Baja California Activities
Jutting out between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, Baja California is a marine-lovers dream destination to rival the Galapagos with whales, dolphins, giant mantas, and hammerhead sharks inhabiting the waters. Here you can experience the unforgettable thrill of witnessing the migration of grey whales or snorkelling alongside gentle whale sharks. Find the perfect wave surfing off the coast of Playa Costa Azul, land the ‘big one’ sport fishing around La Paz or kayak through mangroves.
Baja California Food & Drink
Fish tacos, catch of the day, grilled lobster: in Baja California food is all about the freshest mariscos (seafood). Make a trip to Puerto Nuevo, the self-proclaimed ‘Lobster Capital of Baja’ to dine on lobster cooked a dozen ways – we recommend the grilled Pacific. You’ll also find almejas (clams) served raw or stuffed, taquerías for deliciously cheap tacos and food carts selling stuffed chilies. And to drink? A cold bottled of local Pacifico beer or a refreshing margarita, this is Mexico after all!
Baja California Attractions
Discover there’s more to Baja California than impressive coastlines and sea life. Deep in the heart of the Sierra de San Francisco mountain ranges are mysterious prehistoric cave paintings said to be at least 2,000 years old and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Head to the town of Todos Santos for a dose of culture where 19th century haciendas have been turned into art galleries or explore Isla Espíritu Santo for untouched beaches and sea lion colonies.
