The Sea Lion Sanctuary
40 kilometers south of San Quintín, there is a natural attraction with an unparalleled view. "La lobera" is an extraordinary place in the shape of a crater where you can appreciate the arrival of seals and sea lions that seek to rest and sunbathe.
A natural viewpoint that receives hundreds of tourists every day, “La lobera” offers a spectacle of the aquatic life of Baja California. The characteristic shape of “La lobera” is due to hundreds of years of erosion caused by the impact of the sea, turning it into an oceanic paradise in the middle of the desert.
In order to get there, it is necessary to drive through the desert, arriving to Ensenada and towards the south of Baja California. As you walk along the path, you can enjoy the landscape surrounded by trees and mountains.
