About the trip

Water and Wildlife in Mexico

Your week in Mexico will take you to some of the most beautiful ocean landscapes in North America as you kayak, hike, snorkel, and camp alongside stunning ocean wildlife.

You'll be greeted by your local guides in La Paz and, after a briefing, will take a boat to Espiritu Santo Island. This will be our home for the next four days, as we paddle beneath spectacular volcanic cliffs, snorkel with tropical fish, and swim with sea lions. Camp will be at a different and stunning location each night. Your guides will cook authentic Mexican food on the beach and we will finish each evening with a sunset yoga session.

After your time on the island, the boat will take you back to La Paz. On the way, we will stop to swim with the world's largest fish: the whale shark. Upon returning to La Paz,you will check into your luxury hotel. We will gather for a delicious farewell dinner where you can say goodbye to your guides. On your final morning, we can arrange massages to sooth your muscles after several active days. In the early afternoon, you'll head back to the airport feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
