I never realised how unique Baja California is until I went there for a visit with my boyfriend. The visit was perfectly organised and we enjoyed a lot in Baja California, and that is why I am here to tell you about our dream visit to Baja California that was a success. The dream became true when we were having our vocational tour in different parts of Baja California. It has all that is pleasing to both the eye and the body. From the ferries and boats, to horseback riding, nature and wildlife areas, beaches, boat tours and to the water sports among others. These are not the kind of attractions to miss in a lifetime.
We started our tour with the Horseback riding by All the Pretty Horses of Baja Rescue and Rides which is situated in Rosarito South, Baja. The money that they collect for their services is used to maintain the horses there in Baja and in helping the horses that are in need of some help. The owners are actually very interested in rescuing these horses by providing them with good health rather than making more money. They have single rides or group ride and we actually tried both when we were there because we wanted to have a unique experience of adventure. It was such a fun to have the horseback riding in this place. We had to do the booking for the ride a day earlier because they are on high demand as several people really love the horseback riding. My boyfriend and I had a great time with the lovely horses as we were riding. I had a wonderful time riding this particular sweet horse called Xena. It was great and even my boyfriend could not hide his happiness after having such a great fun. We even had to ride together at one point and it was just amazing. The riding experience however did not hinder us from enjoying other parts of Baja that we had never known about in our lives.
We decided to enjoy the water life after a great horseback riding on land so we moved to the Baja Ferries in La Paz Baja California. This is a very nice service that you cannot afford to miss when having a tour in Baja California. The ferries are very comfortable, well kept and they are also affordable. The seats were so comfortable and they recline well that I was even able to catch a snap there in the lounge when my boyfriend was busy taking pictures of the lovely blue waters and other ferries. The voyage was a bit long but we were able to have a great experience. The sunset looks marvellous from this place and very beautiful in the ferries. We actually drove from San Diego to Baja and then we crossed over on the ferry with the van that we had and that was so great. We were very glad that we took the ferry and actually got the experience that we wanted.
We moved to Baja Ecotours, the nature wildlife areas in San Ignacio lagoon. They provide a great trip of a lifetime. You can have a great experience with the whales. The staffs are also well versed with all that you need to experience here. We had so much fun in the boat with the whales dancing around with their young ones and we were able to touch them and enjoy playing around with them in the boat. There was even a mother whale that actually brought a baby whale to the boat so we can touch her little whale. That was so incredible and we loved such experience. These gray whales of San Ignacio Lagoon gave us the adventure that is worth repeating in life. We also had a good educational experience back in the camp with the slide shows to discuss the whales, coyotes, turtles and the bird population as well. The Campo Cortez was also very wonderful place to visit. It was very clean and well kept with very comfortable environment to be in. That was an experience of a lifetime.
We also went to the Baja Buggys in Cabo San Lucas and it was such a fun moving with the buggy. It is actually the safest off road fun ride that you cannot just miss to enjoy when you visit the Baja California. The full automatic extrail buggy is such a wonderful experience that I would love to have again in my life. It was such a great experience that my boyfriend and I had with the buggy. In fact we had our buggy’s axle getting snapped when we actually went over a jump but we were very glad that there were more buggies waiting around. We eventually took another one and continued with the fun without any problem again. It was however advisable for those who want to enjoy all that to have some health insurance because you never know what can happen to them any time while you are enjoying the fun.
We then took to the Espiritu and Baja Tours for a wonderful tour to the beaches. This is where you are able to swim with the sea lions. You can also enjoy snorkelling in the beautiful clear waters of the Cortes Sea on Espiritu Santo Island. We actually took around forty five minutes searching for this spectacular Island but when we got there, it was worth the search because we enjoyed several activities in the place. We did all the snorkelling with those playful sea lions. We also had a great sightseeing and enjoyed ourselves in the beautiful beaches of that particular place. These are not the kind of activities that you would want to miss in such a great trip. The guides that we had for this tour were quite super friendly and very knowledgeable. They could advise us on where and when to go to the magical places that we wanted to visit.
We could not miss to go to the Baja Blue Diver. This is where you are able to enjoy the Scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking, and even the gear rentals are also available. They also offer the best cultural lunch that is served deliciously after the tour. We went to the south to the Arbolitos cove which is a small but interesting cove located over the hills and terrain. We were helped by very nice guides who knew everything about the place and they guided us slowly making the whole trip very interesting. We also went on a cruise to Ensenada and we enjoyed the Baja blue diver. We are actually planning for our next visit to the place to enjoy it again.
We also had a great natural history trips and the tours with the Baja Discoveries and it was a very wonderful experience of a lifetime. This Baja Discovery is one of the leading ecotourism companies found within Baja California. They provided good services to us and the guides were so interesting, experienced, knowledgeable and very friendly. They helped to identify the best places and very interesting activities in this place. We enjoyed all sorts of activities like the gray whales watching at the San Ignacio Lagoon then we had to visit the cave paintings through a well organized trip. We also had to enjoy the sea kayaking, treks for birding as well as a custom tour that was arranged by the company. It was a very unique tour and everyone was happy. Even the guides felt very enthusiastic about it. A visit to Baja California is something that I will never forget in my whole life. It is the kind of trip that you want to have all the time. My boyfriend and I are currently planning to have another visit there so that we will be able to visit other stunning places that we never got the chance to visit.
