The Baja Peninsula is anchored between the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. Its isolated ecosystems range in climate from Mediterranean to desert, wetlands, to tropical forests. Mountains extend from the northwest to the southeast. It is cooler at the higher elevations and on the Pacific side, and warmer in the desert and on the Sea of Cortez side.
Global currents in the atmosphere create high-pressure, insulating this area from the low-pressure fronts usually associated with rain clouds. So, Baja has very little rainfall, the wettest months being December through April. The driest coastal area is the northwestern shore of the Sea of Cortez. And yet, one can see snow covering the peaks of the Sierra de San Pedro Martir in the winter time.
