Bahia Magdalena

Jan 19, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


It was in the early hours of the morning, heading south from Laguna San Ignacio, that our ship reached the calm waters of Bahia Magdalena. The first half of our day was exploratory. Hikers stopped to appreciate a variety of plants native to the region, and kayakers paddled along the shore and into a mangrove channel while beach walkers scanned the bay’s terrain for shells and other keepsakes. The afternoon was a relaxing one as our group walked along the dunes of Sand Dollar Beach.  At cocktail hour, we gathered to recount the day’s adventures on the sun deck while local musicians Coyotes de Magdalena performed as the evening sunset gave way to that night’s full moon.
