Aptly named after the Chirinola cactus, or the scientific species name, Eruca, meaning caterpillar. These cactus are endemic to the islands of Magdalena Bay growing horizontally only 5 cm per year! Like these cactuses, life at the camp is unique and always moving forward at a slow and steady pace. This family-owned and operated ecotourism project was created to show travelers and explorers alike a different way of life than the other tourist-flooded cities of Mexico.
Each spacious 20×20 ft tent has wooden deck flooring and mats to ensure you don’t carry any sand into your clean bed. Also, each tent contains tables, a couch, power strip, a large floor fan, bedside lamps, and lots of places to hang damp towels and clothes. The beds have a pillow top duvet, large pillows, and extra blankets. Each room is suited for 2-3 people with twin beds for singles and king beds for couples. We stock the rooms with bath towels and face towels for each guest. Each bed faces a window to the sea with floor-length curtains for privacy.
There are two full bathrooms just a few steps from your tent with hot water showers inside, and washing sinks with mirrors on the outside. The toilets flush regularly and there is a septic system. Each bathroom is stocked with shampoo, body soap, and anti-bacterial hand soap.
The common area consists of dining tables and chairs, a full bar, a full kitchen, coffee and tea station, brick oven, hammocks, a small library, and board games. The perfect place to kick back and enjoy the breezy view over the bay.
Your private chef Raul is a master at preparing Mag Bay’s specialty: FRESH SEAFOOD. Every day the local fishermen will bring locally caught seafood to our camp for Raul to prepare for you in any way that you like. We will have 3 meals a day plus snacks and fruit available at all times. In our open kitchen, Raul can teach you how to prepare traditional Mexican meals, show you the best way to season the fish you caught that day, or simply just watch the master at work! Although Mag Bay is known for its delectable seafood, we serve a variety of food that is sure to fill your appetite. Plus, we can fulfill any and every type of diet and dietary request, including vegan and gluten-free. The best part: we source all of our food locally! 85 percent of fruits and veggies come from the farms on the mainland nearby, the fish of course comes from the bay, all the meat comes from farmers that you would have passed on your way in, and our delicious tortillas are handmade from a local woman right in town.
