This part of Mexico began in Baja California Sur through the Tijuana border crossing. I would travel all the way through Baja to La Paz, before crossing by ferry into Mazatlan on the mainland and then go south and then from West to East to enter Belize. The trip would take over a month and cover 5000 miles. Baja California Sur, officially the Free and Sovereign State of Baja California Sur, is the second-smallest Mexican state by population and the 31st admitted state of the 31 states which, with the Mexico City, make up the 32 Federal Entities of Mexico.
