Jump on Gus the Baja Beach Bus for this three-day winding ride down through Baja's scenic hills and beautiful coasts to one of our favorite surf and sun spots on the Pacific Coast! Bring a surfboard if you've got one, or else just your sunglasses and a beer cozy, because we're going down South where the hubub dies away and you can spot the Milky Way.
We'll meet up at the border and you'll get to know your new best friend: Gus the Big Red Baja Beach Bus. Pile in with your bags and your new trip companions and settle into Gus's comfy seats for the ride South. We'll stop in Ensenada to see the sights and grab a drink or two at one of the many famous cantinas to choose from. Before climbing back in the bus, we'll fill up on the best local fish tacos. Next, a lazy afternoon drive through the hills will find us on the beach-front cliffs of Cuatro Casas in time to witness a gorgeous Baja sunset. Choose your bed either in the hostel or on Gus the Bus and drift off to the peaceful sound of ocean waves.
A delicious camp-cooked breakfast will energize you to spend the day however you choose. You could get cheap surfing lessons from the local expert or surf the waves on your own if you're already a pro. Otherwise, you can motor around on a beach cruiser, take a kayak out for a paddle, skate the one-and-only Showbowl, snorkel around the local reefs, or grab a fishing pole and tackle
and see what you can catch! If all that sounds like too much work, you can just kick back in our beach chairs and swap stories with your fellow Gusketeers.
When evening falls, we'll build up a bonfire and have a proper cook-out. Tales of brazen adventure are welcome! After some beers or margaritas and a whole lot of stargazing, we'll crash in our beds with the sting of salt on our skin.
Once everyone's awake, we'll make one last tasty breakfast before sliding back up the coast towards Ensenada and the border. Never fear, we'll make a few last taco and cantina stops before we get there! Finally, we'll exchange hugs and email addies before splitting up for good. ¡Hasta la proxima, compañeros!
