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.

“My sister summed it up by saying that there was nothing that she would have changed, the holiday was perfect. Mexico was a delight, we had never been before, the people sincerely friendly and helpful, the service as great but everything exceeded expectations. My sister and the children thought that the cenotes were amazing as they were such a surprise but we loved it all.”RN, Ascot
All of the tour guide experiences were memorable and we loved Mexico city. There was so much to see and do in such a short week. I would love to do it again, but over a two week period and over the winter months.JR, Castle Douglas
"Most memorable aspects were all the archaeological sites, which we enjoyed immensely. On the whole, we found local people very kind and helpful."DC, Nottingham
All of it was good. The actual order of places I visited also coincided with the progression of history, from ancient to more recent. Very well arranged indeed.DB, Birmingham
Highlights: Discovering and enjoying the Mexican culture and despite pre visit warnings, being so surprised that Mexico City is nothing like as dangerous a place to visit as I had expected.Cw, Macclesfield

"Mayan sites were really fantastic. Teotihuacan was excellent and Mildred was a very good guide. She enhanced the day."SP, London
We liked the variety of our trip - ancient Mayan ruins, real Mexican towns and people, and beautiful beaches. It was wonderful to access Chichen Itza from the grounds of Mayaland Resort and get in there early and before it was too hot without any crowds. We loved swimming in Dzitnup Cenote.PR
"All of it was great so hard to pick out one thing. We had a lovely mix of ancient sites, modern art, great museums and time to relax. The Day of the Dead celebrations were the main reason for travelling to Mexico in Oct/Nov and, thanks to our guide, they fully met our expectations."FA, Edinburgh
Most memorable experience: Going by fast boat on Usumcinta river to Yaxchilan where howler monkeys and a deserted site made an unforgettable impression. I could go on and on – it was all memorable!PH Victoria
Most memorable aspect: “All the visits to temples and pyramids. With very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant guidesJB Wandsworth
The train from El Fuerte to Divisidero was great - good views with the ability to take photographs through open windows, good food, comfortable seats.JDL, St Neots
Highlight?: The totality of it. Seeing different parts of the country. The mixture of food. ruins and art was just about spot on.KJ, Harlow
As a first time traveler to Central America, I can't stress enough how pleasurable Journey Latin America made Mexico for us. We feel as if we have a million magical memories that will last forever - sunsets over the Caribbean sea, ruins in the midst of the jungles, seas of pink flamingos, crocodiles nestling on the banks of the Canyon Del Sumida. We were nervous as non Spanish speakers but we felt so supported without that horrible feeling of being over organized. Thank you againLH, Pinner
"While is difficult to find the better part, staying in the Hacienda Chichen Resort was magical, seen the Toh bird in Tanka was wonderful, as was swimming in the cenotes there and in Chichen Itza."LCS, London
Most Memorable Experience: The visits to sights and cities open our eyes to a culture that is underrated in Europe. Security is perceived as a problem in Mexico. Yes there is a noticeable police presence, in comparison with the UK, but we never felt threatenedMC
JLA definitely know the Latin American market and we have been very satisfied with both the tailor made and small group tour options. Mexico, like other Latin American countries, does not have the same standards of hygiene and accommodation as we are used to in the UK. Travellers should be prepared for and accept this. We felt that JLA had done all they could to ensure that accommodation was of a good standard and that the tour ran smoothly and would have no hesitation in travelling with them again.ML Runcorn
Highlights?: Too many! Probably seeing Uxmal, the Tiger Egret, swimming in Cenotes (various), Chichen-Itza at dawn and visiting Frida Kahlo's house.AA, Newport

Visiting UxmalDS, Ware
A trip into the Sian Kaan biosphere with a community based tour company was a beautiful way to celebrate a 14th birthday for one of our girls.</p>CL, Stafford

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the holiday but were particularly impressed with the accommodation at the Hacienda VIP and the excursion to Uxmal and Kabah.SS, Liverpool
The visit to Calakmul which was hard work but the reward of climbing the pyramids and seeing the jungle stretching in all directions will stay in the memory. This was followed the next day by a wonderful, and unexpected, half day at Laguna Bacular. We thought we were only going to be driving through on our way to Tulum. However we were treated to an extensive tour of the fortress there followed by a superb boat trip on the lagoon. It was the icing on the cake to a wonderful two days, with an excellent guide (Luis Alberto) and driver (Ivan).PH, Westcliff-on-sea
Highlights?: Tours of Mexico City & Chichen Itza, followed by our stay at Tulum.ER, Surbiton
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..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. (So glad we didn't just drop in en route from Cancun to Merida). Tulum was lovely and the transfer to Isla Mujeres by the hotel is complimentary Catamaran service was fantastic.AF, Merriot
Highlights?: The serenity at Uxmal and the delightful city of OaxacaMF, London
Most memorable experiences: "The Archeological sites, the friendly guides and amazing beach in Tulum."LS, Ruislip
