baha or mexico

We have just returned from a rainy week in Costa Rica with our son, his wife and 7 month old baby. We stay at 2 Xendari resorts - Alajuela and Xandari on the Pacific. Both were beautiful, low key and had warm and exceptional service. Now we'd like to take our children to a place that would be easier for them to get to from San Francisco. If anyone has any information re. warm, low key, visually attractive, natural and environmentally responsible places to stay, I'm listening. Baha California, Mexico, Arizona, New Mexico, etc.
Thanks, Giannetta

I guess you mean Baja which is in Mexico. Alaska (not my favorite airline) you can be in either Puerto Vallarta or Zihuatanejo in less than 4 hours on direct flights. Both great destinations with Zihua a bit calmer, less people & of course less man made attractions.

Giannetta, what's your price range and when are you thinking about going?

p.s. in case anyone is wondering, Baja California is the name of the northernmost state in Mexico, which comprises the northern half of the Baja California peninsula. Baja California Sur comprises the southern half.

La Paz on the Baja and Puerto Vallarta on the mainland are my two favorite west coast Mexican vacation destinations.

Tulum (Mexico) has environmentally sensitive hotels - it's all off-the-grid. Everyone supplies their own power via solar/wind; although some do have stinky generators for a/c (you can avoid them!).

You aren't going to find anything in LaPaz or even most all of Cabo remotely like what you have described in Costa Rica. I don't think you'll find that in Puerto Vallarta, either.

As others have mentioned, Baja California is actually two differnt states in Mexico, if that actually matters.
