Sample Itinerary for La Paz, Mexico
Day 1: La Paz to Isla Partida
Ensenada Grande on Isla Partida welcomes you with gorgeous turquoise waters, sandy beaches and rocky cliff faces. Ramble through the creeks to explore the area and discover the waters by snorkelling along side the rocky shore.
Day 2: Ensenada Grande to San Evaristo
Just northwest of Isla Partida you will find Los Islotes. This small collection of islands is home to a colony of Californian sea lions – think Pier 39, but far less commercial – here, you can see the sea lions in a more natural habitat. Southwest of Los Islotes is the popular dive spot of El Bajito, where you can see a range of tropical fish. Sail to San Evaristo for the evening, and you can anchor at this well protected fishing village.
Day 3: San Evaristo to Isla San Francisco
The bay of Isla San Francisquito / Francisco makes another popular anchorage with red rock cliffs, crystal clear water and white sand beaches. There is space for many boats at anchor, and you can head to shore for a hike or lie in the sand, and cool off by snorkelling in the water or maybe a spot of fishing?
Day 4: Isla San Francisco to Isla San Jose
Spend the night anchored at Amortajada, on the southwestern tip of Isla San Jose. Explore the mangroves and lagoon in your dinghy or by kayak, and you can spot herons and white egrets either on land or flying through the air.
Day 5: Isla San Jose to Isla Espiritu
Santo Bahia San Gabriel on Isla Espiritu Santo is a stunning large bay and is linked to one of the most beautiful beaches on the western shore of the island by a trail through a small creek and this also leads to Playa Bonanza which is on the eastern shore of the island, so there is plenty of exploring for you to do both on foot and with your snorkel gear.
Day 6: Isla Espiritu Santo to Puerto Balandra
Puerto Balandra is a picture perfect anchorage, where you will find the famous mushroom rock, El Hongo. Here you can hike, kayak and snorkel to your heart’s content!
Day 7: Puerto Balandra to La Paz
Take a short sail back to La Paz for the inescapable end of your charter!
