During Christmas vacation of 1989 my sister, Jane, and I rode our bicycles around the southern part of Baja, Mexico. The country, at that time, was remote and undeveloped. The majority of the roads were dirt tracks and the villages seemed like they were out of the 1800’s.
We recently took another bike trip there (2006) and found the gringos have invaded with condos lining the ocean front around the Cabo San Lucas area. Many of the other regions have changed due to the paved roads, but are still quaint and beautiful.
