A Gastronomic Safari in Mexico

By Linda Tancs

Ensenada is one of the oldest municipalities in Baja California, Mexico. What’s new is the Baja Med gastronomic concept, the result of a blend of influences from Mexican, Mediterranean and oriental cuisines. Embraced by chefs and food cart vendors alike, it combines Mexican ingredients such as chicharrón and cotija cheese with Mediterranean olive oil and Asian lemongrass. If your taste buds are less adventurous, try a traditional dish like abalone tiradito. Whatever you choose, you’ll want to pair it with a wine from the Guadalupe Valley, gateway to the wine route.

Baja Tourism

By Linda Tancs

With tourism reportedly halved in Tijuana due to kidnappings and other misdeeds, it might be easy to forget about the assets of the rest of the state of Baja California in northwest Mexico. Located at the northern end of the Baja California peninsula, the area is rife with activities for landlubbers and seafarers alike. Just 20 minutes south from Tijuana you’ll find the beaches of Rosarito. Or go a little farther inland for some golf at one of two resorts in Ensenada. If it’s white-knuckle action you crave, then why not take in a bullfight at Mexicali? A few hours’ drive away is the port of San Felipe, a fisherman’s delight. There may be a 120 things to do in Tijuana, but the rest of the state is a peninsular jewel in the crown.
