I haven’t stayed home for this long since I can remember. I’m enjoying my 32 little chicks that will grow up to be egg layers and plenty of gardening. While I’m still content with sheltering at home and a few modest road trips, I’ll admit I’m a bit stir-crazy and can’t help but dream about some of my favorite places. I find my mind circling around neighboring Baja, which can be an adventurous road trip from southern California (including a visit to Baja’s wine country) or a short flight away.
It’s an amazing peninsula, much of which is protected within National Parks and world-class biosphere reserves. It’s a place of towering mountain ranges, miles of deserted coastline and abundant wildlife. On our Baja trips, we paddle in blue transparent water, see whales up close, swim with whale sharks, frolic with sea lions, view a myriad of bird species and get to know the people of Baja, including our superb team of guides. While most of our trips are kayak-oriented, we also offer a hike deep into the Sierra San Francisco to see the jaw-dropping prehistoric mural rock art of Baja that rivals Lascaux.
We don’t know what the next months will bring but we are hopeful that by the fall of 2020 and early 2021, travel will be more feasible and attractive. This lines up perfectly with our Baja season, so we thought you might enjoy learning a little more about this fabled region. Watch our guide, Monica Sánchez, sharing her story of growing up in Mexico and discovering her love of nature. She also wrote this fun blog with her guacamole recipe.
Meet Monica, your Sea Kayak Adventures guide and naturalist in Baja California Sur!
I would like to share a recipe of one of the most traditional dishes in the Mexican-Baja foods.
We hope that you will also enjoy this videofeaturing some of the highlights of our Baja trips. For more inspiration, we have an impressive library of videos for you to enjoy!
Baja is so close, so replete with nature and filled with the stuff of dreams. We hope you find some future travel inspiration in your own currently cloistered life!
