Baja La Paz Camping & RV Parks

La Paz restaurants

The lower half. The beaches, the ranches, the cacti, the fishing, authetico, and we cannot forget the resorts. The capital of Baja Sur Mexico is La Paz, the major city of the southern region. Only an hours drive from the resort mecca Cabo Coastline or village of Todos Santos, the urban center has an airport, downtown, shopping, restaurants, auto repair services and a developed sea side port. Out near the Sea of Cortez you can find small inlets and bays with kayaking, snorkeling and primitive camping on white sandy beaches.

This event is superb for discovering the sport of paddling, plus sampling kayaks and canoes.  Why buy a kayak without getting advice first? Try out various styles of boats at the festival. Manufacture reps, raffle prizes, clinics, demonstrations, new gear, old faves, fun times and lakes. Extremely informative festival.

Best 4×4 Vehicle

wheelin CALI

While each person has their own opinion about what brand of 4 wheel drive vehicle is the best, most will agree the brand they own is at ‘top of the list’, if not #1.

Jeepers have long understood the power of playing outside on dirt roads and their highly modified rigs have established a reputation for ‘the’ off-road machine. With dirt roads also called “Jeep Roads”, a zillion aftermarket parts available and annual events like Easter Jeep Safari, many would have you believe that the only off-road vehicle is the Jeep.

Truth be told! Nearly every make and model truck or SUV – can wheel in dirt and have fun exploring. Most capable vehicles are equipped w/ 4 wheel low range (a transfer case, maybe even a granny low) – but the 2WD high clearance SUVs and  all wheel drive (AWD) wagons are paving new ways for back road exploration too. Mild to wild, we list the rock crawling fools as well as the mellow Sunday scenic drivers. Car clubs that stick to only pavement can be found here.

And since we all know that our rigs are the very best, DanaMite has included all the possible car clubs, SUV makes, 4WD groups, forums and organizations in this list.
