5 San Jose Del Cabo – La Paz After leaving our car at the San Diego airport, we took the flight to San Jose del Cabo (Mexican side of Baja California) – (ca. 2 hs). We collected our new car and drove to La Paz.
On the way to La Paz, we stopped in Todos Santos, a little town by the coast, also famous for the Hotel California (the Eagles’ song and album from 1977). The beaches around Todos Santos are also beautiful.
6 La Paz – Isla Espiritu Santo We decided to take one of the many “half day tour” to the island of Espiritu Santo (1 hour boat from la Paz). This is a small paradise with 9 amazing white sand beaches. We saw many sea lions and whale sharks just so close that could almost touch. See pics!! It was amazing!
