insurance to protect your investments. We understand that there are in fact travel insurance companies that will cover cancellation penalties for any reason. 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.


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!

Yes!  Unfortunately the media has done a great deal in causing a worldwide concern for travelling 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 travelling anywhere in the world.   We invite you to join us to find out how magical Baja can be.
