#DoBaja: Win a Trip to Baja and Follow My Ecotourism Adventure

As I have mentioned before, after a multi-year hiatus, Romeo and I have started venturing back into Baja.  Our first Baja adventure was joining a Baja food tour.  We then traveled to Tijuana for a dinner at Misión 19, had a weekend getaway in Rosarito, staying at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, and then crossed the border again to spend an afternoon drinking wine at AlXimia in the Valle de Guadalupe.

I’ll be heading back down to Baja again, but instead of a food adventure, this time will be an ecotourism adventure in Baja’s biggest national park, Sierra de San Pedro Mártir National Park, and an aquatic adventure in San Quintin.  I’m so excited to be exploring and learning more about the nature side of Baja, as my personal opinion is far too many people travel to Baja strictly to drink and party.  My goal for our continued trips into Baja is to be able to share with you the culture, food, and nature of Baja, rather than just the best place to get a Corona.
