We're going on a 8day kayaking trip from La Paz and staying at Costa Baja a few days before our trip, but after two cancelled flights to La Paz and an itinerary that keeps changing, we thought we'd fly into San Jose and bus it up to La Paz. We now have time to explore these areas so first question is stay a few days at San Jose or Cabo San Lucas? Sounds like San Jose is more quaint and quieter - we aren't "night life" people so if folks could confirm our assumption, that'd be great. Second, more important question is how to get to La Paz. Would prefer not to spend hundreds on private transportation (unless there is more to the trip than comfort), but we're assuming there's comfortable buses - do they need to be booked well in advance, or can you show up day of? We'd be interested in hearing from anybody that has taken this trip, private or public. Thanks folks.
