Tecate Ensenada Road - for clarity after some unclear info on this road in some recent postings, we just came down on this route and as you climb up and out of tecate heading south, there is road construction for about 5-7 miles where you are diverted off the old asphalt road and onto newly constructed side roads which are of course "bone jarring". it was an unpleasant surprise as there was a long section like this closer to Ensenada in the Guadalupe valley last year. if we had known we still would not have changed our route as we like to avoid Tijuana an Mexicali adds so many miles to the trip. driver beware!
