As more people are getting vaccinated, and number of cases are dropping, we are happy to announce that we already did a tour to Baja California and are excited about second semester in 2021: South Africa (August), Ecuador (September),  and Madagascar (October). and Chile-Argentina (November).

A proof of vaccination will be required to participate in any tours.

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

When the world opens up again, and it will, we will be ready to safely travel abroad.

Many other interesting plants grow in Baja:  Dudleya, Agave,  Fouquieria, Euphorbia, Beaucarnea,  etc. The scenery is spectacular, clear water, beaches, and of course, the visit to a few islands complete this magic trip! http://www.plantexpeditions.com/baja   Dates:   April 24th May 8th 2018 Mode: All inclusive, starts in San Diego, ends in Cabo.
