Secrets Marquis Los Cabos: Whale Watching

Are you planning a trip to Secrets Marquis Los Cabos?  For an exciting day trip, consider whale watching.  The area just off the coast is home to one of the world’s greatest creatures– the Humpback Whale.  The deep, warm Pacific Ocean is perfect for these gorgeous mammals to breed and Cabo has become one of the best whale watching places on the coast.

whale-watching

January through March is the best time to plan a whale watching adventure in this area.  During these few months, the Humpback Whale migration to Mexico leads hundreds of whales to the warm waters where they breed and give birth.  This means you could possibly see mother whales with her calves.  In addition to whale watching, you will also have a good chance of seeing dolphins, sea turtles, stingrays and other sea creatures.  These are always considered a “bonus” and never a given but are definitely a great perk to the trip when spotted!

Whale watching season is winding down — make sure you visit soon for a chance to see these magnificent creatures!

Beach Thursday: Featuring the Beaches of Secrets Resorts

The Caribbean is known for gorgeous beaches with pristine waters, miles of stretching sand, and vibrant and unique sea life.  Across the Caribbean, there are several exquisite variations of these three things:  Do you prefer dark blue seas or crystal-clear water; naturally pure white sand or crumbles of coral to pick through; underwater trails or the world’s second largest barrier reef?

All of these wondrous things are available across the Caribbean, and today we’ll take you through some of Secrets Resorts beaches’ secret treasures.

Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun

This resort, in the middle of Mexico’s Playa Del Carmen beach, boasts bright blue ocean that appears clear upon closer inspection – which is a good thing considering the world’s second largest barrier reef is right offshore.  You can walk the beach through fluffy pure-white sand, or relax under the grass umbrellas lining the resort’s private beach area.  It is truly the perfect place for travelers who want never-ending relaxation.

Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay

Montego Bay is home to the top-rated beaches in Jamaica—with very good reason.  Montego Bay beaches have beautiful smooth sand, calm crystal blue waters and lush greenery.  The Secrets Resort is situated on a small peninsula, and has private beaches stretching along the entire front.  Around back, forest stretches right to the water’s edge, a truly stunning sight to be seen from one of the resort’s catamarans.

Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana

 Punta Cana is on the easternmost point of the Dominican Republic, where the Caribbean and Atlantic oceans meet.  At Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana, this sure seems like having the best of both worlds—one glance toward the ocean reveals water marbled with every shade of turquoise. The resort’s beautiful pale sand is dotted with palm trees, so you have the choice of sun or shade anytime.  The surf calmly laps at the shore, so whether you are lounging under a palm tree or in a grass roofed cabana, the beach has the soundtrack of pure peace and relaxation.

Secrets Marquis Los Cabos

At Secrets Marquis Los Cabos, visitors experience the fusion of a Caribbean beach with the desert of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula.  Barren mountains roll all the way up to the resort, where there is a stretch of sandy beach before the expanse of the deep cerulean Pacific Ocean.  The water looks endless, with the exception of water-formed boulders jutting out of the shallows on the far side of the beach.  The natural beauty is utterly breathtaking.
