We cannot advise on what the covered reasons are. You will need to discuss with your favorite travel insurance provider for more information about coverage and costs. There will be many cases where we will not be able to offer you and alternate travel date in case of hurricanes or natural disasters. Purchasing travel insurance will protect you.
Why does BFC not include Mexican fishing licenses in the cost of the trip?
Most of our guests already have a Mexican fishing license and that is the main reason why we don’t include the licenses. It will also keep that package cost low. Our web site has a link that leads to the web site to purchase Mexican fishing licenses. We suggest you purchase a yearly license as it is fairly inexpensive and we just know that once you go on a BFC trip you will be back for more!
Will I be safe in Baja?
Yes! We are very careful when in Mexico. When we are on the road, our goal is to get you safely to our destination. Unfortunately the media has done a great deal in causing a worldwide concern for traveling to Mexico. Most of the fishing destinations we offer in Baja are away from it all and off the grid. BFC recommends that you be cautious when traveling anywhere in the world. We invite you to join us to find out how magical Baja can be.
