We first visited Mexico in 1985 with our two children, Kirsty and Kenneth, then 4 and 2 years old. We had planned to go with friends who had traveled extensively in Mexico, but when it came time to depart, they bailed on us and we went alone.
Our families were frantic, convinced it was profoundly unsafe, we would be murdered, and our kids would be kidnapped. In summary, they would never see us again. Their fears were unfounded, but the trip was an adventure that would change our lives forever.
Our experiences on Baja and then mainland Mexico were the foundation that led us to create Baja Amigos RV Caravan Tours in 2009, and we have operated it continuously ever since.
With the Pacific Ocean on the West and the Sea of Cortez on the east, Baja California has twice as much coastline as the state of California. The completion of the 1,061-mile Mexican Federal Highway No. 1 from the U.S. border to Cabo San Lucas turned this magnificent peninsula into a camping destination, with RVers staying on beaches, in the desert and at RV parks and campgrounds.
