    Driving Advice

  • In Ensenada roads are quite well maintained. Highway #1 --the Baja California's "backbone" which intersects the peninsula from north to south-- is safer, quicker and picturesque.

    However, some secondary roads have speed bumps which at times are not indicated clearly, or have potholes and uneven surfaces.

  • Do not travel on inter-town roads after dark and especially during the rainy season.

  • When driving don't forget to carry your driver's license or permit with you. Also carry the vehicle registration, insurance certificate and your passport. Only show these documents to authorized officials.
