CRIME and VIOLENCE in SAN FELIPE,BAJA CALIFORNIA MEXICO

I was really concerned the first time I went over the border into Baja because of all the crime reported in the media. But, after I got there and saw how wonderful the people are in San Felipe and how safe it is I realized that everything would be ok. Since that first trip I’ve been there at least 30 times and am excited about owning property in Baja. A woman can walk the streets in the evening alone and still be safe. This is not your father’s Mexico. The streets are clean, the people are kind and grateful that you are visiting their fishing town, and since Mexico wasn’t a part of the secondary market economy nightmare, the government is putting a great deal of money into the San Felipe Marina, infrastructure, and their new 4 lane highway from Mexicali to San Felipe. When you look at the crime statistics > total crimes (per Capita) (most recent) by country> per 1,000 people. The US is rated 8th with 80.0545 per 1,000 people and Mexico is rated 39th with only 12.8406 per 1,000 people. I like to joke with people when they ask me if I’m afraid to go to Mexico and I say, “If I can just get through Los Angeles, I’m not afraid at all.” Nationmaster total crime Claremont is currently my hometown, and Los Angeles is less than an hour away. Did you know that Los Angeles is rated the 6th most crime-ridden city in the United States? I make this point because; since I am not involved in anything that goes on in Los Angeles I have not been at risk. The same goes for San Felipe. The nearest crime is 325 miles away. If you aren’t involved in smuggling drugs or firearms, you aren’t at risk. Listen to your local news and count the number of crime reports you hear in just one evening. If you’re reading this, my guess is that you weren’t involved so you weren’t at risk. Notice when the most Mexico crime reports or warnings are broadcasted. Spring Break for our kids here in the US is when the most warnings are issued from our government. Could it be because our government doesn’t want US money going to Mexico? What a surprise! When you take into account this report on the Crime Statistics per country the US tops the chart. Could it be that you would be safer in Mexico than in the United States?

A Sea of Cortez Catch! Whether you bring your own boat or rent the services of a local “Panguero” (whose rates are negotiable), you will find corvina the most prevalent of the local game fish. In addition, there is an abundance of white sea bass (in deeper water) as there is lisa (of the mackerel family), and cochito (triggerfish).

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.
