Perhaps the most well-known fishing tournament in the world, Bisbee’s Balck & Blue fishing tournaments in Baja California are, thanks to the extra-large purse, legendary. Started in 1981 by Bob Bisbee, the Black & Blue Marlin Tournament has grown from six teams with a purse of $10,000 to more than 150 teams with millions of dollars on the line. In 2006, the Bisbee’s Black & Blue had its biggest overall cash payout of $4,165,960, which was, and remains, the largest sportsfishing payout ever. For over 30 years now, Bisbee’s has been putting on fishing tournaments of fabled scope, so, as you might imagine, Bisbee’s name carries a lot of weight in the sportsfishing industry.

Acapulco’s main thoroughfare and party central is Costera Miguel Aleman, but the locals know and love it as simply “La Costera,” which is essentially a road that winds around the long and beautiful bay of Acapulco. It’s a long stretch of asphalt, sand, and skyscrapers, which is incongruous enough, but La Costera is more than just a Caribbean oddity – it’s Acapulco’s primetime real estate. If you’re in Acapulco and looking for something to explore, or a fun night out on the town – you’re looking for some time spent on La Costera.

Came to Baja California in search of some quiet beauty? Let me introduce you to the charms of Todos Santos: quiet little village located just about an hour’s drive up the coast from Cabo San Lucas. While Cabo is a great resort destination filled with watersports and great diving, sometimes you feel the need to get out there and explore a little bit – to wander, to discover, to experience more of the Baja peninsula than the resorts would have you see. If you find yourself bit by the adventure bug on your trip to Cabo San Lucas – take stock. There are a great many things to do in Cabo San Lucas, but beyond the next ridge lies adventure in the form of the sleepy charms of Todos Santos.

Smack dab in the heart of Puerto Vallarta lies the river Cuale (Rio Cuale) and a small island called Rio Cuale Island. These two features of Peurto Vallarta often go overlooked, and it’s a shame, because they’re both unique and charming additions to any stroll through Puerto Vallarta. In fact, they usually only get mentioned when someone mentions shopping in Puerto Vallarta, or on a Puerto Vallarta City Tour, because you can access both the Rio Cuale and the Rio Cuale Island right off of the Malecon boardwalk (a famous strip of restaurants and giftshops).

Though the most solemn and ornate of festivities take place from October 30 to November 2 when families spend the night among the graves of their ancestors and comfort of their neighbors, activities take place all October long. There are so many traditions to be honored, some spanning all of Mexico, others important only to certain regions and communities. Though whether their roots go back to Europe or long lost indigenous America, no one can quite say.

There’s been more than a little trouble in paradise recently, but despite feeling the full force of Hurricane Odile on September 14th, Cabo San Lucas is bouncing back and locals are encouraging tourists not to postpone their travels and help bring much-needed business back to the region.
