We’re going to let you in on a little secret.
Living the QuadLife in the East Cape of Baja is the game-changer, especially if you’ve never had the pleasure of riding one. Trust us…and the thousands that came before you. If you are going to do Baja, you need a set of Quad keys.
Taking possession of a sporty Quadman Baja vehicle is the #1 vacation must do…especially in the tiny fishing village of Los Barriles, a place where the sun never stops, miles of unexplored beachfront are waiting to be explored and the adventures just keep on coming.
The wilder side of Baja that we have the honor of calling home will keep you coming back year after year.
Welcome to Los Barriles….

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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 handlebar.
In contrast, side-by-sides offer a bit more room with traditional seats, steering control via a steering wheel, and individual driver and passenger seats that are next to one another, just like a traditional car or truck.
Aside from off-roading, is there really any other point to renting a quad?
100%, yes! Quads are the transportation mode of choice in Baja, especially so in Los Barriles. They make getting around town simple and fun, whether you're beach hopping, zipping around the corner for tacos, or headed into town for a massage. It's only when you have the wind in your hair, the smell of flowers in your nose, and an unobstructed view of the Sea of Cortez that your Baja experience truly comes alive.
What makes Quadman superior to any other rental company?
At Quadman, we have been creating unique Baja experiences for over twenty years. We know what you're looking for, even if you don't. From guided off-road adventures in the nearby Sierra de la Laguna mountains to snorkeling in the pristine water of the Sea of Cortez, our knowledge staff will tailor an experience specifically for you, with memories you'll cherish for a lifetime.
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.

Are quads safe?
Yes. Our fleet is maintained by career professionals, 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.
Helmets and baby seats are available for inclusion in your rental at no additional charge, and we offer 24-hour assistance should your need arise.
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. No prior ATV experience is necessary.
Are quads street legal?
They are. In fact, their size and convenience make them a more common sight on the streets of Los Barriles than cars or trucks.
Are there any age restrictions regarding quads?
In order to ensure the safety of our customers, divers must be at least 14-years-old to operate a quad/ATV, and must be at least 25-years-old to operate a side-by-side.
Customers of all ages are welcome as passengers in our vehicles, and we offer baby seats and helmets for inclusion at no additional charge.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards, person checks, and PayPal payments.
Do I need an advance reservation? Are walk-ups an option?
Whichever works for you! Feel free to reach out to us in advance, or stop in once you arrive in Los Barriles.
Ron "Quadman" Macrae has called the tiny village of Los Barriles home since 1998. His introduction to the East Cape area started over 30 years ago, in 1988 when he traveled down the peninsula in search of wind. As an avid windsurfer from Hood River, Oregon, he had heard about the windsurfer "paradise" of Los Barriles. Ron (Quadman) opened his ATV & Mini Jeep Rental's in Los Barriles, B.C.S. in 2000 and has catered to many happy renters ever since.
While living and working in Los Barriles, Ron, a lifelong animal lover, saw a need for a humane society in the area. 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 closed down after 20 successful years.
Now, Ron is heavily involved with the brand new adoption outfit in the East Cape, Cortez Rescue and Outreach.
