Camping on Espiritu Santo Island

This is a great place for those looking for an outdoor adventure, as it is likely to remain undeveloped having been sold to the Mexican government in 2003.

The island has two distinctive sides, the southwest being a rugged series of narrow bays and the smoother north-eastern side. The unique camping experience features spacious tents, showers, beds and sheets. Dine on Mediterranean and Mexican cuisine before relaxing in the living room tent or having a drink at the bar.

The island is also a popular place for snorkelling and diving due to its many reefs and underwater rock formations. The ruins of a pearl-fishing operation feature at Bahia San Gabriel at the southwest tip of the island.
