First of all, this beach is very beautiful and clean. On the other hand, if you think you are going to see lots of fish, you are wrong. This beach is like a giant, natural... read more

Best beach of the trip. We liked Tecolote the best because it was a nice blend - good services, activities/rental gear, friendly people. Clear water, decent depth, great views. My daughter had an awesome massage from a Portuguese woman there who was a pro.

First of all, this beach is very beautiful and clean. On the other hand, if you think you are going to see lots of fish, you are wrong. This beach is like a giant, natural swimming pool and will not disappoint for a swim. For snorkeling you will need to take a tour to one of the islands, like Espiritu... More

From the gorgeous view of the island of Espiritu Santos to the lovely beach with all its services and delicious food....This beach is a winner! Great for swimming and sightseeing and just a lazy beach day and proximity to Balandra beach which is extremely close and totally different make it a great outing for the day.... I would recommend having... More

We happened upon this spot by accident, just taking a drive from La Paz one morning. There was a fairly large restaurant right at the end of the road but we turned right and found a smaller spot with the tables right on the beach. The ceviche was excellent and the fish tacos the best we found in Baja. And... More

We left from Tecolote for the Espiritu Santo sea lion trip and were glad to have done so, since it shortened the time in the boat (versus starting from La Paz) and also gave us time to explore the beach. Both ends have interesting rock formations to browse, and there are a couple of on-the-beach restaurants if you want a... More

We visited Tecolote several time during our week in La Paz. This is a family beach with several clam shacks. We highly recommend Restaurant La Concha, at the far right as you drive up to the beach. We were looking for a shady spot to park our stuff, and a really nice guy calling himself "Big Nose" came up and... More

We kayaked across from Espiritu Santo, and landed at this beach. It seemed nice, though we didn't spend a lot of time there.
