The Baja peninsula is a thousand miles of sun, sand and surf that starts at the San Diego border and doesn’t stop until it hits the tip at Los Cabos where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. Baja California Sur, the lower half of the peninsula, is home to some of the best surf breaks anywhere. For advanced surfers there is Scorpion Bay, Isla Natividad, and San Pedrito, and for beginners there is Nine Palms, Conejo and Los Cerritos, the location of the Baja Surf Camp for Women.
In all locations there are empty beaches and quality waves, accompanied by cool cervezas and tasty tacos for apres surf. Come at the right season and you can see whales offshore as they head towards their breeding grounds in the lagoons of Baja. In addition to surfing there is plenty of other adventure to be had in Baja including hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, and bird watching.
Mexicans call Baja California Sur the Last Frontier and it really is – a great place to enjoy pristine, unspoiled, undeveloped beaches, mountains and surf.

No organizing, no driving, no commuting – nothing but sun, surf and a sublimely fantastic getaway that’s all about YOU having nothing but FUN!
Todos Santos is on the southern tip of the Baja peninsula on the Pacific side, and is renowned as an artists’ colony, surfing hotspot and agricultural center. One of 36 designated Pueblo Magicos “Magic Villages” in Mexico, Todos Santos is home to a wonderful array of artists, chefs, surfers, naturalists, poets, dreamers and doers – not to mention 70 miles of pristine, undeveloped coast line and a climate that is just about perfect from November to June each year. The instructors for our Baja Surf Camp all learned to surf at the same beach/surfbreak where we hold the surf camp – Los Cerritos. The magic of Los Cerritos is that there is always a safe area for beginners to learn, enhanced by a smooth and sandy ocean floor.
Our accommodations for the Baja Surf Camp for women are at Los Colibris Casitas (www.loscolibris.com), which boasts the most stunning views in Todos Santos. This haven for nature lovers is nestled in a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, a freshwater estuary and palm oasis. Absolutely spectacular, and still just a 5 minute drive to the restaurants, shops and artists galleries of Todos Santos.
For such a small town Todos Santos features an incredible array a truly fantastic restaurants and we’ll try a different one each night during the Baja Surf Camp for Women. We’ll also have a Mexican cooking class one night!
