WHALE-WATCHING

WHALE-WATCHING

When the sound of the conch shell breaks the quietude at Las Ventanas al Paraíso, guests are alerted that one of nature’s wonders – the annual migration of whales– is passing right by the resort. The yearly parade of whales gives guests at Las Ventanas guests two viewing opportunities: first in fall/winter when the whales swim from the cold north to the warm waters along the Baja Peninsula where their babies will be born, and again on their return trip in late winter/spring with babies in tow.

A special amenity, Minolta EZ 10x50 binoculars, enables guests to better enjoy the spectacular spectacle of whales swimming by directly in front of the resort. During the December through March whale season, the binoculars hang on wrought-iron stands along the resort’s sea wall. Meanwhile, the resort staff scans the water continuously in search of a huge body or tail breaking the horizon, and when they are spotted guests are alerted by the blowing of a pre-Hispanic wind instrument. The unique, alluring sound of the conch shell was long used for important communication among indigenous peoples, and Las Ventanas has adopted this ancient medium. At each place setting at the Sea Grill waterfront restaurant, a rolled-up notice tied with raffia explains what it means when the conch is blown.
