Peace Vans is hitting the road this winter for a Baja Adventure, bringing their vintage VW Vanagons to sunny Mexico for an exclusive pop-up vacation experience. For the first time, adventurers will have the opportunity to experience a Peace Vans curated camping trip in Baja, exploring new culture, exciting excursions, and scrumptious local cuisine while road-tripping and camping in expertly renovated 1980s vintage campers.
Peace Vans has partnered with local Baja-based businesses to offer just twenty-four vacation packages from January through April 2023, with custom-tailored itineraries that guide campers on a pre-planned loop for six nights and seven days around the peninsula.
Travelers drive on safe, main roads to pre-vetted and reserved private campsites in La Paz, Cerritos, La Ventana, and Los Barriles. At each destination, a wide range of epic adventures are offered, from swimming with whale sharks to surfing, kite surfing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, fishing. The experts at Peace Vans will help travelers custom-build their itinerary to suit their style of travel, from more relaxing excursions to downright high-energy adventures.
It has been a dream of Peace Vans Owner Harley Sitner to offer a “trip of a lifetime” vacation opportunity like this in Baja, as he reflects on special memories of the incredible experience he had traveling there with his 12-year-old child, Eden.
“Traveling in Baja is just a whole different world where you can relax, take your time, get away from work and technology, and just live in the moment enjoying nature and culture,” says Sitner. “Ever since my first trip down the peninsula in 1993, I’ve dreamed of deepening a connection to this special place, and after a recent road trip with Eden in a vintage VW Vanagon, I knew bringing Peace Vans there was the way to do it.”
One of the most important connections Sitner has secured to make these trips possible is his partnership with long-time friend and fellow vintage van expert Shane Jordan of Live the Van Life Restorations in La Paz. Shane and his wife, Karen, live full time in La Paz, where they are raising their young family and are thrilled to share the unique culture of Baja with the Peace Vans family.
All vans for Baja travel are restored by the experts at Peace Vans, headquartered in Seattle. With over $25,000 of work, each van has upgrades to make the camping and driving experience truly delightful. While traveling, customers have access to 24/7 support through Jordan and the Peace Vans team in La Paz. All questions and needs will be met on this amazing adventure—with the incredible service customers expect from Peace Vans.
Vacation packages are $2750 (taxes and fees included) for six nights/seven days and include a pop-up camper that sleeps up to four people, campground reservations (duration at each of the four locations are customizable based on excursion preferences and where travelers want to spend time), transportation to/from the airport, and concierge service to plan the best possible adventure itinerary. Additional nights can be added.
