Baja Snorkeling and Sierras Private Journey

Todos Santos, Sierra de La Laguna, and Isla Espíritu Santo

Trip Level

This journey is rated a 2+ and is appropriate for anyone in good health who is physically active and enjoys regular moderate walks and hikes, but please consider the following factors when choosing this trip:

Terrain

Guided hikes in the mountains are on open terrain as well as rocky trails with uneven terrain leading to waterfalls and canyons. You should have walking or hiking shoes with good traction. For snorkeling activities on Isla Espiritu Santo, trip members should be able to swim and, ideally, have previous snorkeling experience. Snorkeling is a major attraction on the island. A variety of snorkeling equipment is provided for trip members, but if you are a serious snorkeler, we highly recommend bringing your own snorkel, mask, and possibly fins to assure a proper fit. No previous sea kayaking experience is necessary.

Weather

The weather from November through April is generally perfect, with highs during the day in the mid to upper 70s and lows at night in the upper 50s to mid-60s. There may be windy days that can have an impact on certain adventures, and there is the occasional rainy day in those months as well. May and June are a bit warmer during the day but still delightful, and the truly warm weather starts in mid-July. Hurricane season is exactly the same as in the eastern United States, and officially runs June to November. However, most storms tend to occur August to mid-October.

Accommodations

The two luxury camps amenities include real beds with linens (and a housekeeping staff to clean the tents and make the beds each day). At the mountain camp, tents have en-suite composting toilets and there is a shared shower cabana. The island camp has two shared composting toilets and two solar showers. Meals are served in a shaded café (mountain camp) and in a large dining tent (island camp).

Cuisine

Freshly prepared meals are served each day, with vegetarian options available. Breakfast favorites include eggs with bacon, beans, hash browns, and corn and flour tortillas (homemade!). Lunches and dinners range from stuffed chicken breasts or pork ribs with tomatillo sauce to daily fresh-caught fish at the Baja camp. Dessert? Try pears or apples poached in red wine!
