The October Discover Baja Newsletter is here! We're switching to an all-digital design this month and we think you'll enjoy the ease and functionality of this new format. Clicking on any of the links below will take you directly to that specific story and you'll easily be able to click through to website links to access more information. 

This month we bring you updates and news in the Baja Bulletin; Peninsula Picks for 5 unique wildlife experiences to have in Baja; the October Baja fishing report by Gary Graham; Carla King getting her motorcycle prepped to explore Baja Sur trails; and visiting the Cava de Marcelo cheese cave in Ojos Negros!

We're offering special $29 Discover Baja memberships ($10 off the regular price) until the end of October. 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!
