Your typical Mainland beach
It doesn't make much sense to me. Why would someone prefer the mainland over the Baja? Every year we head over to the mainland for winter and admittedly we have a great time enjoying lots of live music, great restaurants, large cities and surfing. And then every year we cross back from Mazatlan to La Paz and anchor at our first Baja stop called Bonanza on Isla Espiritu Santo and we think, "Why did we leave?" Of course, in the meantime we had forgotten about the 50 degree air temps, the non-stop Norther wind storms and the freezing cold water temps we had left back in December!
From March to November though, the Baja is king in my books. The stunning natural beauty, unpopulated beaches, and the beautiful Sea so chockful of life make the Baja a magical place for me. At Bonanza we swam in the crystal waters with visibility over 20 feet. We had a wonderful dolphin show at our bows while underway, and we marvelled at the beauty.
But a picture is worth a thousand words. So you decide. Where would you rather be?
Bonanza's mile long, glistening white sand beach with not a soul on it, but lots of shells. Jet skis not allowed!
