During Whale Season (January-March):
3 hours of whale-watching in the breeding grounds of the Grey whales. Another breath-taking experience and one in which you are likely to actually pet the baby whales as their inquisitiveness brings them within arm’s-length of our motor skiff. Returning to the fishing village of Lopez Mateos we will enjoy a fresh seafood lunch before traveling back to La Paz and the Hotel Cathedral.
Outside of Whale Season:
Following a hearty breakfast we will meet our mountain bike guide and take a 30 minute drive south of La Paz into the low hills where a myriad of dirt roads and farm tracks through the Baja desert make the perfect playground for our Mexican mountain-biking Expedition. Views to the Sea of Cortez are stunning as is the great variety of Baja trees and cactus that provide a natural garden of weird and wonderful plant life. Besides the odd farm vehicle we are unlikely to see much in the way of traffic – perhaps a herd of goats or a stray cow will be our only obstructions. A support van means you can do as much or as little of the biking as you wish, but for the die-hards there is a gruelling 4 mile steep sand road to finish our 20 mile loop – most people hop in the comfort of the air-conditioned van at this point. Our ride is complimented with a superb pic-nic set out on a large granite slab that commands distant desert views over much of our ride. Return in the afternoon to Hotel cathedral.
