Wow! We LOVED it here. Soooo much better than we ever imagined. Casa Cuevas is comfortable, cozy, and in a prime location. The online photos represent the property very well but we thought it was even better in person. The patio with views out to the sea and people watching are very relaxing. On-street parking in front of the casa was easy and safe. There is some traffic noise from the road, but this is the city so that would be expected. It really didn't bother us at all. After 10pm traffic dwindles to very little noise and inside the casa seemed a world away. Occasional mariachi bands played nearby in the evenings to add to the character of the place.
The Malecon is such a fantastic place to walk, run, bike, people watch, or just soak in the gorgeous sea view. Dozens of great places to eat within walking distance. It was a fun just to randomly walk the streets to explore the city. We felt as safe or safer than any other city we've visited. Fantastic beaches nearby to swim and kayak. We had the most incredible trip to Espiritu Santo island. Whales breaching 50 yards from the boat, swimming with playful sea lion pups in the wilderness, snorkeling into a school of hundreds of manta rays, spectacular scenery, lunch on a pristine isolated beach...all in the same day. UNBELIEVABLE! (Our guides Marine Biologist Alan and Capt. Sergio at Espiritu & Baja Tours were *FANTASTIC*). Snorkeling with the whale sharks just across the bay from the casa and the trip up to Magdalena Bay to pet the curious newborn grey whales were icing on the cake. We had a crazy good time here. We stayed for a week and wish we could stay longer. We would come back in a heartbeat. La Paz is now one of our all time favorite places. Starting and ending the day at Casa Cuevas - perfection.
