What a cool island. The sea lions and birds in the area make it a must see trip. Also the rock formations in the area are wonderful.

We used Alonso tours which I highly recommend. It was a little windy that day which made the sea a bit rough, but the crew worked hard to give us the best possible experience.

This is a must see if you are in La Paz. 40 minute boat ride. You can even "Glamp" there with an outfitter. Great snorkeling, great water clarity.

Whether you take a tour from Tecolote beach, or you book an outing with a established company, the Espiritu Santo Island is a must visit. It has a nice sea lion colony, great snorkeling and beautiful landscapes. The beaches are unbelievable.

You can see pups in July, but be careful because the adults are aggresive in this period,they defend their pups, and you are not allowed to swimm. Some turists were bitten by sea lions in the water.
