TESTIMONIALS
"Baja Winters' caravans are unique among tours because the owners have listened to the wishes of RVers who have asked for an alternative to the often hectic pace and structure of the typical RV tour. Their trips won't cost you an "arm and a leg" and allow you time to relax, settle-in and truly come to know and experience Baja."

-Mexico West Magazine, April, 1993

BAJA WINTERS CARAVANS.
Just a quick note about our Hosts from Baja Winters caravan company. We
had heard about the Baja Winters Caravans on an RV website. We found
their website, contacted John and Becky and signed up for the tour. It
was the best decision we could have made. John, Becky and their son
Dustin have put together an outstanding tour of this incredible
Peninsula. Their love for Mexico, the culture and the people is evident
in every action and word along the way. They have more than 30 years
experience in the Baja and their surfing roots have taken them to every
corner and back road along the entire peninsula. Becky's interest in the
plant life and history provided an interesting narrative over the radio
as we covered the ever changing landscape. Their mission in not to baby
you or shield you from the reality of the Baja but instead to teach you
how to function in this foreign land while being respectful of the
culture and mindful of cautions that you wouldn't find north of the
border. Their insight into everything from language to traffic and
police procedures was invaluable in allowing us to feel comfortable in
this wonderful but foreign country. They feel they have achieved their
goal if you leave the tour feeling confident about traveling in this
beautiful and proud country. If you have always wanted to have an
adventure south of the border but have trepidations about traveling in a
different culture and language consider contacting John or Becky at
www.bajawinters.com. 
Thanks John, Becky and Dustin. We had a blast.

"We were on your Jan. 10th crossing. Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed the trip with Dustin as our wagonmaster. He has a great personality and did a super job. With all the instruction going down we had no trouble coming home on our own. Thanks again. We will recommend you guys."

"Marlies and I would like to thank you for bringing us safely down to the Baja and back up to the U.S. again!
Everything was well organized and you gave us very good information ahead of the journey, so that we would enjoy our time in the Cabo San Lucas area very much.
We would like to recommend your service to anyone who we talk to that is considering a trip to the Baja."

"....As this has been our first guided RV trip, we don't have any previous experience for comparison; but if they all are as knowledgeable and conscientious as you are, wagon masters must be special people. Keep up the good work; and don't lose your zest for life and concern for your fellow man."

We had long planned an extended trip to Baja California in a Jayco tent trailer, but were reluctant to do it alone because of my advanced age and some disabilities. We saw Baja Winters' advertisement in Good Sam's Trailer Life.
It was a trip rich with adventure, pleasure and comfort as a result of John and Becky's philosophy, experience, and knowledge of Mexico.
Their wide experience enabled me to eat at some splendid restaurants so much so we almost stopped cooking in our trailer while on the road. They knew the people who knew complex answers. They certainly took us to some fine RV parks, they chose well as we learned on looking at others
The Baja Peninsula is much different than mainland Mexico and I am certainly happy that we had such a skilled and ambitious wagonmaster because I had a far more satisfying trip with them than I had on my own on earlier trips to the mainland.
John Smith did everything he said he would and did it well and cheerfully. I am glad we went with them. The cost was well worth it.
Sincerely,
John and Nancy Howard

​"We were fortunate to find an escorted caravan service exactly suiting our needs. John and Becky Smith operate Baja Winters with a simple business proposition - they get you down and back safely, assuring a safe place to camp every night, providing great places to eat along the way, and keeping your tanks topped off with fuel. No hidden extras, no planned side trips, just a nice, leisurely trip down the peninsula with not more than two dozen other RVs. We met up with our group of terrified tourists at the Chula Vista KOA just south of San Diego at the end of January. John and Becky explained the routine to the assembled group, patiently answered all of our paranoid questions, and the next morning we were on our way across the border, heading south to our new adventure....

"By the third day we were wondering what exactly we'd been worried about. No banditos, plenty of beautiful scenery and a well-planned itinerary made for a leisurely trip down Baja. John and Becky had broken the caravan into 3 groups of 8, making it easier to get in and out of rest stops and gas stations. Each group stayed about half an hour apart as we worked our way south, meeting up each night at the designated campground. Traveling in smaller groups also made it easier for other travelers heading south, as passing a stretch of eight lumbering motorhomes was less challenging than 24....

"on day 4, as we crossed the spine of Baja from the west to east, we passed the oasis at San Ignacio and then we saw the Sea of Cortez at Santa Rosalia, and we were smitten. We stayed overnight at a beach called Playa Santispac, about 10 miles south of Mulege. Beautiful beaches, exquisite scenery, protected waters, a fabulous restaurant with delicious coconut shrimp... we were ready to just stay here for the winter. But we had a reservation awaiting us in Cabo, so we made a mental note to come back and spend more time here on our way back north.

"Once we'd seen the Sea of Cortez and felt the warm night air, we realized that we couldn't go wrong no matter where we ended up in Baja."

Hola Becky & John,
Just thought I would let you know we got home safely on Sunday – just over 6,600 miles door to door!
Thanks for the great tour of Baja – the grey whales were an experience never to be forgotten! I can see that travelling in Baja is not the terror trip that many imagine but by the same token, Maggie would never have gone without the security of your caravan.
All the best with your future trips.

ODE TO JOHN & BECKY
South of the border down Mexico way
Becky & John went down...took us along
showed us how to play!
Becky's cowbell soon told us that we could not stay
South of the border ....down Mexico way.

Oh they smile as they tell us 'mañana' 
For we know that the time's come for parting
There'll be just a few more  'tope-grande'
And we'll be on our way back home!

I don't think our lives could ever be the same after our Baja adventure.  Thanks again for the mentoring and encouragement to get out there and try it.  Susan has started a course in Spanish so that she will be able to better connect with the real Mexicans on our next trip.  She asks me every day if we can turn around and head back to Mexico for spring and more adventures.
Quizás nos reuniremos nuevamente en Baja. (Maybe we will meet again in Baja.)
Muchísimas.  (Thank you very much)
