We have used this company three times to explore the Baja peninsula. They have great people who supply good gear, and are very knowledgeable about things to do and what you are seeing. We camped and kayaked on Espritu Santo, then went whale watching on Magdalena Bay and it was glorious. Well supported team of people. Good food, comfortable tents... More

Wow! What an amazing time we had! The guides, Miguel and Hugo, were so respectful of the earth, attentive to all our needs, knowledgeable of the history, terrain, wildlife, activities....we wanted for nothing! We snorkled with sea lions and whale sharks! Snorkled the reefs and rock formations that mimicked the amazing mountains that surrounded us. Our campsite was clean and... More

My wife and I spent 5 days/4 nights camping with Mar y Aventuras on Espiritu Santos over the new years (12/31 - 1/5/2016). WOW - fun times. The guides were tops (Miguel and Fernando-Drew), boat captains likewise and camp staff-cooks the same. All-in-all it could not have been more perfect. Miguel and Drew were the best.

We spent a lovely day with Benjamin, a wonderful guide who took five of us on a great adventure. He was very professional, well informed and educated about our environment, and created a fun experience for us all. The "captain" of our trip, whose name I did not hear, was also excellent. These two guys gave us a great day.

These guys took us out to swim with whale sharks and it was awesome. The guys provided beverages, snorkels, masks, and some snacks. They knew exactly how to get to the whale sharks and payed close attention to their well- being which I thought was important. Great place to book a day trip with.

I could start with all the amazing things to do in and around the beautiful, family oriented city of La Paz and the beaches beyond...however, I want to start at the Posada Luna Sol itself.
