Where you previously put off visiting San Felipe Baja California due to the miles and miles of construction on the San Felipe – Mexicali highway 5?  Well, here’s the good news, construction of San Felipe – Mexicali highway 5 is now complete.  As of December 2012, there are no detours that take you through rough bumpy gravel dirt roads.  The road is a joy to drive one.  Most of the highway now has a shoulder and lanes have been doubled for easy passing.  And yes, getting to San Felipe from Mexicali is now possible in 2 hours again at reasonable speeds.

Here’s a video that was shot on a drive down from San Diego, CA all the way to San Felipe, Baja.

This should give you a good sense of the road conditions.

Have a safe trip!
