Winter in Baja presents the perfect opportunity to combine spectacular paddling and snorkeling in wildlife abundant waters with hikes through towering cardon cactus to ancient pictographs on a remote eco-ranch set deep in a remote desert sierra.
On this adventure you’ll experience both the sea and mountains of wild Baja from two luxury camps. Three days of the trip include heading to the secluded Rancho Cacachilas, where goats, chickens and organic gardens provide a plethora of fresh, local ingredients for your meals. Activities on this private ranch include hiking through a boulder strewn mature desert filled with abundant bird life combined with amazing farm to table meals including hand-made artisan cheeses paired with fines wines and craft beers. Camp is comprised of large walk-in canvas tents placed in beautifully secluded locations, some with views of the beautiful blue Sea of Cortez. The night sky from this remote mountain desert is simply breathtaking.
After hiking and dining at the ranch for a couple of days, you’ll head back to La Paz for a lovely evening in this vibrant seaside town.
The other half of this adventure takes you to our luxury camp on a white sand beach in the spectacular national reserve of Espiritu Santo Island for 4 days. On the boat ride to the island we hope to visit the whale shark feeding area and snorkel with these gentle giants, weather permitting. Upon arrival at camp you’ll settle into your walk-in canvas tent only steps away from the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez. From this camp you’ll enjoy sea kayaking below volcanic cliffs and snorkeling with sea lions and tropical fish, interesting nature walks and/or trying your hand at fishing.
Join us this winter for the perfect escape combining land and sea activities with unique wildlife encounters in some of Baja’s most remote and beautiful wild places!

Although we do our best to adhere to the above itinerary, it is subject to change for reasons beyond our control including wildlife unpredictability, weather and port closures. Please keep in mind this trip can start either at the ranch OR on the island depending on weather. The itinerary is flexible but will still spend 2 nights at the ranch and 3 nights on the island. Upon the chance the port is closed due to high winds and we can not get your group to the island on departure day we will provide a land based activity for this day. Snorkeling with whale sharks is completely weather dependent (calm seas are necessary) so this activity will depend on the winds on the day and time we have scheduled to do this.
