Travelling through the unstable Baja California Scenic Highway
Baja California Scenic Highway (Mexican Federal Highway 1D) is a very scenic scenic toll road located in the northwestern Mexican state of Baja California.
This coastal road is 110km long. It’s asphalted and links Playas de Tijuana and Ensenada. If you do have the opportunity to drive this highway use your better judgment, your experience and know your vehicle capability.
The highway was constructed in the mid-1960's. The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! There are many excellent photo opportunities. Don't forget your camera with lots of film/memory, fully charged batteries and an empty memory card In December, 2013 a series of small earthquakes and recent heavy rainfall caused a landslide that made the highway collapse in a 300 foot section at Kilometer 93, just north of Ensenada. The road has been considered unstable for years. It’s better to drive this highway during the day unless you're extremely comfortable driving at night with zero street lights.
