Sparky's beach and our marina for 6 weeks
While staying in La Paz, we chose Marina Costa Baja as our home base for several reasons. First, it is a lovely setting complete with a gorgeous Infinity Pool - which we used daily.

Costa Baja has beautiful lush landscaping, dramatic architecture, happy colors, good cafes, a deli, laundry pick-up, and an army of great guys to expertly varnish, wash, and wax El Tiburon. Did I mention the Infinity Pool at the "cruiser's lounge"?

|Our second full moon at Costa Baja|
After two full moons and many awe inspiring sunsets at Costa Baja, the New Year was the right time to head south to the mainland. The winter weather in La Paz was becoming cool and with the onslaught of northers generated in the USA, especially of the Santa Ana variety, El Tiburon and her crew were anxious to anchor in more settled and warmer waters. January 2, 2011 we sailed south towards Mazatlan on the mainland of Mexico.
