A great hike up and over the coastal hills down to the walls of the old port used to ship out sugar. The walls in the Port itself were built in the late 1800's. At one time there were 8 sugar mills loading their product here and sending it out to sea. They lasted until the area ran out of water in the 1950's. Hurricanes have ravaged the road but it is still hikable but a rocky scramble in some areas. Glad I finally got down and walked the ancient walls next to the beautiful little protected bay they were built in.

Beautiful beach to walk on with a little lagoon as well. There are some B&Bs on the other side of the lagoon. On the little road down you can stop and see Kaia about a horse ride on the beach as well. This one is a little bittersweet for me. I got wrapped up in a wave fishing about 10 yrs ago and it took them 6 1/2 hours stateside to put my leg and knee back together. Came very close to losing it. Beautiful baja day today...

Awesome walk along the boardwalk and through some shopping areas. We also took in the Whale Museum. This area in La Paz is very beautiful and they work very hard to keep it that way. Every time I have been here there have been many workers raking the sand, sweeping and repairing the sidewalks, etc. There are so many beautiful sculptures all along the water as well. We'll be back in a week!

Parked in the middle and walked both ends of the beach. This is an awesome beach near La Paz past the ferries to the mainland. The water is clear and clean. My wife really enjoys collecting shells on this one which explains our extremely slow pace.

This used to be just for the local fisherman... Just a small little group of fisherman holding on to the old ways of hand lining their fish to make a humble living. Now a good size tourist hotel stole some of their land to make another attraction... Nice little beach. I saw a small group of hikers doing a trail up the mountain that i'll do and post in a few days.

One of my favorite beaches in Baja that I've gone to on my trips over the last dozen years. Today was the 1st time in 6 years and my little secluded beach is no longer secluded so i'll post it... We saw about 15 people walking today and had never before seen more than 3. Most of the time we were completely alone. Everything changes.....

Awesome drive along the lower east cape of Baja from San Jose Del Cabo to La Ribera that I've done a couple of times. The 1st was with my brother and a good friend and more than a few beers and a few fishing poles with a few stops along the way. The 2nd time was in 2010 with my wife. She didn't have as much fun because the road is all dirt and road maintenance in Mexico is usually done "manana" and that can be a day, week or a year depending on who's talking... The highlight with my wife was when she saw some burros eating out of a roadside garbage can and told me to stop. When I did 2 burros tried to stick their heads in her window at the same time. One succeeded while I was about to die laughing as she was yelling "drive, drive,drive". The burro manged to get her sandwich out of her lap but missed the beer... The last time through they had built a lot of little beach shaded palapas along the water. The map is outdated and doesn't show a new marina at La Ribera as well even since I made the drive last...

Simply a beautiful area i almost lived in. The ocean here has so much life that the shells just stack up on the beaches. If you like to collect seashells this little walk is for you. We probably brought back 25 lbs from our different visits there. There are so many shells the city hires workers to shovel them off periodically to dispose of them. The water is very shallow, very warm and full of life. We walk in the water quite a bit and you see all kinds of fish swimming around you as you walk.

Gorgeous beach walk east of La Paz on a beautiful beach just around the corner from the waterway that leads into La Paz. There are a few restaurants on the beach and a little farther down a few palapas on the beach to get in and out of the sun. The water is beautiful. On the way out there is an awesome lagoon to swim in as well.
