I have been going to Baja for twenty five years, drove it four times, delivering a van, a boat and a trailer to the truest best friend I have ever had. I agree, the Mexican people, as a whole, are some of the sweetest folks I ever met. Drove it once with my wife, just to show her one of the most beautiful, fantastic places I have ever been. I have never felt more alive in my life than when I was driving the Baja. That being said, I would never, ever do it again unless it was in a caravan of at least two groups. The juice just ain't worth the squeeze. Way to dangerous. La Paz is my favorite city in all of Mexico but I haven't been there since the cartel lit the place up, three or four years ago. Way, way to many murders. I have a panga and a truck down there.and spend months at a time on The East Cape. Things have changed in Baja Sur, ask anyone who spends any time there.

Keep your cash hidden and always carry $20/40 in your pocket for that pesky popo that will sometimes pull you over

This is a huge prob for me...
If the police are willing and expected to break the law in what many consider an acceptable way what is to stop them from going to far..
Where is the line drawn...?

Kinda funny how some of these same guys that think cops robbing people is something they can deal with yet someone smoking weed on a boat is a non starter and deserves harsh punishment...

LA bay suffered huge losses in sport fishing / tourism and ex pat retiree residences during the 2006-2009 baja narco traffico wars. It has taken it nearly a decade to recover these losses..........this event is really bad for bahia.

What happened ?
According to what I have read, two Americans and their dog were killed. Very sad. If true, the locals/police need to find the culprits and deal with these fuckers.

Heading down to BOLA soon. I saw some articles of increased crime in Baja. Knock on wood, never had an issue.... but anybody notice this lately??
No matter how you look at , might rethink things, shit will hit the fan for a while, elections up here, mainland criminals have less affect on Pacific side. Sad for locals, sad for victims,

There's been alot more shootings and gun violence lately in San Jose del Cabo, and not just among the Narcos. Last year, a tourist lady got hit by crossfire in front of the Mega while jogging. Everyone knows about the beach murders in front of the Palmilla launch beach amid Cartell machine-gun fire...But lately alot more gun assaults on ex-Pats and tourists...

You got to love the post "Ive been driving in Baja for the past 150 years and never had a problem". Guess what, News flash, times have changed, just ask the two Americans who were murdered in the home along with their pet dog from the thiefs who were attempting to steal their boat parked on their property. And then Google Americans murdered in Baja for 2018/2017 and then you'll see. So stop with the "I've been driving bla,bla,bla,........
