During our Baja stay, we went over to an area west of La Paz called La Ventana to go camping for 2 nights.
It’s exciting to go somewhere we’ve never been before.
We had been in a cafe in Todos Santos having chips, salsa and a margarita when we struck up a conversation with Larry from Captain Kirk’s Wind Surf Resort which turns out is located in La Ventana. The very town we had been talking about going to!
I just love it when the Universe sends us the person or info we’re looking for! Synchronicity is a wonderful thing.
Larry, a yoga instructor at Captain Kirk’s, told us to definitely go check it out and that there was camping in an RV park that was on the beach.
So we headed out.
La Ventana is about 40 minutes out of La Paz. It is a small town known for great kite boarding that sits along the Sea of Cortez. We easily found the RV park but the gate was locked and no one was around.
We went down the road looking for a good place to camp. We came upon an area along the beach with trees which always makes a good camping spot. Greg asked some locals if it was okay to camp there and they said yes.
We got some stuff out and relaxed on the beach. Greg went up to the store nearby and bought some huge scallops for dinner.
On his return, he noticed there was a restaurant next door to where we were at with a great deck and view of the ocean. So we headed there to check it out.
Soon we noticed a man who walked in and sat down next to us. It was Larry who we had met in Todos Santos!
He told us about a better camping spot just down the road at the El Sargento beach. He called it the Hot Springs because he said you could actually dig into the earth and warm water could be found.
We said our thanks and good byes to Larry and headed to the area he told us about.
We found a great spot along the beach with some hilly areas behind us to make it seem private. There was a slight breeze which made it nice since it was hot!
It was perfect camping.
Setting up camp.
Greg built a great shelter for shade.
I kicked back and read a magazine while eating chips and salsa. What a luxury!
No one was around. Nice and private is just the way we like it.

A great place to enjoy the sun, sand and surf!
Have you had any synchronicity happen to you lately?
