If you come to La Paz you have to go here. Enjoyed watching the sea lion colony and the baby seals were adorable!

We had lunch there after snorkeling in Espíritu Santo. It was peaceful and the bay was like a pool. There is a popular beach inside the bay with parked cars. We were taken by our boat guide to the right most beach.

You can't go wrong - even when it's stifling hot - it's simply stunning. The beaches and the wildlife abound and the area proves interesting for exploration. During summer snorkelling is like wading in soup....so you don't have to wear too much.

Our tour company for Sea Lions was The Cortez Club. Check out La Paz VIP Tours though. They were great for our whale shark tour.
