this really is a must see in los cabos . just got back to uk and did this trip quite easily . it took a few hours from san lucas . with a couple of stops .
we took the mountain route and stopped at Los Barilles [sp] on the way , and also a quick stop at El Triunfo [sp] on the way . both neat for a pit stop . old town of ET , and kite surf beach of LB . you can drive onto LB beach .
wouldnt want to do the la paz journey in the dark , roads up over mountains are intersting ! random animals litter roads , workmen on verges diging , narrow, sheer mountain drops with limited armco barriers if at all . definitely do this during the day as others have said !!!!!!!!! there where a lot of wicked thick skid marks off the road along the route - not good and i guess from animals at night .
mountain roads are spectacular tho , youll want to see it during day too . views are epic . lots of peaks , dried river beds , bridges and views .
we found it a nice simple straighforward drive , even tho we had sat nav it really was very simple to do . you could also take the todos santos route but woldnt be as interesting i dont expect , plus the road is being resurfeaced by all accounts and isnt good for a while yet but will be faster when done .
id recommend la paz for 1 very big reason - balandra beach !! WOW WOW WOW . 10 mins drive out of la paz ... one of the msot spectacular bays ive ever seen . no tourism , no commecrcial shiz , 2 or 3 kyaks for rent , 1 beach with 15 locals , plus 4 deserted unreachable beaches [get that kayak!] , one enormous bay that is mostly less than 3 - 5 ft deep right accross with pelicans cormorants etc fishing , and a crazy mushroom rock for an iconic picture moment . telecote beach is next to it ! plus yuo go thru a cactus forest to get to it from the malecon prom .
GREAT DAY OUT ABOSLUTELY A MUST DO . PURE PARADISE . tip : to get there keep the water to your left when leaving malecon and go thru the port . a right turn after port and a left to beach a few miles after [both signed] . view the beach , the bay , and the route on google maps or google earth
here is car park centred on this map
we hired a car from alamo in san jose , left for la paz for a few days ,then returned it in san lucas to finish our holiday [rented from alamo for top price , i just booked it online and collected it next day] . tried to charge us extra for insurance that was incl but after a 5 min debate they waved . con or legit mistake ?? - if it was legit it shouldnt happen again ;)
amazing place ! ill post pics and vids today or tomorrow .
NB ---- there is no facilities there , take drink/food . and bread for gulls ;-)
