Day 2: La Paz to Espiritu Santo Island Base Camp. A morning boat ride takes you to Espiritu Santo Island, designated a global conservation priority by The Nature Conservancy because of its unique biological diversity. Once we arrive at camp, you'll have an orientation to camp procedures, assignment of tents and a safety briefing. This afternoon we'll also establish the rotation schedule for cooking classes, held in our small cocina. Tonight you’ll enjoy a beautiful sunset over the Sea of Cortez as well as a welcome dinner.

Days 3 - 5: Espiritu Santo Island Base Camp. After instruction in sea kayaking basics - and a dunk test - you will begin paddling and exploring nearby turquoise lagoons and deserted beaches. From camp, you'll kayak along the shoreline with the opportunity to explore hidden coves, snorkel among dazzling fish, head to Los Islotes to swim and snorkel with the sea lions, visit a fresh water well for a rinse, and hike through gorgeous canyons up to high ridges for inspiring views. Pace and Antonio will lead two cooking classes per day with small groups preparing the meals, then presenting them to the group. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Day 6: Espiritu Santo Island Base Camp - La Paz. The morning finds you kayaking, swimming, hiking or snorkeling to savor the last moments of this incredible getaway before we return to La Paz. Once there, you will check into a sea side hotel and enjoy the rest of the day in town. You will take home your very own recipe book and priceless memories of the most beautiful places in Baja.
