Espiritu Santo Island Tour in the Sea of Cortez

Sea Lion Espiritu Santo Island La Paz Mexico

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.

Staying at Weaver Rentals in Los Barriles, Mexico

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?
