Yes, Tecate is the place to cross the border. Quick and easy. You need to get your visa at the border, pay for it at the bank a block and a half away, back to the border to get it stamped, then you are on your way. Avoid the toll road, take Mexico 3 to Ensenada. A GPS with Mexico Maps will help you get thru large towns, worth the investment. I have made the trip to Baja 4 times in the last 3 years, once to Cabo, once to La Paz, once to Loretto and once to San Felipe. I may be interested in doing it again this year. San Ignacio is a great little town to spend a day in, so are Mulege and Loretto. The roads are under construction constantly so plan on at least some dirt, unless you plan to go to Coco's Corner, well worth the trip.
OK, I just re-read the post and you are talking about NEXT YEAR. Alright I'm still interested, but it is a long way off
