Baja California, Desert and Whales
BAJA CALIFORNIA: WHERE THE WHALES ARE STROKED
Dreamy beaches, secluded bays and lagoons where whales congregate to breed and “take on” their young; the desert, oases and rare species of animals and plants; rock paintings, many Catholic missions and beautiful towns, typical relaxed atmosphere: these, in a nutshell, are the major attractions of this corner of the world.
Whale watching is one of Baja’s most important attractions: these majestic creatures can be observed, approached and even stroked. The fauna observed in Baja is not limited to whales, certainly along the coast there are colonies of fur seals, sea lions, dolphins, several species of birds and, inside, in desert areas, lynx, cougar, bighorn sheep and white-tailed deer.
Baja will not disappoint those who love outdoor activities: Here you can practice surfing, windsurfing, parasailing, canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving.
