From the hectic streets of Tijuana to the quiet beaches of the south, the Baja California peninsula is split up into two states, Baja California (the Northern part) and Baja California Sur (the southern part). Separating them are not only hundreds of miles of desert but completely different vibes. Tijuana and Mexicali are bustling busy cities which take advantage of their border locations and have a gritty urban feel. As you go south things slow down substantially, perking up a little again in La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur.
