la paz – friday

Baja reminds us of Arizona. dry, brown hot,and beautiful. the Costa Baja Resort is amazing. It sits in a protected cove of the Sea of Cortez, and the water is so clear and warm. we walked out to our belly buttons and could still see the ocean floor. white sand beaches and cool ocean winds make it perfect.

Our room has a great view said ocean, as well as the swim up bar in the beautiful blue tiled infinity pool. we checked in, washed the travel off, jumped in swim suits and “bellied” right up to that bar! Nahteya was our server, and she suggested some of the best seafood dishes I’ve ever had. The aguachile camerons, and the scallops in this jalapeño tomato and lime juice dishes were/are my absolute favorites. So light, refreshing, and clean tasting – the favors sang to me!

We met tuna fishermen from LA, and a few locals. It always starts with just M and I at a bar and before you know it, there is a party! Good times!

Dinner at the resorts restaurant – Steinbeck’s – continued the fresh fish extravaganza. I had a fish I’ve never heard of, similar to our sea bass, and M had the Mahi Mahi. Both dishes were incredible, and we couldn’t complete our first day without a shot of their best tequila – Don Julio REAL – boy was it Real! If you know anything about me, you know I am a tequila girl, and the restaurant bar has 3 full walls of tequila! Heaven!! I can’t wait to go back and get acquainted with them!! I say there should be nothing wrong with a self created tequila class, little sips of this and that to really gain an appreciation for subtleties of tequila. Off to see what day 2 brings!
