A few days ago I was invited to a dinner in Los Angeles where I was introduced by way of photographs to the beautiful city of La Paz, Baja California Sur.
Located on the Sea of Cortez,”The World’s Aquarium,” as Jacques Cousteau referred to it, it is considered one of the five largest marine ecosystems for productivity and biological diversity in the world.
I saw pictures of the blue waters, marine life, mountains, and the town, and it looks like paradise! It’s the kind of place my family would enjoy so much!
I mention this because just a few days after, I happened to be exploring the Monterey Aquarium at another, unrelated event. It’s a wonderful place to take the kids in case you are visiting or live near Monterey/Salinas, CA.
I saw a sign there that read, “¡Viva Baja! Life on the Edge opens March 19th.” Since I had just been to the dinner in LA, which piqued my interest in Baja, I was very interested to see this new exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. At first I was disappointed the exhibition wasn’t open yet, because I really wanted to see it; but, fortunately, I got a chance at a behind-the-scenes, sneak peek of it anyway.
The exhibition was still under construction, but I could see the extraordinary detail the Aquarium was putting into it, including both bilingual written information and bilingual videos, as well as lots of interactive features for kids and adults. Here are a few pictures. Enjoy!
Remember, the exhibition opens Saturday, March 19th, 2016. For more information, tickets and times, please visit the Monterey Aquarium website. For more information about La Paz, BCS México, visit GoLaPaz.com.
