What we're about

Calling all Baja Lovers! Would you like to do more travel into Baja California, Mexico or looking for that first trip, but have no idea where to start? We are looking for like-minded people to enjoy all things Baja; from bar hopping to food tasting, concerts to festivals, soccer games to bullfights, surfing to whale watching, walking tours to backpacking trips. If it can be done in Baja, we can do it! Many of our trips will be day trips to specific events, but we will also have weekend and week-long trips further down the Baja strip.

In addition, we are interested in developing the local bi-national community in the Cali-Baja region. So some of our events will be more geared toward expats/Tijuana locals and/or binational networking (business & social).
