2 Day Driving experience

 

This tour is about finding a balance between adventure, adrenaline, exploration and getting to know Baja, while being respectful of the locals and their environment. Although you are not driving at race pace, you will be on-board very capable pre-running vehicles, combined with excellent food and a great visit to the Costa Baja Resort.

We believe that to truly enjoy the Baja adventure, you need to be able to take in your surroundings, and be welcomed by the locals with a smile. We stay away from the use of helmets, however supply you with headsets and a racing intercom so that you can comfortably talk to your passengers, or listen to your favorite tunes on your iPod. Sure, we like vintage and cool, but some of the modern comforts are pretty nice too. Your experienced, Baja 1000 winning guide, will be with you to show you the trails and tell you about the location and history, as well as showing you some of the local hidden gems.

Your tour will start as you arrive at the premium resort in La Paz, Costa Baja, where you can enjoy the day by the pool, before meeting your guide for a 5 course tasting menu, marriage with 5 different Mexican wines. It is a surprise menu built by the chef where the guest will have an amazing experience at the renown Steinbeck Restaurant. The evening will give you the opportunity to prepare for your next couple of day’s activities and expectations. You will stay the night in the heart of the Costa Baja Marina and enjoy the great surroundings.

The next morning, you will enjoy breakfast at the resort before your guide gives you a safety introduction to your vehicle of choice. After your safety introduction you will head out on the road driving up the beautiful Sea of Cortez coast, towards San Evaristo before heading up the mountains through some local villages and ranch areas and then arriving to the town of Ciudad de Constitucion, from where you head to the fishing town and port, San Carlos.

Here you will stay the night in a very basic hotel; however get ready for one of the best, fresh seafood dinners that you can image.

The following day, you will drive parts of the famous Baja 1000 Race course along the Pacific Coast back to La Paz where you will finish once again at the Costa Baja Resort. Here you will say goodbye to your guide and crew and will be free to explore the many options available for dinner while staying the night at the Costa Baja Resort.
