The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Discover Stunning Wine Country in the Guadalupe Valley


4. Insider’s Tip

Getting to the Guadalupe Valley requires crossing the border near Tijuana.   

Flights from the U.S. to Ensenada or Tijuana, the nearest airports to the valley, all have stops and are prohibitively expensive, so your best bet is to fly to San Diego and then drive 90 minutes south on the Pacific Coast highway. Keep in mind that a U.S. car insurance policy will not cover you in Mexico, so be sure to ask your rental agency for additional Mexican insurance or purchase some online before your trip. And remember that customs at the border will only allow one liter of alcohol, so enjoy your favorite bottles while you’re there and then order them once you’re home on Wines From Baja.
