We are near a new period but knowing life’s uncertainty; you might not have the opportunity to plan an elaborate getaway or vacation in this new time frame. We invite you to enjoy Mexicali’s lovely landscapes, disconnect from the routine, and visit historical places in the Baja Californian region.
Whether you come from Tijuana, Tecate, Ensenada, or anywhere else, we recommend that you follow these recommendations before getting in your car:
Do you have everything ready? Then it’s time to go! Whichever route you choose to follow to get to Mexicali, you will be able to come across magnificent landscapes, such as the breathtaking La Rumorosa highway. This rocky road full of curves and lookouts is located on the 2-D Tijuana-Mexicali federal highway. Its name refers to the loud whispers that intense winds generate when colliding with the large stacked rocks, forming natural monuments. You will find viewpoints with parking spaces; take advantage of these areas to capture and enjoy the scenery.
Below are our recommendations on what to eat in Mexicali when you arrive!
Pez Gallo is one of the best places in Mexicali to try if you are craving seafood. The restaurant has various fresh dishes such as tuna slice, pink habanero aguachile, octopus tostadas, sushi, among other delicacies. The eatery follows all COVID-19 protocols for indoor dining and has its beer and delicious cocktail drinks, so cheers! Find more information on the restaurant’s Instagram page .
Do you prefer red meat? No problem! The restaurant Asadero Acatlán de Juárez has plenty of roast beef, tripe, cabeza (cows’ head), tongue, barbeque and quesadillas (with A LOT of cheese, in case you were wondering).

Once you've eaten, it's time to get off the road and go for a walk. The temperature is quite pleasant at the beginning of April, perfect for walks around the city. Locate the different points of street art that Mexicali has, and that should be visited more often. For example, La Chinesca, is a space full of culture, history, art, and secrets. We challenge you to take a great photo, tag us on Instagram to see it, and share your experience in the comments section. We would love to hear from you!
