Baja Mexico

Wet, Wild And Woolly
Unbelievable Encounters In Baja And Beyond!

You may not believe it, but it's true. There is a place only 22 miles from Los Angeles with almost as many buffalo as automobiles. There is a hidden cave on the Gold Coast that spouts water 80 feet into the air. And yes, there is a way to feel like a new you in less than a week. Hard to imagine? Take a 4-night Baja Mexico cruise vacation and we'll make you a believer.

Your transformation begins aboard Monarch of the Seas in Los Angeles. From there, you'll stop in San Diego, CA and then sail straight to beautiful Santa Catalina Island.

Not your ordinary island, three-quarters of Catalina is undeveloped. But the surrounding waters of this Mediterranean-esque island are generously populated. Snorkel, five, or hop in a semisubmersible. However you choose to do it, get in the water. There's a colourful case of characters to spot. Giant purple sea urchins, black-eyed gobies, bright yellow garibaldi, and the list goes on and on.

Prefer dry land? Take a Catalina Inland Motor Tour. The island's heartland is a 42,000-acre nature preserve, overflowing with wildlife and flora. And no, you haven't been sitting in the sun too long. Those are actual buffalo roaming the valleys. Brought to Catalina in 1924 for the filming of "The Vanishing American", a herd of about 200 happily inhabit the island today.

From Catalina you'll sail on to Ensenada, Mexico. With its rugged mountains and beautiful soft-sand beaches, you'll have an array of activities to choose from. But if you're feeling extra curious, tour the countryside and uncover the buzz about bajacaliforniano wine. It just so happens that this region produces a number of world-class wintages. So, pay homage to a few vineyards and taste 'til your heart's content. And while you're there, stop by the famous La Bufadora, the world's second-highest marine geyser. With its spouting sprays and tremendous sounds, it's certainly something to experience.

The wonders of a Baja cruise vacation are so amazing you'll want more than a second glance. You'll want a second trip.
