Looks like a great trip!Thanks for sharing
We headed south for La Paz after a three nights at Bahia Conception.
Our guide book said there were two RV parks in La Paz, one which was close to the Malecon. We spent the better part of an hour looking for it only to find out later that is doesn't exist, we ended up at Camp Marantha just on the outskirts of town. It was a nice place with good wifi and a pool.
We spent the night walking the Malecon and had dinner at the applebees's there (shame lol). Such a beautiful spot, we had to leave the next day but we decided to spend another night on the way north.
We were given three nights for free at a timeshare in Los Cabos, which was a nice resort. It was quite the culture shock of arriving in Cabo San Lucas, I spent the first night trying to find a dive shop but gave up after becoming extremely frustrated with the town. We never went back into San Lucas and spent our time in San Jose Del Cabo which is a much quieter town.

Baja Brewing - Great beer and even better food!
I went diving one day in Cabo San Lucas. While it was a good dive and saw cool stuff like the underwater sand falls, I did feel that it was a tad unsafe with all the boats zipping around where we were diving and not sure I would recommend diving in that area to anyone else.
We drove a bit of the way up the East Cape road, we only drove about 1/4 of the way up and wish I had planned more time to do the whole thing.
More to come!
Great report so far, thanks!
Very nice. Can you comment on gas prices? Daily budget?
Camping on beaches was cheap you usually paid some owner 1-8 dollars depending on the popularity of the area, RV parks were $10-20 depending on what they offered.
Food was cheap if you ate at non-gringo places, you could get a nice Mexican dinner for about $5, or you could live off roadside taco stands for about a dollar a meal. If you ate at gringo places, it was still cheap maybe under $10 each for a nice meal.
Overall, it is very affordable and I was pleasantly surprised by the price of gas!
Oh man. Those pictures make me miss Baja. Its kind of funny, gas used to be more in Baja than the US when I went there, now its the other way around.
Thanks for sharing this ToyCDN. Beautiful pics and stories. Looks like you escaped Raincouver the right time, we had miserable march this year. Tell us more how your "pretty much" stock M101 handled the Baja roads?

can't wait to get off the boat so i can actually view the pictures...
I've been slow getting this written up, here is another little bit.
I had heard that Aqua Verde was a special spot that we should try to visit, unfortunately there isn't much information to be found on it. It is a small fishing community located on the Sea of Cortez, about an hour and a half from the highway on a steep somewhat dangerous road.
This picture does't do it justice but it is quite a steep road and a long way down
We settled into a small beach just outside the main village area, where a small family lives and collects a small fee for camping (20 peso). It turned out a church group also was camping on this beach and they stayed up into the morning hours chanting and shouting. It was by far the worst sleep I had during the trip. Ironic since Agua Verde was the most remote place we stayed. Luckily they left after the first night.
Popular spot for sailboats
I made sure to drink my Guinness on St. Patricks Day!
I went for a little walk and found this mummified goat
The father of the family living on the beach took us aways down the coast in his boat, where we did some snorkelling. Lots of neat fish to see but unfortunately it became windy and we turned back early. I had heard that there were some cave painting in the area and one of the sons from the family took us to see them.
Ricky (I believe this was his name)
Some neat hand prints on the walls of the cave, We were warned that there was rattle snakes in the cave so we were careful where we walked.
