I like it!

I'm with VetX², there's some fantastic fishing out of San Felipe and Cabo. Even many of the little playas along the way.

I have some negotiating to do before declaring IN however ...

1) yes to stop south of Tijauna(on way back)
2) solo cervezas y tequila o mezcal
3) camping on playas although some may opt to motel on some nights depending on local(i.e. San Felipe or Ensenada or even one big night at a large rental house in Cabo :) ) I'm still working on this..........
4) Fishing in Cabo and off playas (bring small boats or kayaks)

. . . You will need a ham license . . . .
FYI, from the ARRL website 8/17/17:

There have been significant changes in Mexico’s telecommunications structure. CoFeTel has been replaced by a new telecommunications agency - IFT. At this time there are no procedures in place for US licensees (or those from other nations) to obtain a valid license in Mexico or to operate under a reciprocal agreement.
See also, Mexico Not Yet Extending Operating Permission to Non-Mexican Radio Amateurs

Unless things change by the time of the trip, I will likely take a cheap Baofeng HT, use it with my roof mount antenna, and leave my Yaesu dual bander at home. That way I won't care if my Ham radio is confiscated by the Federales.
