The “Guadalupe Valley” is located in the municipality of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. 12 miles North Ensenada and 70 miles South from the Mexican/Californian border. 

Is a popular tourist destination for wine and Baja Med cuisine lovers. It has over 180 wineries and a wide variety of award-winning restaurants and casual spots to brunch, and dine.

For people coming from California, the best way is to cross the border and drive down South. Enjoy the scenic route for a short drive to Valle de Guadalupe. People traveling from the Midwest or the East coast, it’s best to fly to San Diego, rent a car and drive down South. (Read: Step-by-step guide from San Diego to Valle.)

It’s absolutely safe to travel to Valle de Guadalupe. What is recommended is to hire a tour operator that is familiar with the area so you just sit back and enjoy what Valle has to offer. Some tour operators offer pick up/drop off from downtown San Diego or the pedestrian crossing at the border

Valle de Guadalupe’s weather can vary from arid to Mediterranean. During the Summer it’s typically hot and dry with consistent winds along the Pacific coast. During Spring and Fall you’ll find that it’s cooler, but the sun is still shining bright. This is also the busiest time of the year. If you prefer a quieter experience you might want to go in the Winter. Although you do risk rainy and gloomy weather.

The key here is: layers! Always pack a coat, jacket or sweater for the colder mornings and nights. Summer will still require something warm for the cooler evening temps, but the desert heat during the day will call for shorts, dresses, skirts, and short-sleeve tops. If you’re going in Winter, you might want to bring along a heavy/rain jacket, umbrella, and shoes you won’t mind getting muddy.
