Los Cabos Sights

Playa El Tecolote

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 08/19/2014

Fodor's Review

Spend a Sunday at Playa El Tecolote, 25 km (15 miles) north of La Paz, and you'll feel like you've experienced the Mexico of old. Families set up house on the soft sand, kids race after seagulls and each other, and abuelas (grandmothers) daintily lift their skirts to wade in the water. Vendors rent out beach chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, and small, motorized boats; a couple of restaurants serve up simple fare such as ceviche and almejas (chocolate clams). These

eateries are usually open throughout the week, though they sometimes close on chilly days. Facilities include public restrooms and trash cans. Camping is permitted, but there are no hookups. Amenities: toilets, food concession, playground, parking lot, camping. Best for: sunsets, swimming, walking.
