I am thinking of doing a road trip with my family (husband and 2 kids, ages 9 & 12) down the Baja Peninsula and looking for advice and logistics. Car rentals, lodging, safety, best time to travel etc...
The best months would be now until September (summer months), once you get into fall it gets stormy. Stay a few days in Sayulita, one of my favorite parts of Mexico. Also, be sure to get a Mexican insurance policy, your U.S. one will be no good and bring cash, some gas stations won't accept cards.
