Los Cabos to gain a word heritage site at Archipelago Revillagigedo.

Date Published:

The Revillagigedo Archipelago, also known as The Revillagigedo Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, known for their unique ecosystem. Due to its ecological richness and extraordinary biodiversity the Archipalego  is to be declared a World Heritage Site.


Located 390 kilometers southwest of Los Cabos, the islands cover a total of 161.81 square kilometers. And from east to west they are San Benedict, Socorro, Roca Partida and Clarion.


The incredible variety of fauna, terrestrial and marine life attracts nature tourists from all over the world. The islands are especially popular with divers and San Benedicto is home to one of the most important colonies of giant mantas on the planet.


As a protected area with many endangered species the islands are not inhabited. Tourists tend to head to Cabo and make organized trips from there.

Being granted World Heritage Status now places the islands more firmly on the world’s ecological map.
