On this very special family vacation in Mexico's Baja Peninsula, your family will have an opportunity to learn how to surffrom Mario, our energetic guide who has developed his own top-notch system of teaching the tough but rewarding water sport. He guarantees that you'll get up on the board, and after four extensive lessons, you may have found yourself a new lifelong hobby!
On every day of the trip except one, you'll have a morning or afternoon surf lesson, learning something new each time. During the first lesson, Mario and his team of instructors will host a practice session on the beach for you and your family, helping you master all the moves before you head into the water to give it a shot. Each lesson after that will lead you back into the water to review what's been taught so far and to build on your recently acquired skills, and the instructors will focus on helping everyone in the family catch their first waves all by themselves. You may even have to move to shorter, narrower boards for a more advanced ride.
For those who already have some experience with surfing, the waves at Los Cerritos break in sections, so you can always paddle farther out to ride some larger waves!
In addition to surfing, we'll also have chances to ride on horsebackon a vast stretch of pristine beach, visit and volunteerwith the children of the non-profit Palapa Society, and swim with sea lions at Los Islotesin the famed Sea of Cortez.
Our Baja surf trip, Surfari Baja Surf Camp, is an active family's dream come true, with abundant activity to keep everyone entertained in a unique and beautiful natural setting. Kids and adults alike will have a blast learning to surf in sun-soaked Baja!

Welcome to Mexico’s Baja! Bordered by both the wild Pacific Ocean and the protected Sea of Cortez, this finger-like desert peninsula is a haven for exotic plants, birds and animals (both terrestrial and marine) and home to friendly and welcoming people. Whether vacationing with teens or with youngsters—the Baja offers unexpected delights and adventures for all ages. After your arrival into Cabo, transfer to Todos Santos, check into your accommodations at Los Colibris, and prepare for a spectacular family adventure!
- Welcome dinner at Hotel California
An undiscovered gem, Todos Santos is back-dropped by the Sierra de Laguna Mountains and rimmed with gorgeous beaches and lush gardens. It’s an official Pueblo Mágico—one of Mexico’s 50 off-the-beaten-path towns known for their “magical” ambiance. During your time here, you and the kids will have the chance to make local friends and fully explore this fascinating, less-traveled area—on foot, by horseback, and in the water. Of course, you'll also be learning to surf using our guide Mario's tried and true method!
