It is no secret that the media has been unkind to Mexico, as we have seen story after story about the violence taking place, as Mexico wages a war on the drug cartels.

Most people understand that this has been a necessary undertaking, but the media has certainly blown things out of proportion. Furthermore, when violence takes place in any part of our country, all of the country gets a bad mark.

The truth of the matter is that yes there are incidences of drug related violence in various parts of this country, as well as many countries throughout the world. However, this is not the norm for us here. There is violence in the U.S. as well, but we can’t blame the country for the actions of a few. If you are not into gang violence, then chances are you have or will never be involved in gang violence. If you are a peaceful, law abiding citizen, then likely you have always associated yourself with similar people and are not affected on a personal level with people who are not.

Baja California has become one of the safest places to visit in all of Mexico. Our state has vast resources that has something for everyone. From fishing and surfing along the coast to the Baja 1000 off road races. Baja California loves tourism and much of our livelihood depends on it. Our police forces on all levels, local, state, and federal, are determined to make you feel safe and welcome here.

Come rediscover Baja California for yourself and see why so many Americans have retired here and continue to live here throughout all the media coverage.

Welcome to Baja California.
