The June Discover Baja Newsletter is here! This month we bring you updates and news in the Baja Bulletin; Patchen Cabin in Cataviña; summer fun with kids in Baja; Valle de Guadalupe winery Bodegas Henri Lurton; adventure stops between San Diego and San Quintín; hurricane preparedness; the 2017 Vendimia schedule; and the June Baja fishing report.

We're pleased to introduce you all to W. Scott Koenig, whom some of you may know better as "El Gringo" from A Gringo in Mexico. Scott will be writing regular articles for us chronicling the culinary movement in Northern Baja. We know you'll enjoy following along and getting inspired (and hungry) to travel.

Don't forget your FMM tourist permits or your Mexican auto insurance before heading south! If you spend less than 120 days a year in Baja, you can save $100 on average on your annual Mexican auto insurance policy by becoming a Discover Baja member. This is because our members have access to our SUPER SAVER Mexican auto insurance policies that are not available to the regular public. Sign up online to become a Discover Baja member or get a free quote on Mexican auto insurance!  Or give us a call at 800-727-2252 or come into our office in San Diego.

See you in Baja!
