- Location – We are located within Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve, at “over 55,555 square-mile (143,600 square km) it is the largest wildlife refuge in all of Latin America and certainly the most diverse.”We have recently added Cabañas San Ignacio to Google Places allowing us to create and link to this great satellite map of Laguna San Ignacio with a pointer directly on the common area palapa (mapa en Español).
- Commitment – We host scientists, graduate students from US and Mexican Universities, and students from local schools, so we have an established reputation as conscious stewards of the lagoon, but don’t take our word for it!
