Dive into the blue waters along Mexico’s Baja coast to experience what famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteau called the “Aquarium of the World.” Scuba diving and snorkeling will bring you face-to-fin with exotic marine life darting through ethereal coral structures. Lucky swimmers may spot marine varieties like tropical fish, turtles, sharks, manta rays and whales. The winter months are whale watching season. Thousands of whales enter the Sea of Cortés from January to March and your chances of spotting one of the six types of whales that visit the area are high. If you prefer to stay dry, book a scenic coastal cruise to the famed El Arco, the dramatic natural rock formation that marks the confluence of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortés. Your captain will guide you along breathtaking landscapes, unspoiled beaches and secluded coves as you sip an ice-cold Mexican beer or margarita.
Book a camel safari, an unforgettable eco-adventure that combines spectacular views, delicious cuisine and a camel ride on the beach. Drive into the heart of the Baja outback to meet up with the friendly camels who will transport you on a unique caravan through the desert by the sea. Keep an eye out for whales frolicking offshore during the winter months from your vantage point atop the camel. Back on your feet, an expert guide will lead you on a tour through the desert, pointing out the unusual land formations and explaining the indigenous flora and fauna. Your nature walk leads you to a restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean, where you'll dine on traditional Mexican food and taste a few types of tequila.
San Jose del Cabo is a great spot for cultural and historic touring. Stroll along charming, tree-lined streets and appreciate the colorful murals on your way to the historic town plaza. Stop for lunch at one of the local restaurants for an authentic meal with sweeping panoramic views of the Bay of Cabo San Lucas and El Arco in the distance. Arrange a daytrip to the village of Todos Santos, or “All Saints”, where you can visit a historic Jesuit mission, explore the small shops, glance through one of the many art galleries and visit the Hotel California. Or arrange to spend an afternoon at a spectacular oceanfront resort where you can sunbathe on a luxurious lounger with endless views or walk down to the beach for a refreshing ocean swim.
