Most jet straight to raucous Cabo when they come to Baja. I am much happier in mellow La Paz.
From Mazatlan I caught the ferry.
The (expensive) trip was supposed to take 14-16 hours but it was closer to 22 hours for me. I watched 5 family movies. Have you seen Freaky Friday?
Last millennium I stayed at Pension California. They haven’t updated it since. El Cheapo = US$15 / night.
Every morning I waltzed down to Exquisito for excellent cofee & free wireless internet. I was “working” — doing a website for a client.
La Paz (the Peace) is one of the best liked cities (165,000) in Mexico. The main entertainment is strolling the waterfront Malecón.
Most of my photos are — as usual — statues.
I like this statue best. About 1/3 the entire world population of sea mammals live in the waters of Baja.
I bussed out to Tecolote beach.
From here you COULD paddle 4.5 miles to the island in the distance. I thought that was a bit dangerous. So instead of renting a kayak, I signed on with a guided kayak tour.
