“The best food I’ve eaten”

Food is a key element to any travel experience and in our case, the source of a good deal of positive feedback from our clients. We use only the freshest local ingredients when we prepare top quality meals for our guests. Whenever possible our staff and guests harvest seafood from the ocean by fishing and snorkeling. Fresh from the sea, Baja Airventures creates cuisine that would make any chef envious. Meals are well balanced and servings ample. We can also accommodate special vegetarian or vegan diets.

History of our Ecolodge

Located on the Sea of Cortez and accessible only by boat, Las Animas Baja Ecolodge, is a year-round all inclusive, soft eco-adventure, multi-activity, wilderness glamping vacation destination ideal for singles, couples, families, and small groups up to 16.

(What year it was built, parts shipped, transported, and brought all here to this remote location. Truly one of the most magical places, the reason we chose this location to purchase after decades of tours all across the Baja Peninsula.)

Escape to your own secluded, romantic cove. Watch the more than fifty species of birds and 6 species of whales, including the blue and fin whales, the largest in the world. Learn to sail and stand up paddle board. Climb with our guides. Explore unspoiled desert island chains. Beautiful easy walks in the very abundant and diverse Sonoran desert. Or simply relax in a hammock and fall asleep to the sounds of the sea. This truly is a one of a kind experience!


Here you can be as active or as relaxed as you want. Your Baja soft adventure vacation memories are entirely up to you. Kayak crystal clear waters and never-ending coves. Snorkel with playful Dolphins and Sea Lions. Watch in awe the majestic spouting whales.


If you have dreamed of a secluded, magical Baja ecolodge retreat… this is it.

We’ve brought thousands of guests to Baja California, one small group at a time, since 1989.

Our Location

Situated in between a Unesco World Heritage site, a National Marine Preserve, and the largest Desert Preserve in Latin America, we have a truly one-of-a-kind location.

Our ecolodges are a 14 mile boat-in only journey from the nearest town, Bahia de los Angeles (Bay of the Angels). Our views here are pure untouched nature – vastly different from the typical Cabo and La Paz “Baja Experience” with tourist resorts, crowds, and noise.

Kevin Warren, Owner Baja Airventures
Our Staff

Our staff consists of experienced Naturalist Guides and local Mexican staff of boat captains, fishermen, chefs, and the cleaning care of our ecolodges, and bring so much to the entire Baja Spirit experience.

Our team is committed to providing our guests with safe guided experiences, outstanding service, mouth-watering fresh food, and an added slice of authentic Mexican culture. 

Frequently Asked Questions
What is your worry-free booking & cancelation policy?

You may reschedule any new or existing reservation to any tour with us at no charge if there are any official health/travel government restrictions in place. You will be able to use the full value of your non-refundable payments as a credit for a future trip provided you travel within 24 months of your original tour date.

Your travel voucher credit is even transferable.

What are the qualifications of your guides?

Every whale shark tour is led by an official Baja Spirit naturalist guide. They are extremely knowledgeable of the local flora and fauna and have been taking out such tour groups for years. They are aware and abide by the Baja whale watching rules and regulations for the safe viewing which includes ways in which to leave them undisturbed.

Our guides love Baja and know the best places and natural resources to share with you.

What is your trip capacity?

Baja Spirit limits group size to no more then 12 guests on our Whale-Shark Ecotours. Other tours companies often crowd up to 50 or more on a single tour and as a result are unable to provide as personal or rewarding an experience. We value creating a personal, friendly environment where every guest is cared for.

How is the food?

The food is fantastic at our ecolodge, and we boast the best kitchens on the peninsula. Our local cooks offer all you can eat in traditional ranchero style meals, barbecue, fresh fish, home-made tortillas; purified drinking water are all included.

Many of our meals are "hunter gatherer" style, taking advantage of whatever mother nature provides with amazing fresh sea-food for happy hour.

And of course, we accomodate for different dietary restrictions - with vegan and vegetarian options available.

How are the accomodations?

Our specialty lodge at Las Animas’s features 8 romantic, private beachs-side yurts each with an attached private bathroom, a pressurized shower, state of the art Sun-Mar Ecotoilets, California king-sized pillow-top memory foam mattress, skylight roofs, and covered decks with Adirondack chairs and a hammock.

This is not a hotel - many of our guests consider our lodges a far better experience than staying at a typical hotel room and resort that you'd find in Cabo or California.
