Remember, there are three Isla Coronados in Baja; be sure to snorkel near the one in Bahía de los Ángeles. Brush up on your ichthyology—Bahía de los Ángeles is home to more than 500 species of fish, many of them spotted around Isla Coronado. See two varieties of dolphins and five whale species throughout the year in the aptly-named Canal de Ballenas (Whale Canal), just southeast of Isla Coronado. Make sure to stop at The Museo de Naturaleza y Cultura (Museum of Nature and Culture) in town. It's a small but fascinating museum with exhibits on the area's marine life, gold and silver mining, ranching, and indigenous people.

BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Many say the east side is best for divers, the west better for snorkelers.
  • Hefty mackerel and tuna (occasionally topping 12 pounds) pose a real challenge to fishermen, but catching one of these heavyweights is an honorable feat.
  • Seabirds, many near extinction, nest on the offshore rocks.
