There is one thing that gets MotoQuest Phil Freeman through his cold Alaskan winters – the thought of warming up on a gorgeous two-wheeled adventure from either Los Angeles to San Jose del Cabo or San Jose del Cabo to Los Angeles. Whether you decide to travel Southbound or Northbound, one thing is certain – you’ll be making memories that will last a lifetime while also escaping that last bit of winter chill. 

If the thought of beautiful coastline discovered on two wheels, some fresh ceviche, and toes in the sand doesn’t get you to flood our inbox with requests for this adventure, maybe a few photos will do the trick. But as we ALWAYS say, the photos, and even videos, don’t do it justice.

Top Five Things You’ll Enjoy on Your Adventure to Baja

#1 – The sunsets and sunrises will be hard to beat as your toes squish the sands along the beaches.

#2 – The culture and the people you’ll encounter will make you want to come back again, and again (like we do).

#3 – After a solid day on the bike exploring, the accommodations will have you relaxing with an incredible view.

#4 – The roads are absolutely spectacular!

#5 – Petting a whale is a side trip that you’ll be telling your friends about for years to come (watch a video of it here)

If you’re more of a video watching kind of person, we grabbed Phil to have him go into a little more detail on the trip, and what it’s like to travel south of the border. He paints a warm and beautiful picture, doesn’t he?

So what do you think? Ready to have a date on the calendar you can look forward to this winter? Pick your escape plan now!
