Whale Watching in Cabo San Lucas

Every year between December and April, Cabo San Lucas and the surrounding shoreline is host to hordes of tourists from all across the globe. This is the time when thrill seekers come to this popular destination for sensational entertainment, unlimited fun and unique adventures in the Mexican sun. Cabo San Lucas has always drawn a wide and varied array of people to its shores: retirees and snowbirds looking for a second home, lovebirds looking for romance and families and friend groups on a range of vacations all come here. Yet, without fail, it is the beach destination’s largest yearly visitors who draw the biggest crowds and most attention during their five month stay! All the way from the freezing arctic waters, pods of Humpback whales come to the Sea of Cortez for some warmth at this time of year.

A family treat in Cabo San Lucas

Those who’re enjoying a being in Cabo San Lucas at this time of year should really consider heading out on a whale watching excursion; it is one of the most memorable and rewarding activities of the year! When you see the astounding displays put on by these magnificent beasts it becomes abundantly clear that they, just like you, are thrilled to be in sunny Cabo San Lucas .

The locals in Cabo San Lucas have become so accustomed to the presence of these wonderful creatures that many have opened up tour companies which actually guarantee sightings. Such tours only accept smaller groups, however, so as to avoid overwhelming or panicking the whales. Few return disappointed. As well as these almost guaranteed sightings of humpbacks there are generally up to seven other species which could be seen in the area, including Fin, Sei, Gray, Minke, Blue, and Bryde whales.

The reason these great and gentle beasts come here is because the warm waters which surround the Baja California Peninsula are the perfect place in which to raise their young before they take the long journey north once more. If you watch closely when you see them you might see the mothers teaching their young survival skills. The Pacific s a very dangerous place fobyoung calves (or ebn weak adults) due to the sharks and Orcas that prey on them so this is an important training ground.

The migration of these beasts can take up to six months, one of the longest migrations of animal in the world, and so it makes sense that they take such joy in their respite in the Sea of Cortez. Trust us when we say that if you plan your trip to Cabo San Lucas in order to see these creatures you will not be disappointed.

The following is a brief list of some of the activities you might explore with your young children in Banderas Bay.

The Zoo

El Zoologico de Puerto Vallarta is about 30 minutes when traveling by car or taxi from Villa La Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta. It’s located in a mountainous jungle area between Mismaloya and Mismaloya beach, and it’s a great place for your young children to have lots of fun.

Water Parks

Two major water parks where toddlers can play are located in the Banderas Bay area, both of which are about 10 minutes drive from Villa La Estancia. The largest park is called Parque Aquatica, and it has a smaller pool area with shallow water that is perfect for toddlers. There are also smaller slides fit for them that they can use to make a splash in the smaller pools. The other park, Splash, is not expensive as Parque Aquatica, and it also has a pirate theme. The pirate ship has slides coming from it that are suitable for older children and adults. The beach area (manmade) is ideal for toddler play and a great location for parents to enjoy. Both parks have marine creatures like seals, dolphins, and sharks, so that is also something else to keep your toddler entertained.

Equestrian Bucerias

In Bucerias, a small town just 15 minutes from Nuevo Vallarta on Banderas Bay, is an educational farm community that teaches young children about animal life.
