This 760-mile-long peninsular is split between the Northern part of Baja California and Baja California Sur - backed by the Sierra de Baja California mountain range, sand-swept deserts, dense jungles and beautiful coastal cities.
These astounding landscapes are truly unique compared to the Mexican mainland, offering visitors some incredible experiences. Sample wine in the Guadalupe Valley, go whale watching in Los Cabos, swim with sharks in La Paz and snorkel with sea lions off Isla Espiritu Santo.
Off the coast of La Paz, Isla Espiritu Santo is a haven for biodiversity. A remote national park where the sea and desert collide. You can arrange daily tours to go kayaking, paddle boarding and interact with marine life. You can also stay overnight by glamping by a beachside desert oasis.
Los Cabos, the southernmost point of Baja California, consists of two very different towns - Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Cabo San Lucas is a well-known holiday destination with many accolades including being known as the “Aquarium of the World". Swim up close with dolphins and whale sharks or even ride a camel through the Mexican desert. Do not forget to marvel at the breathtaking rock formations of the Arch of Cabo San Lucas, relax in a spa or indulge in an all-inclusive resort. The quieter alternative is San Jose del Cabo, with its small-town feel and an artsy historical centre. There are cobbled streets with quaint shops and charming plazas, boutique hotels, and mouth-watering dining options, perfect for foodies. While there are fewer activities compared to Cabo San Lucas, the endless panoramic ocean views overlooking white sand beaches still attract many visitors.
Loreto is a lovely town of cobbled streets, colonial plazas and Spanish architecture, founded in the late 1600’s by Jesuit missionaries. Today, visitors can enjoy local craft beers in streetside cafes, wander along the malecon and try fresh fish tacos. Nearby Bahia de Loreto Marine Park is a fabulous place for watersports and whale watching (December – March).
The colourful town of Todos Santos is also a popular place to stay. Known for hosting different yoga retreats and attracting artists from around the world. Visit uncrowded beaches and bohemian art galleries, splurge on handmade crafts and dine on local food.
The best time to visit Baja California is between December and April. The temperatures are cooler and the conditions are great for various watersports, sailing and boat trips. This is also the whale-watching season, where humpback, finback, blue or gray whales, as well as pods of dolphin, can be seen. The whale shark season in La Paz runs from October to May.
