About the Mission Base
Large & Safe Mission Base
Go Missions to Mexico's Mission Base is located about 4 hours South of San Diego, CA. The facilities are designed to accommodate short-term mission teams and can accommodate 230 people in bunk beds and over 500 people if camping is desired. The base is fenced, gated and very secure.
The mission base is located on 13 acres and has 4 separate facility tracts, each with their own kitchens, dining halls, meeting rooms, showers (with hot water), bathrooms (with flushing toilets), dorm rooms (with cushions on the beds), and parking areas.
Each short-term mission team will have its own lodging tract for its use while on the base. Teams don't share facilities or go to the same church. Each team is its own separate team, with its own lodging facilities, and going to its own specially chosen church.
Because the base has 4 separate facility tracts, we can host more than one mission team at a time which increases ministry impact.
The mission base is clean, fenced in, and safe. It is located in a serene setting with a distant view of close-by beaches. It provides the perfect place to retreat to after a full and rich day of ministry. Beaches are about a mile away. More about beaches
Each lodging tract is a little different in size in order to better accommodate different sized mission teams.
Here's a breakdown of how many dorms, showers, and bathrooms your team will have for its use on the mission base depending on your team's size:
Facility Track 1 (for teams of 40-100)
Has 14 dorms, 12 showers, and 6 flushing toilets.
Note: For teams larger than 100, we combine two or more facility tracts together for your convenience.
Facility Track 2 (For teams of 30-60)
Has 8 dorms, 10 showers, and 6 flushing toilets.
Facility Track 3 (For teams of 20-40)

Facility Track 4 (For teams of 10-30)
Has 4 dorms, 6 showers, and 4 flushing toilets.
For all facility tracts, we allow mission team leaders to be in charge of assigning dorms to their mission team members.

The mission base has 2 volleyball courts, basketball court, campfire areas, Bar-B-Q’s, large fields for games, and quiet areas!

We provide 5-gallon jugs for your team to use that will be filled up at your arrival. Thereafter, drinking water can be bought at any local store for about $.80 cents for 5 gallons. The Valley of San Quintin is sunny year-round and it's important for team members to keep hydrated. Every team member should have a personal water bottle with them at all times for drinking water and should use them when brushing their teeth etc.
There is electricity available in all kitchens, dorms, bathrooms, shower areas, meeting areas and outside as well. Electricity is the same as in the U.S. No need for converters or special devices!
The mission base is fenced and gated. It has plenty of room for parking vehicles no matter what the size. There is always someone on the mission base to watch and care for everything, and the gate is locked at night. One of the unique positives of our area is that it's not a border town and we’re located in a rural, farming area with no threats of any kind.
For those wondering about laundry facilities, the mission base offers Mexican-style washing machines (washing by hand in sinks, and hanging clothes on our clotheslines), however, there is a laundry mat about 5 miles away where clothes can be washed if needed. Most mission team members just do whatever washing they need to in sinks realizing that they’re on a mission trip where life is a little rustic.
