Isla Espiritu Santo was once known as Isla Perlas and remains the crown jewel of the Sea of Cortez. Only an hour and a half boat ride delivers you to the Espiritu Santo Island eco-hotel and its comfortable amenities in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the perfect platform for you to experience the essence of Baja at ease as you kayak, swim, snorkel, stand up paddle, and hike at your own pace. The schedule can be as active or as relaxed as you choose. Novices will learn easy-to-master kayaking skills from our expert guides, and soon be paddling along the western shoreline—exploring caves, rock gardens, and deserted beaches. You’ll hike up ochre-colored arroyos to catch a glimpse of a cactus wren or a rock-collared lizard, and marvel at the amazingly adapted plants. Birders will delight in the antics of pelicans and frigate birds. Be sure to watch for mobula rays and dolphins leaping out of the water as your skiff speeds you to the best snorkeling spots, where you can swim with friendly sea lions and hundreds of tropical fish!
