to the Field:
Baja Paintball is an easy drive south of the San/Diego Border, often taking no more than half an hour to get to. There really is no way to get lost since you have to find a huge blue hydroponic tower and use the next possible exit. First time i went there, we had to go through an awful dirt road (which was actually kind of fun) and my expectations plummeted but it's a short ride.
Review: However, once i got there in full, the parking facilities were top-notch, everything was clean and surprisingly free of paint splatter. Once you get there an employee hits you up and runs you through the rules and instructs newbies on how to play, then they assign a referee to shadow you the ENTIRE DAY, which was great because they are very cordial, friendly and outgoing. Our referee was a fantastic dude, very quick on paint checks, always in the thick of things despite the danger of being shot, and quickly setting up games with other groups that showed up, resulting in games exceeding 30 players in the larger scenario maps that open up with enough people.

The rest and ready area was a covered and comfortable array of large tables, which were very convenient and there are even grills for carne asadas and stuff. People can just arrive and leave all their stuff there without risk of it being stolen.

There are a great variety of paintball courses, 13 in all. They go from small urban-style maps like Kuwait to huge woodsball ones like Colombia. They are all just fantastic fields and everyone will find them very well done and enjoyable. Prices are very low and reasonable, air fills are like 20 pesos. There's a small side-window where they immediately repair or replace faulty rental markers for free.

Bathrooms were clean, and when we got there the employees were hosing off paint and putting trash away, while a truckload of boxes with paintballs was being unloaded. There is food at the camp, energy drinks and whatever you might need there. What i did love was the fact you paid a one-time fee of $15 for the entire day's stay, which is great since the place is so big you'll spend plenty of time walking from field to field.

There is also none of the stuck-up attitude most fields in the U.S. display, although it's far from a lawless free for all. Chrono tests aren't required but they will ask you to shoot a couple of times there if they think you're shooting hot. In the bigger games, multiple referees with shields show up to see if no one's cheating or wiping paint. Everything felt professional but not at all intimidating, most of the referees are veteran airball players so they are unobstructive and know how to move.

I just joined pbreview.com to recommend this great field to everyone interested. Many people are kind of queasy when they find out it's in Mexico, but i must tell you it was a fantastic, fun and relatively inexpensive trip. Will definitely go there again soon.
