Just returned from 4 nights in La Paz. Happy to be back to some norcal cool weather as the heat there was tough on my wife. All in all a terrific place to visit, just stay in or near the water.
We enjoyed a trip to Espiritu Santo. We were out about 4 hours and the snorkeling was awesome. Plus... lobos marinos... or sea lions with 3 week old pups. Epic day and the best ceviche I had while I was there.
Went to Balandra on the eco baja bus one afternoon. At the bus stop at the beach you can get snacks, rent kayaks, umbrellas. Walk to the more secluded beach around the corner and it has a quieter vibe. Lots of folks there on a Saturday afternoon.
Spent a day at La Concha with the day pass. This is the 'lounge by the pool drink beer walk in the sand get lunch' sort of resort vibe we were looking for. Very relaxing for a day.
Loved going to Harkers each night for a drink and sunset. Found a great breakfast spot called Deli just up the alley from the La Paz sign on the malecon. Friendly and good service. Breakfast every morning. Afternoon coffee at Doce Cuarenta and you are set.
Can't wait to go back for the whale sharks when they're in season
