Release of the Los Cabo Sea turtles
Each and every summer, starting near or in June, the beaches of southern Baja are home to one of the most amazing moments on the Sea of Cortez. Several different species of Cabo Sea turtles return ashore to dig out their nests. Then, in a blink of an eye, thousands of their younglings are born. After that, they will make their way across the white sand to begin their life at sea.
Starting in the year 2000, the city council of Los Cabos has been operating a sea turtle conservation program through the ‘’Tortuguero Camp.’’ It started out by protecting seven miles of coastline for the turtles to nest safely. Now, it covers 60 miles of beaches! Of course, the goal is to cover the 110 miles that the Municipality has of beaches in the future. Today, the beaches of Los Cabos are considered of most importance in all of Mexico.
Los Cabos Hot Springs
Los Cabos has some hidden gems when it comes to natural thermal springs that bubble up from the deep. Locals have known about the Los Cabos hot springs for many years. In the early 1900s, a large spring was discovered in East Cape on a ranch in the village of Buena Vista south of Los Barriles. This is just a half-hour drive north from San José del Cabo! It was 1940 when one of the Governors of the Southern Territory in Baja bought a ranch to build a large hacienda overlooking the Sea of Cortez. He knew about the thermal spring nearby and piped this water into his home, creating his own private spa. The rest is history!
Come watch some of the largest creatures on Earth in their natural habitat. The Sea of Cortez has been a prime birthing spot for Humpback whales for centuries. First, the whales feed and grow in the cold waters of the Arctic sea during the summer. Then, they make their way down to Baja California to mate and nurse their young. In the spring, the whales head north once again, now with their brood. But, it’s before they leave when they offer the unique experience to see these majestic animals in their natural habitat.
