10 Days - Baja California Peninsula, TIP to TOP
Jacques Cousteau named them "The Mexican Galapagos Island" and gave the oceans the title of "The largest living aquarium of the world" those expressions give us an idea of the diversity, uniqueness and beauty of this region, the early time explorers and missionaries named it "the other Mexico", it was a territory until 1972, here there is no agriculture, no cattle raising, no commercial fishing only tourism, it is like to live in an island, totally different to other parts of Mexico, come discover how people and wildlife had adapted to live in this environment.
We will see the three species of endemic land birds; Grey Thrasher is common throughout in desert scrub, as is the little Xantus's Hummingbird, although Belding's Yellowthroat is not widespread but is expected to be found in remnant marsh habitats. Birding opportunities promise
an array of seabirds, shorebirds, and land birds including Least Grebe, Neotropic Cormorant, both Brown and Blue-footed boobies, Magnificent Frigatebird, ten species of herons including Reddish Egret, White Ibis. We will make special efforts to see cetaceans and whale watching over boat trips, with the hope of encountering grey, humpback, long-fin pilot, blue and orca whales, not to mention enjoying sightings of whale-sharks, rays, sea-lions, as well as a couple of visits and get involved on the release of sea turtles. We will admire the beauty of unique cactus, agaves and other succulent plants, with breath-taking landscapes, sunrises and sunsets, framed by the ocean. Summarizing, we will experience "The Peninsula Indomitable" or "The Untamed Peninsula", just two descriptions of how explorers have described this remote place, an area attracting nature lovers by its fabulous natural values. you will be lead and receive personal attention by Experienced Biologist, and birders with large experience, certified and bilingual, this exciting tour, which promises to be both productive and enjoyable.
