Baja California:

> The destination.

In North western Mexico, between  the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean, the Baja California is a peninsula as long as Italy and about half wide.

Still not very well known of French and European tourists, it possesses nevertheless an impressing potential for tourism and eco-tourism in a still virgin and protected nature.

The sea of Cortez, forming the Gulf of California north-west of Mexico, also possesses an exceptional wealth of its underwater fauna with no less than 891species, among which 90 are endemic.

Furthermore, the peninsula provides a habitat for 695 varieties of trees and plants, which is more than in any desert region of the planet.

Far from the mass tourism, this unique place, which about 244 islands recently classified-listed in the “UNESCO World Heritage”, was the object of a book entitled:

"Baja California - The Pearl of Mexico" published by Privat Editions. (France)
