In few days, I was able to see, touch the Gray Whales.Also, I have met a great Mexican family who runs the Whale Camp so professionnaly. They serve healthy homemade Mexican food. They even made me a soy empanadas knowing that I am vegetarian. I really do not agree with the previous reviews saying that the food was blend. I... More

I looked at pictures and descriptions of the intimate encounters with the whales, in Laguna San Ignacio. But, I figured it was probably somewhat hyped… that such encounters were probably rare. Boy, was I wrong! We had numerous such encounters on every one of our 5 outings into the lagoon. Pictures can only give you a sense of how overwhelming... More

Words and pictures simply Aren't enough to describe how incredible, magical and emotional the whale encounters are and the Laguna and camp are just beautiful. The open space changes according to the light and sunsets are spectacularly colourful (even without the evening Margharitas). Wonderful birds too. Grateful thanks to the whole team ! The entire staff at Campo Cortez were... More

We spent 2 days at Campo Cortez last week and had a great experience. Our friends were going and it was always something I thought would be cool to do, but it far, far exceeded my expectations! Campo Cortez is an ecocamp, so it is more like a catered camping experience than a luxury trip. But it is quite accurately... More

Campo Cortez is a retreat from all the noise and ruckus of our daily lives. No phone, no internet, no radio, no TV. The cabins are comfortable and cozy and the wind lulls you to sleep. The views of the water and the birds are gorgeous. We had wonderful and plentiful food, beer, wine and appetizers. The guides were informative... More

Accommodations were clean and nice and basic. Food was simple,... More

We loved the trip so much that we went back this last week and it was even better than before. The whales were very active all 6 trips out to the viewing area. We even got to kiss a baby whale. The facilities are primitive but comfortable. the people at the camp are fantastic. We had a super guide. We... More

This was an unforgettable trip, infinite more than what I was expecting. The service was top class, everybody super friendly, helpful, informative, happy, and considerate of our needs and expectations. And, of course the highlight were the whales. These beautiful, sensitive, intelligent, playful, trustful creatures, that in spite of their size are gentle and careful not to harm us. On... More
