I’m still in awe of all the natural wonders Mexico holds. When I was invited to visit La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur, and was told that we’d be visiting la Isla Espíritu Santos y was definitely excited, but had no idea the beauty that awaited me.
I, along with the group of travel writers I was traveling with, was taken aboard a motor boat run by Fun Baja to explore the Sea of Cortez. Our guide was Juan Beltrán and we were extremely lucky to have him. He embodies the happy and free spirit of the area and his pride for the place he calls home is palpable.
Instead of telling you about our magical day at Isla Espíritu Santos and swimming with the sea lions, I’ll let you watch this video that I took where you will see for yourself how breathtaking this place is and also get to meet Juan Beltrán, Fun Baja tour guide.
And now you know why I’m planning on going back during whale watching season with my daughter and my husband. I felt so guilty they didn’t experience this with me!
Special thanks to La Paz tourism board and Fun Baja Adventures for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Oh La Paz looks beautiful! I am from Southern California and have been to Baja Mexico many times, yet have never been to La Paz. Now I will definitely be sure to make my next Mexico trip a trip to La Paz.
I hope you do, Christine. Super easy to get there with the new LAX-La Paz Aeromexico flight and the time spent there is like a time warp into paradise. The city itself is so peaceful and beautiful too!
