A Serenading Sunset in Baja California Sur!

Baja California Sur has been labeled paradise between two seas since it is surrounded on both sides by the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez. It’s where the desert meets the sea and it is the sea that draws people to this magical place.

Our trek took us to the Kuyima Campground located at the San Ignacio Lagoon. Every year from January through March the waters off of Baja California serve as breeding grounds for gray whales before they migrate back up to Alaska.

In the morning we would head out on small Mexican fishing boat called “pangas” to have a close encounter of the whale kind. We spent the afternoon eating sumptuous scallops in Kuyimita’s palapa. In the evening, with our tents right next to the whale sanctuary, we were serenaded to sleep listening to the rhythmic sounds of the gray whales.

Happy Travels!
