Looking for a relaxing vacation in Mexico close to the beach - but not in a "touristy" place?
Baja California Sur (southern part) on Mexico's most western peninsula is the perfect place to enjoy nature, sun, water sport, local experience and lifestyle, hot springs, and the marvelous beaches of the Sea of Cortez / Pacific Ocean.
Vacationers Can Choose Between Lots of Activities:
Swimmers, surfers, stand-up paddle-boarders, sailors, scuba divers, snorkelers, sea-kayakers, whale-watchers, kite-surfers, water-skiers, and anglers, spearfishers are enjoying the waters around Baja California Sur. Kite-surf schools teach newbies to this sport and rent out the equipment.
Many small bars, coffee shops, and restaurants in a wide variety overlook the water and are also dotting the main road of La Ventana. Visitors find several places that offer yoga and massages.
Not far from the unspoiled beaches and small fishing spots, lots of hills and mountains are stretching endless to the horizon. Small farms are hidden in the cactus and brush forest where families live like a hundred years ago - but with the help of solar now. Cows, pigs, and goats are roaming (and sometimes walk on the small country roads).
Tango Azul Casitas
Consider a stay in one of the lovely, brand-new casitas in La Ventana, Baja California Sur, still a hidden gem. These casitas (small boutique hotel-style houses) belong to the Tango Azul Resort with its native, charming gardens, attractive pool, and a huge thatched gazebo (palapa in Spanish). Here you always find a cool breeze - even at the hottest time of the day.
Under the palapa's roof, guests enjoy a complimentary breakfast or their own meals after a day on the beach. Perfect also for digital nomads to work in the gazebo's shade on their IT jobs and even use it for "working from home" with the help of the fiber-optic high-speed internet connection.
Take a dip in the swimming pool. It is open all day and evening for guests to enjoy and relax on beach lounges under the umbrella shade. Or walk down 700 meters to the sunny beaches for a swim or snorkel.
Next to the three small Mexican-style hotels, Tango Azul Resort Park has also RV lots and tent sites for those who road-trip to the Baja California Sur.
Two Airports to Reach La Ventana:
La Paz (approx. 45 minutes away) and Cabo San Lucas (2 hrs away) are connecting travelers from Canada (e.g. Calgary, Toronto, or Montreal, etc.) the USA (e.g. Dallas, Chicago, Las Vegas, etc.), and other parts of the world. Airlines include for example SouthWest, Delta, American Airlines, WestJet, Alaska Airlines, Aeromexico, etc., and KLM, Lufthansa, or TUI from Europe.
If you land in Cabo San Lucas, the coastal-road Hwy #1 takes you through Southern Baja California from the beaches of Los Cabos, through the Sierra de la Laguna mountains with stops at quaint villages, and ends with more beaches and water activities in delightful La Ventana. This mountain drive has many curves, so caution is recommended. Pick-up at the airports can be arranged, so you don't even need a rental car.
