Kayak and Snorkel

A stunningly beautiful place! Simply magnificent! The best experience! The guides were wonderful. The snorkeling experience was beautiful; I swam to a little beach that I absolutely loved. The water is crystal-clear blue. I saw turtles, birds, and many fish. I will definitely repeat this experience. Thank you.

Excellent day

José was an expert and considerate tour guide. He maintained a perfect pace for kayaking, and the water was beautifully colored and very warm. Beachcombing and a picnic. Snorkel to see many tropical fish amidst coral. I highly recommend this half-day adventure.

It's a must!

An excellent choice to explore the paradise of Balandra. Stunning views during kayaking and hiking. Guides Fernando and Mateo were knowledgeable and engaging at all times. I believe this was the best thing I did on my vacation in La Paz.

Kayaking with Sea Lions

We'll start our kayak journey from a turquoise-water beach, immersing ourselves in the stunning coastal scenery. Along the way, we'll encounter remarkable wildlife, including nesting birds and, with some luck, schools of mobulas, leaping fish, and dolphins. The highlight? An up-close experience with sea lions.

Departing at 9 am, it takes us about an hour to an hour and a half to reach the sea lion colony, depending on the weather. We'll then stop at a nearby beach for some snorkeling and a relaxing meal break. Our return journey will start around noon, wrapping up our 9 to 10 km expedition around 12 or 1 pm.

Kayaking from Tecolote to Balandra

Our adventure begins at 9 am at Playa Tecolote, kayaking towards the enchanting Balandra Beach. There, we'll discover the iconic Mushroom Rock, navigate through mangroves, visit pristine beaches, and snorkel over rocky reefs.

Our return journey will take us along the region’s majestic volcanic rock cliffs. This unique 9 to 10 km route promises an unforgettable kayaking experience.

Kayaking in the Bay of La Paz

This shorter kayak tour, perfect for sunrise or sunset, spans approximately 5 km. It's an ideal choice for a closer encounter with nature.

With a bit of luck, we might spot dolphins, especially in the mornings. Our destination is the other side of the Bay, where mangrove channels await us, alongside unique sights like sunken sailboats. We’ll have time for a relaxing meal and to enjoy the moment in this tranquil setting.

Kayaking in San Juan de la Costa

San Juan de la Costa, north of La Paz Bay, stands out with its dramatic coastal landscape, featuring cliffs and black sand beaches, a result of volcanic activity. This unique 12 to 14 km journey offers visitors a chance to appreciate the region's diverse landscapes.

In colder seasons, we’ll snorkel in shallow sargassum forests teeming with life, and in warmer times, swim among rocky reefs and coral patches. It’s an ideal spot for bird watching and a perfect getaway from the usual tourist spots, promising a special and unique adventure.
