Life in La Paz is easy, days full of swimming with whale sharks and eating street tacos, nights filled with eating street tacos and good beer, and finally ending with melodic music drifting down to your bed through the open hatch boards. After the open roadstead anchorages of Western Baja and the wild and crazy lifestyle of Cabo San Lucas, La Paz is a welcome change of pace and a fantastic place to get settled into life in Baja for the cruising sailor.
We spent almost three weeks exploring the sights of La Paz. And to think when we arrived we told people we would be gone in one. In cruising, changing plans is a way of life, plans are formed and reformed as fluidly and as often as the waves strike our hulls. We met some of our closest cruising friends in La Paz. Some of whom we would spend the majority of our summer in the Sea of Cortez anchored next to in the same harbors.
