Sea of ​​Cortez

“The aquarium of the World”.

DISCOVER THE SEA OF CORTÉS

The Sea of ​​Cortez or the Gulf of California in Baja California Sur is full of life. It abounds in the earth, in the air and in the sea, so much, that it has intrigued explorers and adventurers from Francisco de Ulloa to John Steinbeck and Jacques Cousteau. It is estimated that nothing else in its waters there are more than six thousand species of animals cataloged and others so many still not cataloged.

On the beaches of Puerta Cortés, a luxury development in La Paz, Baja California, at the door of the Sea of ​​Cortez, the low tides allow you to enjoy a warm and welcoming sea.

When Spanish explorers navigated the Sea of ​​Cortez centuries ago, they first thought that Baja California was an island and that the sea, dyed by the sun and framed by reddish earth, was red: red, populated by beautiful organ cactus or cardones. The Cardón restaurant in La Paz, Baja California, honors with its name what these adventurers saw.

What do you feel when, with your feet buried in the sand, you observe the turquoise waters that almost do not move, while the breeze envelops you? Feel the life that unifies everything, from the smallest to the universe itself that manifests itself in this privileged place.

The richness of life and possibilities to discover it is exciting: from the peace of a bed, on a paddle board, in a kayak, during a trek through the trails of nature reserves or in underwater adventures, the Sea of ​​Cortez has infinite possibilities that our concierge can book before or during your stay at Puerta Cortés:

Beaches and Bays

On the coast, you have to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Balandra, El Tecolote, the Bay of the Dead and discover one of the most important Biosphere Reserves of Baja California, Sierra de la Laguna.

With more days to explore, you can sail or travel by land to Loreto or Puerto San Carlos in Magdalena Bay, an ideal site for sighting gray, humpback, pilot and killer whales.

Espiritu Santo Archipelago

Currently, the islands and waters of this generous sea are a World Heritage Site. The main one is Espiritu Santo Island, which is one of the best places to practice diving and snorkeling. Other ideal spots for these sports are:

• The Islets
• The bass
• Sunken ship and artificial reef Salvatierra
• Cerralvo Island
• Las Ánimas

The Sea of ​​Cortez is one of the most famous spots in the world to practice sport and responsible fishing. The Canal de Cerralvo, Punta El Mechudo and the coasts of Todos Santos are must-sees.
