TAKING OFF THIS MAY

¡Vamos a Baja!

Join us on the first-ever Salt & Wind trips! A small group of us will head on a highly curated 4-day trip to northern Baja California. There will be a mix of urban and rural exploring the area from the border down through quirky Tijuana, the seaside of Ensenada, and into Mexico's wine region, the Valle de Guadalupe (aka the Ruta del Vino). Our itinerary includes expert-led tours, art gallery visits, pop-up parties, seaside meals, a hands-on cooking class, market visits, wine tastings, boutique accommodations, a concierge, a group photographer, morning yoga, and, oh, ya, some seriously good food! Need some visuals of it all? Check our Baja Pinterest board!

FROM TJ TO THE VALLE

But Why Baja?

 

 

A bit rugged and gritty but thoroughly modern, Baja California is one of our favorite parts of the world right now. If you haven’t been to Tijuana since college Spring Break, you might be all, “huh?” but trust us. With a rustic wine region coined the "Next Napa," a unique local cuisine known as "Baja Med," a mix of street food and fine dining touted by Anthony Bourdain, and a new generation of creatives making their mark in everything from art to design, Baja California has our hearts. Join our trip to experience the region before it's on everyone’s radar.
