Define 'pleasant'. Hot? Cool? Humid? Dry? Lots of people will rightly claim the best climate is where they live, but that just means they like the climate there best.

I prefer dry. The Baja is dry, but is it too hot in summer? I imagine it is similar to California, but possibly much hotter.

I've read the Sea of Cortez coast of the Baja can get too hot in summer. Does anyone know if there is a difference between he two coats, Cortez and Pacific?

About 5000 ft elevation seems best for many expats. Higher can get pretty cool in winter, and lower can get hot in the summer. Coastal areas can be too humid, and sometimes too hot. Guadalajara might be a good starting point, with explorations in the surrounding areas.

The Pacific side is much cooler.

Is it only cooler on the actual coast, or generally cooler even a bit inland on the Pacific side? I was looking at plots of land, and I saw something that looked interesting a few miles inland, in a nice looking vineyard area on the Pacific side, in northern Baja.

I realise that. I suppose I mean Southern California, and not too far from the Pacific. If the climate of the west side of the Baja is similar, and not significantly hotter, I think that makes it an attractive climate (notwithstanding climate change that could turn both regions into a furnace). Does anyone here know how the two regions, Baja and Pacific Southern California, compare climate-wise?
