Family classes
1) I am travelling down to Baja with my kids. Can we take a class all together? Sure, you can even chose if you want to follow an intensive or a travelers program. For kids younger than 14 it's 1/2 price as long as you take the class all together.

-
Host families
1)
I'm a little concerned to live with a family. We visited all our host families and know them personally. They are very nice people, living in beautiful houses and you will have your own privacy. They are always very excited in receiving new students.
2)
Should I bring a present or something for the family? There is no obligation, but yourself don't you like to receive a small attention? If you want you can also decide to give a small present at the time of your departure but we repeat it: there is no obligation.

- Driving in Mexico
1) I heard that you need a Mexican car insurance to drive in Baja.  Tha'ts right, you need a Mexican car insurance to drive in Mexico (not only in Baja). A good way to get one is online, you can check out this place :
