    Everybody travelling in baja 
    take a spanish dictionary with you, english is not spoken everywhere, especially not in remote areas. Recommend "Reisewörterbuch Spanisch" from Pons or Klett. 
    We recomend to get a annual insurance for mexico,
    if traveling longer than 3 weeks and save a lot of money and get more services for your money! (Some Insurerance Companies include in there anual insurance: towing, legal aid, parts shipping cost ect). After about 3 weeks the price of daily or anual insurance is the same, after abt. 26 days you pay more at the daily rate and get less services. 
    Don´t stay alone when parking overnight. 
    Always look for other RV´s, cars and people. We had several reports on single RV´s being attacked during the night south of San Quintin and Punta Arena near San Jose del Cabo (there are many Pt Arenas in Baja). Windows were knocked in and tires were cut with knives, people were forced to give there money. 
    Only use a small amount of your money in traveller cheques
    because it´s a problem having them changed. We were lucky in Ensenada, Loreto, La Paz and Cabo. The Bank in Loreto offered best exchange rates and no fees ! Pay with Pesos you are better off!! 
    A few miles north of Colonia Guerrero, San Quintin there is a new and bilangual tourist info at the right hand side traveling south. 
    Take an extra can of gasoline 
    (Benzin), a good spare Tire (Reifen), a jack (Wagenheber) and nut-drivers (Schraubensclüssel/Werkzeuge) with you. Always try to get the latest news on the campgrounds and the prices, exchange rates and fuel price.
