Gentle Giants with Scary Name
Shark attacks just don’t happen in Los Cabos, even if the area does host the largest shark – and fish – in the world: the whale shark. Despite its imposing size, whale sharks are among the most docile of all marine life.
The slow moving giants are a big attraction in the Sea of Cortez as divers and snorkelers can swim alongside them. Although they have up to 3,000 teeth, they are all less than 6 millimeters long and are not used to chew – they are filter feeders.
Out of Their Shells
A magical summer night stroll along the beach in front of Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos can be made even more special when you come upon nesting sea turtles. A variety of endangered species of sea turtles hatch on the shores of Los Cabos and make their way back to the sea.
If you are lucky enough to come upon one, enjoy the site, but don’t disturb or attempt to handle them. They know what they are doing!
A Whale of a Time
From November to April, a variety of whales – humpbacks, gray whales, blue whales, sperm whales, and even orcas – frolic in the waters at the tip of Baja California. The whales migrate each year from the north looking for the warmer waters off of Los Cabos and seem to celebrate with breaching to the delight of onlookers.
Although there are a variety of whale watching tours, you are just as likely to see them breaching and expelling water from their blowholes from resorts like Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos. Take in the sight of one of the largest and most intelligent creatures in the world. If they make a yearly trip to Los Cabos, you know its worth your time as well.
