overnight. Gonzaga Bay is a couple degrees warmer and the water is crystal clear.
It would best to take a SUV on your road trip because the terrain or road is kind of rugged; otherwise a regular sedan will slow down your trip. Otherwise the drive has splendid views of the coast. Make sure you leave early; so you can enjoy the day and still arrive home while it’s still light.

Legends usually come from some heard something or someone a long time ago told the story about something or some place. Legends are made from history. Sometimes legends are inscribed in books, stories from the local people or found on cave walls.

Why is it so special? Baja wanted the giant cactus to be in the World Fair to be admired for it's height and greatness as a natural plant. The giant cactus grew so big that when they wanted to move it to bring to the World Fair it was impossible at first. The giant cactus stood 45 feet tall. They tried to immobilize it with a heavy duty crane but nothing would move that plant. They were out of luck. The world fair in Spain finally received the famous giant cactus, but San Felipe will never forget how long it took to up-root it and send it across the seas. It did eventually returned, never looking the same.

Whale Watching

Probably every person that has the opportunity to go whale watching in San Felipe has many and different stories of their great adventure. Their's a great little company that takes you out on the water to watch the whales play in the great, big body of water we call the ocean. This little tour boat is called a panga. You actually get trained to go out on the water by yourself if you are trained biologists. Otherwise someone takes you out that is experienced in large bodies of water where big gray whales spy hop. Spy-hopping is when the whale peeks its head out on the surface of the water, like they are saying hello.

Whale watching is very serine. Whales are very gentle and smart mammals. It's a very exciting moment when these big creatures swim so close to the pangas (boats), it's hard to stay calm. To go whale watching in San Felipe it's around $45 per person, but the expense is worth every minute at gazing upon these magnificent mammals. You have a chance to whale watch, do it, it's definitely worth it!

Small Town Vibe

In the past San Felipe was once known as a fisherman village; it's now a hot spot but still has the small town vibe. Once Los Cabos Baja became over loaded with people and too expensive, San Felipe became the new hot spot of Baja Mexico. San Felipe is everything a small town represents. The community works together, has small local events, and neighbors know each other.

Walking is the only way to travel when going shopping or popping into the library or market. Bikes are great too, biking around town. Small towns are great for not wasting gas and living the simple life. The great thing about San Felipe is you have the small town feeling but still have many events and activities to enjoy. Plus San Felipe has many bonuses offering the desert, mountains and ocean. Now that is paradise!

Vacation Alone

Probably men go on vacations alone more than women. However, women can have as much fun if not a better time than men. The hotel staff would probably open the doors for a single woman or she would probably get a lot more attention from the staff, make sure she was taken care of.
If vacationing alone, get to know the locals wherever you are visiting. Getting to know the locals, your vacation will become a lot more fascinating. You will learn about the great eateries or maybe a new dance club. Locals always know the great little spots to go.
Vacationing alone, can be as fun and exciting as if you were vacationing with friends or your partner. You can meet new friends, relax, hang out at the beach, swim in the crystal blue ocean, or go horseback riding. Maybe even find another companion that is alone on vacation and hang out together. Anything can happen when you are vacationing alone; take it with stride.

Desert Racing

Have you ever gone to desert race? It can be very exciting. There are dirt bikes everywhere, dust and lots of people. This is not just a man sport, there are plenty of girl dirt bike racers, too. The terrain is very rough and the racers have to be smart in how they maneuver around. Two racers cannot race side by side because the dust will force one of the riders to separate. Basically each rider is on their own in the race, yes they are racing against one another but one rider can go for miles without seeing another rider for long periods of time. It's just the rider and the terrain in front of them. A rider can be riding behind another and suddenly break away because they found a better way to get around their competitor.
The older the age group the harder the terrain. These desert racers have to be very knowledgeable of the hundred acres of Mojave Desert if they want to win. The terrains become more difficult for the older groups to ride: there are drops, steep hills or bumpy trials. Not only do the older rides need to know the desert terrain like the back of their hand but they also need to know how to ride in any kind of weather. When it rains the desert becomes like mud, but the race must go on. This is a very exciting and entertaining event for everyone in San Felipe to enjoy.

What Documents to Have when Renting Temporary Home?

The first thing you need to do once you decide on a vacation rental in San Felipe Mexico is a Mexico vacation rental agreement. This is probably the most important document you will need in Mexico, other than your passport or ID. This agreement goes over the specifics of renting temporary homes on foreign land. If you are using a realtor to help you find a vacation home than they will provide this agreement. It’s very important that you know about this agreement and probably good to go through a license realtor. The shady, not licensed realtors may not know or care to give you this information, and later you may get in trouble with the Mexican law. You don’t want any headaches on your vacation, so be smart and always ask questions whenever renting. Ask and you shall receive.

The agreement is basically another type of contract but easier to understand and all they need is a simple “yes” or “no”. Not like a legal rental contract, where it has all the details about the rental and clauses. Basically the agreement is saying the landlord or property management can cancel the reservation at any time before the transaction and that you may lose your deposit. Again like any agreement, read and ask before signing anything.
