With a glittering infinity pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean, beautifully-decorated private villas, tranquil gardens and panoramic views, Los Colibris Casitas is the ultimate hideaway in Mexico’s Baja California Sur. Located just a five-minute drive down a winding dirt road from the charming, magic town of Todos Santos, this idyllic spot is the perfect place to get away from it all.
The boutique property was built in 2004, and is owned by an incredibly sweet couple named Sergio and Bryan Jauregui. The couple met when Bryan–who is originally from the USA–travelled to the area with her sisters, and Sergio happened to be their guide. They have since launched Todos Santos Eco Adventures which leads excursions around B.C.S., and also operates glamping resorts in the Sierra La Laguna Biosphere Reserve and Camp Cecil on Isla Espiritu Santo.
The accommodations at Los Colibris Casitas
With only nine units sleeping a maximum of 26 guests it never feels busy here, and the property was cleverly designed to ensure privacy; think patios surrounded by leafy palms, winding stone pathways that makes it feel like you’re walking through a secret garden, and plenty of private outdoor space for each casa and casita. If you time your visit right, you might even be able to watch whales migrate from the comfort of your sun-soaked balcony!
Sleeping anywhere from two to four guests, each authentically-designed villa has sweeping views of the ocean and surrounding Sierra de la Laguna mountains. Casa Colina and Casa Colibris are the biggest, with perks like full kitchens, two huge bedrooms, a living area and multiple outdoor patios, including rooftop balconies for unobstructed ocean views and stargazing.
Babisuri House is the most modern, and has three large, wheelchair accessible suites. It’s built into the hillside with lovely touches like outdoor showers, king size beds and spacious lounge areas.
Each room is equipped with amenities like air conditioning, a fan, beach towels and umbrellas, a hair dryer and coffee maker. There’s also complimentary, on-site parking. Rates at Los Colibris Casitas range from $105 to $265 a night. Click here to book
Amenities at Los Colibris Casitas
The laid-back vibe at Los Colibris is best experienced around the outdoor pool area, which also features a hot tub and plenty of loungers. From the deck, guests can often spot whales, manta rays skimming along the ocean’s surface, and even horseback riders on the beach.
There‘s one on-site restaurant called Iker’s Colibris Cafe, which serves breakfast every morning as well as fresh fruit juices and smoothies. Foodies will want to arrange a cooking class with chef-in-residence Iker Algorri, and learn how to make traditional Mexican faves like tangy margaritas, guacamole and spicy chile rellenos. Chances are you’ll be joined by at least a few of the Jaureguis’ dogs hoping for treats!
Birders love staying at Los Colibris (which means ‘the hummingbirds’ in Spanish) as more than 150 species of tropical birds have been spotted in the surrounding area, including the Gray Thrasher and Belding’s Yellowthroat which are endemic to Baja California Sur. There’s also plenty of flora and fauna which are a mix of imported and native plants, and arid hills dotted with cacti leading to a yoga deck. The views from above are incredible, and best enjoyed at sunset.
Fun things to do around Los Colibris Casitas
One of the best things about staying at Los Colibris Casitas is how many fun things there are to do on its doorstep, as well as around Todos Santos. A 10 minute walk leads down to a deserted, pristine beach with crashing waves and golden sand, framed by a freshwater estuary and palm grove oasis. The coastline has miles of beaches, as well as excellent surf spots like Cerritos Beach and the fun El Faro Beach Club which is a 15 minute drive away.
Todos Santos Eco Adventures can arrange excursions like swimming with whale sharks in La Paz, deep sea fishing, hiking, snorkeling with sea lions in the Sea of Cortez and watching sea turtle hatchlings be released. The city of La Paz can easily be explored on a day trip, as well as La Ventana and Los Barriles which are renowned areas for wind sports.
Whether you’re looking for a place to relax and unwind or need a base for adrenaline-fuelled adventures around the peninsula, Los Colibris Casitas is one of the top Todos Santos resorts and a fantastic place to experience the best of Baja hospitality.
