UTV Prep at Cabo Azul (Hotel in Cabo is not included in the trip cost but we will have a group rate set up)
Day 1 leave Cabo and head over to the East Cape and North to La Paz. We will make a slight detour, and head over to visit the Bahia de Los Metros (Bay of Dreams.) This is when you plan your next life move to Paradise. Then we treat you to 170+ mile drive down the East Cape to Cabo. This is a fast-paced, drifting road, with some truly amazing architectural sights to see.
Day 2 La Paz to Loreto - Several places to see along the way on Day 2 the San Luis Gonzaga ruins and the Mission San Luis Gonzaga Chiriyaqui - the most southern of the missions - will be next to visit. Then we start the trail back over the peninsula to the historic San Javier Mission, where we do a small tour. As we leave the Mission, the trail slowly turns into a single- lane graded rock infested trail.
Day 3 Lareto to Scorpion Bay - After a hardy breakfast we will do a little sightseeing around the Conception Bay, take some group pictures, and get back on the super fast trail heading to one of the best surf spots in Baja, Scorpion Bay. Along the trail we cross the salt flats and some possible non-hazardous water crossing, before our lunch destination in Scorpion Bay. Do not dilly-dally, we have a long road ahead of us, driving down the Pacific Coast.
Day 4 Scorpion Bay Bay of LA - Traverse the trails and salt flats over into San Ignacio, located in the middle of the peninsula and surrounded by a lagoon-type tropical feeling. This is where the humidity starts to kick in, and a tropical part of Baja can be seen for a short while. The cross over the peninsula through El Arco and back over to the Cortez side and into Bay of LA.
Day 5 Bay of LA to San Felipe - Watching the sun rise over the Sea of Cortez will leave you breath less. Todays drive up through the sand washes and over to CoCo's Corner is a fun fast route. We will say a quick "HI" to CoCo then be off to San Felipe. The road North to San Felipe will consist of some paved and some off road section of the old Hwy 5.
Day 6 San Felipe to Tecate - Our last day but definitely no easy one. leaving San Felipe behind in our dust. We'll cross over the La Salads dry lake bed and through the washes up to Hwy 3 then over to Vally T for fuel. Our final leg of this trip will take us to the Tecate boarder crossing where our journey will end and your truck and trailer will be waiting for you.
