Baja California Sur

Nikki and I will post a slideshow once we've stopped arguing about which of the photos we're not going to post. Meanwhile, here's 5 we can agree on.

Los Paisos taqueria, in Cabo San Lucas. I think we had 2 beers and 4 tacos each and left the place stuffed and half drunk. Total bill was about 10 US dollars.

Kiwi is a restaurant practically on the beach in La Paz. Great margaritas and a lovely view of the sun going down over the harbor.

We took this boat to Espiritu Santo island, where we basically had the beach to ourselves and indulged in a bit of sea kayaking...

...which will wear you out.

Beautiful La Paz cathedral dates to 1861.

I reckon you did alright, at least you managed to convince Nikki to let you post a photo of her, which means that's the only photo you took of her that she likes. Well done!

Ian said...

There may be one or two more that sneak through...we'll see which photos are left standing at the end of the inevitable bruising fight.

Looks amazing! Someday I'll have to do a Mexico trip.

That is so cool that you had that beach to yourself! Was the sand really that white?

What was your favorite part of the trip? OH, and what hotel did you 2 stay in?

Jen said...

You 2 look great! [Nikki, don't worry, I really don't think Ian would post unflattering pictures of you for fear of death. I know the husband wouldn't. . .]

I've been to a few places in Mexico and the only place that I love is Cozumel. It was clean; however, Cabo is looking pretty good too. We have another vacation in June . . .

Ian said...

Yeah, the sand was pretty much that colour. It was very pretty. La Paz was my favourite part of the trip, lovely place. I wish we'd had more time in San Jose del Cabo though, that seemed like it would be great, but we got there at about 5pm and left for the airport at 10am the next day, so didn't get a lot of time to enjoy it.

We moved around a lot, we stayed in the Tesoro Resort in Cabo San Lucas for one night, I wouldn't recommend it. In La Paz we stayed two nights in Los Arcos, which was Excellent and then in San Jose del Cabo we stayed in the El Encanto Inn, which was also great.

I wouldn't go back to Cabo San Lucas in a hurry. "Taco Alley" was a lot of fun and we had a good time partying, but one night of it was about as much as I could take. The timeshare sellers are relentless on the marina and it gets old in a hurry. San Jose del Cabo is definitely worth a few nights though.

Alli said...

Hearing about all the relentless Timeshare people, etc, is one of the reasons I nixed the Mexico trip. I think when I do go, I want to head to Cozumel, but I need to get scuba certified first!!! I do hear Cozumel is great.

Ian said...

The rest of Baja was fantastic, even the rest of Cabo San Lucas away from the marina was good.

It looks like you guys had a nice and healthy week end... And you really want me to believe that? Come on, share these other pictures.

Ian said...

Yeah. I will. There are lots more involving cultural things and healthy excursions and no drunken pictures of Nikki and I leering at the camera.

I feel like you travel a lot. It's not fair. Knock it off.

Ian said...

I will, right after I get back from Christmas and New Year in the UK.
