Baja California Norte

Home to the quintessential border town of Tijuana and a cultural melting pot with an exciting regional cuisine in the making

The northernmost state on Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, Baja California Norte neighbors California to the south and is home to the quintessential border town with San Diego, Tijuana. It is inhabited by a melting pot of people from all over Mexico and from around the world with an exciting regional cuisine in the making. The state’s semi-dry Mediterranean like climate makes it ideal for vineyards in the up-and-coming Valle de Guadalupe wine-making region.
