Traveler 8811, the way you speak about Mexico only shows your lack of knowledge and culture, it's kind of ironic you speak of intelligence on your review. Baja is home to some of the most beautiful sceneries in the world. That "dry wasteland consisting on only rocks and cactus" you describe, is a World Heritage Site that makes you fell in love with the ocean view, the immense night stars, the giant cacti that can reach heights over 65 ft., the giant rock formations, the canyons, etc. You can also find some of the world's most beautiful beaches, like Mulege, where the water is crystal clear and you can adventure several hundred feet into the ocean and the water will be 3-4 feet deep. Called the "aquarium of the world", the Gulf of California is home to a great diversity of marine life, where you can find giant Manta rays, Whale sharks, Sea turtles, Humboldt squids, and numerous kinds of fish and crustaceans. Baja is the perfect place for ecoturism, you have beautiful spots for camping, swimming, kayaking, hiking, off road crossing, etc. We don't have giant resorts full of concrete floors, fake gardens, and giant golf courses that waste great amounts of water because we don't want them. If you are like mr. TRAVELER 8811 and can't handle a dirt road or sleeping in a tent without AC, you can stay home and watch a travel channel, because this really isn't for you.

Anywhere you go in Baja California Mexico is a disappointment. Baja Sur Babo San Lucas is a mecca for expatriates looking for a new life, however, it is just another dirty dusty Mexican town, with a few modern condos and homes built very cheaply with cement block. The houses are hot, with very high electric bills. The expat community quickly finds after purchasing homes here, that there is NOTHING to do. LaPaz is even worse, much more drty and dusty than Cabo, very bad drivers, very lazy and slow services, stop signs on nearly every block anywhere you go. Go north to the Parque Nacional and it is a hot, dusty, dry wasteland consisting on only rocks and cactus. The baches to the north of Loreto are very beautiful, but crime is prevalent there with regard to assault, robbery and poor food/services. The 26 hour drive from LaPaz to SanDiego is probably the most dangerous road I have ever driven. Very narrow, requires close concentration every second to avoid drivers on your side of the road and being sideswiped by busses and trucks. I have lived in Mexico, working here, not by choice, and all I can say is: I have been all over this country and it is expensive, the people generally have to concern for others especially on the highways. The mainland, where I lived is now becoming hazardous even to US tourists due to the increasing drug violence, car bombs have arrived to mecixo, they found an American tourist shot to death near Acupulco, a grenade was thrown into a bar frequented by tourists. The highwaus have spped bumps placed everythere, when you slow down for them, the criminals jump out of hiding with automatic weapons to rob, you, your car. In summary, Mexico, is a big lie, expensive, dirty, hot, poor quality everywhere. Save your money, go north to the beautiful us and canadian national parks, at least they have trees and intelligence.
