Whales, cacti, and desert landscapes on Baja California
Baja California, the sparsely populated Mexican peninsula south of San Diego, is a paradise for nature lovers.

There is no better place on earth to watch whales and their young than here.
This one week tour starts and ends in the Mexican resort town of Loreto. We explore the desert landscapes, the historic towns and go whale watching and sailing in the bay near Loreto.
