Isla San Jose’s lowlands have a thick cardon cactus forest and many animals, as evident by the scat we found just above the beach from burros, sheep, and rabbits. The beach itself had many interesting items to examine and the water was clear and cool for swimming.

Isla San Francisco is distinguished by its massive salt flat in the middle of two pink and olive green striped rocky headlands. The salt flat has manmade trenches that capture water at high tide and allows for salt formation. This is then collected and used by a small community nearby.
