Now you get to experience the thrill in the driver’s seat! 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.

Great venue. 1/2 hr instructions. Then you drive 20 min to the desert track. Need to drive standard. We drove 10 laps around their track, all in a controlled, but fun environment. Got the cars up to 70 mph. Great time.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! Incredible experience in some outrageously fast and capable machines! These are not some little ATV or little beach buggy type vehicles. Theses are the real deal! Actual race vehicles that compete annually in the famous Baja 1000 desert endurance race! These babies fly! Each one is valued at $130,000 and have Subaru boxer engines and shock systems... More

A friend of mine who travels the world doing cool things said this is a MUST DO! She was right! This is the real deal! We were super lucky to be the only vehicle the day we went so we didn't have any of the dust or concerns of others on the course. Darrin was awesome and even let me... More

We have been vacationing in Cabo for approx. 15 years. We have done pretty much all activities offered but never Cabo Wide Open. Not much advertising for it but thought we would give it a try this year. Little over budget so we gave it as Christmas gifts for all (we did the lunch run). WOW All thought it was... More

We did the taste of baja 9 lap experience. When we called most of their cars were out on full and multi day tours, so I think they parted one together for us, as they were unsure they could accommodate us last minute but were able to. Cat still ran good and was fun. Our guide was great as well.... More

Coming from such a beautiful country like New Zealand it's hard to be impressed by new experiences. But Wide open was truly a life changing experience. Driving such an amazing machine through the desert truly goes unrivalled. You will zone-out and fall in love with your car and surroundings. Darrin is the perfect guide for all of this, he has...
