This islet, that is also home to a small colony of California sea lions, is located off the northern-tip of Isla Cerralvo (AKA Jacques Cousteau Island) off the coast of La Paz in Baja California Sur, Mexico.

La Reina is suitable for snorkeling and scuba diving. Features include a shipwreck. a submarine canyon, and interesting rock formations that taper away into the depths.

As well as mantas and sea lions, you can also find various species of moray eels, colourful sea stars, and huge schools of fish.
