WHERE THE DESERT
meets the sea
What does Baja mean?
Noun. baja f (plural bajas) casualty, loss.
What is it about this place that makes it so divine? Why do people of all walks of life flock here? So unique in its desert landscape populated by cacti, ocean breeze and mountains supporting the oasis of Todos Santos (All Saints). A beacon of light and life that calls on the elegance of whales who come to mate and give birth before their pods head north once again.
IbogaSoul is nestled between the ocean and mountains providing sacred space for guests to face their personal truths. Essentially we mirro the landscape that is the Baja which strips everything away and all you can look at is the raw truth of it all.
What are you ready to loose?
How can we look at current pain as an opportunity for growth?
Welcome to Baja. Welcome to Iboga. Welcome to YOU.

Birding at the La Poza Estuary
Laguna La Poza is comprised mostly of freshwater channeled from the Sierra de La Laguna mountains, mixed with saltwater from the open ocean, creating an incredibly fertile brackish-water lagoon. This special estuary is a key migratory stop for many of the 400+ bird species common in Baja, and bird watching here can bring visits from orioles, sandpipers, egrets, herons and countless others.
Whale watching in La Paz
Whales give birth in La Paz and spend several months each winter teaching their young to swim to prepare for their migratory path north. La Paz whale watching is some of the best in the world and local experts guide whale watching tours regularly.
Sea Turtle Releases
The leatherback sea turtle, and many other turtle species, nest their eggs in the sand beaches of the area. Local conservation groups protect these eggs, and then release the young turtles once hatched. Visitors can watch and even participate in the turtle release.
Deep sea fishing and spearfishing Tours
Fishing has always been central to life in Todos Santos. These semi-tropical waters are plentiful in Tuna, Yellowtail, Dorado, Marlin, Snapper, Grouper, and Mackeral, and many local guides can take you to the best fishing spots around.
Hiking the Sierra de La Laguna Biosphere and mountains
A UNESCO protected biosphere since 1994, the Sierra la Laguna Biosphere reserve is an oasis in the desert, boasting Baja California’s only coniferous, palm grove, scrub and pine-oak forest and the only rainforest on the Baja peninsula. The Sierra de La Laguna mountain range has many trails for avid hikers and campers, and many local guides plan and lead hiking trips among these peaks. Picacho de la Laguna is the range’s tallest at 7,090 ft, followed by Cerro Las Casitas at 6835 ft.
Waterfall and hot spring chasing
Baja California Sur is full of hot springs and waterfalls, including well-loved fan favorites and off-the-beaten-track hidden gems. From the Santa Rita hot springs’ nature-lover’s view to the beach-side bathing of the El Sargento springs, to the historic Zorro Canyon waterfall, there are endless eco-adventures waiting.
World class beaches
Balandra Beach has been a natural protected area since 2018, and Isle de Espiritu Santo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a National Park. These stunning natural beaches, and numerous others in the area, offer snorkeling, diving, water sports, fishing, swimming with sharks, kayaking and guided boat and yacht trips.
