Baja California see + do

Most Baja visitors head straight for Los Cabos and never see the wild side of the peninsula's kayaking, hiking, and surfing spots. A-list celebs zip down from LA in private jets to celebrate birthdays (John Travolta's 50th) and seek inspiration (Kenny Chesney's "Beer in Mexico"). Sightings are so frequent celebs have to hide from each other for total privacy. Airports are few along the peninsula and rental sedans, Hummers, and Harleys a must for exploring missions, oases, and beaches. You have to drive or sail from border to tip to fully appreciate Baja's soulful beauty, but you can quickly sample capital cities and resort regions by flying into international airports in Los Cabos, La Paz, or Loreto.
