San Felipe Spruces Up for Spring:  Tourist-Friendly Changes in this Sea of Cortez Town

The Baja California government is working hard to complete improvements to the Malecón in San Felipe in time for the Tecate Score San Felipe 250 in March. As San Felipe spruces up for spring, this friendly town is a-bustle with activity and positive energy!

For cities along the coast in Mexico, the Malecón is the name used for the promenade along the waterfront. It is a vibrant place and the heart and soul of the community where friends and families gather.  It’s no different in San Felipe, and it’s the place to go to people watch, hang out at the beach, eat at restaurants, or shop. And recently, the state government of northern Baja has funded an improvement project in San Felipe to widen and beautify the Malecón. The hope is to have it complete for the Tecate Score San Felipe 250 in March and the work on it is going at a steady rate. For San Felipe restaurants and other businesses, the improvements mean a better and cleaner look to the downtown area plus increased foot traffic.

The Malecon is the main focus of tourist activities, including restaurants, events and shops.

Additionally, with the recent improvements finished on Highway 5 from Mexicali to San Felipe, visitors will have an even better experience for all the events and activities coming up soon like: Carnaval on February 8-12, the Paella Festival on March 2, the Tecate Score San Felipe 250 from March 8-10, and the San Felipe Blues and Arts Fiesta on March 22 and 23.
