Caravan Itinerary

We are offering 3 separate caravan opportunities to escort you through Baja between November 2023 and February 2024. Each caravan builds on the previous one, and our last caravan at the end of January will be the more popular option as we’ll be traveling at the peak of the RV camping season.

Below are general itineraries for each caravan. Note that we will still tweak the final itineraries after we meet in our caravan groups to discuss several possible options for customizing the caravan.

12-Day Escort to Loreto – November

This caravan will bring you into Baja ahead of the crowd when the water is the clearest and warmest and you can find camping at your new favorite spot with little effort. We’ll be giving you a 7 to 12-day course on how to travel in Baja, building your confidence by giving you all the information you need and answering all the questions you may have about RVing and camping in Baja.

Whether you plan to stay the whole season or just want to be an early bird exploring Baja before the masses show up, these 12 days will be your best introduction to RVing and camping in Baja!

We will take you as far as Loreto, though you are welcome to jump off the caravan at any point you decide you are comfortable traveling on your own. Note that you will need to pay for the furthest destination you would like to travel to.

From there, we’ll run to the grocery store and ATM to stock up on groceries and pesos. Then it’s on to the Malecon to enjoy a gorgeous sunset and the best Taco al Pastor in Baja!

The next morning we’d love for you to join us at Horses in Baja, where we’ll volunteer with the equine therapy class taking place that day. You will be able to assist children with disabilities as they ride horses in the arena or you may be to assist around the barn in other ways.

If you don’t want to volunteer, you have the morning off to enjoy the beach or maybe walk back to the Malecon. In the afternoon you have the opportunity to take a trail ride through the desert. And upon your return back, we will all join for a special rib BBQ dinner and campfire!

The next day we have the option to take a formal tour of the town or head off into the mountains to view the cave paintings.
Formal Campground

The next day we’ll join a tour and either head out to explore the islands off the coast of Loreto (weather permitting) or to go inland and over the mountains to the small town and mission of San Javier.
