A short boat ride from La Paz, Mexico takes traveler Brandon to a world of interesting rock formations, an abundance of marine wildlife, and an afternoon snorkeling with the sea lions. Special thanks to Espiritu & Baja Tours and Jose Luis for a fun, educational tour.
La Fonda restaurant in La Paz offers traditional Mexican food at reasonable prices, and the owner is happy to explain any of the dishes on the menu. Traveler Brandon tries shoemaker soup for breakfast.
This morning while hitchhiking into town, a guy named Mike picked us up. There was barely enough room for us in the back of his truck next to the kiteboarding gear. Kiteboarding is definitely the most popular sport in Los Barriles. Second to Hood River, this seems to be the place to be, if you like wind.
Since we’re not kiteboarders, how did we end up in the kiteboarding capital of Mexico, staying in a house just a short walk from the beach?
Craig and Holly Weaver, loyal Flying M customers, offered us their vacation rental, El Torote.

With art galleries, souvenir shopping, restaurants and Hotel California, the small town of Todos Santos offers a break from the crowds and commercialization of Cabo San Lucas in southern Baja California, Mexico.
The sign for Hotel Guluarte supermarket and laundry is visible from the bus station in Todos Santos. After a week in Cabo San Lucas, what traveler doesn’t have a backpack full of stinky clothes? The swimming pool looked murky yellow, but it did have one lounge chair, the perfect place to relax and read The Gringo Gazette while waiting for clean clothes.
Hotel Guluarte has the usual amenities that a traveler can get for $30. What a attracted traveler Brandon to this motel was the laundry facility.
This book is well worth the money. Rich with well-worded descriptions and beautiful photos, this zine will satisfy the reader who has either travel-curiosity or no idea what to make for dinner (which, of course, would be omelettes).”
