is probably more culture events happening in Tijuana than recreation, but there are enough
sports to keep the Baja traveler busy. In addition to two good golf courses, surfing and
kayaking can be enjoyed along the coastal bluffs of Tijuana. Snorkeling and scuba diving
are good off of the Coronado Islands.

From the U.S. border, it is advisable to paddle south. If
you paddle north you will be entering the United States illegally, and you and your kayak
are subject to search by the nice men in the green trucks.
Probably one of the most hair-raising races in the world is
the annual big bike run from Tijuana to Cabo San Lucas. It's hard to believe, but the
winner makes this thousand-mile mad dash in about 10 hours! Dubbed the CABO 1,000, this insane run on the Baja blacktop is the Mexican version of a Cannonball Run. Only
All of the surf along the coastal bluffs near Tijuana are
beach breaks, with typical beach break shape. Waves do get large when there is a swell,
but it takes a little research to find out where recent sand bars have developed creating
longer rides. Shoulder hopping can be fun, but with a lack of a channel to get past the
breakers, paddling out can be a real exercise when the waves are big. Wetsuits are
advisable from October through May. Bring your own wax.
