We’ve added some extra Latin flare and fun activities to our classic sea kayaking trip on Espiritu Santo Island to create a “Latin Infused” kayak tour…..While enjoying the beauty of this island paradise with activities including kayaking, snorkeling, hiking and fishing you’ll also have the opportunity to learn some Mexican cooking secrets and fun Latin dance moves! Hands on cooking classes and dance lessons will be lead by guest instructors during the week.
The trip starts off with a hosted visit to a local salsa club/bar where you can dance or just observe while enjoying a cold beer upon your arrival Saturday night.
The following day we embark on our journey to the National Reserve of Espiritu Santo Island. Upon arrival at the island we’ll settle into our beautiful base camp set on a white sand beach complete with a fully shaded kitchen, dining area and “toys” to recreate in this spectacular setting. Guided excursions of sea kayaking, snorkeling, nature walks and fishing will be offered daily. In the evenings we’ll turn the fishing expedition catches into some delicious fare for happy hour and dinner. Evenings will include learning fun new ways to spice up classic Mexican dishes or gain ideas for creating new delicious cocktails and meals with Latin flare! As well we’ll encourage you to kick off your shoes and learn some salsa moves while listening to upbeat Latin music.
After 5 days on the island we return to the vibrant seaside town of La Paz for 2 more days of fun activities. After breakfast at our poolside cafe the next morning we take a short boat ride to the whale shark feeding grounds and with some luck and calm weather we’ll enjoy snorkeling with these gentle giants! This afternoon has us visiting a local market with our guest chef where we’ll select fresh fare to create a beautiful dinner hosted in a private kitchen with a lovely view of the marina and La Paz Bay.
Our last day of the trip has us exploring the nearby mountain desert landscape on a private eco-ranch. Here we will take a short hike to see some pictographs left by ancient Baja inhabitants. This will be followed by a ranch to table lunch at the ranch’s private wine and cheese tasting room with beautiful views of the Sea of Cortez. This evening we cap off the night with a hosted farewell dinner in town and more salsa dancing at a local club.
Join us on this fun Latin infused journey with a flare! Enjoy roasted pineapple and cilantro margaritas while watching the magical Baja sunsets from our beautiful beach camp after some fun in the sun of sea kayaking and snorkeling. This combined with learning some fun dance moves and listening to Latin music with whale shark snorkeling and visiting a local eco-ranch creates the trip of a lifetime!
B/L/D indicates meals included with trip cost.
*We are including a possible whale shark snorkel on these trips. When you snorkel with the whale sharks will be dictated by calm seas (possibly on the way to or from camp OR during the trip while on the island). Please keep in mind this activity is dictated by the forces of nature and not always predictable. The sharks need to be present and calm seas are necessary for snorkeling with them.
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. Upon the chance the port is closed due to high winds and we can not get a group to the island on departure day we will provide a land based activity for this day.
