On Monday, we went to the beach at Tecolote. This is one of those things you really can only do if you have a car - it would probably be a $40 cab ride each way, which takes a bit of the fun out of a day at the beach, for me at least. It's a bit of a hairy drive because of all of the construction going on around the new Costa Baja resort, but even with that, only takes about a half hour.
What a beautiful beach! There are chairs and umbrellas set up that you can use if you buy some food and/or drinks (we had our own chairs and umbrella but opted for the ones that were set up - their umbrellas were much larger).
It looks right out at the bottom of Isla Espiritu Santu, which is a lovely view.
It was much, much cooler there than in La Paz. We swam, we ate, we drank, we lounged around. The people watching was fantastic. There were musicians - two brothers with a guitar and an accordian, who were wandering around performing and were quite good. All in all, it was a lovely day, and a great getaway from the heat when we don't want to or can't take the boat out to the islands. A+++, would beach again.
We are surviving the winter - hah!
