Mexico is a country that always leaves you with your mouth hanging, with your heart beating and makes you live unforgettable experiences.
In every corner of this nation there are secrets, places and flavors that we should know, but natural biodiversity, without a doubt, is the most perfect gift it has given us.
Among all the variety of flora and fauna that we can find, one of the most attractive natural spectacles that we can witness is whale watching. These aquatic mammals will definitely take your breath away with their majesty and tranquility.
There are different places in Mexico where we can admire these aquatic giants, either during specific seasons or by luck.
The city of Loreto
is located on the Baja California Sur
peninsula; on its coasts, it is possible to admire the blue whale, for that you must navigate to the Bahía de Loreto National Park
, the perfect sanctuary for whales. They take you to watch them from a distance of 100 m so you can appreciate them and not scare them. The ideal season to meet these species is from January to March.
In the months of December to April, you can witness this amazing natural spectacle in Cabo San Lucas
where dozens of humpback whales arrive from the Arctic Ocean
in search of warm waters. You may also be lucky enough to observe them from the window of a hotel near the coast or on the shore of the beach
In Bahía de Magdalena
, just off the coast of Baja California Sur
, you can find the gray whales
. These come thanks to the warm sensation of the crossing of the waters of Alaska and the Pacific Ocean, they also take advantage of this territory to make it their own and give birth to their offspring. The ideal months to admire them are from January to March.
Mexico has become home to these incredible and majestic beings. There are several beautiful places to go marvel at their spectacle. Whether you see them swimming quietly in the company of their calves, hear them sing from afar, or be fortunate enough to get close, they will definitely make you sigh more than once.
