Strange enough the Baja California, also known as Gulf of California is located in Mexico. Other names are Sea of Cortez and Vermillion Sea. If you ever dreamed of seeing gigantic manta rays, then this is a great place for you to experience this. Kayaking is a great experience on it's own but knowing that you can sail with these great animals below you will make it so much more special. There are many tours available which are specialised in kayaking. There is the option to go on your own or in a group where in both have their advantages for a great holiday experience. The scenery varies a lot depending on the location route you are willing to go to and also the sea creatures will differ per location keeping it interesting to visit for more than one day.
South America's heart is the Amazon River. This huge river passes Equador, Peru and Brazil, and side rivers are entering Columbia, Venezuela and Bolivia. One of the best ways to experience it is by kayak, where you can admire the river at your own pace while keeping an adventurous feel to it. A fun fact is that in 2007 a Slovenian athlete even swam the entire length in 66 days. We would not recommend it, but it's quite an undertaking. It's a beautiful river containing many animals, but also dangerous animals like piranhas and anacondas. But don't worry, not all animals here are dangerous, ever heard of the pink dolphin? It can be found here as well. The wildlife here is astonishing. Try getting the best information from your local travel agent on forehand so you can get the most out of your own Amazon River experience.
This beautiful bay surrounded by high mountains looking like a movie set of the blockbuster Avatar is ready for you to explore. Many traditional boats are sailing here for both recreational purposes as tourism and for the fishery industry. The beautiful waters are best to explore by kayak by yourself or in a group with a guide who can bring you to places not so familiar to tourists. It's worth visiting it during sunrise and sunset on a clear day. Combine your kayak trip with hiking and climbing one of these mountains for a breahtaking view.
