Camp Cecil offers magical glamping on Espiritu Santo Island in Baja California.
The Island of Santo Espiritu off the coast of Baja California is a protected wilderness, virtually uninhabited, glorying in its natural state. But on one of its beautiful white-sand beaches permission was granted for a luxury camp, Camp Cecil, which has minimal impact on the pristine environment while offering comfort and tranquillity to its guests.
The romantic camp’s spacious walk-in tents feature proper beds smothered in crisp linens; bedside tables and rugs and chairs compose a homely feel, while indispensable amenities such as beach towels are provided.. Meals are taken in the on-site café, where the resident chef prepares meals with fresh ingredients, and facilitates an agreeable Happy Hour which has you sipping home-made cocktails as the tangerine sun sets over the ocean.Thus encourages to commune with nature, you can wake up next morning to a yoga class as the dawn breaks over a turquoise sea.
What our clients say
There were many highlights: the beautiful beach on our first morning in Cancun, the boat ride among the flamingos at Celestun, the sight of the Magicians Pyramid at Uxmal and the climb up the Great Pyramid there ( although not the descent, which was very vertiginous!). We loved the city of Merida, and having a Sunday at leisure there was very well planned by Sophie. We walked the Paseo de Montejo, open only to bikes and pedestrians, visited the Museum of Anthropology, then had a late lunch in Santa Lucia park watching the locals dancing. Later we watched them again in the evening dancing opposite the Cathedral in Plaza Mayor. Great fun, we loved it all. We also has a fantastic visit to Ek Balam on our way to Tulum, which was one on our Mayan Archeological highlights.AF, Merriott

Most memorable experiences: "Visiting our parents' house in Lomas de Chapultepec. Francisco persuaded the owners that we were genuine, which was quite an achievement. In sightseeing terms it is difficult to compare, for instance, the domestic and artistic life of Frieda Kahlo with the pyramids of Teotihuacan! We chose to go to all the places on our itinerary and all of them were memorable. Perhaps Monte Alban was the most mind blowing because I had no particular expectations of it, unlike Chichen Itza of which I had seen many pictures."HG, Sherborne
We had a lovely day at the waterfalls and coffee plantation when in Huatulco. We also did a tour of the bays which included snorkelling which was very enjoyable. We enjoyed the variety of culture mixed with the beach. All places visited made their mark. Mexico City very busy but worth seeing, Puebla lovely city with traditional crafts and culture. Oaxaca - town great place with lots of activity and music and Huatulco - enjoyed the local town La Crucecita for eating out.PT, Arundel
