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. « less

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

We did the Half Day Baja Challenge on the last day of our Cabo trip and it was the perfect way to cap off our vacation. The entire experience was a positive one from start to finish. We could not have asked for a better guide (Paul V) who was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and a super nice guy. He provided... More

Nothing better than blasting through the beautiful back country behind the wheel of a Wide Open Race buggy! Cars are well equipped and capable of handling the roughest terrain. This is definitely an experience you will not forget. Guide Paul Veluscek was outstanding! Put this on your list... You will be glad you did. John Streeper Atlanta, GA
