You know that feeling when you meet someone and there is an instant connection and belief in who Bryan and Sergio Jauregui, the owners of Todos Santos Eco Adventures. As we shared a family dinner of fresh fish tacos and handmade margaritas at their home in Todos Santos, I just knew our lives would interweave as the years passed. And today, I'm thrilled to announce that Todos Santos Eco Adventures is now part of the Kusini Collection!
they are? That's how I felt when I first met

Why visit Baja with Todos Santos Eco Adventures?

We get it. Some think Baja and Cabo's cookie-cutter resorts and crowded beaches come to mind. Don't worry, that's not our thing either! Todos Santos is a world away from the high rise resorts just down the coast. Here are just a few reasons why in our

Top 5 Reasons to visit Baja with Todos Santos Eco Adventures! 

1. Wildlife: 
  • Five of the world's seven turtle species nest on Baja's beaches.
  • Rare and amazing birds like the blue-footed booby and the magnificent frigate bird have rookeries there.
  • 40% of the world's marine mammal species are found in the Sea of Cortez, including humpback whales, dolphins and sea lions, plus whale sharks and 891 species of fish! 
2. Active Adventures Abound: There is truly something for everyone - surfing, hiking, fishing, kayaking and more. With TOSEA's home bases in Todos Santos
and on the Sea of Cortez, your guests will never be bored.

3. Easy Access: Todos Santos is located a mere 1.5 hour drive from Cabo San Lucas, which is serviced by many direct flights from US and Canadian airports. This means less time flying and more time on vacation!

4. Family friendly:  A sunny, laid-back Baja vacation is the perfect escape for any family. Kick off a week of family fun learning how to ride the gentle waves complete with picnic lunch. Another day, paddle the calm bays in the Sea of Cortez and swim with sea lions. Baja is a destination to shut down the electronics and connect with each other - capping off days filled with activity with tacos and tall tales under a starry sky. No responsibilities, no planning, no worries.

5. Culinary Delights: The food is fantastic, particularly in Todos Santos, where chefs make great use of the bounty of two seas and the fruits of organic farming in between. For a small town, there is a diverse selection of fabulous eateries and you'll also note a boom in Baja wineries!

Bryan and Sergio are also the owners/operators of two exclusive accommodation options, adding to the high-touch experience guests will have with TOSEA during their visit - Los Colibris Casitas and Camp Cecil.
