The AAA Baja California Guide

aaa-baja-california-guide-2001A new edition, revised and expanded, has appeared in late 2001. Many beautiful photos, route descriptions, hotel and campground listings, and maps of both regions and cities make this an outstanding value. A new feature in 2001, which I find especially pleasing, is the section on “Greatest Hits” – some of these places are not so easy for the short-term traveler to reach, but the pages are well worth perusing for future ideas.  A few other features of this tour book: highway signs, useful Spanish words and phrases, lots of travel hints tucked away in sidebars, highway distances and average temperatures.
Paperback: 500 pages | Publisher: Wilderness Press (July 2001)

Pirates, Corsaries and Philabusters in Old California

pirates-corsarios-filibusteros-antigua-californiaBy Sealtiel Enciso Pérez

We welcome you to this space where our greatest desire is to promote knowledge of the history, culture and traditions of this beautiful land of Sudcalifornia, Baja California Sur.

This is a research work about the main Pirates who came to our Sudcalifornian coasts and who made tremendous feats of plundering ships on the high seas. Sometimes these pirates did not take anything, on the contrary hid their treasures in these lands waiting to return for them.

Es un trabajo de investigación de los principales Piratas que llegaron hasta nuestras costas Sudcalifornianas y que realizaron tremendas hazañas de saqueo de barcos en alta mar. En ocasiones estos piratas no se llevaban nada, al contrario ocultaban sus tesoros en estas tierras esperando regresar por ellos.
