“Teocolote has fabulous snorkeling”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

For a quiet long beautiful beach this is it!. The beach is long and faces Isla Espiritu Santo. There are restaurants that are quite good but expect touristic prices. The water is clear and you can see tons of fishes just looking at the water from land. Beautiful site!

“Nice Place”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I had a few drinks in different places. Some better than others but worth the drive. Rented wave runner for hour and headed back towards La Paz ( the other way not much to see) there are a few bays that look like bahama s here within minutes. Watch out for burried sting rays ! shuffe your feet always when walking in water. You can actually rent waverunner and go to Isla Espritu fairly easy as well.

“The Turquoise Playa”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Tecolote beach is located north of La Paz about 25 minutes by car and the most northerly of the beaches out side of La Paz. The day we were there the weather was very hot and the beach was bustling with activity as this is obviously a favourite place for the locals to relax. If you like snorkelling the best place is at the south end along the rocks where you will not disappointed. There are all kinds of fish and an impressive array of beautiful living corals.
There are also several restaurants that offer good food and drinks. The fish tacos we had were really delicious and the setting is lovely. You can see the island of Espirtu Santos to the north. The beach is very long and with water so warm it makes for a great walk and you can cool off with swims. One caution here are the sting rays, you must learn the Baja Shuffle to be safe. We saw no rays on this trip but they love the shallow warm water.
All in all a great day at the beach!!

“Best Beach Near La Paz”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Worthy of a Corona commercial. There are several restaurants and you can do things like rent jet-skis, but don't get the impression that this mile-plus stretch of soft white sand is ever overcrowded. Being on the Cortez side of Baja, the warm waters are safe for even the smallest children to play in.

“La Paz area beaches”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Water as beautiful and clear as the Caribbean, but with a lot fewer tourists. Then, of course, you look up towards the land and see the dry, cactus-laden hills behind the beach and you know you're in the Baja. Playa Balandra was equally beautiful.
