First off I want to say hello to everyone here. This is my first post so I wish to ask some questions about driving to Cabo San Lucas since that will be my way of getting there.
I just want to ask the people that have made this trek if there is anything in particular I have to watch out for. I understand the usual high alert and street smarts we have to use while driving in Mexico but I was wondering if there is any major detours recommended or areas to avoid at all costs. I will be leaving from Los Angeles with my fiance in a mid-size sedan and I plan to stop at San Quintin, Guerrero Negro, Loreto, then finally arriving at Cabo. I am planning to make this a road trip that is on my bucket list so I will be in the peninsula for almost a full three weeks. Also, any recommended things to do at my stops before arriving at Cabo? I plan to dedicate at least one day to each of them going to Cabo and going back from Cabo.
How is the drive? I have talked to about five people that have done the drive and they said it is a drive of a lifetime. The furthest south I have driven is Puerto Nuevo, which is only about 26 miles (42 km) south of the boarder. I have seen a lot of the driving via street view using Google Maps but I would love some input from you brave and adventurous souls that have done the drive.
