Ecolodge Tres Virgenes EcoTours


My dog and I arrived at this peaceful place today and here for 2 days. Going on an ecotour tomorrow with "Borrego". This is a wonderful place and very quiet after the overpopulated Bahia Concepcion beaches. Food is great in the restaurant. Cabanas are 350 pesos/night/single with hot water & electricity. Highly recommend.
If you check Google map you can find the location with Tres Virgenes Ecotour. It is on Mex 1 about 30 minutes once you leave Santa Rosalia.
Here are my photos including today's hike near the thermoelectric plant:

It looks awesome. Are these the cabanas you can see north of Mex 1? On a bit of a hill west of the access road?

These are the three virgins cabanas that are located between san Ignacio and santa rosalia.

Very peaceful and really beautiful location!

Here is a trip report I did but for some reason I cannot bring up the photos which ticks me off!

However, there is other info that might be relevant.

Does anyone have a current phone number for Eco Tour Las Tres Virgenes? The number on their Facebook is someone else. I tried another number for them and it's disconnected. An email to the Gmail address listed on their Facebook page didn't bounce, but I got no reply.

I'm hoping for at least a ride out to the base of the volcano (as I'm experienced in desert scrambling solo) or paying more for a guide to the top. However, since this is a full day activity, I'm concerned about springing this on them the day before.

I don't have it. But, I noticed for the first time on Tuesday that there is a new sign on the highway advertising the place. I think it's 350 pesos a night. Someone else might get the contact info from the sign?

Hotel Tres Virgenes


I also was very impressed with the place and "Borrego", the manager.
Here is from my trip report of last February:

The most recently active volcano on the peninsula is passed between San Ignacio and Santa Rosalia, Tres Virgenes is the complex of three volcanoes...






Km. 31.5 Paved road north to an eco-lodge, Volcán Tres Vírgenes (1.8 mi. in). 5 ؙcabins have 10 rooms with shower and toilet, 350 pesos. Food served in the lodge. The paved road beyond the resort (gated) goes to a geothermal electric plant.



Francisco (likes to be called 'Borrego') manages the lodge and he showed me around... I will be back!

we didn't find it our cup of tea but did enjoy touristing around the CFE facility, you can travel north through the well roads until you hit a steep cliff that drops straight down for a mile, the side of the volcano I guess? we spent a half day fooling around the site never had anyone question us!


and a couple old ranch buildings to explore.

Thanks for the research, folks! Unfortunately, that's the same broken phone number as before. If anyone is visiting there in the next two weeks, shoot me a message. I'll keep trying the number. Maybe it will work better when I'm able to call within Baja.

On the rare chance they are filled up, you have lots of options in either direction, 20-30 miles.

Did you ever make it to Tres Virgenes? We too have been trying to contact them re camping/lodging options. No luck so far. If you did get there, please pass along current contact information. Thanks!

In Blanca's old 2010 post there was mention of [future] tours to hotsprings there. Are any hotsprings accessible near the Tres Virgines cabanas?

None were mentioned by 'Borrego' (the manager).
In my books (and I think including Graham's first book), I recall the springs are closer to the north of the volcano...?

It is a very rugged area... In the 1960s, only one road existed to the north from Rancho Tres Virgenes to La Palma (20.5 mi) and San Carlos, 29 mi).

In 2018:
