Whale watching!

Whale watching!

Whale watching season is at its best. Last week, while I was showing Hilton Los Cabos to a travel writer, I was sharing with him about the whales and that sometimes you could actually see them in front of the hotel, or from your room or by the pool or at one of the terraces. I was just telling him that and suddenly we saw a whale water spout and then three more, right there before our eyes, we stopped for a while to look at them and enjoyed the moment. We were so fortunate to observe this.

I also recalled that last year, I did a whale watching tour with a friend, it was almost the end of the season and we thought we were not going to see at all, unexpectedly we saw a whale and her calf next to us, watched them for a while and then we kept moving as the captain received a message saying that another one was close from where we were and when we got to see it, it was coming in and out and then it was breaching once, and once again, I counted 35 times and decided not to count them anymore and kept watching and enjoying, it seemed that the whale was so happy and wanted us to be happy as well.

These are the kind of moments that enlighten our lives and help us admire nature and in my case, the place I live and that sometimes I do not enjoy as much as I should.

Whale watching season starts around December and ends by the beginning of April, although dates may vary as we totally depend on Mother Nature.

If you happen to come to Los Cabos during whale watching season, please give yourself the time to sit, relax and observe, you may see one or more whales and after having this wonderful experience you may feel renovated and happily start all over again!

Turtle season is here!

Turtle season is here!

Turtle Season is here and you can make it part of your stay in Los Cabos. Like a wedding we had that enjoy this fantastic opportunity!

 Every year from June until the end of October, we have some staff volunteering during night shift, patrolling 10 miles in order to seek for turtle nests, from 11pm to 7am or 8am in the morning. We set on the beach a farmyard where eggs are laid and after 45 to 60 days they hatched. For the 2012 season we collected 22937 eggs and released 16488 live babies to the sea, we average when we have the correct support in place anywhere from 1 to 14 nests per night and an average nest can have from 50 to 180 eggs in each nest.

 Did you know that?

  • All species of sea turtles are listed as threatened or endangered.
  • Sea Turtles are highly sensitive to the Earth’s magnetic field and use it to navigate.
  • The fact that most species return to nest at the locations in the same general area where they were born seems to indicate an imprint of that location’s magnetic features.
  • Sea Turtles can live between 50 to 80 years depending on the specie.
  • Sea Turtles can swim 27 Km/h to 35 Km/h.
  • Sea Turtles do not have teeth; instead they have sharp tips on the superior part of their mouth.

 How can you help?

  • Do not drive ATV’s or motorized vehicles on the beach.
  • Walk carefully on the beach during nesting season.
  • Do not touch or disturb Sea Turtle nests.
  • Report anyone damaging or disturbing nests.
  • Report any injured Sea Turtles.
  • Do not consume Sea Turtle meat or eggs.
  • Do not direct lights to baby Sea Turtles. They find their way to the Sea by finding the brightest horizon.
  • Volunteer

Please note that new laws are in place and now in order to protect the turtle, we cannot hold them unless we are certified to do that, however we still enjoy looking at them being released and at least we know that we have done our part in helping them getting to the beach. After that, nature does its job. We just hope we can see more coming the following years!
