Solo Travelers

Traveling alone has many perks, but there are drawbacks. The main one is accommodation: nearly all hotels charge the same rate for one or two people, and there are few hostels. Because most folks traveling Baja are drivers from the USA and Canada, it's difficult to hook up with other travelers. Another bummer about traveling alone is having to leave your belongings on the beach when you go for a swim. The only solution is to take to the beach only things (cheap flip-flops, towel and hat) that you don't mind losing. You can always leave your key at the hotel desk.

Traveling alone as a woman implies inherent risks anywhere in the world, and Baja is no exception. See p265 for more information specific to female travelers.
