In 1980, Jacques Cousteau visited the Sea of Cortez in Baja California Sur, Mexico, and deemed it the largest aquarium in the world. We recently took a trip to Loreto, Baja California Sur, to explore the islands in the Sea of Cortez and get up close and personal with the inhabitants of this natural aquarium. We then followed guide Roberto Salazar of Wild Loreto up the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range to Mission San Javier, the second oldest mission in Baja, to learn more about the history of this town and the effort to carry on its legacy.
