Must See in Mexico - Part 1

After travelling through the country there are a few things which I think are must do's, and here's a list with some pictures to help you along. I'll do them in lots of 5 so you don't fall asleep after the 58th slide, but if you are ever going to head to Mexico these are the Jewels that we found, I'm sure you'll either find or have experienced others, but here goes......
  1. Must get a TOURIST VISA when you cross the border if you plan on going further then Ensenada. We forgot, and ended up paying a fine further down the road.

  2. Eat Tamales on the side of the road
    On the way from the blow holes there were a few of these stands. We pulled over and sampled everything the woman had on off. Everything was GREAT, and we ended up with a few jars of olives as well!

  3. Eat Taco's and spend the night in Santa Rosalita
    Not only are they great taco's, they're also cheap! And you have the added bonus that a bunch of guys will drive past 37 times a beep and hollar at the girls......

  4. Take a Car
    But be warned, it needs to have lots of road clearance because there are HUNDREDS of speed bumps (otherwise know as Topes, watch for signs......... although they are rarely signed)

  5. Visit Bahia De Los Angeles
    It's going to be a long hot drive there, and you will need to fill your car up with a guy on the side of the road with a makeshift sign for Petrol. But don't worry about the quality of his fuel......... all the fuel in Mexico is dirty.
    Don't forget to get a picture under the giant Cactus either. There won't be as many anywhere else on the mainland, so make the use of it why you can. Seriously, look at the size of it. Has to be at least 8 or 9 meters.

    Don't forget lots and lots of water, it's of the hottest drives we did for the whole trip, but as you can see it's well worth it in the end.
It doesn't take very long to get through five, but if you like what you've seen so far make sure you come back again soon and find out what places make it in Part 2.
