Now Viewing: Mexico

 

Wet and Wild in Tijuana

Updated March 9, 2017. El Vergel is now Partially open so we are re-running our post. Why? Because it’s still fun to watch Ed slip and fly like a pro (not really, he is the model for the wrong way).

With two small kids and a limited travel budget, that was very important. I borrowed a friend’s copy of Walt Paterson’s Baja Adventure book and photocopied all the interesting sections. (This was pre-internet trip planning).
