For anyone who loves the smooth ocean breeze and waves, and enjoys the warm sunny rays on an exotic and beautiful beach, Baja is the place to be. And, of course you definitely want to spend your vacation here if you are a windsurfer. As you already know, Baja California is a real windsurfing paradise on earth. The Baja Peninsula is located south of the United States, between the Pacific Ocean at west and the Sea of Cortez at east.

Thousands of tourists come here every year to enjoy the exotic landscape or to practice water sports. The water is crystal clear and the waves are gentle. A nice breeze blows across the water, so the conditions are perfect for any windsurfer. The Sea of Cortez is one of the beast places in the world to practice windsurfing or learn the basics of this great sport. If you are a beginner or intermediate rider you will love Bahia de Los Angeles and Bahia Concepcion, while Canal de Cerralvo, Canal San Jose, and Canal de Ballenas offer excellent conditions for offshore riding. The wind is mild and the waves are not very high, so it is the perfect place for a recreational and fun session.

If you are a hardcore, experienced rider you might want to try the Pacific shores of the Peninsula. This area offers higher winds, so the advanced riders can train to improve their performance without effort. Bahia Magdalena is perhaps the best place for the riders to experience a nice strong breeze during the entire year. Los Barilles is another piece of Heaven for the windsurfing enthusiasts. Here takes place the Vela-Neil Pryde Baja Championships organized by the Vela Windsurf Resort and Neil Pryde.

Besides the magnificent conditions for windsurfing, Baja California is also an excellent destination for boat sailing, scuba diving and other water sports. Many water sports resorts and schools await you near the beach, so you have plenty of places where to start having fun. And, of course, after you had fun out on the water you can enjoy a sip of pure Mexican Tequila in one of the local bars.
