Time is a hard thing to take with you to Mexico. They don't go much by it and it will be hard for you to, not knowing what obstacles you might run across. It took two days to get a pinion gear repaired in our truck one time....after we found someone to do it. The roads flooded on us once on the mainland and we had to camp for another two days....not Mexico but last winter in Guatemala the country ran out of cash money while we were there...that took two weeks to straighten out.... due to a huge bank embezzlement deal and a problem in France where they have their money printed. I guess someone burned the old bills before they got the new ones at the same time the printer got the wrong paper and had to reorder. Point being, leave your watch at home and give yourself as much time as you can. If you can't take time, just explore a small area. That's my take on it and I am sure there are plenty of other views. I think Baja is a great first driving trip into Mexico. It is very easy there.
In fact we are thinking about doing a 2 week trip with motorcycles down to La Paz, across on the ferry to the mainland and then back north home sometime this winter....2 weeks is plenty of time for that...esp. having been both side of that route before.
Have a great time....I know you will.

I remember you telling me about going out back through Cocos. Next time we head that way l'll get some directions from you to those gorgeous beaches. Now thats the way to do Baja.....while there still is a baja to do. And more great pix thanks.

If you choose the latter be sure to eat at El Jardin in San Quintin. You head out toward the bay and El Molino but watch for the signs pretty quick to El Jardin. It very well could be the best restaurant in Baja. San Quintin can be a bit edgy so dont be driving there at night which incidentally is good advice for the entire pennisula.
