The Baja California Peninsula, at over 750 miles, is the world’s second longest. It lies in the far northwest and is almost separated from mainland Mexico by the Gulf of California (also called the Sea of Cortez). It extends from the border to Los Cabos on the tip of the peninsula. Here you will find one of the most popular resort areas in Mexico, San Jose del Cabo, its sister town Cabo San Lucas and the corridor which runs between them. It is year long summer here with a Baja California holiday offering everything you could possible want, from nightlife and restaurants to sporting activities and beach life. Celebrities, families and honeymooners rub shoulders and there is something for everyone.
Once you head out of the booming luxury resorts, the region is sparsely populated and you can discover the authentic Baja. The cosmopolitan mix of peoples in the region is nearly as varied as the incredible range of landscapes, old Spanish mission towns, cave paintings, ancient volcanoes and vast remote deserts. This highly popular region really has its own distinctive identity and lifestyle making a Baja California holiday a great addition to a Mexico itinerary.
For wildlife lovers, the seas around the peninsula offer one of the richest whale and dolphin watching areas on the planet, with Humpbacks, Blue, Sperm, Brydes, Orca and many other varieties routinely seen. Each spring the world’s entire population of Grey whales migrate 6,000 miles from Alaska to breed in the lagoons at San Ignacio, on the west coast.
This is a magical experience and a 'must-do' on holidays to Baja California. If sharks are more your thing you can get a safe close-up view of hammerheads at La Paz. The Sea of Cortez is also fantastic for scuba diving and snorkelling, with local sea conditions bringing together a stunning mix of sea life. The area is equally exceptional for game fishing, for Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish and many more.
