Currently Espiritu Santo Island can be visited with a permitted capacity of 40% of its capacity. We ask you to stay informed regarding the protocols and guidelines issued by CONANP, SEMARNAT and PROFEPA.
How to get there?
The boats, from small pangas to world-class yachts, depart from the marinas of La Paz or from the pier at the Malecon.
If you come from Los Cabos or Todos Santos there are tour operators that offer transportation or you can also rent a car and drive on your own to La Paz, where you can hire the services of a tourist provider.
When you go to the island, make sure you hire an authorized operator. For this reason, we ask you to demand your bracelet to enter the Natural Protected Area.
