and we deliver their impressions of travel

" Thank you again for the trip you have concocted .
We look at the photos and we do not get tired of landscapes so different from those of our daily Lyons and the sea of ​​Cortes with its beautiful colors ... our picture box is full of beautiful memories. We think well of you in your ranch located at end of end »

" A big thank you to the Mexcapade team who designed this
great trip to Baja California Sur:

the tour was beautiful, the providers of excursions (whale watching, boat trips and snorkeling in La Paz and Loreto) were very competent and the choice of accommodation perfectly met our expectations (small charming units and friendly welcome).

Bruno and Pascale

" Mexcapade organized a three-week stay
in Baja California with our two children of 3 and 6 years old.

From our first contacts, they have understood our desires and offer us a route that suits us.
Discreet but responsive, the availability and enthusiasm of the on-site team made our trip particularly easy. This is probably our best vacation "

" I entrusted all our logistics to the Mexcapade agency

Designer of naturalistic travels, I accompanied for 2 years a group of wildlife photographers in Baja to meet the gray whales and the extraordinary fauna of this region, the car with a guide, hotel reservations, the choice of sites to visit, the organization of trips at sea ...
Jean-Christophe and his team have perfectly met the expectations of my particularly demanding customers. His perfect knowledge of the place, his passion for the country and his immediate reactivity in case of unforeseen events are a real asset for the success of our travels: where to stop to take a picture of cardon cactus, what alternative if the sea is too strong to go out, recommendations of typical restaurants, where to find the coyote ... Mexcapade has answer to everything!
See you next year! "

" We have been living in Baja California for 3 years and we are very good at it.

Our very small French community has even allowed us to befriend other French people. In short, life is beautiful in Baja California! I advise you to visit this site to see for yourself the beauty of this region. This site belongs to a French couple settled in La Paz, the administrative capital of Baja California Sur .

" We thank you again for this beautiful trip,

we are very satisfied with your services. We also appreciated your proposal for debriefing, it is rather rare among tour operators. For us, it is a proof of seriousness, of respect of the customer and one feels by this way that you take your job to heart; so bravo. We will recommend you on the sites and forums and talk to you about friends who would be interested in the destination.

" We discovered Baja California by browsing the magazine Geo.

Intrigued and interested in the article, we surfed the Internet, viewed thousands of photos, read hundreds of web pages and a handful of guides on Mexico. This allowed us to determine what we wanted to visit, and the route that was associated with it. As it was very close to the circuit "Adventure in depth" proposed by Mexcapade, we chose this agency to finalize our project.
The conclusion is very clear: it was among the best holiday-discoveries we had. Thanks to Jean-Christophe Arbonne and the Mexcapade team. "

" We are back in Auvergne in the rain and cold.

We want to thank you for preparing us such a wonderful stay.
Everything was perfect and we are still under the charm of these fantastic landscapes of Baja California and especially our encounters with whales were incredible "

" It's been a week since Cathy and I returned from Baja California ...
and we have a hard time doing without this wonderful trip, especially since we had another snowstorm this week.

First of all, thank you for the beautiful course and the reservations, we keep in memory the wild and grandiose landscapes of the Sierra Giganta, the impressions of discovery of a new continent when we arrive on Bahia Conception or Bahia Chenque (Bahia Loreto), the kindness of Mexicans. We even took a Spanish course at a military checkpoint between Loreto and Santa Rosalia !.

So, thank you again for your welcome and your advice, a hello to your companion and good luck to Mariana for her emigration "

" We had 15 really beautiful days

on your beautiful peninsula, in a convertible Jeep, we crossed charming villages under the smiling glance of very welcoming Mexican ... We took 2,200 km, taking our time, several nights here and there, La Paz, Loreto, San Ignacio, Todos Santos, San Jose del Cabo ...
We were spoiled by wonderful and truly unforgettable excursions,
from our encounters with gray whales on the lagoon of San Ignacio to blue whales in Loreto, not to mention the two hundred dolphins that surrounded our boat north of Loreto and our "fresh" but delicious swim with the sea lions of Espiritu Santo ...
And we had a soft spot for the splendid road that leads to the San Javier mission and the two trails that lead to the lagoon of San Ignacio and the one that goes from San José del Cabo to Cabo Pulmo, a treat in Jeep!
It was when discovering your site that we wanted to make this trip and we really wanted to buy your book so a big thank you for this beautiful gift! "


" I'm so excited that for the first time ...

I post my trip story on the net! This trip is made for nature lovers, for people who like to venture where there are few tourists, and especially for those who like to see very close to the animals in their natural environment ...

Gray whales by the hundreds that can even make you the honor to let yourself be touched!, Magnificent dolphins, colonies of sea lions off sublime islands, pelicans and other wonderful birds (but I'm not an expert ...) and also opportunity to swim next to a whale shark in the bay of La Paz ... just wonderful ...

Not to mention the welcome of Mexicans, security in this part of Mexico and the beautiful Cactus who followed us throughout the trip.
If you are interested in this region of the globe, do not hesitate it's magic.


