  • 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 whale sharks, grey whales, giant mantas, and sea lions. 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 scuba diving for Open water, freediving, spearfishing, and Kiteboardsurfing.
