Pocos lugares del mundo pueden mezclar la belleza del desierto con la grandiosidad del mar como Los Cabos. Este pequeño municipio de Baja California Sur, México es una de las opciones preferidas de los turistas cuando quieren pasar un buen rato y olvidarse de las complicaciones de la vida diaria. Cualquiera que lo visite será testigo de bellezas naturales muy atractivas, sentirá la calidez de su gente y podrá descubrir lo que el Golfo de California, el Mar de Cortés y el Océano Pacífico tienen para ofrecer. No te puedes perder el avistamiento de ballenas y en caso de que prefieras conocer parte del arrecife coralino que recorre todo el continente, ve a Cabo Pulmo. Y si tienes un poco de suerte, podrás ver el dragón que vigila al mar de Los Cabos. Por el alojamiento ni te preocupes ya que encontrarás hoteles de clase mundial.

Avistamiento de ballenas

Cada año, de octubre a marzo, Los Cabos reciben a millones de ballenas grises que buscan pasar el invierno en aguas cálidas para tener a sus crías. Ver a estas enormes criaturas es una experiencia muy especial y podrás hacerlo en cualquiera de los tours en barco que salen durante todo el día desde las diversas playas de Cabo San Lucas.
Estos paseos suelen durar de tres a cuatro horas durante las cuales el barco las acompaña en su recorrido. Si no deseas tomar el paseo en bote o buscas una experiencia más cercana, puedes ver a las ballenas desde la playa mientras tomas el sol o estar a muy poca distancia mientras surfeas o buceas. Esta última opción te dejará realmente sin aliento y sentirás la adrenalina de estar a lado de uno de los animales más grandes del mundo.

El dragón de Los Cabos

The famous dragon of Los Cabos is nothing other than a huge rock arch formed of granite whose figure resembles a dragon with its head submerged in water, also called El Arco. It is located in the farthest part of the peninsula and divides the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of ​​Cortez. At low tide it is possible to go down and walk next to the Arch, while at high tide we can only see it from the boat.
This area is very rich in marine life and it is not surprising that we see pelicans and sea lions along the beach for what UNESCO declared it World Heritage of Bio-Reserves in 1995.

Cabo Pulmo

Since you are in Los Cabos, you cannot miss the opportunity to visit Cabo Pulmo National Park . This park is of great importance worldwide because it is part of the coral reef on the eastern Pacific coast, the only one of its kind and that covers the entire continent: from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. Its aquatic beauty contrasts with the flora and fauna of the desert.
When swimming and surfing in Cabo Pulmo you will see its various species of fish, corals, algae, dolphins and whale sharks, among others. Because we are talking about a nature reserve there are certain rules that we cannot ignore, all of them seek to respect the life of local species and promote their care.
