Balandra is a beautiful, quiet beach, with crystal clear waters, located a few kilometers from La Paz, in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Baja California Sur is a semi-desert climate rich in exotic flora and fauna, particularly marine life (much of which is in danger of extinction and is protected by Mexican law). Due to its remoteness, it abounds in semi-virgin beaches, where are perfect to get completely get away from the noise of the modern world. Balandra is just one example of these beautiful beaches, and you can relax in its transparent waters surrounded by white sands and great swimming weather all year round. This beach is a small bay with calm waters, surrounded by red rock hills. From the beach, you can glimpse the different tones of the sea, that range from light green to turquoise blue. No matter how far you swim, the floor is always visible as the water is crystal clear here. If you're lucky, you can see low tide, where you can walk up to 500 meters in what would usually be offshore. There are uniquely shaped rock formations, such as the famous conglomerate rock mushroom, a great club balanced on a slender neck of rock. Tourism in Balandra is almost nil, since there is no service except for some palm palapas, at their own initiative, so don't forget to take water and something to eat. It is rumored that they will soon build a hotel there, so visit now! There is nothing more beautiful than the natural. Balandras is a place that truly captivates you. I went there yesterday for the first time and I will definitely go again before the end of the trip. To get to Balandra Beach, take a plane to the city of La Paz, Mexico. Once there, you can rent a car at 60 USD a day, and it's just a 20 minute drive from La Paz towards Pichilingue, the main seaport of the city. Or you can take a 23 peso (1.5 USD) from the tourist bus terminal located on the boardwalk of the city. These leave every hour beginning at 8am. To return, take the bus from where you left between 2.30 and 5.30 pm. Don't miss this beautiful beach!
Los Cabos, Mexico is exactly at the end of the Baja California peninsula in the country's northwest. It's full of beautiful landscapes and is surrounded by the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. It has wonderful hotels, like the Westin Regina. During January and February, you can see migrating whales and dolphins pass by. Exactly at the tip is the famous Arch, to which we made several trips either to watch the sunrise or the sunset. The middle of the arch is called Lover's Beach, and the surrounding rock formations all have different names according to their shape. It has a variety of restaurants. I especially recommend trying the shrimp taco. It's cheap and typical of the region.
Apart from its beauty and great nightlife, Los Cabos offers natural beauty as "The window of the Pacific" or the world famous "Arco", just next to the love beach. It's an ideal spot for a day where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean collide. Take a snorkeling tour or an interesting boat trip to see sea lions and gray whales (depending on the time of year), you can't miss this area of Los Cabos. Bring dollars!
Todos Santos is a Mexican village situated in near La Paz which has several characteristics that make it a very popular destination, despite its size. One of them is that the Tropic of Cancer crosses through here, another is that the famous "Hotel California" from the Eagles song is located here (or at least that is what the locals claim). The waves make this place perfect for surfing (the beach is about 2 kms from the town).
Although it is in a desert, it is an oasis that can grow mango, papaya and avocado crops.
We began the walk in La Paz, we took a panga, all very organized, payed the fee in order to visit the "protected zone" with all the necessary safety standards. We traveled around the whole archipelago, made a stop at the beach Candlestick, where we ate a delicious ceviche that our guides carried for us. We snorkeled with sea lions and saw all kinds of birds and fish of many different colors. It was an unforgettable experience.
Enjoy the peace of the pier and sunsets. Here you will find the most spectacular sunsets, the friendliest people and the security of a quiet town where you can still walk at night without fear of being assaulted, I want to share beautiful images taken from the Boardwalk to the city of La Paz, Avenue Bella coastal state capital of Baja California Sur Mexico. Every day of the year I will find a reason to walk down this avenue, from admiring the most spectacular sunsets, meeting friendly people who enjoy life, to wander in total relaxation in a very safe environment.
Great place to rest. The service of its staff, first class. Beaches very clean. Sea is transparent. The arc tour of Los Cabos is worth a visit. It has been a while since I´ve stayed in such a calm and safe place in Mexico.
That day I remember there was the carnival of La Paz taking place, so I decided to go before it left town, because I never miss the carnival. It was on the Shore Road and it was getting dark so I went to the beach to walk when I realized it was a beautiful afternoon and the sun looked perfect, so I took out my camera and from now on that memory will always be captured in this photo.
so 3 cars from here, Monterrey new Leon where I'm from, went racing. La Paz is a good few hours by road. Here are some photographs of the city of Topolobampo Sinaloa, which is where we had to get a ferry to cross over to the city of La Paz. Photos of the race, the ferry, the hotel and great views. I hope you enjoy them. Take care. Oh! You must visit Mexico, especially the lower California peninsula, it is very nice.
A small, quiet, picturesque little village where if you grew up there it's impossible to stop going back to visit. It's now a little hideaway where you can enjoy the birds, swim in the river, enjoy the panela, and the interesting mummy.
Close to the island there is a Holy Spirit lobera where you can swim and enjoy these fantastic animals, the wolves of the sea. In addition to enjoying the spectacular scenery, there is a crystal clear sea.
