The colors of the Mexican Baja are sharp and true; the aquamarine of the ocean, the bright blue of the sky, the sienna of the landscape and the riot of the colors of the desert flowers and the buildings in towns – happy sunflower yellow, warm rose red, deep cactus green. The towns here range from small villages by the sea to the larger resort areas of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. The last two, known together as Los Cabos, have distinct town centers with excellent restaurants, lively bars and good shopping, and outlaying areas with seafront resorts ranging from modest to opulent.
enjoy Baja just by lounging by the sea and taking in the rays, but then you
will miss most of what it has to offer. Apart from the fascinating landscape of
the desert, the wealth of the nature is in the ocean.
The famous Socorro Islands in the Revillagigedo Archipelago is a
destination you will not forget. Most of the giant mantas of the world are
aloof and downright moody but here they are curious and interactive. Dolphins
are common and sometimes very friendly. You can expect many different species
of sharks including the silky, Galapagos, hammerhead and many reef sharks. The
occasional tiger shark glides by and humpback whales in great numbers are
spotted between January and April. The liveaboards visiting the area are the
Nautilus Explorer, Rocio del Mar and the Solmar V and the best season is between November and
April. From early spring to late fall, kayaking trips around Baja’s rich waters
are great fun for the whole family.
