We played it safe; steering away from street vendor eats, and took in a fantastic sushi joint – Jiro Sushi. Angie, the owner, was extremely hospitable. The food was exceptional and very fresh. An extraordinary sunset delivered fantastic dining entertainment.

There are several sites along the coasts that will be roped or fenced off in an effort to protect the turtle nesting and hatchling sites. We were fortunate to discover one in the midst of the Malecon in downtown La Paz. Hopefully the new hatchlings will all make it to the water and swim off safely to enjoy a fulfilled life at sea.

Now that we’ve taken in some of La Paz’ treasured eateries, sent the laundry out and re-provisioned, we are ready to take up the dock lines and set sail east to Mazatlan.
