Baja California’s busiest and arguably best time to visit is during the winter months, particularly from December to March. This is the time of year when temperatures are in their 20s on a fairly consistent basis and the climate is much more steady. It is also a great time to visit because of the awesome grey whales flocking to the area during the winter months. Baja California is also a popular summer holiday destination, so any time of year that you book you can expect to have a great time.
As just mentioned, one of the best and most unique things to do in Baja California is to do some whale watching. The region is home to several species of whale including clue, humpback, sperm and grey. Grey whales arrive to breed in the lagoons on the west side of the peninsula during winter, so you don’t want to miss out on this once in a lifetime chance to see them! Water activities are also hugely popular in Baja California. Diving and snorkelling schools are situated all along the coastline and if you are extremely brave, you can even do some great white shark cave diving just off Guadalupe Island- rather you than us though!
Because the region of Baja California is so big with around 17 major towns/cities, there is definitely no shortage of amazing places to stay. All-inclusive resorts, luxury resorts, villas, apartments, B&Bs, hostels. You name it, and Baja California has it. The same is true of the dining scene in this region of Mexico, with plenty of superb restaurants situated in each of the resorts here. Baja California is famous for its fish tacos and some of the best are said to reside in San Felipe and Ensenada. Much of the menus in this region aren’t designed for international mass tourism, so expect to try some delicious local dishes that you wished you had tried before!
