The Whale Cabanas
San Ignacio Lagoon, Baja, Mexico
Our accommodations on Baja's San Ignacio Lagoon greatly enhance the atmosphere and excitement of our whale-watching adventure. Our eco-camp features 10 small and simple raised cabanas with thatched roofs set directly on the lagoon, providing a secluded experience where guests are enveloped by the desert wilderness. Each has two beds, shelving and hooks for clothes, and a window overlooking the lagoon. The cabanas are clean and comfortable but not at all fancy—we consider them a step or two above camping. The bathroom and shower facilities are shared and constructed with the environment in mind, using solar-heated water and a system of buckets that provide a water-thrifty yet effective bathing experience. Meals and presentations take place in the large round lounge/dining cabana.
