Hardy River

Mexicali

45 minutes from the downtown of Mexicali, flowa the only navigable river in the state of Baja California, the Hardy. Its 26 kilometers of flow represent an arm of the Colorado River, whose tributary begins in U.S. territory.

Its waters were discovered by Sir William Hale Hardy, on board his boat “La Bruja”. The English naval lieutenant explored the Colorado River delta and pointed out that an arm followed to the east: later, it would be named Hardy del Colorado.

The river area is operated by 18 tourist camps, such as Rancho Baja Cucapah. It has cabins, hanging bridges, grills and offers water activities: paddling a kayak and sailing in a boat with the capacity for 25 people, are some the options. You can also tour the riverbank on a mountain bike.

On the other hand, Campo Mosqueda offers accommodation in cabins, mobile homes and apartments with river views. In addition, there is a track to run on ATVs and water rides by boat, banana or kayak and hiking for bird watching.

The Hardy River is also admired from the above, as it is one of the three places in Baja California for skydiving. As you fall at 226 km / h (140 m/h), you can see the entire agricultural valley of Mexicali, the Laguna Salada and, of course, the river channels.
