Today's van life vlog takes place in Baja California Sur where we wake up with our converted Sprinter Van stuck at the beach! You can't get too upset if you get to wake up along the ocean in Mexico in your tiny house. Then, I (Bec) get up to my ideal day while Eamon enjoys a day without me trying an extreme sport he has ALWAYS wanted to try... KITEBOARDING! We hope you enjoy seeing a day in our life that is a little separate from one another :)
We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!
The Traveling Van Life in Mexico; hot, sticky, but oh so much fun!

    Eamon & Bec 😅 Btw, I just wanted to let you know that, usually people from "Baja" don't like when you don't specify what part of the Baja you're at. Like, everything under Guerrero negra is Baja California Sur! 😂😂 I know we are weird, but we have a little rivalry between the bajas 😂

    I kinda love you guys. You are super not annoying . I actually was telling my boyfriend how surprised I am that you guys aren't annoying at all. I said "probably because they aren't American". Which I don't even know what that means because I am American.. Maybe I'm super annoying! Ha! Should be studying but instead watching your videos. Peace.

    ❤ Cilantro. I love seeing more van lifers visiting Baja, people love to sell fear. Its like any country, you have your rich areas and poor areas and if you go flashing your wealth like an ass, you will get jacked. NOT any different from any other country, every country has good people and bad people. Mexico has some of the most beautiful beaches, so much culture and amazing people. I love it!Thank for sharing your adventure😁

    The "main" men in my life (father, brother and hubby) all hate cilantro, but while my dad and bro are very consistent with hating it and can sense when it's in something, my husband can have it if he doesn't know it's in the food so I don't really believe him that he hates it LOL. I've always absolutely loved it.

    Hey guys, pro tip, you should probably stop saying "Cómo estás" to people you don't really know. That's the informal "you" and they could find it offensive, and it definitely makes you sound like a tourist. When talking to strangers, especially those older than you, safer to use "Cómo está usted."

    No, actually, Los Barriles is not THE place to kiteboard. La Ventana, an hour north of Los Barriles is all that and more. Because of the lay of the land, with mountains to the north, west and south, the desert heats up and creates awesome thermals and if it is combined with an El Norte, it can just howl. I talked to a non kiter a while back from Los Barriles who was visiting La Ventana, and her comment was, "Is it always this windy here?" Los Barriles is really nice, but has a very large expat community and is more of a fishing community. La Ventana is an eclectic mixed community. Once a tiny Mexican fishing village that because of the wind and distance from an international airport, never became a fishing tourist destination (more like Los Barriles), the windsurfers, then kiteboarders discovered it back in the late sixties/early seventies and kept it fairly quiet. It's only been within the last ten years that many of the main roads to the area have gotten paved and the area has now become one of the leading world wide kiteboarding destinations. The area swells with people from all over the world from the end of October until the end of March, seeking the wind. The community remains a small Mexican village throughout the rest of the year, with very few expats remaining year round.
