Because it is a large city, many transit options are available, although walking is the best way to take in the city. The cultural center, art galleries, restaurants, and luxury hotels are just a few more of the wonderful reasons to visit Tijuana.

Northern Baja National Parks are a great option, especially for those interested in hiking and camping, though they are perfect for a daytrip as well. Parque Nacional Sierra San Pedro Mártir has 170,000 acres of protected natural beauty. Filled with pine and cypress trees and towering mountains, the park is considered one of the best protected natural parks in Mexico. While there, look to the skies for the California Condor, and keep an eye out for bobcats, coyotes, bighorn sheep and other wildlife that call the area home. Experienced hikers may enjoy hiking to the 10,000 foot-high Pichaco del Diablo. Parque Nacional Constitución de 1857 is located near Ensenada and known for being quite beautiful. Also filled with pine trees, travelers can expect to see many types of wildlife throughout the park. The lakes often dry up during the summer season, but fill again during the winter season due to higher rainfall and even snow. Both parks have cabins that can be rented or campsites that are available.
