Set out for a wellness retreat in Baja California Sur, amidst palms trees, lush lagoons, towering cliffs, and pristine waters rich in marine wildlife. After a revitalizing session of morning yoga with Canyon Ranch expert yoga instructor, Adrea Richmond, and with 360-degree views, hop on a thrilling boat ride on the Sea of Cortez. Test your surfing and paddling skills, swim with whale sharks and sea lions, marvel at dolphins and manta rays, snorkel with tropical fish, and explore desert beaches. Back at Todos Santos, visit local shops and art galleries, then wrap up the adventure over a mouthwatering Mexican dinner. This trip is offered in collaboration with our friends at Canyon Ranch, the world's recognized leader in healthy living and luxury wellness vacations.
Welcome to Baja California Sur! Arrive at the airport in San Jose del Cabo, to meet your guide and transfer to Todos Santos, located 50 miles north of Cabo on the Pacific side of the Baja peninsula. This delightful desert oasis is thick with palms, lush with lagoons, and filled with sea birds. Get settled into your lovely room with ocean views and have a trip briefing and welcome dinner of gourmet tacos prepared by local lawyer-turned-chef Iker Algorri, served on the Los Colibris grounds.
Start the day early with yoga on the Los Colibris' Yoga Sky Deck with Canyon Ranch yoga instructor Adrea Richmond, and majestic views. Follow it up with a terrific breakfast, then take on the waves at Los Cerritos, one of the best surf breaks in Baja. With top surfing instructors, you're guaranteed to ride the waves - at least for a moment! Have a picnic lunch on the beach. In the evening, head into town for dinner at Landi's, where chef Landi Ortega whips up home-style Mexican dishes. Back at Los Calibris, enjoy a spot of stargazing.
After breakfast, head to La Paz, get snorkeling gear and wet suits, and on to the boats and out into the Sea of Cortez. Have a stop to swim with whale sharks in the Bay of La Paz, then transfer to another boat for the trip to Camp Cecil on Isla Espiritu Santo. Part of Marine Zone of Espiritu Santo Archipelago National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's one of the world's top spots to view marine life and a terrific range of bird species that frequent the island's shores.
Today explore the protected Isla Espiritu Santo, a stunning place with magnificent towering cliffs, spectacular sandy bays, amazing lava rock formations, and rock art left by the now-extinct Guaycura and Pericu indigenous groups. Do some yoga, head out for kayaking, snorkel with colorful tropical fish, swim with sea lions, try out stand-up paddle boarding, spend time birdwatching, or hike to hidden lagoons and desert beaches.
Feel re-energized by your last morning yoga session on the beach at Camp Cecil. Then, after a wonderful breakfast, take a return boat trip Todos Santos. The afternoon is free to explore this tiny town with its many shops and galleries, home to a diverse community of artists, chefs, fishermen, surfers, and yogis. Enjoy a farewell dinner at La Casita, featuring specialties especially prepared by Chef Sergio Rivera.
