Owner description: Now you get to experience the thrill in the driver’s seat! In the heart of the untamed Baja peninsula you get to drive in the safety of our custom built race cars, always within radio-shot of our experienced guides and the professional support crew of Wide Open Excursions! The closed course track is just outside Cabo San Lucas. Wide Open Cabo’s Baja Challenge (BC) racecars are not “dune buggies” or “sand rails”; they are the same cars that race in the Baja 1000. With Wide Open Adventures you will experience the thrill of racing in the Baja 1000. You will slide around sandy berms, view scenic trails, capture the true beauty of the Baja peninsula while safely strapped into a suspended racing seat by a 5-point safety harness system. Wide Open Cabo’s racecars are powered by 4 cylinder 2 liter engines that provide almost 200 hp. They are outfitted with off-road racing suspension and shock absorbers that provide 18” of suspension travel. We run exclusively on BF Goodrich All Terrain TA and Mud Terrain TA Tires. Each car is equipped with a 2 way radio system, internal intercom system, global positioning system, and fresh air filter.For as little as $395.00 USD, plus tax, you can strap yourself in one of our purpose built off-road race cars. Our staff will explain the safety precautions and provide you with some tips on how to handle these thrilling desert machines before tackling our off-road course. Three options are available, and while none of them require previous off-road experience, these cars have manual transaxles so experience in driving a standard shift vehicle is helpful.

I too wanted to mark off a "Must Do" on the Bucket list, but after the 1 day trip from Cabo to Todos Santos I have now added the multi day trip to be done within 2 years. If you enjoy excitement, fast driving, sight seeing and experiencing all of the great things to enjoy in Mexico " off of... More

During our trip to Baja, I surprised my boyfriend with a 1/2 day trip. It was an absolute blast! Despite the incredible things we did throughout our vacation, I feel like the drive was his absolute favorite. This is the real deal! I did not heed the warnings in the other reviews that the 1/2 day is just not enough...they... More

I had the best time ever with my husband during our Wide Open tour in Cabo. We took a half-day tour, lunch was included as well as cold bottled waters at each stop but it wasn't enough, we'll be back for more!

My wife and I had the best time on our 1/2 day Baja. we only regret that we didn't do more. My wife decided that next time we will be doing a multi-day trip. Don't make the same mistake we did and only book a 1/2 day, full day lunch run at a minimum because by the time you get... More

We recently finished a family vacation of a lifetime with a two day Wide Open trip Cabo-La Paz-Cabo. Yes, it was expensive, but the same price per person would get you a week on a first class cruise ship being herded like cattle from food buffet to shore excursion en mass, while this was two days of high adrenaline to...

If you like off roading or like extreme adventures go to Wide Open. I took the 2 day trip to La Paz and it was amazing. Ask for Darrin for your guide!!

This was the most fun. If you have the time I would recommend a whole day though. Our only mistake was booking a half day. Darren was a great lead car and we had so much fun!

Based on the recommendation of a friend, my wife and I decided to try Wide Open and we were very happy that we did. Paul V was our guide. He was great, provided a clear tutorial and was very understanding when we got stuck in some deep sand. We chose the 50 plus mile trip, which was just right. Anything... More
