Los Colibris Casitas

We love this property so much that it is not only where we built our hotel, but our home as well. We chose this location on the side of the hill because of its incredible natural beauty. As with our home, every casa and casita of Los Colibris has truly magnificent views of the Pacific ocean and the palm grove oasis. We often not only see whales from our beds and terraces, but we can hear the great whooooshes as they spout air upon surfacing, and the incredible splashes as the males indulge in whale-tail smackdowns to impress passing females. We are often delighted to see manta rays leaping across the ocean’s surface, and we can hear the flap, flap, flap of their bodies connecting with the ocean just to get ready to soar again.

The grounds of Los Colibris are filled with both native plants and those imported by missionaries and other early Baja travelers, and this abundance of plant life attracts many kinds of birds, including the colibris or hummingbirds for which the property is named, as well as species endemic to Baja California Sur such as the Gray Thrasher, Belding’s Yellowthroat and Xantus’s Hummingbird. Over 150 bird species have been recorded in the area around Los Colibris. We have pubished two books celebrating the plants and birds on the prpoerty, Birding in Baja California Sur and Baja Blooms: The Gardens of Los Colibris Casitas, both featuring the amazing photographs of Kaia Thomson.

Todos Santos is an artists colony, and Los Colibris reflects the vibrant creativity of the town, with works by local and visiting artists throughout the rooms and grounds, including the Fish Bench and Sierra Mandala sculptures by Wes Horn, Studies in Red and Blue by Steve Thurston, Paseo del Mar and La Montana Brilliante by Jill Logan, Iker's Colibris Cafe mosaic sign by Donna Billick, Los Colibris Mosaic by Tami Zweig and the Santa Barbara School of Mosaic Art, Mangrove Montage by Tori Sepulveda and her art class, Gourd Sconces by Scott and Maria Cole, Heaven on Earth print by Jos Sanchez, Untitled Study by Erick Ochoa, La Casita by Nanette Hayles and so much more. And it is so easy to find these artists and so many others just a few minutes drive from Los Colibris Casitas.

We started building Los Colibris in 2004, added the pool and hot tub in 2010 and in 2014 built Iker’s Colibris Café to offer breakfasts and cooking classes for our guests with Chef Iker Algorri. In 2017 we completed Babisuri House, a beautiful rammed earth construction with 3 large, wheel-chair accessible suites. We also own and operate Todos Santos Eco Adventures so we will happily arrange activities for you including hiking, kayaking, surfing, bird watching, horseback riding, rock climbing, fishing, whale watching, snorkeling with sea lions, swimming with whale sharks, sea turtle camp, visits to mountain potters – and more! We also own and operate Camp Cecil, our luxury tent camp on Isla Espiritu Santo, which is a great choice for people who like to be thoroughly spoiled in thoroughly unspoiled nature. Espiritu Santo is actually where we met, fell in love, and started spinning the dream that is now Los Colibris Casitas, Todos Santos Eco Adventures and Camp Cecil. We hope you’ll come do a little Baja California dreaming with us.

Surfing at Los Cerritos
Todos Santos boasts some of the best surf breaks in all of Baja and our veteran surf instructors guarantee that you’ll stand up and ride a wave – at least for a moment – before the end of your lesson! With a smooth, sandy bottom and clear, clean water, the bay at Los Cerritos is the perfect place to learn to surf or to perfect your skills. Beginners can learn on the very small waves close to shore, while more advanced surfers can catch the waves further out. There really is something for everyone!

Pacific Bluffs Cliff Walk
This is the first adventure that we ever developed in Todos Santos way back in 2002, and it remains as spectacular as ever. Glorious scenery, fascinating local history and encounters with strange and wonderful flora and fauna. This Pacific bluffs cliff walk starts at Punta Lobos, the sweeping Pacific beach where the local fishermen of Todos Santos launch their boats each morning and bring in the daily catch each afternoon. A quick walk up the hill brings us to breath-taking views of a different kind of coastline, with dramatic rocky outcroppings and crashing surf. We´re likely to spot whales from this high vantage point during several months of the year.

Throughout the walk we´ll have the stunning combination of desert landscape running to the sea. We´ll pass an active sea lion colony, as well as the ruins of the shipping port Los Algodones. Your guide will offer in-depth commentary on the terrific variety of flora and fauna you see, as well as the history of the area from the human perspective. After about 3.5 hours of walking we´ll arrive at the idyllic beach of San Pedro where a picnic lunch will be waiting. San Pedro features a beautiful marsh filled with bird life and a protective cove ringed by towering palms. Here we´ll eat, relax, sunbathe, swim, read - just enjoy the bliss of being in Baja!

This walk includes a 600-foot elevation gain at the beginning, hiking over loose, uneven terrain, and some bouldering.

Horseback Riding
Baja California Sur has a strong ranchero culture, and horseback riding in and around Todos Santos is a great way to experience some of that culture, as well as the area´s beautiful ecosystems and wildlife habitats. Our guides are not only experienced riders, but also avid birders and naturalists who enjoy sharing their local knowledge. Morning and afternoon rides available for riders of all skill levels.

Todos Santos Historical Town Tour
Todos Santos has a rich and varied history, from the early missionaries, through the booming sugar years, through its current incarnation as an artists’ colony, agricultural center and surfing hotspot. On this guided tour we will visit many of the historic homes and buildings throughout town, learning fascinating stories of the global forces and colorful personalities that brought these buildings into existence and shaped Todos Santos over the years.

We will also visit the studios of working artists who make their homes in – and gain their inspiration from — Todos Santos.

Cooking Class with Chef Iker Algorri
Local lawyer turned chef Iker Algorri, author of Cooking Adventures in Baja California Sur and chef-in-residence at Los Colibris Casitas, leads this wonderful Mexican Survival Cooking Class. The emphasis is on having as much fun as possible, learning to make the perfect margarita, and gaining the skill to make some truly delicious Mexican dishes following Chef Iker’s cooking philosophy, the Magnificence of Simplicity. You’ll also probably learn about some great Latin music you’ve never heard before. But be warned – dancing often known to follow this class!

Sierra La Laguna Day Hikes
The Sierra La Laguna Biosphere Reserve is one of Baja´s most beautiful but least explored areas. Part of an island off the coast of Baja 10 million years ago, the Reserve is home to an incredible diversity of plant and animal life. On our hike today we will start at the site of our luxury tent camp, Camp Cecil de la Siera, and hike about 4 hours, getting great views and vistas along the way. It take about an hour to drive to the trailhead.

Luxury Tent Camping on Isla Espiritu Santo
Award-winning Camp Cecil de la Isla is located on the pristine and wildly beautiful Isla Espiritu Santo, part of a National Marine Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The camp includes 8 walk-in tents that have real beds, lovely linens, chairs inside and out, bedside tables with lamps, mirrors, storage areas and towels for beach and bath. Each tent can have either one king bed or two twin beds, and there is room for cots as well. (Added joy: the housekeeping staff cleans the tents and makes the beds each day!) There is a large dining tent with tables, chairs and lounging sofas where the camp chefs serve terrific food throughout the day, starting with cold breakfast and coffee, followed by hot breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner. Two sun shower and two compost toilet cabañas complete the camp. You can spend each day at Camp Cecil doing exactly what pleases you - kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, swimming with sea lions, stand up paddle boarding, bird watching. Checking out cave art, hidden lagoons, deserted beaches. Reading, napping, swimming, chillin'. Sipping margaritas, gazing at stars.
