Nature is incredible! A visit to Isla Espíritu Santo is just amazing. The nature, rock formations, sea life and beaches is something you need to see. The two hour boat ride is worth it! If you have the chance do not miss this

An Unesco world heritage site, Espiritu Santo is breath-taking. Different kinds of sea birds are seen all of the island. It has some great spearfishing in designated areas, kayaking, sailing, scuba diving, camping, hiking, beaches, flying rays and a sea lion colony.

Our tour company for Sea Lions was The Cortez Club. Check out La Paz VIP Tours though. They were great for our whale shark tour.
