We stayed for four nights here, and it was a fabulous place to rest and relax after going on daily excursions to see the grey whales. The yurts were clean and cozy (I liked the nautical themed decor), and the palm trees and animals (the...More

Just a note re the whale tours - I unfortunately didn't get out to Ignacio Lagoon - it was just too early. The grey whales migrate down the lagoons, from Scammons near Guerrero Negro, then Ignacio and then down to Bahia Magdalena.
It's odd because the tours out to Bahia Magdalena run from La Paz very early (because the whales are there), and tours also run from Scammons (both tours from the hotels and tours from the local nature reserve - which I cannot recommend highly enough and the locals often refer to this as Scammons even though the whole lagoon is Scammons) and pangas go out from Todos Santos to see grey whales that don't go into the lagoons (these are the whales that are not breeding) and humpbacks, but the Ignacio Laguna trips seem to start later, only when the baby whales are a bit bigger and you are more likely to have them come up to the boats.
There are quite a few places that offer cabanas on the shore of Ignacio Lagoon, but if you are adventurous you can also use the very basic cabanas at the reserve at Scammons (which are 10 US dollars including showers and eco toilets) but it's not a campsite and you may well end up sharing the area with people just excited to find a cheap place to park (there was a huge group of guys going on a rally further north one morning and I was really glad I'd decided it was too cold to camp there - but another night there was a lovely family with an RV and I envied them hanging out there all night watching the whales blow - yes you can see them from the shore!)
Hope that's enough info and not too much. All the whales are wonderful and I do hope one day to also see them at Ignacio as i really loved Ignacio Springs.
