 Baja California, divided into Northern and Southern states, contains a wide range of natural beauty, a rich diversity of wildlife and varied histories.  From the migration of the gray whales and the giant sea turtles, to the sea lion colonies and hidden underwater civilizations, Baja is home to unique wildlife that is effortlessly accessible.  The rich colonial history of Baja contains some of México's first Spanish missions.  Pre-Columbian civilizations offer remnants of cave paintings that provide a unique glimpse into more recent times and the ancient pasts of Baja.    
    
Whale Lagoons
As the premier spot in North America (and perhaps the world) to go whale watching, Baja contains numerous bays and islands that act as barriers against natural predators.  This barricade allows for intimate viewing and a protected setting for both the whales and their observers.  With species including the Pacific Gray Whale and the world's largest mammal, the Blue Whale, these amazing creatures migrate south from Alaska to reproduce and feast on the rich nutrients provided by off shore mangroves and abundant sea life.
* Optimum time for viewing whales:  January through April.

Loreto
Located on the Sea of Cortez, Loreto is a great location to begin whale-watching tours across the peninsula in Magdalena Bay or to launch a diving expedition in the Sea of Cortez.  

Los Cabos
Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo - This area has become a mecca for sport fishing and golf, or just a sunshine getaway.  Luxury resorts pepper the area and offer great locations to embark on activities ranging from hiking, mountain biking, and whale watching, to sea kayaking, surfing, dining out and relaxing on numerous secluded beaches.

La Paz
The capital of Baja California Sur, La Paz was the first European outpost set up in Baja, and also the location of the first mission on the peninsula.  The fine colonial buildings and beautiful beaches are complimented by spectacular sunsets and great cuisine.  A great place to begin activities, La Paz is also home to the ferry service that goes across the bay to Mazatlan.  

Todos Santos
A small town populated by artists and ex-pats, the quaint an friendly atmosphere accompanies the large waves and laid back approach to life.  Located on the Pacific side of Baja, Todos Santos houses many art galleries, cafes and quaint restaurants, making it the bohemian capital of Baja.

Guest Testimonial

I think when things are going well you could take your Travel Company a little for granted. When things go wrong you really appreciate the depth, concern and sheer professionalism of a company such as yours. Abercrombie and Kent take a huge group hug from Jo and me: you were simply outstanding.
