Extra excursions offered by BajaLife
BajaLife B & B offers several other tours. From swimming with whale sharks to the descent of sand dunes on board to the discovery of the largest natural aquarium in the world, there is something for everyone.
ISLA ESPIRITUS SANTOS
One of Baja California’s most impressive natural treasures! Includes snorkelling with sea lions!
This day-long excursion starts with a one-hour boat ride to Isla Espíritu Santo, an archipelago north of La Paz consisting of five small islands and one large main island.
With its stunning volcanic rock formations and deserted beaches, this UNESCO-protected biosphere reserve seems like a place from another world. Isla Espíritu is home to an astonishingly rich variety of birds and sea creatures. Around the island, you’re likely to spot rays, turtles, sharks and dolphins, as well as pelicans, herons and vultures—to name just a few.
You’ll also have a chance to snorkel near a colony of sea lions and meet these remarkable creatures up close! And, last but not least, you’ll get to eat the best ceviche in town on a pristine white-sand beach!
SWIMMING WITH WHALE SHARKS
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
La Paz is one of the few places where you can see whale sharks.
This extraordinary sea creature—the largest living fish in the world—can reach lengths of 50 feet or more. With its distinctive white spots and dorsal fins, it can’t be missed! On this excursion you’ll have a chance to swim right beside a whale shark. And don’t worry: they don’t pose any danger to humans. In fact, they might even let you catch a ride
TODOS SANTOS AND CERRITOS SURF BEACH
Some 80 km from La Paz lies the charming village of Todos Santos, a tiny oasis in the midst of the stark desert landscape.
As you explore its cobblestone streets, colonial architecture, artisan shops and organic food offerings, you’ll soon see why Todos Santos has been designated a pueblo mágico .I
In the afternoon, we’ll make our way to Los Cerritos, a beautiful white sand beach with some of the best surfing on the Baja.
SANBORDING IN THE DESERT
Sandboarding is unique and accessible to everyone!
If you are a snowboard fan or would like to try something different, then come slide on the hot sand of the Baja.
We offer a 4h of sandboarding excursion, including transportation, initiation, board rental and drinks.
Emmanuel will make you discover the dunes of La Paz and from the top of these you will have a magnificent view of the desert! And a little extra, just on the other side, a deserted beach to refresh you.
HORSE BACK RIDING RANCHO STYLE
Get a taste of the ranchero lifestyle !
About 40 from La Paz is Rancho El Cajón, a Mexican ranch offering horse-back riding. Whether you’re an experienced rider or a first-timer, the guides will find the perfect horse and trail for you. From a relaxing ride along the beach to a more challenging excursion through the mountains, this is an experience not to be missed!
STREET ART TOUR
This is a walk of 1h 30 in the center of La Paz which invites you to discover fifteen murals, made by artists from around the Republic.
Each painting tells a part of the history of La Paz and allows to approach, beyond the purely aesthetic aspect of the paintings, subjects as varied as the life of the fishermen, the rancheros, the current stakes of the conservation but also the history of the first Indians of the Peninsula or the prehistoric rock paintings that are hidden in the dens of the peninsula. True mirrors of local culture, these murals allow you to touch the heart of Southern California culture.
Discover why divers love La Paz
There’s a reason Jacques Cousteau called this sea “the world’s aquarium”!
The Gulf of California, or Sea of Cortez, is bordered by the long peninsula of Baja California to the west and mainland Mexico to the east, creating a perfect habitat for marine life. In fact, it’s home to one of the richest ecosystems in the world, which makes it a top spot for scuba divers. Expect to see sea lions, whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, rays, dolphins and huge schools of fish.
SNORKELING IN THE CORTEZ SEA
The Sea of Cortez is considered the largest aquarium in the world (according to Jacques Cousteau). You will have the chance to swim with the sea lions in San Rafalito, then a little apnea in this turquoise and transparent water to see multicolored corals and fish! A guide will be with you and we will give you the complete equipment and a wetsuit. A little lunch stop on a deserted beach before setting out on an adventure. This excursion is accessible to all because it is done in very shallow water.
