Although there are plenty of opportunities to kick back and relax in San Felipe, there are also a few ways to get your heart pumping and really kick things up a notch. One fast and furious way to add some excitement to your vacation is by renting an all terrain vehicle and taking it for a ride.

A very popular ATV rental company in San Felipe is San Felipe Off Road. They offer two exciting options for their ATV rentals. You can rent an ATV by the hour to use on their large ATV park, complete with twists, turns bumps and dips to maneuver through, around and over. You can also take an ATV on a guided adventure tour through the foothills of Scorpion pass or a beach trip along the beautiful Sea of Cortez. If you choose to rent an ATV by the hour, there is a $100 damage waiver required per ATV. You will need a valid drivers license in order to rent. A responsible adult must accompany anyone under the age of 16, and all ATVs are single rider only.

Another great option is taking the 2.5 hour guided adventure tour, and there are a few scenic options to choose from. The Mountain Run adventure tour takes riders around ancient Mexican volcanoes and over Scorpion Pass. The beach run takes riders to the northern-most estuary on the Sea of Cortez. Not only does the beach run provide a gorgeous view of the sea, but when you arrive at your destination you can ride on the wide open beaches, looking for shells and exploring the tidal zones make for a memorable and exciting trip.

If you’re looking for a more in depth ATV adventure, The Rancho Cajon adventure trail has now been added to San Felipe Off Road’s trip itinerary. This 6-hour tour takes riders along the front range of San Pedro. Lunch is provided and this tour costs $165 per rider.

San Felipe Off Road is not some hole-in-the-wall ATV rental company. They are a well-established company made up of people who are passionate about off -roading and do it on a daily basis. Their love and knowledge for the ATV experience is used to enhance the experience of the riders that rent from them.  Because everyone at SFOR loves riding and racing, they want to make sure that everyone can enjoy the experience regardless of their skill level. Whether you’re a first time rider or an ATV expert, San Felipe Off Road can make sure you have a safe and enjoyable ride through the ever-changing landscapes of San Felipe. 

Another great option for renting an ATV is very simple if you are staying in a fully furnished condo or vacation home through My San Felipe Vacation. When you make a reservation, we make renting ATVs easy. While making a reservation for your rental home online, you will have the option of including ATV rentals as part of your reservations. This is the preferred method for our guests as this ensures an ATV is waiting and ready to go just for you on arrival. Note that including the ATV  option as part of the reservations is only available for daily rentals. Hourly ATV rentals is not a currently available option. Current rates are $200 per day for 250cc ATVs for ONE ATV. When you rent 2 or more ATVs, rental rates are $150 per ATV per day.

Before you take charge of the ATV and head off, you will be required to sign a rental contract, which absolves the rental company of liability. Also, you are responsible for any damage to the ATV. So if you are new to riding ATVs, you will want to take your time getting comfortable with its handling.

Racing and riding ATVs is a serous pastime in San Felipe. San Felipe is famous for hosting the Baja 250 races during the first week in March. Thousands of riders and speed enthusiasts come from all over for a week of a series of races that include the Baja 1000, Baja 500 and Primm 300The event includes various types of vehicle from small and large motorcyles, buggies, trucks and custom fabricated race vehicles. The course has remained relatively the same over the years with the majority of events being a loop race starting and finishing in San Felipe.  Locals in San Felipe enjoy the thrill and speed that comes with racing on an ATV, and they are eager to share the experience with people who come to visit.

A quick search online for reviews on San Felipe experiences will pull up countless rave reviews such as this one, listed on SFOR’s website:

"We're home now but are still reminiscing about the buggy adventure you provided. We both had a great time and I'd do it again in a minute. And thanks for the additional information on the history, flora and fauna of the area. It's obvious you really enjoy what you do and that you have a great appreciation for Mexico and it's peoples. The next step may be a contract race using one of your Class 9 buggies. Again, thanks for a great experience."

Safety is always the main concern when trying something new and adventurous, and the experts and guides involved in the ATV rentals will make sure you feel 100% comfortable on the vehicle and will answer any questions you may have. ATVs are not hard to navigate, and once you get a hold of it, you’ll be cruising through San Felipe like a pro. Riding an ATV is a fun and exciting way to see San Felipe flora, fauna and wildlife that you might not see from your beach chair or fishing boat.

San Felipe Off Road is open every day during the week except Tuesday, and reservations are only accepted for the first hour of each day and must be made and paid for no later than 3pm the preceding day. All other rentals are on a first come first served basis.
