Bring your passport!!

For this year's social event we will journey south of the US border to visit Baja California, Mexico. The Tourist Corridor just south of the California border includes Tijuana, Ensenada and Rosarito. The region has long endeared itself to visiting Americans and International travelers in search of sprawling coastlines with a Southern California climate.

Our first stop will be Tecate, Mexico. Tecate offers a charming small-town ambience even today, an attraction that keeps bringing tourists into the town. There's a thriving artists' colony that influences the temper of the town. Rather than the usual curios found in border towns, local pottery, tile and glassworks are displayed at shops and handicraft centers, and local art is displayed at galleries around town. We will have time to sample local sweet breads and beer for which the town is famous, and visit Hidalgo Plaza, where visitors can enjoy Tecate's unique beauty.

Next, we visit Rosarito, Mexico. Rosarito lies along the sea coast, and has a mild climate with plenty of sun and a soft sea breeze. Each year, thousands of tourists run from the hustle and bustle of large cities to relax on the beaches of Rosarito. We will dine at a beautiful beach-side resort in nearby Puerto Nuevo. We will be met with a welcome drink and enjoy the sunset and a nice dinner with traditional Mexican food and folkloric dance and mariachi.

Please do not forget to bring your passport to participate in this exciting excursion.
Foreign visitors should ensure that they have multiple-entry visas to the US if necessary.

The web site for US passport requirements can be found at U.S. Department of States International Travel Information to Mexico and Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative
