Gay Destination Wedding in Mexico – Carl & Marne

Carl & Marne’s gay wedding at Villa Santa Cruz was not only a dream come true for this awesome couple, but very personal for us as hosts.

We hope to host more same sex weddings in the future, this was a blast! Escaping the cold and snow in Reno,…

Turtle Releases

The critically endangered Leatherback Turtles need your help! Due to environmental and human population factors, these turtles now lay their eggs on the beaches of Todos Santos where the sand temperatures are too low for the eggs to hatch naturally.

You can participate in the effort by helping release baby turtles into…
