Looking for resources on Baja California Sur, first touring experience

Hi!

I just joined this community. Will be touring on the Baja Peninsula (Starting from La Paz and going northbound) by late December. I would love to be informed about best routes and their availabilty of resources, and if there are hosting member along those routes. My bike is a Giant 28 for touring. My plan is not to be just touring, but to stay at some places for some time, and do local rides. I know the terrain is harsh and could carry my bike on a bus if it seems too difficult, but would like to ride the longer routes as well. All and any resources/information will be highly appreciated! BTW, this will be my first touring experience on a bike, and I hope the beginning of whole new lifestye for me!  Cheers all!

For the thorns, you can use a solid tube. There are also slime products to fix punctures, and extra-thick tubes, but they can fail too.
