Would you like to see a 23 foot long baby weighing about two and a half tons? Or a denizen of the deep weighing in at 200 tons and stretching to 110 feet?
The Sea of Cortez, on the coast of Mexico, is the place. It’s an area rich in sea food (for humans as well as whales) so it attracts huge numbers of humpback, blue and fin whales, plus playful dolphins and sea lions. Not to mention whale watchers from across the world.
Away from the whales, Baja California also offers picturesque colonial towns, fine beaches and fascinating insights into the Mayan and Aztec cultures.
