I’ve been to enough to give Ensenada its own pages… check them out...

Loretto & La Paz

Both of these small towns are North of Cabo on the Sea of Cortez. They cater to deep sea sport fishing (read - fishing is much better here than in Cabo, but less of a party ) Both times I traveled, or better yet, vacationed here, I paid an all inclusive package from Los Angeles. Both of these times were in the mid 1990's and cost about $700.00 (i am sure it's more these days) a person, this included:
* flights from LA to Loretto or La Paz
* about 5 days and nights
*3 days of fishing
*all meals
* (la paz) all drinks - open bar
* access to (clothing optional) beaches, golf course, snorkeling, and easy cab ride to the town.

my college friend who i went there with, is the big deep sea fisherman, so i was along for the ride, he searched for the deals. We were there mid summer, very hot, but nice. we fished mainly for Durado (mahi-mahi in Hawaii) and sailfish. and we didn't catch any marlin. the durrado were about 25 to 45lbs each (one was about 50) and the sailfish were about 120 lbs each (one was about 200) very good eats! we brought a empty 104 gallon cooler down with us, and it was filled upon return.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:easily accessible from LA or San Diego
  • Cons:skip TJ - i mean it
  • In a nutshell:for me, a quick, cheap and easy way to get out of the States for a weekend

    Whoa! Now that's a big fish you got there! But, listen....rule of thumb: if you're gonna go to a "Clothing Optional" resort, then you can't be hiding behind the palm leaves!
