The Baja California Peninsula, located on northwestern Mexico, is a long but slim peninsula that stretches along 1,250 Kilometers (775 miles) from the San Diego-Tijuana border… down to Cabo San Lucas, and is separated from mainland Mexico by the Gulf of California (also known as Sea of Cortes). It has a rather arid climate (Köppen BWh: Warm, Desertic) as most of the peninsula falls within the Sonoran desert limits, but has occasional fertile valleys on which grape and citric fruits are grown, such as the Valle de Guadalupe, one of the largest wine countries in Mexico. There are two federal states along this peninsula: Baja California (capital Mexicali) and Baja California Sur (capital La Paz). Some of the most important cities include Tijuana (1,483,992), Mexicali (902,983) and Los Cabos (164,162).
