Baja Mexico for Spring Break 2011
Baja has long been one of the most popular destinations for North American spring breakers. There’s no shortage of gorgeous beaches and nightly entertainment and the prices in Baja cities are affordable for college students, even those on a budget. Most Baja destinations can be driven to in just a day (maybe two for Cabo), so you don’t have to spend big bucks on a plane ticket. Since Baja is in the Mexican free zone, you won’t need a permit for your car.
All you need is Mexican auto insurance for your car, which you can purchase online, and you are good to go. Here are some of the most popular spring break destinations in Baja.
