  1. Default Cali Road Trip, Including Baja

    My boyfriend and I are planning on flying to Cali (from Maryland) this August / September and we would like to plan a road trip to see as much of the state as we can. We were planning on taking about 10 days. We would definitely like to include Baja in our trip.

    Any suggestions as to where we should begin?

    Which airport should we arrive at / depart from?

    Would it be better to rent an RV or a car and stay in hotels along the way?

    Any traveling advice and or reccommendations on what to see would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Default Baja is going to be a challenge

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! There isn't any USA-based car or RV rental service that I am aware of that will let you take their rental into Mexico (to explore Baja). You can rent a vehicle in Mexico for exploring Baja, but you will have to leave your US rental behind. Here is a field report that you might find interesting and here is a list of routes and ideas around San Diego and southern California.

  3. Default There are a couple of companies that rent for Mexico

    There are a couple of companies that rent cars in the US that can be taken into Mexico -- but you really need to check out what the companies are and any restrictions on where in Mexico they can be taken. (For example, some only allow within a short distance from the border)

    Here's a previous thread on the topic..

    As a rule of thumb, if you really want to do this, to turn in one car in San Diego, take the trolley to the border, then taxi to a rental car agency in Tijuana (there are several at the airport, for example)
