My wife and I had a great trip to Exotikite Kiteboarding school. I have been to three other schools in Mexico and Hawaii. These guys are the best place I have found to take lessons. With what feels like endless beaches and great consistent wind, Los Barriles sets the stage for and epic place to learn. Exotikite has the best instructors I have taken lessons from, as well as some of the best equipment. They put radios on our helmets so they can continue giving instruction the entire time the students are in the water. They also have vehicles on the beach to take you upwind to maximize your upwind time with the instructors. We will be coming back!

By far the best horseback riding experience I have ever had. Everyone in my group agreed that this was the highlight of our four day trip in Ensenada.

Ensenada Grande

Reviewed By katarzynac843 - Larkspur, United States

Was lucky to get there with Selkie Travels- after exiting snorkelling with Sea lions we got to this beach for lunch - it was the most breathtaking beach I have seen- sand is white and water is so super blue- it was worth every penny - make sure you save a day for this trip as it is not close from La Paz and all depends on weather as well — so book it and enjoy the raw beauty of Baja

Bay of Cabo San Lucas

Sheltered harbor great for fishing.

Reviewed By RichardS778 - Scottsdale, United States

My wife and I have been to Los Cabos and the bay area many times on land and on cruise trips. On our last cruise on Princess the ship will shuttle you into the very pretty small harbor and from there you can strike out to so many points of interest like beaches, just a short water taxi ride or cab ride away, there is good fishing depending on the season, whale watching, snorkling, hotels, all inclusive resorts and this is a destination wedding location for many. With rere exception it is safe but always remember you are in Mexico and be smart. During the day it is 100% safe in my opinion. There is the usual tourist shopping...many places to eat and have drinks and so on. Hills surround the bay and it is just beautiful. Safe swimming in the bay but not on the Pacific side. Many tours are available. Folks there are friendly.

Pretty beach ideal for swimming, sunning and snorkeling.

Reviewed By marsha395 - Dallas, United States

Took a nice hike over from Lands End on a recent Saturday morning. It was a busy place with a few vendors and lots of water taxis coming and going. Beautiful place if you want to spend some time in the water!!! Nice to actually be on Lovers Beach rather than just looking at it from one of the boat rides!
