origin story

21 years ago, 5 good pals and their 3 rogue kids pointed south in an RV for 14 days on a quest for the best fish tacos + margaritas. They hit every roadside taco stand, drank salty margs + ice-cold beers, laughed with locals, slept under the stars and skipped showers for days. Days were simple, free-spirited, sun-soaked. No watches, no worries. By the time they crossed the border in Tijuana with salt on their lips and soulshine in their eyes, the best fish tacos & margaritas were still out there... at that moment a vision was born...el jet’s cantina + sky outpost.

Coming in 2025, bringing Baja to you     - Jen Taylor, founder

renovating vintage caravans

The Kickstarter campaign funding helped renovate and customize 11 vintage silver bullets into dreamy vacation pods for nightly/weekly/monthly 4-season rentals. Artisans Ryan Smith, Tim Navin + Jenny James are the craftsmen/artisans making it happen. Each custom reno will sleep 2-4+ and feature french doors opening onto a shady deck with epic views, queen bed, fold-out couch/bed, mini-split climate control, library lounge + coffee/laptop station. 'The Betty' is being built-out right now in Riverside, next to the property. We have 11 caravans (5 Spartans, 4 Airstreams, 1 Silver Streak, 1 Airfloat)... your contribution helped bring these 11 badass beauties to life!
