Whale watchers, Whale watchers! That is the chant that we were awakened to over the last several days in San Ignacio lagoon in Baja, Mexico. If you’ve never heard of this place, don’t feel bad – it is about half way down the Baja Pennisula and is in one of the least populated areas of Mexico. Why should you hear of it and why is it important? It is the mating, nursing, and child rearing capital of the Grey Whale community where every year, hundreds of Grey Whales turn up to spend their “spring vacation”.

It is a desolate area but a magical place – I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a unique experience.
