The archipelago of Espiritu Santo is one of the most magical places in Baja. Its landscapes are as beautiful as they are varied, and the amount of life that you can find here, over 600 species in flora and fauna, make it one of the most impressive places to visit in Baja California Sur.
For one, it is home to just over 40 species of birds, and one of the most memorable sights you’ll see in this place is the long stretch of mangroves that house thousands of frigate birds, amongst other species.
For a long time, this was in the first place of my favorite spots in my home state. Now it stands in second, beaten only by Sierra de La Laguna, but I’m a little biased towards the mountains, after all.
Espiritu Santo, just North of the city of La Paz, is one of those spots I highly recommend to anyone who wants to revel in the natural beauties that Baja California Sur has to offer.
