Stories from the East Cape

Off the Beaten Track

You never know where an adventure will lead… Recently, a family visiting Costa Palmas wanted an off-road experience through the Baja Desert. Toy and Maria José, from the Aventura Team, guided our guests on an hour and a half trek through the “Arroyo de Santiago.” The “arroyo,” or dry river bed, connects La Ribera with the small picturesque […]

Journey To The Sea Of Cortez

“The abundance of life here gives one an exuberance, a feeling of fullness and richness”, wrote author John Steinbeck and his friend, marine biologist Ed Ricketts during their ailing trip down the Sea of Cortez in 1940. Initially, John Steinbeck and marine biologist Ed Ricketts were driven by the desire to document the creatures that […]

Canyon Hiking

Despite our beautiful beachfront location, Costa Palmas is just a short drive away from some fantastic hiking in the Sierra La Laguna Mountains.

This sublime mountain range was declared a biosphere […]

This breeze usually begins to fill in around 10 or 11am from the South East and gradually builds throughout the day usually peaking around 3pm and then quickly dying off around 6 or 7pm. At it’s peak, the breeze typically […]
