I recently went to do eight days of training at a mine near La Paz in Baja California Sur state, Mexico. If you ever get a chance to go there please do. It was a beautiful place. The temperature usually around 38 - 40 degrees and I drank beer and ate ceviche almost every damn day.
The client had me working evening shifts so I had almost every morning free to explore and take pictures. I took the bus to a couple of local beaches: Balandra and Tecolote. Balandra is a circular beach with a huge shallow bay. The water is only up to your waist at the deepest point. You can sit/stand out in the middle of the bay and watch the pelicans dive-bomb into the water around you. At Tecolote beach they've built it up so that there are restaurants, bars, jet ski rentals, and boat rides.
The one thing I did not take the time to do is visit the Isla Espíritu Santo. It's a big, uninhabited island just off the shore of the city. Maybe next time if I ever get back. ♦
