Spend time with Mar Libre, a volunteer-based group, to clean the mangroves and reefs of Baja California.
In Todos Santos, take a tour of the town with the Zero Waste Alliance, a group working to remove plastics from the oceans by way of purified water stations.
What to expect:
The turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez and the neighboring Pacific Ocean are home to an abundance of sea life that is unmatched in this part of the world. We’ll explore all of this by kayak, paddle board, surfboard and snorkel, but also take time to meet with three organizations working to protect this landscape and its unique wildlife.
Where you'll stay:
Start your trip at the charming 4-star Hotel Catedral in the seaside town of La Paz. A contemporary boutique hotel in the historic city center, you’ll feel like you’ve taken a step back in time as the church bells ring across the street. Take in the sites and sounds of the city from the roof deck, swim in the rooftop pool or simply relax by the hotel’s iconic cocktail bar.
We’ll then venture out by boat to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Isla Espiritu Santo. A marine park that covers 48,000 hectares will be your backyard as we spend two nights camping under the stars. Keep in mind this is not the camping you may be imagining. Our dome tents include comfortable mattresses, a chef that dreams up our meals and mixes drinks and a view that is unrivaled*
The last two nights will be spent in the vibrant coastal oasis of Todos Santos. Your home will be Los Colibris Casitas, a boutique hotel sitting in the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Each of the casas and casitas has magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean, a freshwater estuary and a palm grove oasis to the front, and the Sierra de la Laguna mountains to the side and back.
There's always a possibility that poor (windy) weather conditions could inhibit the boat ride to Isla Espiritu which could prevent the camping experience on the island. If this is to occur, we will rearrange the week's activities to accommodate for weather.
