Baja Book List

There are a great number of books about the Baja Peninsula, it's a very popular place. These are the ones we like that are still in print and generally available. Buy them before you go, English-language guidebooks are very difficult to find in Mexico, particularly away from the tourist cities. You can click on the Amazon logo to buy any of them.




Traveler's Guide to Camping Mexico's Baja: Explore Baja and Puerto Peñasco with Your RV or Tent - Mike and Terri Church

This is our Baja camping guide. The book has all of the Baja information from our book Traveler's Guide to Mexican Camping that relates to the Baja and Puerto Peñasco, and a lot more.





Moon Handbooks: Baja - Nikki Goth Itoi

We think this is the best all-around guidebook to the Baja.



Magnificent Peninsula: The Comprehensive Guidebook to Mexico's Baja California - Jack Williams and Patty Williams

A good all-around guidebook to the peninsula. It has information about geology, plants, history, places to stay (including some campground information), and lots of other things. It's now out of print but copies are sometimes available at a reasonable price by following the link to the left.



Lonely Planet's Baja California and Los Cabos -Danny Palmerlee

Very similar to the Moon Handbook: Baja listed above. Lonely planet also publishes a full line of guides to the entire world. Some people like Lonely Planet, some like the Moon Guides. They're both excellent.





Hooked on Baja: Where and How to Fish Mexico's Legendary Waters - Tom Gatch

The go-to guide for fishing on the Baja. Covers a lot more than just Cabo.



The Baja Adventure Book - Walt Peterson

If you are an outdoor sports lover don't read this book unless you really want to visit the Baja. Once you pick it up you won't be able to stay away. It's getting a little old and is now out of print, but we still like it!





Roadside Geology and Biology of Baja California - John, Edwin, and Jason Minch

This is a kilometer-by-kilometer guide to the geology and natural history of the Baja Peninsula along the highways. The book is out of print but copies are sometimes available on Amazon, you can check by following the link on the left.



The Log from the Sea of Cortez - John Steinbeck

How about a little travel literature for your Baja journey?
