San Felipe, located in Baja
California, Mexico, is located just 58 miles south of the United States border.
With average year round temperatures of 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and miles of
pristine sandy beaches, it has become a major tourist destination. It is
also a popular spring break getaway due to its many night clubs, bars, and
tourist attractions. San Felipe also offers an ocean side golf course, off
road racing, and Carnival, often referred to as the Mardi Gras of Mexico
which usually occurs in February. San Felipe experiences one of the
largest tidal swings in the world, due to the Colorado delta just to the North.
At low tide, the ocean will recede and expose up to ½ mile of ocean floor.
San Felipe is dependent on fishing and tourism, and now has an international
airport. It has a population of 11,700 as of the 2010 census.
