The Baja Peninsula is one of the longest and most isolated peninsulas in the world. It is surrounded by the Sea of Cortez on the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The Baja Peninsula runs about 800 miles south of the California and the Mexico border. Most of our trips begin in La Paz which is about 90 miles north of Los Cabos which is found the very tip – land’s end. Magdalena Bay is just across on the Pacific side. If you head up the east coast you will reach Loreto in about 4 hours. The San Ignacio Lagoon is another four hours over to the Pacific coast. The ability to easily explore both sides of this dynamic peninsula in only one week makes it ideal for travelers who want it all.

From the Indians who populated it to the cowboys who tried to settle it and later turned to the oceans for a friendlier frontier – Baja has always beckoned to a diverse set of travelers. Settled as Spanish, taken by the French and left behind by most Americans, the Baja Peninsula represents an untouched frontier. Baja gained notoriety as one of the most extreme off-road motor races, the Baja 1000, and also for the luxury hotels that surround the tip, Los Cabos or San Jose del Cabo. What few people realize is that anyone can comfortably visit the natural wonders that have been protected by the relative isolation and once treacherous terrain; you just need a little help from Custom Coastal to ensure you experience the very best of Baja. Far from the border problems, Baja Sur is safe and specifically omitted from US Travel Warnings.
