I have driven and camped all along the Baja and have never had a problem. I don't think you will also. The drug people stay away from the area due to the military check points and only one major highway. I get away from the border as soon as I cross and pick up my travel papers.

: A couple of friends and I are planning an October trip down the Baja. Been there probably about 20-25 times but not for the past 4 years. We plan to cross at Mexicali and go south from San Felipe on the Puertocitos road. Probably spend some time at Bay of LA, Bahio de los Muertes, Mulege, and Loreto. We take Kayaks and bikes. Camp on the beaches and just relax for a few weeks. My question is to anyone...How is the safety on the Baja? I don't mind the Federale Checkpoints but am concerned about the drug runners and drug battles. Since we stay on beaches (usually isolated ones), is safety a concern?? Another question is... How is the Puertocitos Road now? It was pretty narly several years ago. Kiitos for your answers!!
