We just returned from a trip of a lifetime. This experience was more than we expected it to be. All of your needs are attended to from the time they pick you up until they deliver you back to the hotel. The ability to see, touch, pet and if you wanted to kiss one of the gentle, graceful and giant... More

Baja Ecotours whale trip ranks at the top of my travel list. As a Biosphere,the camp is pristine, ecologically advanced and beautifully located. Our cabins faced the lagoon , birds were everywhere, nesting Osprey were close by and sunsets that will dazzle you. The most amazing , emotional and profound time was touching, rubbing and loving these beautiful gray whales.... More

What a professional group--from the management by Liisa and Marie Teresa to the boatmen and cooks/cleaners who took such great care of us. Yes, the accommodations were "basic," but the payoff was fabulous. The whales, the whales, the whales--the moms and their babies! Looking into the eye of a whale up close and personal is like seeing into the depths... More

Just returned from four nights at Campo Cortez and San Ignacio Lagoon. We were well taken care of and found the camp experience a fun time. The little cabins face the lagoon, a very eco friendly environment and it is a wonderful place to watch the birds, tide and life go by after the amazing show by the Momma whales... More

As a journalist, I've been lucky to witness many extraordinary sights around the world, and have to say that resting my hand on the warm back of a mother gray whale and her baby - in the WILD! - ranks as one of the most profound moments of my life. I kept thinking to myself that most humans wouldn't trust... More

Don't even think twice - do this - you will love it! Ecotours' site is called Campo Cortez and it is designated a biosphere which means the company has to work really hard to keep it pristine and environmentally to world standards, and they do that. It is located on a lagoon that was once - about 40 years ago... More

The best way to sum up this trip is with one word "Wow". We were lucky enough to get to pet whales on two of the three days that we went out. Even on the day when the whales were not being "friendly" enough for touching, they were still close to the boats and we saw so many spy hops... More

Absolutely wonderful trip. The staff was fantastic. Many thanks to M.T, Lisa and Stephan. The whale watching trips with Cuco, and Paco were incredible. Everyone in our group had the chance to touch the whales. I was lucky enough to kiss a calf! Campo Cortez is magical and we will return. Thanks again to all the staff.

We went with our two children ages 14 and 11 and our parents. Everyone from age 11 to 76 had a great time. We went to see the whales and they were incredible but they were only a portion of the entire experience from the birds, tidal pools, desert plants and the welcoming family run camp. The guides and captains... More

It was plain just great, would have liked to hear more about the eco-base of the camp a little earlier, that was so interesting! :-)
