Sur, and its location on the 28th parallel makes it
the ideal rest spot for North and South-bound peninsula
travellers. Offering small-town Baja charm, the town
gives both a cordial welcome and a warm good bye to
visitors of all kinds.
Located in the great reserve
of the Vizcaíno Biosphere, Guerrero Negro is
particularly attractive to ecotourists. Hundreds of
wildlife enthusiasts arrive from the months of January
to March to observe the gray whales in the nearby waters
of Laguna Ojo de Liebre, where they mate and give birth.
Another attraction is the estuaries and swamps that
are home to various species of birds such as the white
pelican, the red-tailed hawk, the gray and white heron,
curlew jack, the royal eagle and the fish eagle.
Other sites of interest include
the salt mines (they can be visited only with authorization
of the Export Salt Company), the cave paintings of the
Sierra de San Francisquito, the Jesuit missionsand the
nearby islands and bays. The local travel agents are
a valuable resource, offering many well-planned tours.
Due to the sensitive natural environment of Guerrero
Negro and the vastness of the area, it is recommended
that you only take tours with expert guides .
