Itinerary

Day 1: Todos Santos

A driver meets you at the San Jose del Cabo airport for the 1.5-hour drive to Todos Santos. After you’ve had a chance to settle into your lovely ocean-view room, you’ll meet local author-turned-chef Iker Algorri for a cooking class. Algorri is the author of Cooking Adventures in Baja California Sur.  

Days 2-7: Isla Espiritu Santo

Revel in seven luxurious days of island immersion. Your fully catered and outfitted moveable camp features large, walk-in tents with comfortable cots, chairs, and bedside tables with lamps. A composting toilet cabaña completes the conveniences. Every couple of days you’ll kayak to a new beach and campsite, where your chef is waiting with delectable meals. When you’re not kayaking, you can follow your whims and interests with snorkeling, hiking, swimming with sea lions, bird watching, walking the deserted beaches, exploring cave art, or relaxing. Your guides are interpretive naturalists, there to make sure your experiences are fun, informative, and unforgettable. In the evenings, sip margaritas if you like and gaze at the brilliant, glittering stars.  

Day 8: Todos Santos

The boat takes you back to Todos Santos and the afternoon is yours to hang out by the pool, explore the artsy town, or visit one of the town’s museums. Enjoy dinner tonight at a terrific local restaurant. 

Day 9: Playa Los Cerritos

Playa Los Cerritos features one of the best surf breaks in Baja. Take advantage of that with a surfing lesson complete with the guarantee that you’ll ride a wave, even if just for a moment! After the lesson enjoy a beach picnic and spend the rest of the day puttering around, practicing your surfing, checking out the tide pools, walking, horseback riding, or following your nose to the next adventure. Celebrate this time of Baja bliss with a final, fabulous dinner.  

Day 10: San Jose del Cabo

It’s adiós, at least for now, as you transfer to the San Jose del Cabo airport for flights home.

I think of her when I see the first buttercup of spring, reclaiming its territory […]
