They share a common element that keeps them exploring this land: the charm, beauty and the purity of its far-reaching corners, the contrast between the harsh desert and the sea and the richness of the different species that inhabit them.

Meeting while exchanging opinions in a Baja online forum, they stayed in touch for the common desire of making known the essence of Baja and introducing a more deep and authentic experience to others.

Timeless Baja is the result of this desire and their passion.
