Due to it's rich flora and fauna, and it's importance as an eco-tourism destination, Espíritu Santo Island is a protected area and was declared part of a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1995. This beautiful island is located in the sea of Cortez a few miles off the coast of La Paz, in the state of Baja California Sur, which is two hours north of Cabo. It is separated from Partida Island by a narrow canal. The island and the surrounding crystal-clear waters are home to sea lions, turtles, manta rays, dolphins, sharks, birds and even whales.
