Today is the final day in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. I am in town with a friend to go scuba diving. We did 11 dives in 5 days with The Cortez Club. It was a wonderful experience, and we made some great new friends! The best part, by far, was playing with the Sea Lions! Check out the video below!

La Paz is the capital city of the State of Baja California Sur, in Mexico. It is approximately a two hour car ride north of Cabo San Lucas. It is a beautiful city in a warm, dry climate. The people are extremely friendly and will go out of their way to help you in any way that they can.

We are styaing in the Costa Baja Resort and Spa located about 15 minutes north of La Paz by taxi, south of the port of Pichilinque.

Most of our dives were done close to Isla Espiritu Santo (Holy Spirit Island), and Isla Partida (Split Island). The boat rides out to the dive sites were fairly long, at about one to two hours each way, but the long rides were well worth it. The long rides gave us a chance to get to know the people we were diving with. We met wonderful people from Germany, France, Austria, and of course, Mexico and the United States. One of the divers that has been diving all over the world said that La Paz, Mexico her favorite place to dive on the entire planet. 

For this trip, I travelled using the Cross Border Xpress (CBX) Terminal at the Tijuana Airport. By flying out of Tijuana instead of San Diego, the airline ticket was about half price. By crossing at the CBX land crossing, rather than flying international, you are not required to carry proof of Covid-19 vaccination, nor do you have to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test within 3 days of returning to the United States. I found this method of travel to be very fast and convenient. The next time I travel in Mexico, I will be using the CBX Terminal at the Tijuana airport!
