Getting to the point as to personal safety! I would not use the back roads of Rosarito if you gave me the whole damn peninsula! There is "S" going on in them thar hills that you do not want to slide into! Over 50 headless bodies discovered there in the not to distant past!! As to minding your own business will keep you safe that is BS. If you come upon a little groupo of Cartel members delivering the weekly body dump they will not say hola and just let you drive by!!
But on the Gulf side below Mexicali it is as safe or safer then in the So. Ca. Desert. This area has some of the most interesting terrain that us Taco pushers would ever see. A place called Moon Beach" [not on the beach] on the North end of the Laguna Salada [just West & East of Mexicali that you will not see anywhere else on earth.
I can step out of my front door and drive up and down 70 miles of beach. Tell me where [not even Pismo] can you do that.
I will be down for the SF 250 March 13th. with a bunch of Off Roaders somewhere out on the course or pitting. I can just taste the cold TECATE NOW!
If any of you guys/gals want to go to Baja ask me about where and when and I will help you with the info!
Thanks for this So Ca. Forum, just found it.
Be safe and get out there full of sand!
im in rosarito every other weekend im pretty sure its safe...plus everyone who has been dying has had ties to one of the sides fighting over the tijuana plaza...and no "cartel members" are going to be dumping any bodies in broad daylight where there are pit stops, ranches, and all terrain vehicles going through constantly throughout the weekends. mexicalis is a safe zone for those associated with any group but soon mexicalis gonna be as worst as tj rosarito and ensenada pretty soon
