CROSSING SOUTH is a travel show that explores Tijuana and Northern Baja.

Bilingual travel companion and host, Jorge Meraz, takes you on a journey and demystifies the area. Get to know the people, vernacular, foods, customs and places frequented by the locals.

In this episode, host Jorge Meraz takes a trip down to San Quintin, which is about four hours south of San Diego. First we learn a little history about the British settlements that helped to start this town.

After getting a bite to eat at Molino Viejo Restaurant & Bar, we explore the fascinating world of seafood farming.

Learn about the new oyster farming processes being used and observe a hesitant Jorge slurp one down with salsa and lime.

The abalone reseeding project is also an intriguing venture as we get to see the tiny month-old babies, all the way up to five-year-old adults.

Our last adventure takes us to Ensenada, where we watch the ocean water fly into the air at the largest ocean geyser in North America, La Bufadora.
