Day 1

Arrival in San Jose del Cabo

Arrive and transfer to Hotel Blue or similar in La Paz. Welcome dinner and trip briefing.


Day 2-5

Sea of Cortez and Isla Espiritu Santo Glamping Adventure

Espiritu Santo National Park in the Sea of Cortez is part of a UNESCO World Heritage
Site, and is one of the best marine life viewing destinations in the world. Whales,
dolphins, whale sharks, sea turtles, manta rays and plenty of beautiful tropical fish
call the surrounding waters home, while a terrific range of bird species including
Blue-footed Boobies, Reddish Egrets, Great Blue Herons and Yellow-footed Gulls
frequent the island’s skies and shores. The island itself is stunning, with magnificent
towering cliffs, spectacular sandy bays, amazing lava rock formations, and rock art
left by the now-extinct Guaycura and Pericu Indians. There’s even an endemic ring-
tailed cat, the babisuri. It’s a remarkable place to explore. We’ll spend the days
kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, swimming with sea lions, swimming with whale sharks,
stand up paddle boarding, bird watching, and exploring hidden lagoons and desert
beaches.

We have a base camp on one of the island´s most beautiful beaches that features
beautifully decorated walk-in safari-style tents with real beds, lovely linens, bedside
tables, lanterns, beach towels, storage space, rugs, chairs, and more. Espiritu Xantus
Café is where our on-site chef makes wonderful meals for you every day – and daily
happy hour of course - and there are two sun showers and two compost toilet
cabañas.


Day 5

Return to La Paz

We’ll return from Espiritu Santo around 3:00 PM and enjoy dinner and overnight in
La Paz at Hotel Blue or similar.


Day 6-7

Magdalena Bay Whale Watching Adventure

Magdalena Bay is the largest wetlands ecosystem on the west coast of Baja and one
of the most important in North America. The World Wildlife Fund ranks it as one of
the most important coastal habitats in Mexico. The Bay is the prime calving ground
for the gray whale, and January to March it is possible to see – and often pet - a
large number of whales, including mothers and calves. Magdalena Bay also has
mangrove forests, barrier beaches and sand dune islands, all of which contribute to
the incredible scenery and biological diversity of the area.

On Day 6 with drive about 4.5 hours to Magdalena Bay, have lunch in one of the
local restaurants, then head out on the water for 3 hours of interacting with the
amazing gray whale mothers, babies, young couples and old codgers. Dinner and
overnight at Magdalena Bay. On Day 7 we’ll have breakfast, then get in three more
hours of observing and hopefully touching and gazing into the eyes of the gray
whales. We’ll then head back to Todos Santos with a celebratory lunch stop on the
way.

On day 7 evening we return to Todos Santos we’ll check into a lovely hotel for our final evening.
We’ll enjoy a wonderful meal at Santo Vino, Chef Dany Lamote’s love letter to Baja.
