A PARADISE TO DISCOVER

Known for being one of the most beautiful bays in Mexico, it is protected by Isla Ángel de la Guarda, which, along with more than fifteen volcanic origin islands, makes the sea calm and peaceful.

Bahía de los Ángeles served as the port for supplying the Mission of San Francisco de Borja Ádac, located 37 km from the coast, and in the 19th century, silver deposits were found here, turning it into a mining town.

This small village has a pleasant Plaza de Armas with the traditional gazebo where you can interact with the locals.

Specifically, Isla Ángel de la Guarda is the largest of the entire archipelago. This island has no human settlements, but it is home to a variety of birds such as seagulls and pelicans, as well as a good number of reptiles.

It has rocky beaches to the south and fine white sandy beaches in the rest of the bay. The waves are gentle, with a regular slope, and the water is green-blue, contrasting with the desert landscapes and imposing mountains.

Its waters boast unique marine richness, as it features a combination of islands and underwater canyons that generate strong ocean currents.

Bahía de los Ángeles

One of the attractions of the area is the Nature and Culture Museum, where whale and mammoth bones are exhibited, along with various objects used by ancient miners, photographs, and illustrations of the Pai Pai aborigines. The museum is open daily from 9:00 to 12:00 and from 14:00 to 16:00 hrs, and closed during the months of August and September.

It offers hotels, restaurants, trailer parks, boat ramps, gas stations, grocery stores, and a medical clinic.

If you want to explore the history of the area, you can visit the Montivideo cave paintings, located just 22 km from the bay, and the Mission of San Borja, located on the banks of the Montevideo stream.

Kayak and Snorkel Trips

You can take kayak or "panga" rides to visit Isla Ángel de la Guarda and the other islands populated by birds and sea lions. Among the islands you can visit are Isla Coronado, Puerto Don Juan, and Playa la Mona.

It's impressive to see how the colors of the sea change from one island to another. In some islands, you can snorkel or scuba dive, but we always advise going with a guide, as they are places for experienced divers.

Puerto Don Juan Island

Isla Puerto Don Juan is characterized by its impressive mangroves and an estuary full of white clams, while Playa La Mona is a place for swimming, walking along the beach, and relaxing.

Other Islets

Other islets worth visiting are Los Gemelitos, which are home to hundreds of brown and blue-footed boobies, as well as cormorants, frigates, and seagulls.

Continuing with the exploration of nearby islands, you can visit Isla Piojo, which is a colony of brown pelicans, and Isla Raza, which is an authentic sanctuary for the brown gull, as it is home to 90% of the world's population of these birds.

Sea Lion Watching

For observing sea lions, there are two ideal spots: the beach of Isla La Ventana and the coasts of Isla Calavera, both within the San Lorenzo Archipelago to the south of the bay. La Ventana also houses hawk nests among its cliffs.

Observación de Ballenas

During the winter months, you will have the opportunity to observe humpback whales. And throughout the year, you can see playful bottlenose dolphins and several seals.

Swim with Whale Sharks

In addition, from May to November, you will have the wonderful opportunity to swim alongside whale sharks, a unique experience. On some occasions, you may even see them from the coast.

Hiking
