Our Quick Getaways to Espiritu Santo Island (ESI) during spring and fall allow us to settle into a beautiful base camp on a white sand beach adorned with turquoise waters and giant cactus. Without having to move camp daily we have plenty of time to explore volcanic cliffs by kayak, hike into canyons adorned with hanging fig trees and snorkel with friendly sea lions and tropical fish or try a hand at fishing each morning.

During the months of October, November, Mid-March through April our Quick Getaway trips to Espiritu Santo Island provide a comfortable base camp using crawl-in backpacking style tents.

Our flexible itinerary facilitates a variety of activities for a variety of interests from paddling and hiking to snorkeling and fishing. Motorized skiffs provide a safe and luxurious sea kayaking excursion. These skiffs allow us to participate in activities not possible if traveling by kayak alone. We can motor to snorkeling “hot spots” including a sea lion rookery where we snorkel among these graceful creatures enjoying their playful and curious nature first hand. Along the shores of ESI It’s common to see manta rays and dolphins leaping from the sea’s surface. During spring trips humpback whales frequent these waters and our skiffs enable us to move closer for remarkable encounters.

On our Espiritu Santo Quick Getaways you can explore distant islands and coastlines by kayak, hike among desert cactus, snorkel with sea lions and bring in fresh “catch of the day” prior to breakfast as well as relax on the beach and enjoy a good book.

Our Quick Getaway trips are economically budgeted without hotel accommodations. If you would like to stay in La Paz before or after your trip, at our own beautiful hotel, The Posada LunaSol, we would be happy to arrange these accommodations for you.


Day 1

Meet at the Mar Y Aventuras office in La Paz at 10 am. Transfer by boat to the beautiful Island of Espiritu Santo for a late lunch, kayak introduction and then sunset “happy hour” and dinner. B/L/D  

Day 2-3

Explore Espiritu Santo Island (kayaking, snorkeling, hiking and fishing). B/L/D 

Day 4

Depart camp after breakfast and transfer by boat to La Paz arriving around mid-morning in time for traveling to other destinations in Baja OR spending time in La Paz. Please keep in mind we need to schedule this itinerary as such when running back to back trips to the island camp. This is the only way we can provide such economically minded tours. If you are staying with us at our hotel it’s unlikely your room will be ready upon your arrival mid-morning so plan to spend some time enjoying our pool or exploring La Paz while waiting for you room.
