Baja California South Bound Winter 2020 Motorcycle Tour Tour Itinerary
Welcome to Los Angeles. On the eve of this incredible journey you will meet up with your fellow riders for an orientation meeting at the hotel as we prepare to ride through some of the greatest and undisturbed desert roads left in North America. Your tour guide will provide you a thorough overview of what to expect in the coming days and answer any last minute questions you may have. I’m sure there may also be cold drink or two to be shared.
After our welcome breakfast we pick up our motorcycles from EagleRider. Shortly after we are on the road cruising south along the California coastline to the border at Tijuana, Mexico. About an hour after we have entered Mexico we will reach our final destination for today, the bustling port town of Ensenada. Tonight we will enjoy a delicious gourmet dinner made fresh from the local catch. Watch the sunset over Ensenada Bay and it won’t take you long to realize you are on the cusp of something special.
We head south on Mexico Highway 1 leaving the busy border towns behind as we ride south. We dive deeper into Baja where Cirio trees and giant Cardon cacti begin to appear alongside the road. We enter the Vizcaino Desert, one of the most fascinating desert regions on this continent, and experience expansive views of boulder formations, rugged hills and dense desert vegetation. We arrive in Catavina just in time to watch the desert sunset behind huge boulders and Cardon cacti. We have a long ride tomorrow so be sure to get a good night’s rest.
Today we cross the state line from Baja Norte into Baja Sur. You will notice a change in landscape as we ride over several 3,000 foot summits, past flat topped volcanic cones and cactus covered hills into the charming pueblo San Ignacio, an authentic desert oasis located at the bottom of a wide arroyo with date palms and a natural spring fed pond where we overnight.
Ahead of us this morning is the massive ‘Volcan Las Tres Virgenes’ which tells us the origin of recent lava flows around us. We descend Devils Grade, seven miles of switchbacks that take us down to the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. Winding along the shores beautiful Bahia Conception, one further scenic delight of Baja California, with deep-blue waters, volcanic islands and isolated beaches. In the afternoon we reach Loreto which is the oldest Spanish settlement along the West Coast. The town offers a picturesque central plaza, shopping and a selection of excellent restaurants.
Today we continue through the desert on Hwy 1 through Ciudad Constitucion where we stop for lunch. Our afternoon ride will take us east across the broad desert expanse over to the coast of the Sea of Cortez and Loreto. Loreto was the departure point from which Junipero Serra launched his northward quest in 1769 to establish a chain of missions in Alta California.
Under the shadow of Cerro del Venado we roll into San Jose del Cabo and down the coast of Bahia San Lucas which was a favorite hiding place for pirates who laid in wait for Spanish treasure ships in the 16th and 17th century. Today our destination is the popular resort town of Cabo San Lucas and we are here to enjoy it all. Just before arriving in Cabo we get a view of ‘Land’s End,' the southernmost tip of the Baja peninsula!
