Five guys riding motorcycle in the Baja in Mexico.
The day didn't start out well as one of our riders had an accident with his moto.
Up until now it had been your average hotel/motel in the Baja but we were now expecting to be in one place for a few days and needed to look after our injured rider in some comfort.
El Angel Azul seemed just right as it blended the History of Old Mexico with some new world comforts and an amazing courtyard, right in the centre of La Paz.
When we arrived, we were treated to a very comfortable and beautiful spot.
It was really a shame to waste it on 5 guys riding motorcycles.
Our wives would have been proud at our choice.
The beautiful courtyard, well decorated rooms and a very social lounge and veranda that doubled as the Breakfast Spot for the morning had us all feeling like it was home.
Esther (the hands on proprietor) was an inspiration to us all as well.
She had taken the place single handedly (with a most capable staff) from a run down courthouse to an oasis in the middle of the Baja. No small feat for a petit single gal from Switzerland.
We had safe parking for out bikes, great breakfasts, a wonderful three nights rest and lazy days spent reading in the courtyard, exploring the sites of La Paz and a wonderful time for healing our amigo and his bike.
Esther was a great guide to the best eateries in town (one of which was a Fish Taco stand just around the corner)
You meet the nicest people in these sorts of places.
If you are planning a trip to Baja, El Angel Azul has to be on the list.
