This little timeshare property in laid back La Paz is a real sleeper. The complex is not new, nor glitzy, but the place is immaculately cared for and the people could not be nicer. 16 units only, we got to it through an exchange with RCI, and spent a week there. Large unit, great king bed, plus other sleeping for up to 8. Pool, no jacuzzi, free WiFi in the lobby, no phones in the rooms. No oven, but two very nice BBQs around the pool. And we too went to the welcome talk, with coffee pastries, etc.
We bought the cut rate boat trip around Isla Espiritu Santo island ($45 for one) at the beach (Tecolote) and while that was a good trip, I went back and did the kayak one day trip with Mar y Adventuras for $95. Much better as the guide was fluent in English and we had a frolicking great time swimming with the sea lions, plus about 1 hour of kayaking.
La Paz is low key, though a typical Baja town. Have fun in the markets, ...I used a bike the resort has to tool around town. Not as cheap as one might expect , but you can have breakfast for $3 from a tiny street market, especially if you can puzzle out the Spanish.
Staff at Los Gaviotas is ALL fluent in English, and very very eager to please. AND there is some English language TV.
