Giant barrel cactus (Ferrocactus diguetti) on Isla Catalina, Sea of Cortez and the Baja Peninsula, Mexico.
The small island of Isla Catalina has the largest barrel cacti in the world and it is also home to the world’s only rattleless rattlesnake. I gorged myself on the succulent fruit of the barrel cactus that taste very much like kiwi fruit. The snorkelling around the island was excellent. There were some good places for fairly deep freediving that revealed many different species of fish.
