There are hardly enough words to describe how phenomenal this trip was. I've been to Baja numerous times throughout my life but never on a trip like this. My family always told stories of Guererro Negro and whale watching from the shore the..re, but I'm the first to get to go out on Ojo de Liebre and see them up close. In just an hour we saw nearly 50 whales and their calves, and even a few mating from afar! And we didn't just see whales but also dolphins who swam right up to our boat, sea lions, falcons, and numerous other birds on our way back to the dock.
While Ojo de Liebre was the highlight of our trip, every day was spectacular. Ensenada was gorgeous and fascinating to tour, especially with our tour guide Fernando providing so much information about the sites and history. The drive to Guerrero Negro was extensive, but we got to see the stunning landscape that makes up Baja from the giant cacti to the massive plateaus and valleys.
Besides the whales, LA Cetto was probably my favorite part of the trip. I've never been a huge fan of wine, but this place and the tasting have fully converted me. The tour wasn't long at all and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. Took back 2 premium bottles that my LA Cetto guide recommended.
I got lucky and had my hotel rooms to myself and they were great. The one in San Quintin was by far my favorite, located right on the bay with a balcony for me to relax on. All the staff and guests were a delight. If you're not feeling too tired, get up early for sunset. You won't want to miss the gorgeous colors as you walk on the beach!
And the food was to die for! Fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, caught right that day and delectable! I've had Mexican food my whole life, but every restaurant surprised me with a new dish and taste. It's a food lover's must-taste. Read full review
