Non-Angler Activities

Not an Angler? That’s okay!.

The El Gallo Fly Fishing Lodge experience offers more than just world class fishing. Whether you’re just not a big fan of teaching flies to swim, or you’ve hit your limit for the day, there’s more to offer. If you’re the “rest in seclusion” type, you’ve come to the right place. The El Gallo Lodge features two side by side mountain top haciendas in an exclusive gated community. You can soak all day in our gorgeous saltwater pools in peace and privacy, or just find a comfortable spot to enjoy the view and curl up with a good book. 

Nearby La Ventana is just a short drive away, where you can explore and immerse yourself in local Mexican culture. We work with the school there to provide supplies, and support the local economy in whatever we can. Our staff take great pride in being locals and are happy to serve as guides to the local area. 

We know that a favorite pastime for many visitors to Mexico is shopping. The merchandise is unique and colorful, and the prices are great! Have our driver take you and your guests to La Paz about an hour away, where you can shop for just about anything you might be looking for, and take in the local sites, try local cuisine, and enjoy the Mexican culture. 

Water sports without the fishing!

El Gallo also has access to a beautiful sailboat. The staff can set up a captained charter tour to nearby Espiritu Island, a World Heritage site, designated as a national park, where guests can see dolphins, sea lions and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Enjoy the view from the boat, or engage in local excursions such as snorkeling, kayaking, or just hiking the rugged terrain. 

If you’re not sure about your “sea legs” adventure awaits you just outside the mountaintop oasis on an ATV ride, snorkeling from the private beach, hiking through the beautiful Baja California desert to catch a glimpse of local flora and fauna, or just relaxing on the gorgeous beaches. This is Baja California Sur, and our staff will help find activities to inspire even the most discerning traveler.
