Holiday Hideaway: Glamping at Camp Cecil

Say adios to 2017 with a focus on rejuvenating and recharging at Camp Cecil Luxury Tent Camping. Located on Espiritu Santo Island, a UNESCO World Heritage site, this retreat is far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The serene island is colourful and calming with white sand beaches and warm turquoise waters. Camp Cecil is the perfect place to begin fresh for 2018 and connect back to nature. Take a digital detox and kayak, paddleboard, or swim in one of the most diverse waterways in the world, the Sea of Cortez, home to 39% of the world’s marine mammals and over 890 fish species.


Enjoy a good book and an oceanfront gourmet lunch at Espiritu Xantus Café before heading out on a hike of the island with bilingual, certified naturalist guides. The camp has a number of well-deserved accolades including topping National Geographic’s Luxury Tent Camp (2017) and receiving Sunset Magazine’s Travel Star Award (2017). It offers everything you need including well-appointed canvas tents with real beds and soft linens, as well as storage, beach towels, and bathroom facilities. For those who want to recharge after the holidays you’re in luck, the camp is the island’s first and only year-round camping property.
