If you come to La Paz and don’t visit Espiritu Santo, you’ve done your vacation wrong! I can say without hesitation that this is one of the must-do excursions in Baja California Sur.
Plus, you get bang for your buck anytime you take this “island” tour, as Espiritu Santo is actually an archipelago, comprised of not one but two main islands – La Partida and Espiritu Santo – along with three islets and four rocky promontories. So much amazingness to explore, you can imagine why I keep going back!
Whether you’re dreaming of experiencing Espiritu Santo on a thrilling panga boat tour (the small fiberglass fishing boats that are used for most water excursions around La Paz), or on a private luxury yacht catering to your group’s every whim, the Trip&homes Experiences team has got you covered!

Even though it only runs about 20 miles from north to south, and six at its widest east-west point, there are too many notable features within this UNESCO designated biosphere reserve for me to fawn over all of them, but allow me to at least highlight the top 5:
Los Islotes – the northernmost islet, home to a healthy California sea lion colony of over 500 individuals. Though snorkeling and scuba diving with the playful juveniles is the main attraction at Los Islotes, don’t forget to look past those adorable brown eyes and whiskers! The reef surrounding the rocky islet is INCREDIBLE and teeming with colorful fish and healthy corals, and could be a destination all on its own.
If you didn’t know, the French explorer and researcher, Jacques Cousteau, wondrously proclaimed the Sea of Cortez “The Aquarium of the World”! And just imagine, this protected biosphere of marine magic is waiting for you a mere 25 minutes by boat from your cozy Trip&homes accommodation in La Paz.

Make it a day trip on its own or combine Espiritu Santo with a visit to the world’s largest fish – the whale shark!
