Scott Zornig is organizing the fourth Swim Camp Mexico in Baja California on the Sea of Cortez.

Swim Camp Mexico IV will be held between March 13th – 17th 2019 at the Rancho Lenero Resort in Cabo Mexico.

Zornig describes the camp, “If you like margaritas and Mexican folk dance, amazing walks along a secluded white sand beach, and swimming in 76°F (24°C) crystal clear ocean water during spring, register before January 15th.”

Co-founder Marc Horwitz further explains more, “Swim Camp Mexico is an intimate boutique camp limited to 30 swimmers. The recently renovated Inn at Rancho Leonero, an old-style Mexican resort nestled between the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range and the Sea of Cortez on the sun-drenched southern Baja California peninsula, is our host hotel. It is located approximately 60 miles northeast of Cabo San Lucas – 45 minutes from the San Jose del Cabo Airport – on one of the nicest swimming beaches on the East Cape.

The reef immediately in front of the hotel has an abundance of sea life. During March, whales can be seen passing only a few hundred yards from shore.

After swimming in the 70°F (21°C) – 75°F (24°C) crystal clear ocean water, you can enjoy the resorts outdoor pool, bar and amenities including kayaking, snorkeling and stand-up paddle boarding or take a 4-wheel cruise along the beach.”

Swim Camp Mexico is 5 days, 4 nights and includes all meals, insurance and ground transportation between airport and resort. US$685 include double occupancy rooms, 3 meals per day excluding alcohol, transportation to and from the San Jose del Cabo airport, and insurance until January 15th 2019. There are also 4 deluxe, oceanfront rooms available for US$885 per person, double occupancy.

Zornig also says, “This year’s camp is not only one night longer compared to previous years, but we also are excited to include a Thursday night wine tasting, Friday night salsa dancing, daily yoga sessions, the one-mile Swim for Lynn Ocean Plunge that benefits the Pancreatic Cancer Foundation on Saturday morning on behalf of Lynn Kubasek, and the Saturday evening all-you-can-eat rib dinner, mariachi band and award ceremony.

Swimmers can also take advantage of professional sports massage, chartered fishing boats, ATV rentals and stand-up paddle boarding for extra fees.

You may also enjoy a lazy day in the hammocks next to the swimming pool. There is truly something for everyone to do and no pressure to ocean swim.”

We were able to release 100 baby sea turtles into the wild as part of last year’s Swim Camp Mexico in Baja California on the Sea of Cortez,” recalled Zornig. “We released these 100 leatherback turtles who were hatched only 3 hours earlier.”

They will do the same at Swim Camp Mexico IV.
