You must experience the Sea of...
Favorite thing: You must experience the Sea of Cortez on the eastern side of the Baja Peninsula. The water is very calm (when the wind is down) and north of La Paz, boats are very few and far between. Very seldom did we see other boats not in our party. We felt as if the Sea was ours alone! A trip to Baja is great by any kind of boat.
Fondest memory: My best memories are of seeing all the wildlife. A coyote greeted me one morning at our beach bano. During an evening swim, a sea lion poked his head up at us just a few yards away. We saw many whales and dolphins, including an encounter with a school of HUNDREDS of dolphins! We snorkeled with sea lions at Los Islotes and saw a wide variety of birds and fish across the entire trip.
Favorite thing: I really thought the food in La Paz was excellent. I did not have a bad meal during the entire week.
Fondest memory: I stayed at the La Concha which had a great restaurant, but every place had good food. I loved the shrimp cocktails, the fajias, the fish with garlic and butter, plus the flan. The Mexican breakfasts were really good too. Excellent refried beans. God this is making me hungry.

Favorite thing: IMMIGRATION >
Trevellers from US need a valid passport and a tourist card available at the border. Trevellers from other countries should check with a Mexican consulate or embassy. Basiccally, short stay for not longer than 72 hours needn't any tourist visa.
Favorite thing: Good fishing on both the gulf and Pacific side of Baja. We traveled in October, weather was very nice fishing was fair. Decent for dorado, sometimes tuna, more often known for moderate marlin and sailfish.
UDO - Unidentified Drying Objects
Favorite thing: While on the roof of my hotel enjoying the scenery I came across these little slug like objects drying in the sun. I have no idea what they are but I'm glad I didn't eat in the restaurant.
