This 5 day / 4 night trip is designed to take the stress and guesswork out of your kayaking vacation.

This route offers a nice mix between a kayak expedition and a relaxing island vacation.  We'll change campsites every second night and have the option to paddle every day, while still leaving lots of time to swim, snorkel, hike, or just relax on the beach. We will explore the islands of Danzante and Carmen, stopping at our favorite beaches. This is also a great trip for beginners or families with children.

We are happy to share with you any touring knowledge you are interested in. Learn about the variety of kayaking and camping equipment available on the market,  tips for route planning, and menu-planning expedition-style.  After this you'll be ready to go on your own adventures!
