The newly constructed Baja Magic Lodge features 7 ocean front rooms, 18 beds, multilevel decks, million dollar views, friendly staff, and a remote location on Cedros Island, Baja California, Mexico (about 60 miles off the coast of Guerrero Negro, in the Pacific Ocean). Baja Magic Lodge is available for fishing clients, eco-tours, for yachts, fly-in guests, and for retreats and events. Comfy beds, free wi-fi, warm sun and cool breezes. We offer low, off-season, ala carte rates Oct-May, and discounts for weekly or monthly stays. You might just have the place to yourself! We also offer all-inclusive fishing packages and can arrange transportation to the island for you. More details: Baja Magic Lodge is a private lodge located on a cliff overlooking the ocean, just beyond the high school that sits on the south edge of Cedros Town. (GPS 28 05′ 27″ N – 115 11′ 13″ W) Rent one room or all seven (contact us about reduced rates for groups). We offer all-inclusive packages for panga fishing and ecotour trips, or you can rent rooms ala carte from Oct-May. All rooms at Baja Magic Lodge have glass front walls with sliding doors and decks, and panoramic ocean views. We are the only outfit on Cedros Island that features views from every room. Each room has a private bathroom with shower, hot water, toilet, and sink, and 2-3 comfortable beds (queens or extra long doubles), desks and storage for clothes. The kitchen will be available for your use in the off season, or for an additional fee you can have breakfast or all your meals included. In the high season, all meals are included. The beds are extra long doubles or queen sized, with high quality mattresses and linens on solid wood platforms. We have four rooms upstairs and four on the first level (three normally available). If you have a problem climbing stairs please let us know and we will put you in a downstairs room. Free WiFi in all rooms. Cedros Outdoor Adventures Fishing and Eco-tour Packages: We will fly you in and have you fishing or doing outdoor activities the same day. Individuals and groups can be accommodated. Private flights are the ultimate in convenience. Get there fast. No border wait going home. If you have your own plane or boat, or want to drive yourself to the closest point on the mainland (Punta Eugenia, about 13 hours south of the US border), we offer per day or package rates. In the waters of Cedros Island, yellowtail, giant black sea bass, white sea bass, grouper, calico bass and other species swim in abundance. Fish Cedros in our 27-28 ft super-pangas with experienced local skippers. We have taken more than a thousand people to Cedros and other locations in Baja. Our trips will satisfy those looking for a genuine Baja fishing experience without crowds or long offshore boat rides, while still enjoying many of the comforts of home. The nearby Cedros Town, with only about 4000 people, is the real Baja California Mexico, friendly people in a family-oriented community. For those interested in eco tour activities, the following can be arranged on request. 1. Birdwatching: seabirds and land birds. Cedros and the two islands nearby (Natividad and the Benitos islands) are one of the most important seabird grounds in the Baja California Pacific. If you are a birdwatcher you will have the chance to experience and maybe see the rare and endemic seabirds that live around these islands. 2. Reptile search. Unique and endemic reptiles abound in Cedros. For instance, an endemic horned lizard, an endemic rattlesnake, several lizards and other snakes species. 3. Archeology trips. Our archeologist friend Matt Deslauriers author and educator has done research on the human history of the island. His findings give us a great idea of how and why Cedros is the longest continuously occupied island of the Pacific Northeast, more than 12,000 years. By prearrangement we can take you to visit some of the remains of the early inhabitants of the island and learn about their lifestyles, and how it has influenced the history of the occupants of Cedros. 4. Hiking from East to West coast of the island. This is one of our favorite hikes because of the canyons and habitats we will be going through. This can take up to 8 hours to complete, so its best to be in good shape. There is so much to see that overnight camping is possible. 5. Hiking to the forest of the island. We will climb to the forest of Punta Norte where spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean over sharp cliffs are possible. The trail is following a deep rocky arroyo to an old gold mine (early 1900's). This is about 6 hours uphill hike over rocky terrain. 6. Visiting fisherman camps / Punta Norte, San Agustin to see their living and eat there local seafood delicacies / abalone and lobster during season. This is how the real Baja was 50 years ago. Fishermen coming back from a hard work day to their temporary camps. Although their operation uses now modern gear, the personalities of friendly, giving and fun loving people still there. In the process we will be able to enjoy some of their catch cooked by them local style. 7. Learning to prepare local style food, like tortillas, ceviche, carne asada, dipping cream, etc. We will hire a local person who will help you to learn how to prepare some of the local dishes. We will use the same ingredients preferred locally (lard included) to get the real taste of Baja. 8. Kayaking. Either for fishing or just exploring, kayaks are a great way to reach many places of the island. To save you time and effort we can carry our kayaks on our panga boats to reach a nice place where you can explore on your terms. Kelp paddies and kelp forests as well as marine mammals can be approached easier with kayaks. 9. Snorkeling. Any kelp forest and any shore of the island is worth exploring. Out waters are so little impact from greedy fishermen that you will see practically every species that should be there. The fishermen of the island are respectful of protected species and of their main commercial species (abalone and lobster). 10. Benitos islands hike. Weather permitted, visiting these islands is a feast for your wildlife cravings. Elephant seal colonies with thousands of members, as well as sea lions and the special colony of Guadalupe fur seal as well as the millions of seabirds nesting makes Benitos a real treat for your senses. 11. Pangas tours around the island. Want to see every corner of Cedros? Our pangas are the best and most convenient way to do it. 12. Beach walking. From pebbles and boulders to sand, there are many beaches to explore and find treasures. 13. Fossil hunting. Not to keep or collect, but still a thrill to find remains of animals who lived millions of years ago, and that probably are the ancestors of the rich variety of life we see in our oceans. 14.Plant tours. One of the most popular reasons our groups have visited the island. We will hike or drive to the different habitats where to find native and rare endemic plants, as well as ancient forests and how human presence has affected their populations and distribution. 15. Visiting the springs on the island. Although Cedros receive very little rain, only a few inches average per year, the island has been able to support human presence thanks to the many small springs with fresh and brackish water. We will hike or drive to two or three of the most important springs, one of these, supply the water for the main town and we will see how it operates. 16. Photography trips. Photos are encouraged for any of these trips, either on land or underwater, with tips and help of the guide who is a pro. 17. Marine mammals / sea lions, elephant seals, whales. Specific trips to visit rookeries and whale watching are possible. These can be combined with any other activity on the water or just as an specific activity in search of the more than 5 species of pinnipeds, or transiting whales. Baja Magic Lodge is located on the Southern edge of Cedros town at these coordinates: 28 05' 27" N / 115 11' 13" W.

With the twin engine plane they now own, I was able to pull in my line at Cedros at 10 AM, and be on the road with my fish in a cooler in my vehicle by early afternoon. Flight from Cedros to a small plane area of the airport in TJ, pay $5, and 15 minutes later fly over the

This trip was my second time. After the first one, I was spoiled and knew what to expect. I was not disappointed. The staff make sure that you only do fishing and enjoy yourself. Besides the usual cooking great meals, cleaning and storing your catch, and taking you on pangas to

My 2 teenaged sons and I took a private plane from Brown Field Airport out of San Diego to Cedros Island. A short 3 hour flight and you are picked up at the Cedros airport and never lift a finger again. The friendly crew at the island do EVERYTHING for you. Cook, haul your gear,

We went on a Monday-Friday trip but we were not allowed to fish for two days due to inclement weather. Although the fishing was off those two days, the staff did their best to show us a great time. We went on an island tour and got to see parts of the island we never would have
