Sun, escapism and sea lions in Baja California
Wild swim through the bay of Espiritu Santo, kayak the coastline of Los Cabos and unwind in an all-inclusive resort overlooking the Pacific on this Mexican escape
About your trip
Baja California: a peninsula of volcanic islands, rugged coastlines and long, white beaches. Perfect, then, for five days of escapism.
Baja has long been a hotspot for indulgent, all-inclusive escapes, but our coastal getaway comes with an adventurous twist. Yes, you’ll unwind on pristine beaches overlooking the Pacific Ocean, but you’ll also uncover the artistic sights of Todos Santos, snorkel alongside sea lions and eagle rays, and cook up a sunset seafood feast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. And all in just five days.

Day 01 Hola, Mexico
Touch down in San Jose del Cabo, where your adventure begins. Located on the southern edge of Baja California, this region is home to long, sandy beaches, rocky islets and deep turquoise waters. Check into your beachside hotel, where you’ll meet your fellow travellers and guide, before enjoying a welcome aperitif and your first meal together. With beautiful views of the bay expanding to the horizon, settle into five days of pure escapism.
Day 02 From El Cabo to La Paz
After breakfast at the hotel, the morning is yours to spend at leisure. Our top recommendation? Wander down to the beach club to enjoy a cocktail overlooking the sea. At midday, head out to explore San Jose del Cabo town, where colonial heritage blends seamlessly with a lazy, beachside charm. Meander down sun-kissed streets, lined with boutiques, handicraft stores and colourful galleries, before catching your transfer to La Paz – Baja California’s seafront capital. Settle into your new city with a short walking tour with your fellow travellers, before finding somewhere to dine for the evening.
Day 03 Boat ride around Espiritu Santo
Head down to the harbour this morning, where you’ll jump aboard your boat and sail over to the uninhabited island of Espiritu Santo. This rugged volcanic terrain is surrounded by deep turquoise waters; a region of spectacular biodiversity where seals, whales and dolphins are known to roam. Snorkel through these rich waters, visiting a sea lion colony at Los Islotes, before a picnic lunch on the beach. Back at the hotel, take a couple of hours to relax, before making your way to the malecon of La Paz to enjoy a seafood grill cooking class, with sundown drinks overlooking the vast ocean.
Day 04 La Paz to Los Cabos
After breakfast at the hotel, it’s time to leave La Paz behind you as you head onto Todos Santos. Whilst this coastal town is small in size, it boasts a rich artistic heritage and is lined with galleries showcasing the work of local artists. After a short stop to explore this charming town, you’ll continue to Los Cabos, where the Mar de Cortés meets the Pacific Ocean. Kayak and snorkel your way around the rugged coastline amid the abundant marine wildlife, keeping an eye out for tropical fish and spotted eagle rays. Back on dry land, move onto your all-inclusive beach resort to savour your final evening in luxurious style. Enjoy an indulgent closing feast with views of the ocean stretching out before you.
Day 05 Adiós, Baja
Wake up to breakfast at the hotel, then you’ll have a few hours to enjoy the hotel pool and services, before making your own way to the airport. Interested in Latin America? Take a peek at our long weekend in Belize for the ultimate sun-soaked escape.
