Paralelo

Marked by a 42m (140ft) steel monument ostensibly resembling an eagle, the 28th parallel marks the border between the states of Baja California (Norte) and Baja California Sur. The time zone changes here: Pacific time (to the north) is one hour behind mountain standard time (to the south). There is an agricultural inspection and an immigration office (where you can acquire your tourist card, if, for some reason, you don't have it), one hotel and two trailer parks.

Hotel La Pinta Guerrero Negro (% 157-1304, in the USA 800-800-9632; www.lapintahotels.com; r US$77-88), part of the Baja chain of La Pinta hotels, sits precisely on the 28th parallel. It has a restaurant, a bar and 28 comfortable rooms. Trailer Park Benito Juárez (campsites US$10), alongside the hotel, has a few palapas and spacious RV sites.
