Where to find the best places for wildlife photography in Cabo San Lucas?

We all like to unplug and enjoy nature’s wonders, the best it has to offer, but oftentimes we end up going through the same tourist spots repeatedly. Then, all of a sudden, we don’t even notice, and all those plans for incredible shots of mammals, birds, and the like are thrown out the window just like that.

Well, dear reader, I am here to tell you that you do not need to worry about that no more, because today I will be showing you the 3 best places where you can get some amazing (and brag-worthy) photos of wondrous animals and unforgettable natural landscapes, all here at good old Cabo San Lucas.

1. The Amazing Bird Species and Bird Sanctuaries of Cabo San Lucas

With over 300 birds to its name (as stated by professional Ornithologists), Cabo San Lucas boasts a surprisingly large selection of avian species to gaze at and take pictures of. Coastal birds, freshwater birds, birds of the sierra, and desert birds, all huddled up for your eyes to bask in (and your social media feeds to share in).

Not only that but Cabo also counts with bird sanctuaries, such as San Jose Estero’s Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary, a place where many of the species recorded in Cabo cohabitate, along with many more wonderful animals.

More than 100 Mammals live on the coasts of the Baja Peninsula, two dozen of which are endemic and found nowhere else in all of Mexico. In fact, many of these species are endangered and protected, giving birth to incredible Wildlife Reserves where you can get the privilege of looking at these beautiful creatures up close and taking a memory of them with you, with an incredible picture or two.
