Baja California is a state in Mexico and the peninsula extends 1,250km from Tijuana. The mainland portion of the state is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the east by Sonora, the U.S. state of Arizona, and the Gulf of California (“Sea of Cortez”), and on the south by Baja California Sur. It exhibits diverse geography for a relatively small area. The Peninsular ranges of the California cordillera run down the geographic center of the state. Valleys between the mountain ranges are located within a climate zone that are suitable for agriculture. Such valleys included the Valle de Guadalupe and the Valle de Ojos Negros, areas that produce citrus fruits and grapes. The mineral-rich mountain range extends southwards to the Gulf of California.

The local scenery on the ground of Cabo San Lucas at the southern end of the peninsula is as follows.
