EA en Forbes

Traveling to Mexico for many people means booking a flight to Los Cabos or Todos Santos. But the most intriguing and stunning destination in Mexico right now is the Valle de Guadalupe wine country in Baja California Norte.

IMG_9622THE TWO VALLEYS MEET. The Mercury News was founded in 1851, it is the most respected paper south of San Francisco Bay, is the second posting by a newspaper in the bay area, after the SF Gate wrote about Encuentro Antiresort™ last year.
