Although it is a dry desert, the Baja California penninsula seemed nicer than the Mexican mainland return half of our tour. In comparison the population and traffic is less crowded, the pace of life more relaxed, and the scenery better (the ocean along Hiway 1 on the West and boojum cactus in the middle and East). From there (Eastern side of B.C.) you can take an overnight ferry cross the Gulf to the mainland Mexican Riviera, (maybe its possible to get ferry tickets in advance, we had to wait hours at the front of long lines or would have been shut out).
