Day 1. San Diego - Ensenada - San Quintin.
ACROSS THE BORDER
Board the motor coach at a designated site in San Diego. Cross one of the busiest borders in the world, learn about its multiple activities and enter Mexico. Stop at a panadería (bakery) to choose a freshly baked pan dulce (sweet roll) to enjoy with a cup of coffee. The scenic road to Ensenada offers breathtaking views on the Pacific Ocean. A melting pot of adventurers seeking fortunes in nearby mines established the city of Ensenada on the shores of beautiful Todos Santos Bay. Today it is a pleasant city offering a Mediterranean climate, friendly people and a historical ambiance. Drive through its older streets and have lunch. Continue south through one of the peninsula’s most important agricultural areas where indigenous people have migrated from remote areas of Mexico to work as farm laborers. Make a stop in San Vicente to visit a small Community and end the day in San Quintín. The hotel fronts a wide-open beach. Meet fellow participants, get to know your group leader and review the upcoming adventures while enjoying margaritas at a pre-dinner gathering.
