This morning we will rendezvous at the beautiful Potrero Regional Park 45 miles east of San Diego in California at an elevation of 2300′. Today we will cross the border as a group into Tecate, Mexico and Baja Amigos will guide you through the Tourist Visa process. On return to the campground, everyone will receive an orientation and briefing prior to your 38 day Mexican Baja Adventure. You will also receive your Itinerary, Information, Log Book, Baja Map & Church’s Camping Book. Later Lisa & Dan will host a wine & cheese so everyone can get acquainted. Please note that Day ZERO is in addition to your 38 day tour. Baja Amigos Tours are 38 days IN MEXICO.
The Spanish word potrero means “pasturing place”. Until the middle of the 19th century, the Potrero region was inhabited only by Kumemaay Indians, who found the area rich in their main food, the acorn. Much of this 115 acre park is shaded by 100 year old oak trees and is well suited for year round recreation. The Kumemaay operate the Golden Acorn Casino, a 40 minute drive from the Potrero campground off I-8 with free RV Parking. Gas, Diesel and Propane are also readily available nearby in the Potrero village and Campo. Access to Wifi can be found at the local Library, a 5 minute drive from the campground. The community of Potrero also has a Post Office and great General Store & Restaurant.
