Camp Cecil is a luxurious camp found at the Espíritu Santo island in Baja California Sur

The doors to paradise are only open between November and April. After this time, any mortal who attempts to break in must be “expelled” and thrown back to his or her reality the way they came: On board a catamaran.

Camp Cecil is a luxurious camp that is inaugurated every six months in one of the two main islands of the National Park of the Espíritu Santo (Holy Spirit) Archipelago.

This natural sanctuary, protected by UNESCO, can be found within the state of Baja California Sur. In order to sleep among its turquoise waters, surrounded by volcanic cliffs, one must set sail from the city of La Paz or the Magical Village of Todos Santos.

A small and exclusive team of experts will ship you and accompany you during your stay at the camp. A few minutes before arriving at the island, the boat makes a quick stop at open sea so that visitors may appreciate one of the most famous inhabitants of the Espíritu Santo island: The whale shark.

It’s up to you to decide whether you want to go snorkeling to see the creature or ride a surfboard to follow them as they swim in tranquility.

As you come closer to shore, you will see a crescent-shaped line of sand leading to the small oasis where you will have to opportunity to sleep for a couple of nights. The uncharted beach is called Playa Gallo.

Eight tents are spread throughout the shoreline, equipped with king-size beds, wooden candlesticks, and electricity. During your stay, you will be able to go kayaking, dance with sea-lions and enjoy the meals that a private chef will cook for you with freshly caught seafood.

To access Camp Cecil, visitors are required to make reservations for a minimum of two nights. The experience includes transfers, food, and other activities. The regular fee is USD$350 a night; if you are planning to stay from November 1 to January 1, the fee rises to USD$375. You may book your stay here
