You can pay the remaining 70% with a credit card or debit card at our office. However, remember that if you decide to pay with a debit card, you´ll always need a valid credit card for security and insurance reasons.

We offer the full 30% refund if you cancel with more than 30 days notice.

Where do I pick up my Sampa?

We are located in Sierra Dorada, Carretera Transpeninsular km 6.5 fracc. Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S. 23455 (By Sporti-K)

The closest airport is Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) 

How many people can fit in the car ?

Depends on the type of car you are interested in renting. We recommend 4 people per car. If you are  planning to include a lot of gear we recommend the RAM due to its size. 

Do you help plan our trip?

Yes, we are happy to help you personalize your trip depending on your interests for an additional fee.  We will also share with you a booklet with a list of campsites, places and activities for free.

Do you also offer guided trips?

Not yet, but we can connect you with partners that do.

Do I have to return my Sampa clean?

It’s always nice when Sampers return the car in good shape, inside and outside. We do not require you to return the Sampa completely clean, but if it is exceptionally dirty, requiring difficult stain removal or other special cleaning efforts, we will charge an additional cleaning fee to get it ready for the next Sampers.

Traveling in Baja

Are there safe places to camp?

Baja California has a wealth of great camping. There are safe private and non private campgrounds on this vast peninsula.

Where can I get groceries for my trip?

In every town you´ll find an abarrotes store (cheapest option) where you can buy everything you need and more. There are also supermarkets in the city like Walmart if you are looking for something more specific.

Are bonfires allowed in the beaches?

Yes they are, as long as you make them responsibly. Make sure you select a place that is far from potential fire hazards. And when you’re done, before going to sleep, turn it off, cool the sand with water and bury any remaining embers. Cleanup so that you leave no trace when you leave.  

Can we drive in the sand?

Our 4×4 Sampas won´t have a problem with that, but turtles might. Driving in the sand can cause sand compaction above nests resulting in lower nest success.
