Located to the west of Mexico, Baja California is a peninsula of rugged mountains and islands facing out into the Pacific Ocean, known for being the southernmost point of the Grey Whales' yearly migration. Between January and March every year thousands of whales come to these temperate waters to give birth to their young. Baja California also has a wealth of history and architecture, from cave paintings dating back thousands of years, to the Jesuit Missions which were established there during the Colonial period.
At the southern tip of Baja California, Los Cabos is a fantastic meeting point of the ochre tones of the desert and the cobalt blue colours of the sea of Cortés. With its beautiful white sandy beaches and world-class resorts, Los Cabos has become one of the most popular destinations in Baja California, offering a unique picture postcard whose beauty will delight those who visit.
