Go whale watching, snorkel Baja’s blue lagoons, swim with sea lions in Magdalena Bay and prepare an authentic Mexican meal while “glamping” on the beach on this active getaway in sun-kissed Baja, Mexico at the Sea of Cortez!

Refresh and de-stress the AdventureWomen way, where a bit of pampering, mouth-watering meals, and outdoor adventures are enjoyed with other woman who are as enthusiastic about the adventure as you! Touch down in Mexico and head to Los Colibris Casitas in heavenly seaside Todos Santos. Set high on a hill, this beautiful property features airy rooms with breathtaking ocean views, while its terraced landscapes and quiet spaces reach all the way down to the shoreline. In the evening, celebrate the flavors of Baja with a spectacular welcome dinner that makes getting know the women in your group easy.

Your first full day includes an enriching two-part Mexican cooking lesson in which you’ll all work together to prepare local dishes for dinner. In the morning, meet with Chef Iker Algorri to learn the traditional method of making tortillas! After your cooking class, shake off the cornmeal and head to the beach for surfing lessons with the pros on Playa Los Cerritos, one of the best surf breaks in Baja. Later, meet up with Chef Iker on the beach. You’ll help him select fresh fish right from the boats because tonight everyone learns how to make Punta Lobos Fish Stew with the fish you picked and the tortillas you made. Add Chef Iker’s perfected margarita and you’ve got a meal fit for las reinas.

Sea lions and starlit nights await you on Isla Espiritu Santo, reserved exclusively for AdventureWomen to provide a private, luxurious camping (glamping) experience. Surrounded by the cerulean Sea of Cortez, you and your new friends can hike the cliffs, kayak the protected blue waters, and master the stand-up paddle board, then wind down at night counting the stars that swirl overhead. For some real undersea magic, go swimming and snorkeling with the island’s inquisitive and playful sea lions. You may even have a nose-to-nose encounter so bring your underwater camera!

Depart camp for Magdalena Bay on Baja’s Sea of Cortez and the warm calving waters preferred by gray whale mothers. Enjoy a day of Baja whale watching from boats that sit low in the water to provide an up-close look at these very gentle giants. You might just be able to observe a mother nurse her calf or get a splashy visit from a pod of very curious and carefree juveniles. From Magdalena Bay, return to Todos Santos for a final Baja sunset and an exquisite final group dinner where you and your new friends can reflect on this amazing trip.

From whale watching to surfing and from snorkeling with sea lions to glamping and Mexican cooking classes, this is tropical adventure in Mexico you’ll always hold close to your heart.
