John Steinbeck’s “Galapagos of Mexico” – Sea of Cortez

There really is no question as to why John Steinbeck coined this area of Mexico as the countries Galapagos! The Sonoran desert and the crystal blue waters surrounding Las Animas near the Bay of the Angels are home to an impressive variety of abundant food supply and diverse habitats. You’ll experience perhaps the most spectacular collection of marine plants, birds and mammals found anywhere in the world. 23 species of dolphins and whales, including the largest whales in the world, the Fin and Blue whales, have been sighted in Canal de Los Ballenas (just whale canal), east of Las Animas. 800 fish species, 120 species of cactus, and the largest concentration of seabirds found anywhere in the Sea of Cortez are all here to discover.

This was a great trip! I highly recommend it!

We were a little apprehensive booking a trip coming all the way from Ireland, but once we met up with Baja Airventures in San Diego and then went on to see the Grey Whales in Baja, this turned out to be the best trip we’ve ever taken, and that’s saying a lot! Sara Templeton
