Each year, Mexico becomes the host of one of the most fascinating migratory phenomena: the arrival of the gray whales.
After their 10,000 kilometers journey from the Bering Sea, the gray whales arrive during the winter to the warm waters of Mexico, along the Baja California Peninsula; a miracle of nature that can only be admired off these shores.
The director of Municipal Tourism of Puerto López Mateos, Miguel Cota Higuera, said that the festival begins on Friday, January 29 with a sports and artistic program on the beach, to continue on Saturday with several activities throughout the day, and at night with the coronation of Queen Adelaide I.
The Festival of the Gray Whale in Baja California Sur ends on Sunday, January 31st, with an artistic program and a gourmet dinner on the pier.
Festival attendees can enjoy the fireworks and folkloric dance shows; as well as other ecotouristic activities, such as fishing or horseback riding, and obviously, not forgetting the whale watching tours to learn more about these fascinating creatures that make such a fantastic journey every year.
