There are more than 60 Natural Protected Areas and National Parks in Mexico, where tourists find rich and beautiful ecosystems with many different species of flora and fauna. Here are five of the best examples that nature lovers should visit.
This national park, located in Los Cabos, has the highest diversity of species living in mangroves and seagrasses in the country. It has been considered World Heritage since 2005 by the incredible ecosystem that lives in its ocean and land. On its shores, ecotourism and sports activities are carried out, as well as tourism for the appreciation of species, including sharks, rays, and whales, among many others.
The most popular activities are boat tours, scuba diving, and snorkeling, in which tourists admire the biodiversity of more than 300 species of fish. In addition, Cabo Pulmo has extensive beach areas that are ideal for families to have fun with fun sports games.
This splendid destination, located in Loreto, a city in the state of Baja California Sur, has five beautiful islands full of biodiversity, among which the impressive blue whale stands out, humpback whales, orcas, dolphins, sea lions, and a large number of birds.
This World Heritage site combines an incredible desert landscape with the ocean. Still, it maintains an average temperature of 73 degrees which makes it ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling, as well as sport fishing, hiking, and camping.
The biodiversity of plants and species is very abundant since it combines species from the semi-desert plain with those from the coast, including various cactus species. The animals in this extraordinary ecosystem are jaguars, black lizards, manatees, turtles, river otters, red guacamayas (macaws), and pink dolphins, to name a few.
