The 5 Best Baja Trips for Backpackers

Click your way through our adventure guide to Baja California, Mexico.

The best way to see more of Baja? Pack in more mileage. This route covers a lot of ground (and water), but crafty paddlers will think it’s worth it for the mix of geology, sea life, and swimming. Starting in Loreto, paddle down the coast of Baja (the 20-mile detour around Isla San Jose is worth it) to reach La Paz, where you can camp on a white-sand beach beneath the Sierra de la Giganta mountains. Here, embrace your indecisiveness and throw some hiking into the mix.

Trip type: Paddling and hiking | Distance: 155 miles | Length: 10 days

Take your pick of hikes and paddles (and hike-and-paddles) in this adventurer’s paradise south of the border. No matter where you end up, white-sand beaches, water warmer than the air, and quiet waterfront campsites are all but guaranteed. Backpacker
