Day 1 U.K. – Los Angeles
Upon arrival at LAX, you will be taken to the airport hotel where we will be able to enjoy the taste of a Corona to get in the mood. The team leader will give a short talk on the practicalities of the trip.
Day 2 Los Angeles – Ensenada (205 miles)
After picking up the motorbikes early in the morning, we will start with a long ride down to San Diego. A bit further on, we will cross the border and carry on through Rosarito and Lobster Village to Ensenada, a big Mexican haven that serves as a docking place for many cruise ships.
Day 3 Ensenada – El Rosario (170 miles)
We will leave the city along Highway 1 and get a taste of pure Mexico: tourism and American influences stop here. After passing through the Vizcaino Desert, with its enormous cacti, we will cruise along the Pacific. El Rosario, with its many little shops and restaurants, will be our resting place for the night.
Day 4 El Rosario – Guerrero Negro (225 miles)
First we will fill up our jerrycans as fuel can be hard to come by here. We will carry on inland through magnificent, mountainous countryside with wonderfully bendy lanes. Riding passed thatched houses might remind you of Spain.
Day 5 Guerrero Negro – Loreto (250 miles)
From Guerrero Negro, famous for its production of salt and its whales, we will continue on to the east coast. We will pass over Devil’s Grade, a well-known and notorious mountain road with many bends. In Santa Rosalia you may want to go for a little dip in the sea, as the paradise of white beaches are greatly tempting. Along the east coast we will head on to Loreto.
Day 6 Loreto – La Paz (225 miles)
Passing the red-brown rocks of Sierra de la Giganta, we will reach La Paz. This haven, with a population of 100 000, was founded in 1535 and is considered one of the nicest cities in Mexico. Our paradise hotel is conveniently located right on the beach.
Day 7 La Paz – Cabo San Lucas (130 miles)
Riding on along Highway 1 we will pass numerous little villages. The more south we go, the denser the traffic will become as we carry on to San Jose del Cabo, and Lands End, the most southern tip of Baja. We will stay the night in the marvellous Cabo San Lucas!
Day 8 and 9 Cabo San Lucas (free day)
After six days of motorbiking, you will enjoy resting in this luxurious resort. There will be time to relax on the beach, to stroll through the marina, or go souvenir shopping. You can go deep-sea fishing or take a glass-bottom boat ride, followed by a stupendous evening meal and drinks in a bar of your choice.
Day 10 Cabo San Lucas – Loreto (300 miles)
After two days of rest, we will start early today and embark on a long journey northwards. We will ride through Todos Santos, where we will find the famous Hotel California. You are advised not to check in however, because if you do – according to the famous song by The Eagles – you can never leave. It is worth mentioning that the road here looks completely different on our return journey because of the contrasting light fall. After a long day of riding inland, you will be pleasantly surprised by the brilliant vistas over the Sea of Cortez. There will be time for an evening stroll along Loreto’s boulevard.
Day 11 Loreto – San Ignacio (150 miles)
To start the day, we will continue along the coast, followed by beautiful, windy roads up to San Ignacio, where we can come to rest on the cute village square in this real oasis.
Day 12 San Ignacio – Catavina (220 miles)
We will follow the way up to Catavina. This day will be marked by ultimate silence, magnificent cacti, and power produced by an old generator. On tonight’s menu you can find simple, yet delicious food in a restaurant opposite our hotel.
Day 13 Catavina – Ensenada (205 miles)
The rough, dry terrain will slowly be replaced by green pastures. We will encounter more villages before reaching Ensenada again. Here, you will find so many fun bars to frequent that the evening will not seem long enough…
Day 14 Ensenada – Los Angeles (205 miles)
Up the coast via the Scenic Route, we will arrive at one of the busiest borders in the world, so it could take a while before we are able to continue our journey on better-quality American tarmac roads. In Los Angeles we will say farewell to our motorbikes and enjoy an all-American steak together in the evening accompanied by more Coronas to prolong the Mexican experience.
Day 15 Los Angeles – U.K.
Early in the morning you will catch the shuttle bus to the airport to hop on a flight back home. You do, however, have the choice of extending your stay in America. We will be happy to assist you in organising your additional wishes.
