Welcome to beautiful Los Barriles, Baja California Sur, Mexico!

 

This is the wilder side of Baja where desert meets mountain, all shored up against one of the most biodiverse bodies of water on the planet.  Our tiny seaside community is located directly on the sparkling Sea of Cortez, a spectacular vision that Jacques Cousteau famously termed, The World’s Aquarium. 

 

From blue water fishing to snorkeling to scuba diving to kite surfing to trekking into hidden waterfalls, Los Barriles is known for every cool adventure sport in the East Cape and having a brand new Quadman Baja sport vehicle at your disposal is the key to taking each sun splashed day to the next level, especially since most of the spots ready to be explored are only available by Quad. 

 

Our laid back, sporty town vibe keeps folks coming back year after year geared up to explore miles of white sand beaches, discover remote outposts for beach front fishing pitstops, gear up for rugged rambles down sandy arroyos to freshwater swimming holes in the middle of palm tree jungles…and really, just play with the inner-kid in you that simply wants to awaken your spirit, dominate the local trails and feel the fresh ocean breeze on your face 24/7 while cruising around in a Quadman Baja all-terrain sport vehicle!

 

Time to amplify your Los Barriles experience to legend status…

What is the difference between a quad, and ATV, and a side-by-side?

Each of the vehicles in our fleet operate on four wheels. Quads and ATVs (all-terrain vehicles) are one and the same -- the operator straddles the seat, and the steering control is via the handlebar. 

In contrast, side-by-sides offer a bit more room with traditional seats, steering control via a steering wheel with individual driver and passenger seats next to one another…just like a traditional car or truck.

Why rent a Quad in the first place?

Well, for starters, they are awesome to tool around on!  But more so, quads are the transportation mode of choice in Los Barriles.  They make getting around town simple and fun, whether you're beach hopping, zipping around the corner for fresh fish tacos, or headed into town for a massage or quick cappuccino fix.  It's only when you have the wind in your hair, the scent of exotic flowers in your nose, and an unobstructed view of the Sea of Cortez that your Baja experience truly comes alive.

 

What makes Quadman Baja superior to any other rental company?

At Quadman Baja, we have been creating unique Baja experiences for over twenty years – and we have been around longer than any other rental company in town.  As a locally owned company, we know what you're looking for, even if you don't.   From guided off-road adventures down riverbeds in the nearby Sierra de la Laguna mountains to snorkeling in the pristine waters of the Sea of Cortez, our knowledgeable staff will tailor an experience specifically for you, with unforgettable memories you'll cherish for a lifetime.

Helmets and baby seats are available for inclusion in your rental at no additional charge, and we offer 24-hour assistance should any need occur.

We can also provide coolers, snorkel gear and fishing rods upon request (additional charges apply).

Additionally, owner Ron Macrae has been an active member of the Los Barriles community for over two decades.  In addition to being a local business owner, Ron has given back to the community in numerous ways, including creating the town's first-ever animal shelter in conjunction with an international pet adoption program, personally founding a sidewalk improvement program for the streets of Los Barriles, as well as being active member of the local Rotary International chapter.

And don't just take our word for it; go ahead and check out our many five-star reviews on Trip Advisor...

Are quads safe and street legal?

Yes and yes!  In fact, their size and convenience make them a more common sight on the streets of Los Barriles than cars or trucks.  

Our top-of-the-line fleet is constantly being maintained by career professionals and mechanics, who make your safety their number one priority.  Before you step in the driver's seat, we work with you one-on-one to ensure you're comfortable and fully briefed on how to have a safe, fun experience.

Do I need to be able to drive a manual transmission/stick shift?

Absolutely not.   Each of the vehicles in our fleet has a fully automatic transmission.   

Over thirty years ago, Ron "Quadman" Macrae made his way down the Baja peninsula in search of wind.   As an avid windsurfer from Hood River, Oregon, he had heard about the windy, seaside paradise of Los Barriles and in 1988, he made Los Barriles his home.

In 2000, Ron (Quadman) opened his ATV & Mini Jeep Rental's in Los Barriles and has catered to many happy return renters ever since.

Being a lifelong animal lover Ron noticed a need for a humane society in the area and together with like-minded locals,

Ron founded A.L.M.A. Humanitaria, A.C. in February 2003 and served as its first president.  A.L.M.A. recently shuttered after 20 successful years. 

 

Now, Ron is heavily involved with the most successful animal adoption outfit in the East Cape, Cortez Rescue and Outreach.

Before moving to Los Barriles, Ron had a decade long real estate investment firm in San Francisco and prior to that, he was a Corporate Finance officer with Shearson American Express in New York.  A native of Seattle, Washington, Ron started his business career with the accounting firm of Peat Marwick and Mitchell's Seattle office as a corporate auditor.
