Best Trip Yet to the Baja!
My wife and I have been traveling the Baja for years and have recently discovered kiteboarding we found ourselves staying at Sea Sniper Baja this year. This is our third trip to the La Ventana/El Sargento area and has been our favorite place to stay by far. The location is perfect! It’s in a quiet area next to our favorite beach. Only a block away it’s an easy stroll on a quiet dead-end road. We stayed in the upstairs room which had a lovely view of the Sea of Cortez and enjoyed comforting breezes during the day. The bathrooms are large, well equipped and maintained, and have large showers – ours had a view of the sea! The communal kitchen was perfect. We both love to cook and found it well equipped, large, and very accommodating. If you don’t want to cook, there are many good restaurants nearby offering traditional Mexican fare and some with non-traditional menus. The Casitas enjoy lovely gardens and a large covered courtyard to hang out on when your not out enjoying the water-sports, sightseeing, or fishing. We found our stay very private. When a family stayed in the other suites we found we could have our privacy and enjoy meeting other guests when we wanted. Chay and Linda were wonderful hosts and we quickly became friends. Chay is a master spearfisher if you’re looking to enjoy the bounty of the Sea of Cortez. Kiteboarding?? This is a great area and Chay will quickly get you going in the right direction. We’re coming back next year!!
Classy, Comfortable, Beautiful Baja Retreat
Linda and Chay have built a gorgeous place with their own hands and the level of good taste and care, down to the smallest of details, is impressive and inviting. This was our first stay at Sea Sniper but it was our 9th time in the area and the accommodations at Sea Sniper are by far the classiest and most beautiful that we’ve ever had the pleasure of enjoying during our annual trips that last an average of 14 days. We felt like we were staying at someone’s beautiful home. The location is steps off of a gorgeous beach that is ideal for kiting. The honeymoon suite bed was super comfortable and the views were gorgeous, both daytime and night. Relaxing in bed and watching the moonlight dance on the Sea of Cortez is something to be experienced. It’s important to add that if you like to sleep in you’ll want to bring an eye mask as the sun will be your alarm clock. However, early to bed early to rise is the Baja way of life, so take that for what it’s worth. The shared kitchen and outdoor dining area couldn’t have been more convenient or perfect. We were well cared for from the moment we arrived to the moment we left and were sad to leave. We will be back.
Awesome Honeymoon Spot
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Linda and Chay’s incredible resort. Their hospitality and their capable staff of local fishermen gave us a week of fishing paradise we will never forget! Chay went out of his way to put us on shallow reefs where we would be comfortable freediving and spearfishing, which was an absolute blast. His crew also took us to spots for rod and reel fishing where we racked up on tuna and dorado. I can’t believe how much fish we came home with! I highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a magical fishing experience off the beaten path.

Great Baja California Sur Experience
We stayed 6 days at Sea Sniper Baja with our freedive spearfishing group. The facilities were beautifully crafted, very clean and interesting. The owners were wonderful hosts and coordinated our boat trips (blue water and reef drift diving). The group brought in Wahoo, AJ, Dorado, Pargo, Yellowfin, and several others. Sea Sniper Baja is very close to a beach and in a quiet part of the nearby small town. We had a fun time, a great trip.
Chay & Linda have a beautiful little oasis on the Sea of Cortez. They were wonderful hosts and took great care of us. We went for a week with a spearfishing group. Lots of fish caught, fish tales swapped, and great memories made. The food was amazing and the lodging was comfortable, and clean. Stop and admire the beautiful hand crafted wood work throughout the place, courtesy of Chay. Beautiful craftsmanship! Thank you for such a wonderful experience. Until next time….
Chay and Linda are fantastic people who helped make our trip unforgettable. Everything in their villa is in pristine condition and this attitude carries onto the water. Chay ensured we got on fish while tailoring our outings to what we wanted to do. His instructions were invaluable and it felt more like hanging out with friends than chartering an excursion. We definitely want to go back out with Sea Sniper Baja to repeat this trips success.
Away from it all
I love small boutique hotels and their lovely, peaceful getaway feeling! This was SUCH a great place to stay; from the warm greeting of Linda and Chay to the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. We felt so welcomed and comfortable. The accommodations are right in every detail and fit the area perfectly. Although known for their fishing tours, we were taken on a great snorkeling tour. They did, however, catch a fish for us, cleaned it and taught us how to make ceviche – delicious! This place is away from the hustle and bustle, but with a car, easy to go to La Paz. The only thing I would change is the name😊! Absolutely first rate and I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to snorkel, fish, kite surf or just kick back and relax.flavor and culture. I also love the comfort and amenities of big chains. This is the best of both worlds. Online reviews of this experience are accurate…it’s a great place in a great location, at a great price.
