Conservation Passports

Conservation Passport

The Mexican Comisión Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas (CONANP) governs the protected biospheres of Mexico and requires visitors who are in these areas for any recreational activities to purchase either a Biosphere Bracelet that is good for one day’s use, or an annual Conservation Passport, valid for one year.

Discover Baja can now process the annual Conservation Passports for DBTC members. The cost is the $371.91mn pesos and an additional US$10 processing fee. Please complete and return the Conservation Passport Application. Part of the fees that go to CONANP support conservation efforts and community development. There is an extra $10 fee if you are not a Discover Baja member.
