We weren't able to stay in one of the yurts - totally full - but did stay in the little casita which we shared with a friend (3 of us). Clean and roomy, but mosquitos bothered us. The whole place itself is pretty fun and...More
My wife & I stayed here for one night after visiting the whales in Laguna San Ignacio.
What a GREAT find!! Terry Marcer (owner) was very helpful in setting up our reservation and is
extremely prompt with her internet responses. This was our first time...More
If you are put off by the idea of staying in a yurt, then you haven't seen these. Run by Terri and Gary Marcer (Canadian Expats) the rooms are very comfortable and wonderfully appointed. During whale watching season (Feb-Mar) you need to make reservations well...More
We were on our way to see the Grey Whales in San Ignacio Lagoon in March and needed a place to stay the night before. This is a great place; comfortable, convenient and cozy. The owners were absent, but their back-up is superior! Great hosts;...More
Beautiful location along the river in San Ignacio. We loved the uniqueness of staying in a yurt. We stayed in the China Wall yurt and absolutely loved it. We had a great view of the river from our patio. We arrived late and went down...More

Just a note re the whale tours - I unfortunately didn't get out to Ignacio Lagoon - it was just too early. The grey whales migrate down the lagoons, from Scammons near Guerrero Negro, then Ignacio and then down to Bahia Magdalena.
It's odd because the tours out to Bahia Magdalena run from La Paz very early (because the whales are there), and tours also run from Scammons (both tours from the hotels and tours from the local nature reserve - which I cannot recommend highly enough and the locals often refer to this as Scammons even though the whole lagoon is Scammons) and pangas go out from Todos Santos to see grey whales that don't go into the lagoons (these are the whales that are not breeding) and humpbacks, but the Ignacio Laguna trips seem to start later, only when the baby whales are a bit bigger and you are more likely to have them come up to the boats.
There are quite a few places that offer cabanas on the shore of Ignacio Lagoon, but if you are adventurous you can also use the very basic cabanas at the reserve at Scammons (which are 10 US dollars including showers and eco toilets) but it's not a campsite and you may well end up sharing the area with people just excited to find a cheap place to park (there was a huge group of guys going on a rally further north one morning and I was really glad I'd decided it was too cold to camp there - but another night there was a lovely family with an RV and I envied them hanging out there all night watching the whales blow - yes you can see them from the shore!)
Hope that's enough info and not too much. All the whales are wonderful and I do hope one day to also see them at Ignacio as i really loved Ignacio Springs.
