Trip Report: Monica’s Family Road Trip in Baja

When her daughters’ spring break came around this year, DBTC staffer, Monica Garcia, took the family down to Baja for a six-day, fun-filled family road trip to see the gray whales. Here are some of the highlights:

DAY 1: “We first stopped in El Rosario. We stayed at the Baja Cactus and ate at the famous “Mama Espinozas.” The food was great!”

DAY 2: ”Next stop was the San Ignacio Springs Bed & Breakfast. We did a little kayaking on the river. The sunset was gorgeous!”

DAY 3: ”Off to the San Ignacio lagoon for our first day of whale watching. The girls were nervous at first but once they touched the first whale, that was it – they fell in love and couldn’t wait to do it again the next morning.”

DAY 4: “This was our best day of whale watching. We played with at least eight whales that morning and at one point we had four whales surrounding our boat (two mamas and two babies). That evening we went to Cuarenta to see the salt flats. It was incredible! It looked like snow but without the cold.”

DAY 5: “We spent our last night at Mision Santa Maria in San Quintin. We took the opportunity to visit the famous Old Mill, making our last day a fun one before our drive back to the U.S. in the morning.”

DAY 6: “Back to the U.S. through the Tijuana border crossing. We’re already planning our next Baja escape!”
