The February Discover Baja Newsletter is here! This month we bring you updates and news in the Baja Bulletin; Graham Mackintosh checking out Ensenada's Caracol Museum; hiking the old road to San Javier; the February Baja fishing report by Gary Graham; some of Baja's unique Flora; and Tijuana's new Tras/Horizonte restaurant.

Gas is currently available everywhere on the peninsula but more gas increases are scheduled for this month. You can read about the most recent Baja road situations and gas availability on our Baja Road Conditions Page.

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!
