Best of Baja

Great remote location, like being on a desert island. Food was excellent, yurts were very comfortable, and the scenery was incredible. We kayaked, snorkeled with sea lions, hiked the beautiful surrounding area and generally had a good time.

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 (SUP) 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!

Nature at its best! Best trip ever!

My daughter and I had a great trip last month with Baja Airventures. We saw almost too many whales to count in the first two days of the trip. And Las Animas was remote and beautiful. Swimming with the sea lions was an amazing experience!! Guide/ Pilots Fred and Andy kept us on the move…except for siesta time and happy hour. Lots of good food and conversation. Best trip ever! Can’t wait to travel with Baja Airventures again to see and swim with the whale sharks!

… one of my favorite travel destinations.

The Sea of Cortez is one of my favorite travel destinations. Las Animas ecolodge offers an ideal way to experience its incomparable combination of desert terrain and abundant marine life. The perfect mix of being pampered and roughing it a bit was just right, too.

I cannot recommend this trip highly enough.

The variety of life you get to experience is unsurpassed, the privacy, the food, and the people will make this a gift you must give to yourself before it is too late. I have the deep joy of knowing that I have lived my life to the fullest and Baja Airventures has played a big part in that. Thank you Baja Airventures, from the bottom of my full heart. - Amy C., San Diego, CA
