Isla Espiritu Santo
The Isla Espiritu Santo National Park in the Sea of Cortez is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is one of the best marine life viewing destinations in the world. Whales, dolphins, whale sharks, sea turtles, manta rays and tropical fish call the surrounding waters home, while a terrific range of bird species including colonies of Blue-footed Boobies and soaring frigate birds, frequent the island’s skies and shores. This very special island may be small, but has a lot of diversity with hikes to magnificent towering cliffs, spectacular sandy bays to explore by kayak or paddle board, amazing lava rock formations, and rock art left by the now-extinct Guaycura and Pericu Indians. There’s even an endemic ring-tailed cat, the babisuri, and the black jackrabbit. It’s a remarkable place to explore and perfect to include on your visit to Baja.
