Our first camping vacation in Mexico was in 1985 traveling in our Class B. Our children were small (2 & 4 years old) and our parents and friends thought for sure we would never be seen again. This 4 month adventure would be a life altering experience as we fell in love with Mexico. We traveled down Baja, moving from beach to beach, then took the ferry from Cabo San Lucas to Puerto Vallarta on the mainland. We spent most of December just outside of Acapulco in Pie de la Questa and were invited to a Mexican family’s home for Xmas in Mexico City before returning home to BC.
There is no doubt this experience changed our lives forever as we have continued to embrace RVing in Mexico in winter when possible, routinely since 2002. The Mexican camping experience is more than just tropical sun & fun, the culture and customs are truly unique and the people are wonderful, always willing to help and ready to make new friends that often last a lifetime.
Our love of Mexico was pivotal in our decision to start Baja Amigos RV Caravan Tours in 2008. Lisa’s 25 years of organizing camping fun & adventure for families with Girl Guides of Canada and Dan’s 30 years of experience working with people in diverse sectors of the economy including government and tourism ensure our tour delivers a Mexico camping experience of a lifetime.
Dan and Lisa were married in 1978 in Burnaby, BC, and have lived in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. They settled in Surrey, BC ten (10) years later in 1988 and have raised three (3) children who are now adults. Dan and Lisa share their house with Lisa’s Mom who has traveled and camped in Baja with them in the past.
Baja Amigos RV Caravan Tours offers one (1) 45-day tour in November through mid-December and three (3) 28-day tours in January, February and March. Our tours begin at the U.S./Mexico border descending down Baja California to Cabo San Lucas and return with the option to drop-off and pick-up on a later tour. Our tours are much more than just providing a great experience and adventure as we explore Baja California, Mexico’s magnificent peninsula. Our tours are designed to empower campers with the knowledge and confidence to return on their own to Baja Mexico for winters to come.
We specialize in traveling in small groups, a maximum of twelve (12) campers in each tour. Our tours are very unique because they include our shuttle van for over 1000 km of hosted on-tour excursions. Traveling with us is more than just being clients, we will treat you like good friends, believe us when we say this feels very different then RVing with 30 or 40 people. Dan is commercially licensed as an operator and Lisa is Emergency First Aid & CPR/AED certified. In the summer the Goy’s operate South Fraser Shuttles & Tours which specializes in Wine Tours, Event Shuttles and Private Charter Transportation within Metro-Vancouver, British Columbia.
