SAN FELIPE MEXICO TRAVEL TIPS

Once nothing more than a small fishing village, San Felipe has transformed into a notable Mexican tourist destination. Located in Baja California, San Felipe is sandwiched between the San Pedro Martir Mountains and the Sea of Cortez. The small town offers both beach fun and rugged adventure and is popular with campers, retirees and college students. Points of Interest The Gateway to the Sea of Cortez, a pair of plaster and metal arches forming an "M," is at the entrance to San Felipe. From El Machorro, a towering crest on Punta de San Felipe, you can see all the way from the San Pedro Martir Mountains to the Sea of Cortez. Nearly 50 miles south of town is the Valley of the Giants, a forest of cardon cacti, the largest cacti in the world. Activities San Felipe has one of the most severe tide changes in the world, exposing up to a mile of beach at certain times, which make the area prime for beach combing. From March to October, anglers take to the seas in hopes of catching grouper, yellow tail, corvina, white sea bass and cabrilla. Other maritime activities, like water skiing, jet skiing, kayaking and hanging on to a speeding "banana boat," are also popular. If the winds are right, which is most often the case in the spring, you might have a chance to windsurf or sail. On land, tourists take advantage of the Mexican desert, which extends almost to the sea. Dirt bikes, ATVs and dune buggies are often the preferred mode of transport in these areas. Accommodations While some of its neighbors have reputations as resort towns, San Felipe is a destination for the camper. Over 50 campgrounds and RV parks line the beaches to the north and south of town; there are even some in town. The town also has resorts, hotels and budget motels. Vacation rentals are a burgeoning market in San Felipe. Dining If you have never tried a fish taco, San Felipe may be the place to do it. Ralph Rubio, owner of Rubio's Fish Taco, has claimed the prototypical fish taco most Americans are familiar with originated in San Felipe. Since this is a seaside town, it is not surprising seafood dominates the local gastronomy. Aside from seafood, San Felipe offers a mix of Mexican, American, Chinese and California cuisine. Getting There and Around San Felipe is 125 miles from the Mexicali portion of the California-Mexico border. Motorists should take Mexico's Federal Highway 5 to reach the town. San Felipe has its own international airport, but it does not offer commercial flights. San Diego, the nearest town with a major airport, is a five-hour drive from San Felipe. Walking or taxis, including water taxis or "pangas," are the main mode of transportation in San Felipe. When to Go "Snowbirds," retirees who spend the cold American months in Mexico, flock to San Felipe between November and March. During the traditional spring break week and Easter week, in March and April, tourists and college students flood San Felipe. By summertime, things slow down, although the temperature rises. While the area has a moderate average temperature, 75 degrees Fahrenheit throughout most of the year, it experiences its share of extremes, sometimes reaching over 100 degrees in the summer and dropping to 40 degrees in the winter. Naturally, spring and fall tend to be the most popular and pleasant months to visit San Felipe.

Great music, very interesting people and lots of room to dance with two dance floors. The outdoor dancefloor is a basketball court by day. It's a blast. Remember to get there early because by 9PM there is a line to get in and you'll be out there forever! Have fun! Oh and take a marker and a stapler because there is a tradition of writing your name on a dollar bill and stapling it to the ceiling! Cool place!

Spring Break College Students Warned to Stay Away from Mexico

Mexican resort towns like Cancun, Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas are major spring break destinations. Hundreds of thousands of college students flock to these beach resorts and other places south of the border to take advantage of cheaper prices and fewer restrictions. But spring break in Mexico might be a little less crowded this year. The Texas Department of Public Safety has issued a statement advising students to avoid Mexico during spring break, with the department’s head saying that continuously escalating drug violence has made it too dangerous, especially for young, inexperienced travelers.

For the most part, tourists have not been targets of drug gangs. However, there have been frequent shootouts between rival gangs, cartel members and Mexican armed forces. The biggest danger for spring break travelers would be getting caught in the crossfire of such gun battles.

The Department of Public Safety’s statement didn’t mince words: “Our safety message is simple: avoid traveling to Mexico during Spring Break and stay alive.” Though the statement focused on Mexico as a whole, Texans are especially concerned about areas near the border that are especially prone to violence and especially easy for tourists to access. The statement specifically mentioned Falcon Lake, a body of water that straddles the border. An American jet skier was killed by a sniper this past summer when he strayed onto the Mexican side of the lake. Authorities believe he was killed by members of a drug gang who mistook him for a rival gang member or law enforcement official. A U.S. Customs agent was also recently attacked and killed in a Mexican town along the Texas border.

In total, 68 people from the U.S. were killed in Mexico last year, most as a result of drug-related violence. Tens of thousands of Mexicans have been killed since authorities began using the army to crackdown on drug gangs. A recent spate of shootings in Juarez, one of Mexico’s most violent cities, lead to the deaths of three people associated with the U.S. Consulate. Recent bloody incidents in Cancun (including several be-headings blamed on cartel enforcers) probably inspired Texas decide to issue a country-wide warning rather than simply focusing on the border areas.

Of course, not everyone will heed the warnings. Cancun alone sees well over 100,000 college students annually during spring break. MTV still plans to continue its popular spring break events, which will be held in Acapulco this year. Mexico, which relies heavily on tourism for income, will undoubtedly be upping the security. However, that has not warded off violence in the past. Drug gangs have showed a willingness to have fire fights with police and army officials rather than avoiding them. Because of the many instances of violence, it almost seems inevitable that spring break revelers somewhere in Mexico will end up caught in the cross-fire. If you are traveling to Mexico for spring break or vacation this year, use common sense to protect yourself. Better yet, talk to local law enforcement about what you can do to stay safe.
