What our specialists say...

A wonderful trip for those looking to primarily see the whales off the Baja Coast of Mexico from mid-January to mid-March, but combined with an opportunity to explore the Mexican capital for a few days on the beach of southern Baja California. Begin your trip with a couple of days staying in the historic centre of Mexico City with time to visit the famous ruins of Teotihuacan. From here fly over to La Paz in Baja California which is your base in the search of whales. You will take boat trips on to the surrounding waters to search for Gray and Humpback Whales in particular. However, dolphins, sealions and prolific birdlife also populate this region of Mexico. Finish with a few days at a beautiful beach hotel on the southern tip of the Peninsula. Please do note that whale watching is only possible between mid-January and mid-March.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Mexico City
  • La Paz
  • San Jose del Cabo
