  • Description

    Description

    We are a small family located in a laidback town near La Paz by the Cortez sea that runs a watersports resort.
    We have 10 small bungalows, 4 boats, and a diving/fishing center.

    Besides our diving/fishing center we also have a restaurant and bar which is kind of a core where travelers, workers, volunteers and tourists meet.

    We offer spearfishing, freediving, Kiteboard-surfing, SUP/Kayak, snorkeling, excursions such as whalsharks, greywhales, giant mantas and sealions.
    Also we offer guided tours to waterfalls and Cave paintings.

    Nov-Mar its a bit colder and the winds are a bit stronger which means its kiteseason.
    April-Oct is months more optimal for diving, snorkeling etc.

    Time to time we do courses such as scubadiving for Open water, freediving, spearfishing and Kiteboardsurfing.
