Fall 2016

Fall 2016 Journal del Pacifico cover by Chris SaborThis issue marks the start of our sixth season promoting Baja California Sur and we have a lot to share!

In the Fall 2016 issue’s ‘The Spirit of Baja Sur‘ we talk about two new places for you to stay and enjoy your time in the Todos Santos/Pescadero area—The Residences at Freesouls at Cerritos Beach and The Vibe B&B in the heart of Todos Santos’ historic district.

Chris Sabor, of Loreto Photography Adventures, has shared a few of his spectacular photos with us, including this issue’s front cover, and better yet, nine of his tips for taking great photos.

Bryan Jáuregui, of Todos Santos Eco Adventures, tells the tale of the original cowboys, Baja’s vaqueros, and their journey to the 31st National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada in “Cowboy Ambassadors.” Trudi Angell, of Saddling South, was an integral part of the adventure. You can join her on a pack trip exploring traditional ranch life and rock paintings in the Loreto / San Javier and San Ignacio areas. See her ad for details.
