Mangroves and Beaches: Balandra is a shallow ocean inlet between two mountain ridges featuring a series of stunning secluded beaches and bays surrounded by mangroves. In 2016 is has received an international distinction of "Mexico's best beach". The area is also considered La Paz’ landmark, due particularly to a rock formation known as the “Mushroom”.
We take you on a little known path right along the edge between mountain, desert and mangroves to an otherwise inaccessible beach; on this nature interpretation hike you are likely to observe some of the many bird species native to the area. From a hill right by the lagoon you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the panorama. After a less than 5-min. drive we will also visit Tecolote beach, which is beautiful in a different way. Tecolote beach is an endless, wide strand ideal for swimming and relaxing as well as the perfect spot to enjoy a platter of fish tacos, a typical local dish, in a beach restaurant.
Meeting/pick-up point: Lobby of the clients' hotel in La Paz.
