    OVERVIEW
    Enjoy an inspired wine tasting and gourmet lunch at a winery restaurant in the Guadalupe Valley, a fertile area known as the Napa of Mexico, in part because the vast majority of Mexico’s wines are produced there. During the drive inland, you will notice the terrain becoming hillier with an abundance of sprawling farms and idyllic valleys such as Guadalupe. Its microclimate is similar to that in the Mediterranean as the summers are relatively cool with constant ocean breezes. Red wine grapes in particular flourish there, and over the past three decades or so, more than 150 wineries have become established along the valley’s wine route. Your introduction to one of the premier wineries will begin with an enlightening, behind-the-scenes tour. Afterwards, you will sample a wide selection of characteristic wines that beautifully represent the Guadalupe Valley. They will be paired with cheeses, chocolates and marmalades, which will perfectly complement the fabulous 3-course lunch that follows.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Enjoy a spectacular scenic drive through the Guadalupe Valley, the Napa of Mexico.
    • Gain an understanding of the valley’s terroir by touring a premier winery.
    • Sample several representative Guadalupe Valley wines and enjoy a gourmet 3-course lunch.

    HELPFUL HINTS

    OVERVIEW
    Take the wheel of an ATV and tear off into the hinterlands of the Guadalupe Valley, one of the most hauntingly beautiful areas in Baja California. As you race through the rugged terrain in a caravan of vehicles, you will enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and indigenous pine forests. Incredibly, almost all of Mexico’s wines are produced in this valley, a land with a microclimate that is similar to but drier than that of the Bordeaux region in France. More than 150 wineries are now located in the valley and in a way they are simply following a tradition, as Jesuit priests first cultivated vines here in the 18th century. Once you return to the ATV base camp, you will enjoy a tasting of wines from the Guadalupe Valley, which has become known as the Napa of Mexico. Regional cheeses and fresh-baked artisan bread will also be served.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Watch a performance of traditional songs and dances in Ensenada’s cultural center.. • Spend free time exploring the venue, a former hotel and casino from the 1930s. • Enjoy a margarita, shop for handicrafts and discover the property’s notorious history.

    OVERVIEW

The deeper you hike into El Salto canyon, the more dramatic the terrain. The walls will become so steep in places that not even the midday sun will reach the bottom of the canyon.

The difficulty of the route will make the hike all the more rewarding. To enhance the adventure, the guide will elaborate on the geological formation of this black-rock canyon and whatever wildlife you may come across. Birds such as red-tailed hawks and Western kingbirds are often spotted. You might also see spiny lizards sunning on the boulders and scurrying about the arid terrain.
