Enjoy a short flight over the Sea of Cortez on Volaris to arrive in the land of La Paz, to a place of Peace. Get out there and thrill while in this port city during the celebration of Christmas! Take a local tour boat across the Sea of Cortez and visit the surrounding islands. December is a great month to visit as the temps are cooler so pack some long sleeves. Enjoy walking about this marina town, no car needed. Walk to ATM banks, coffee shops, Applebee’s and even shop at Sears. Our Uber guy Eduardo speaks perfect English and a ride to the mall is only 50 pesos. A short 1.5 hours flight from Guadalajara, which is actually less for us than the toll roads and gas to PV.

kayaking, diving, ATV thrilling, golf courses, sail boarding, zip lining or just walking the malecon and sampling the shops and cafes. It was a sleepy town, but like all other ports in Mexico, it is growing and becoming popular because it has everything that Cabo San Lucas or Cancun offers. Roundtrip airfare GDL to LaPaz is $80.00 USD. Use Hotels.com to book rooms and rack up points for a free stay. We favor Boutique hotels over all-inclusive places because they are much more quiet. We have stayed at Hotel HBlue in LaPaz several times. ADDRESS: Aquiles Serdán #2042 e/ A – Rosales e I. Allende – La Paz, BCS 23000 – Mexico – PHONE +52-612-123-2583.
My next reunion with my brother Ben will be in LaPaz. The extra expense of a flight and room in Loreto is too much, and besides we LOVE LaPaz. Loreto was the first Spanish colonial settlement of the Viceroy of New Spain on the Baja coast. The town was founded in 1697 by a Jesuit Order. The town served as the capital of the province of Las Californias from its founding until the capital of this Mexico province was moved to Monterey. In 1768, this Mexican province was annexed as Alta California and today we know it as Baja California. The city of Loreto is built on flat land and the average elevation is 33 ft above sea level. “La Giganta” is the prominent Mountain Range
The Sea of Cortez is beautiful and filled with sea life. We enjoyed 3 nights at the Loreto Bay Golf Resort. ADDRESS: Blvd Mision De Loreto s/n Col. Nopolo Loreto, BCS 23880 Mexico – +52-161-313-3010– This resort is just outside of the city limits of Loreto. ❤ We look forward to exploring this new area.
We were blessed to recently hook up with Mike’s family for his mom’s 86th birthday in October 2019. Mike and I practiced the Thriller moves for the 2016 Halloween fiesta in Ajijic. We represented the OLDEST dance group globally – it was a blast! Our 2018 San Francisco/Canada cruise. Fun Family Reunions
