Guest can fly into La Paz Airport (LAP) or Los Cabos International Airport (SJD). Transfers to the hotel are included for arrival into either airport, but if you arrive into SJD, you may have to wait for the next transfer time (SJD is further from the hotel, so guests will be picked up in groups). Guests arriving into LAP will be picked up individually upon arrival for transfer to the hotel.



Daily pick-ups are at 8:00 am for diving.
