Back to Baja!

In 2006, I was lucky enough to land a freelance job marketing for a resort in San Felipe, Mexico. Located along the Sea of Cortez, San Felipe is a quaint little fishing town with mouth-watering seafood restaurants, cozy beach villas, and friendly locals who ensure expatriates and tourists alike feel welcome. San Felipe is only two hours south of the Mexicali border, which made it easy to head down there for countless long weekends. San Felipe holds a special place in my heart. From its breathtaking views, savory Mexican food, and gracious community, San Felipe is a destination everyone needs to visit.

My client, San Felipe Marina Resort and Spa, has been owned and operated by the Ramos family since 1992. Today, the hotel still boasts a steady flow of visitors looking for an authentic Mexican experience. During my numerous trips, we would swim, read on the beach, stroll downtown along the malecon, frequent Al’s Bar, and otherwise do what you do in Mexico; relax and enjoy…and eat!
San Felipe isn’t Los Cabos or Puerta Vallarta.  During busy season, Cabo and Puerto Vallarta are crowded and teeming with tourists. Even during off-season, San Felipe is relaxed yet encompasses a lively spirit that is hard to deny. Visitors feel less like tourists and more like locals. It also just got easier to get there. Most recently, the Mexican Federal Highway 5 was completed and is now a broad, divided, four-lane highway where a narrow 2-lane highway once was.

I am thrilled to share that I have been retained again to consult for the San Felipe Marina Resort and Spa, and I look forward to more long weekends exploring Baja. Now, I have a husband and 15 month old son who will be joining me on these trips down to Mexico. We all look forward to escaping there often. Adventures await!
