Whale-watching and lost history on the remote Baja
Imagine a land of wild beauty, rich in wildlife and littered with incredible lost history and you’re halfway to Baja California. Our Baja California holidays let you witness the spectacular migration of gray whale and giant sea turtle. You can watch sea lion frolic in the water and discover hidden underwater civilisations.
In fact, San Ignacio Lagoon is the premier spot in America (and perhaps the world) for whale-watching. We recommend you travel between January and April, when species including the Pacific Gray Whale and the world's largest mammal, the Blue Whale, migrate south from Alaska. Located on the Sea of Cortez, Loreto is a great starting point for whale-watching tours and diving expeditions in the Sea of Cortez.
Baja contains some of Mexico's first Spanish missions and there are cave paintings made by pre-Columbian civilisations too. These provide a glimpse into the ancient history of this remote peninsula. Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo have become hotspots for sport fishing and golf. And if you’re looking for luxury accommodation, you’re in luck – the hotels in Baja California are among some of the best in the world.
Our guides will take you to the fine colonial buildings and beautiful beaches of La Paz, the region’s capital. And Todos Santos houses art galleries, cafes and restaurants, making it the bohemian capital of Baja California. Experience the friendly atmosphere that accompanies the big waves and laid-back approach to life here.
