Viva Mexico! For Giving Us Tequila


If a drink can describe a country, then Tequila describes Mexico. Tequila is only one type of mezcal, which is the name of any distilled alcohol made from the agave plant. What makes tequila different from other mezcalss is its adherence to the strict standards set by the Tequila Regulatory Council. Tequila was first produced in the 16th century near the location of the city of Tequila which was not officially established until 1656. The Aztec’s peoples had previously made a fermented beverage from the agave plant which they called octli (later, and more popularly called pulque), long before the Spanish arrived in 1521. When the Spanish conquistadors ran out of their own brandy, they began to distill this agave drink to produce North America’s first indigenous distilled spirit.

The tequila that is popular today was first mass-produced in the early 1800s in Guadalajara, Mexico. 1800 Tequila is marketed today in commemoration of the year in which the first successfully aged Tequila was produced. This premium Tequila is a tribute to the earliest master Tequila blenders.

Baja 1000

Baja 1000


Baja 1000 is an off road race that takes place on Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula during a full moon, to aid the racers with natural illumination. The annual race officially started in 1967 (it used to be an informal venue for dirt bike racing), and originally went from Tijuana, Baja California, to La Paz, Baja California Sur. Now it starts in Ensenada, and runs for some 70 miles to the south. It is usually held the weekend before the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.

Surfing


Look at a map of the Pacific Ocean and you will see that the Peninsula of Baja California is a unique piece of geography. Baja jumps out into the Pacific Ocean and is exposed to storm generated swells that can come from the North Pacific during our winter season and the South Pacific in their winter. The swell window for the Cape Region of Baja extends approximately 300 degrees Northwest at winter all the way around the compass through South to approximately 130 degrees Southeast in summer. This is a huge area of ocean that extends all the way south to the icepack of Antarctica.

Best Places to Surf Baja


Baja Malibu

Baja Malibu

Wallow in connect-the-dots tube rides at this beach break 15 miles south of the border. Drop in, watch the lip heave, and fly out to the hoots of your buddies on the shoulder. Not for beginners, this potent wave works summer and winter, and it’s best at medium to low tide. Take the Baja Malibu exit from the toll road and park on the dead-end street on the north side of the Baja Malibu housing development.

Calafia

Six miles south of Rosarito Beach on the free road (Old Highway 1), this right point reels on a south. It’s worth checking during a big north, too. Booties will help you painlessly navigate Calafia’s sharp rocks. You’ll surf beneath the terraces of the Calafia Resort, which offers ocean-view dining and lodging. To reserve a wave-front room for approximately $55 per night, call 011-52-661-612-1581.

Salsipuedes

Salsipuedes, which boasts a right point and a bowly reef peak, has the best camping and gnarliest access road north of Ensenada. Both waves break on any swell direction, but the point needs six to eight feet to work. Five bucks a night gets you camping in a grove of olive trees that feels like it’s a million miles from the nearest fax machine. Located 51 miles south of the border on the toll road, take the Salsipuedes exit onto the tortuous dirt road to the beach. Leave if you can (sal, si puedes) when it’s raining,  it’s not worth checking out if the surf is low.

San Miguel Surf

San Miguel

A crowded, thrillingly racy point break, San Miguel is one of Baja’s premier waves. This right-hander is best during a west or northwest swell. It’s more hollow but more sectioned at low tide. The San Miguel turnoff is immediately after the last toll booth before Ensenada, 61 miles from the border. Pitch a tent on the beach for $10 a night. For the same cost, RVs can plug into one of 30 hookups. Hot showers take the grunge out of camping here. Call 011-52-646-174-7948 for information. There’s also a bar and restaurant on the point, but it’s worth driving the eight miles south for Ensenada’s culinary riches.

Punta San Jose Surf

Punta San Jose

True Baja begins south of Ensenada. To taste its desolate beauty, spend a few days at Punta San Jose, a series of reef breaks that become one sweeping right when a swell fires. It’s best on a south or a huge west swell, when the prevailing wind is offshore. To get there, drive south from Ensenada through the verdant Santo Tomas wine-growing valley. Twenty-nine miles beyond Ensenada, turn west onto a dirt road at the town of Santo Tomas. (If you need food or water, buy it here, because there’s nothing but surf and star-filled skies at Punta San Jose.) Fourteen miles from Santo Tomas, bear right at a fork in the road and drive 10 miles to a lighthouse. Local fishermen collect $5 to camp, and will sell you fresh lobster for about the same sum.
