An Unforgettable Day: Swimming, Hiking, & Lunch Amidst Natural Beauty
The leader in Los Cabos tourism for over 15 years, brings you the exciting Espiritu Santo Island Expedition. This day-trip is packed with treats for nature-lovers, old and young. We will pick you up at your hotel in our chauffeur-driven, air-conditioned van. From the modern port of Cabo San Lucas, you’ll drive north up the coast to the low-key city of La Paz. Your guide will fascinate you with the historical background of Baja and Espiritu Santo Island. Group size is kept small to make this tour personal and your day comfortable. You will stop along the way for a typical Mexican breakfast before continuing. Once in La Paz, your guide will take the group on a short boat ride across the bay to Espiritu Santo Island, where your eco-adventure begins.
On a nature hike, your guide will relate the inspiring story of how the island became a protected reserve. It was actually privately owned until a coalition of leaders persuaded the government to purchase it in 2003. It was the first such conservation purchase for the Mexican government. Take in some of the sights: 2,000-foot-high mountains, sheer rock dropping off into the water, and white sandy beaches dotting the coast. See why Espiritu Santo is one of Baja´s and La Paz´s most amazing attractions. You’ll never forget its riches and untouched beauty.
Enjoy a traditional Mexican lunch out on the beach as you relax, snorkel or just take in the scenery. Optional scuba diving is also available for an extra cost (to cover the extra guide and transporting the gear). We will drop you back at your hotel at the end of the day.
