What a great place. The fishing was excellent. The food is over the top! The staff is super friendly and always trying to make you stay better. The accommodations are very clean and comfortable. We cannot wait to go back! Thanks Tim and your staff. Tom and Chris from the San Francisco Bay Area.

What a great venue for a relaxing week of fun and great ocean sports. Definitely popular for spearfishing and great fishing in the Baja Sur. We had a great 7 days of fun, with great accommodations, good fishing with large sport fish including Wahoo, Rooster Fish, Dorado and many others. The best thing was the food, amazing food for breakfast,... More

Excellent value. I am a free dive spear fisherman and it is one of my favorite places to spear. The people work very hard to make sure every aspect of your trip meets your expectations. Not the Ritz Carlton but that is not what they want to be. Clean comfortable rooms, great restaurant and bar, knowledgeable guides and well appointed... More

My fiance surprised me by suggesting Palapas for part of our honeymoon in Baja. Being an avid adventurer who lives and breathes all manner of ocean sports - especially freediving and spearfishing I couldn't have been happier! From the moment we started planning, Jannine and Tim(owner) were extremely helpful in answering any questions and helping us with logistics such as... More

I just got back from my second trip to Palapas Ventana. My son and I went to participate in Red Sea Ocean Adventures' 8th Annual Mexican Shoot Out. Tim and all the staff there are fantastic. The boat captains know their stuff. Wi-Fi and air conditioning make life easy, and the food is always good!

Me and a few dive buddies just got back from a 9 day trip to Palapas Ventana and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. The service was exceptional. Tim and his crew were constantly surpassing our expectations. Stan and Ismael, the two guides we went with during our stay, were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The boat captains always...

I've been spearfishing at various international locations, and this was by far the easiest and most convenient trip I have made. It starts from the first moment you make contact. The staff at PV is highly efficient and respond quickly to both emails and phone calls. They will help with all forms of logistics especially with transport (shuttles, etc). Any... More

I spent a week in one of the casitas. The showers and toilets were directly across from me which made it very convenient. The views from the facility are to die for, and the staff was very friendly and personable. I was able to use a snorkel and fins the entire week. I also had access to a paddle board.... More

Like the title states, always a great time at Palapas Ventana. From Spearfishing season, kite season, and beyond the little town of La Ventana, the crew at Palapas Ventana have it covered. I've been here through out all the different seasons, and I always have a blast. This past president's day weekend, we enjoyed the Grey Whales and the whale... More
