Meet Gustavo Perez and Daniel Lizarraga of Uncover Baja in Chula Vista and San Ysidro

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gustavo Perez, Daniel Lizarraga.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Gustavo, Daniel. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Well, all of these started many years ago, when Dany and I met in a Math class in college. We realized that we both share the passion for traveling, meeting iconic people and cultures. Then we started to travel regularly together to many cities and countries. We hired many tourist guides to tell us the stories of each city and to take us to the nicest spots. Then we thought we could do that in our city, you know show the city and take visitors to the places that we usually go for a drink or a nice taco in a hidden gem. Saying that we started to bring our coworkers and friends from the US. It was successful, the idea of all of this was to provide our customers with a relax and nice time. We didn’t want to rush them or leave them alone, instead, we treated them as our family and take them with the locals go. We didn’t have a schedule for the trip. We can go for a nice tour to Tijuana or we can go all the way to Valle de Guadalupe and enjoy the wine country; with numerous wine tastings and the best food. So, that is what we are, a couple of friends having s good time with people, enjoying a nice cold beer, a glass of wine and a nice talk. We love to meet people and listen to stories. That is our way to work.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I believe it’s been smooth, we love what we do and people love it. Who doesn’t like to have a good time right?

Tell us more about your business.
We are Uncover Baja. We are an enthusiast group of friends that provide the best daycation in Baja. We visit breweries, street food stands, we do wine tasting and visit many delicious restaurants. We operate in Tijuana and Valle de Guadalupe. I think what sets us apart from the others is that our main goal is to make our client our friend, and we can see them again. We also like to take our people to the nicest hidden spots all over the city.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We would like to stay the same for now… visit our friends in Valle de Guadalupe and Tijuana. It is nice that when we visit a friend’s wineries, they wait for us with a nice cheese board and a bottle of granache. So we want this to keep it simple and unique. I believe the experience is worth it.
