San Felipe Photos

Here are a few photos from my trip to San Felipe. Enjoy! (Click to enlarge)

View of the town, the Malecon and the beach from the lighthouse. As you can see the tide is way out. San Felipe has one of the largest tide changes in the world. I forget how high it ranks, but it is something crazy like 28 feet.

You can ride horses on the beach. I didn't because I didn't want to pull a Madonna and risk having to Medivac to California. Shit like that can really ruin a vacation!

This pina colada van drives along the beach and sells fresh pina coladas served in either a pineapple or a coconut!

May 1st is Labor Day in Mexico so tons of people were taking advantage of the long weekend and camping on the beach. Very fun!

You have to drive right through the Sierra Juarez mountain range to get to San Felipe from the states. The views from the highway are amazing.

This is a cute little Corona store on the highway between San Felipe and Mexicali. I prefer Tecate and Pacifico to Corona, but I have to admit that this store is awesome! The highways in this part of Mexico are so easy going; most people average around double the speed limit, $100 pesos ($10 USD) will get you out of a ticket and you can drink in the car. If you are planning a road trip and want it to be hassle free, I highly recommend this route!
