Epic desert landscapes, dramatic ocean views, astonishing marine life, quaint colonial towns, picture-perfect beaches and year-round sunshine. This is what you can expect from a trip to Baja California.

Extending from California into the Pacific Ocean, the Mexican peninsula of Baja California is more than just a place to relax by the sea. It’s blessed with some of the country’s most dynamic natural scenery, including huge canyons, jagged mountains, remote deserts and the unblemished blue of the ocean.

Baja California is separated from the mainland by the Sea of Cortez, a nutrient-rich ocean teeming with fascinating marine species including humpback, blue and fin whales who share the water with giant sea turtles, playful dolphins and sea lions.

With options ranging from desert and whale watching excursions to sea kayaking and snorkelling, there is plenty to keep busy in Baja California. The peninsula is especially popular with surfers thanks to the world-class breaks and year-round quality surfs. For those seeking barefoot luxury, you’ll find secluded, sun-drenched corners studded with uber-luxury resorts that have made Baja California a playground for the rich and famous.

Away from the beaches there are picturesque colonial towns, enchanting desert scenery and fascinating insights into the Mayan and Aztec cultures. Make time to explore the 18th century town of San Jose del Cabo with its colonial centre, art galleries and quirky boutique hotels.
