When you are roaming the streets of Todos Santos in Baja California you will stumble across the famous Hotel California. The first reaction that most visitors have is that this must be the famous hotel the Eagles sang about. Well, it isn’t! There was even a lawsuit against the owner but it got rejected.
The point is, there is no specific Hotel California the Eagles sang about. Still, I feel like it could be very well the place. Anyhow, there is a different angle to look at the issue. When I came here last winter I had a conversation with a travel mate when we were camping at San Pedrito Beach close to Todos Santos and I had a certain epiphany.
Because I felt so warmly welcome at every surf spot and every beach along the Baja California and I even resonated with certain parts of the Eagle’s lyrics I came to the idea that Baja California itself is indeed Hotel California. That is what I like to feel. If you have your own camper and you living up the vanlife than every beach becomes Hotel California.
I made this mixtape to honor this idea. Of cause, the mix starts up with the famous song written and performed by the Eagles and continues smoothly through different other genres. Please enjoy my “Hotel California Mixtape” and please leave a comment.
