Southern California is a little known destination of dramatic, isolated seascapes, volcanic wildernesses and historic mission towns. No, we’re not talking about the Hollywood Hills. We’re referring to the real Southern California: Baja, the Mexican peninsula which extends 800 miles into the Pacific. Most travelers never make it past the ongoing party in Tijuana, but those willing to venture further will find a sparsely populated and virtually unknown paradise for lovers of unparalleled surfing, hiking and relaxing. For history buffs, Central Baja is home to the continent’s only prehistoric cave paintings. Those in search of the perfect beach getaway will find it in Los Cabos, where towering rock formations accent the soft sands of blissfully crowd-free beaches. Or play the connoisseur in Baja’s own California wine country — Valle de Guadalupe, a peaceful region of small country inns and laid-back tasting rooms.
