Living in San Diego, we’re just a short drive to our neighbors on the other side of the border. Jacob and I are both born and raised in San Diego and both grew up going to Mexico on a regular bases. I remember being only 8 years old walking across the border with my parents for the sole purpose of getting tacos.
There are SO many amazing places to go all over Mexico, and we have been to quite a lot. This trip, however, was our first time to Valle de Guadelupe. This valley is only a short hour and a half drive from the border and is known as Baja’s wine country.
WHERE TO STAY
We always use Airbnb whenever we travel, and going to Baja is no different. We stayed at Oeno Wine Resort in a cute little bungalow that was very modern and clean. The staff was incredibly friendly and super helpful with whatever we needed! We would absolutely stay here again.
WHAT TO DO
It’s Baja’s wine country….so drink some wine!! We went to 3 different wineries and 1 brewery and all were amazing.
Finca la Carrodilla
This winery was soooo beautiful!!! I loved the modern feel mixed with lush greenery surrounding. They were setting up for a wedding down below and it made me want to get married all over again….HINT HINT ALL YOU BRIDES!!!!
Adobe Guadelupe Tasting Room
THIS winery was my favorite. Classic Mexican feel at a gorgeous old adobe complete with a food truck for tapas. We spent most of our day here walking around the vineyards and sipping delicious wine. 10/10 would recommend.
This winery is also gorgeous. We went right at sunset and enjoyed an incredible dinner with our wine. Perfect way to end the night!!
Aquas Termales Hot Spring
It’s no secret that Jacob is the king of hot springs. He has a huge curated map of hot springs from all over the world, and Mexico is no different. We went to this hot spring for sunrise for a morning soak before it got to warm out.
It’s about a 20 minute hike to get to the springs and can be found next to a sole palm tree. It costs 50 pesos per person and make sure you have a car that can tackle some off roading because you have to drive through a decent sized creek.