" This little word to tell you that we are delighted

nights spent under the yurt in San Ignacio in B & B, incomparable with the hotel, as well as the Kuyima association for their welcome at the campo de la Laguna with a great organization to see the whales.
The new damper performed well in the San Francisco range !! "


" Here we are back to Parisian reality ...

the time to recover from our emotions and this is how we are writing this email to thank you.

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed getting to know you and your partner. The organization of the stay was perfect. We found it very pleasant being both autonomous and at the same time guided by the different stages that you had planned. The stay was well punctuated between the road to be made and the different visits.

We especially enjoyed our two days in Todos Santos as well as our visit to San Ignacio (We would have gladly stayed one more day in this oasis ;-).
We also do not forget the beautiful landscapes that we could discover as we drove. In short, happiness !!!!! "

" Here we are back in Lyon and we already have the nostalgia ...

from our trip to California, but especially from our wonderful few days spent in Baja California.

La Paz really pleased us and staying during the short stay at El Angel Azul contributed to the magic of this discovery of a real Mexican city.

Only regret, we missed the whale sharks and we will be forced to return! We do not forget the very nice reception of Marjorie in La Bohème and we ask you to thank her on our behalf ".

" Hola Jean-Christophe! A little return on our journey

in "Baja Southern California". Fabulous, is the qualifier that for us, best defines this trip in a country with beautiful landscapes. The charming hotels, the desert, its tracks and its giant cacti, the ocean, the sea of ​​Cortez, the sea lions, the tiburon ballenas.

And then all these small cities Loreto, Santa Rosalia, Todos Santos, San Ignacio and I forget ... the sweetness of life of people, their welcome.

La Paz, a city full of charm where it is good to walk on the malecon, a lot of good restaurants, Bohemia a jewel among others (hello Marjo).

And the beaches .. fabulous, with its beautiful waters and colors.

Now I understand your passion and attachment to this corner of paradise.

The only downside of this trip was ... the return home.

It was the most beautiful trip we had, the words will never express all our feelings and all the emotions and well-being that we experienced during this stay. Thank you Jean-Chri and Marjo for everything. "

" Jean Christophe, the 18-day trip to Baja California ended successfully.

First of all, I would like to tell you that he was successful and that we are fully satisfied.

Impeccable organization, only very good hotels with each character, with nights in yurt in San Ignacio and in the terrace suite in La Paz are unforgettable.

Excursions and routes very well chosen but a few more days in La Paz we would have much more ... »

Gabriel and Simone

La Paz: Impeccable hotel (our favorite of the circuit) especially in the suite, excellent reception and well located.

Excursion island Espiritu Santo: perfect, well organized, picnic ok, our guide took care of everything we discover with excellent explanations. Birds, dolphins, sea lions were at the rendezvous. Excellent!

In return, visit the beaches and lunch on the beach Tecolote.

Whales: Kuyama was excellent, welcome and explanations to the village, then whale briefing and tour by the camp guide and then boat with the leader of the camp "Toto" that I recommend because it has a sensational approach to whales, not more than a plancha around the whales, and finally a very good meal at the camp's restaurant. Thanks to Mexcapade and Jean-Christophe.

" I am writing to thank you for organizing our tour through Baja California.

It was a memorable trip where everything was really excellent at all levels and our satisfaction really exceeded our hopes.

The hotels, the interesting places to visit, the site tours, and even our guide, everything was perfect, even the hotels where we had the chance to meet some really charming people in amazing places that we will never forget.

We also had the pleasure of meeting Jean-Christophe and we wanted to thank him especially for all the attention he gave to the preparation of our trip.

Thank you to all your team and we hope to have the opportunity to return soon in Baja California to greet you ... "

" How could I forget this wonderful trip

in Baja California organized by you? It was one of my best reports for many years.

This South-Californian Mexico literally knocked me out and I think about it a lot.
It is one of the few destinations in the world where I felt so many emotions and where I tell myself that it could be a place to live for its balance of human being ...

It was very hard to go back to France, really ... "

" I can really say it's a" perfect travel "!

For me, it's a no-fault. Of course there is the country and its inhabitants, but to reach them, you need a good receptive and you are one. I will not fail to praise the seriousness and originality of your work at my Association of travelers of the Côte d'Azur, especially on June 17 during my conference on Mexico. For all this, Gracias!


" Our trip went very well. Extraordinary landscapes.

Special mention for Bahia Conception and the sea of ​​Cortes. The whales were at the rendezvous. Experience out of the ordinary! Santa Rosalia is definitely worth a visit. We feel at the Far-West Gold Rush version! Hotel Frances was really nice.
Gaëlle is always ready for whale sharks ... "


" Impeccable organization and timing, very warm welcome ..

El Fuerte: very nice hotel (Posada del Hidalgo) in a small town undergoing historical restoration.

The hotel is a real museum. Magnificent ! Train (El Chepe): nice trip, a bit long on the end. Hotel Posada Barranca Mirador: superb location of this big hotel that sees the tourists.
