Where do folks go after the Baja Ha-Ha? After Cabo San Lucas, cruisers fan out. Many head north to spend time exploring the Sea of Cortez. Beyond the beautiful cruising grounds, another reason to head north is to continue socializing with new Ha-Ha friends at the La Paz Beach Party. Local marinas, marine businesses, and La Paz Tourism hosted the party on Sunday, November 21.
Neil Shroyer reported that the party was one of the largest ever, with at least 250 guests. Fatima Aviles from the La Paz Tourism Board, Natalia Ruffo, director of La Paz Municipal Tourism, and Juan Carlos Cañedo, the director of State Tourism, welcomed them. Free beers were on hand for the first 50 guests. There was no shortage of beers and other beverages for those who followed.
Visitors have found that La Paz is busy and bustling with cruisers. Most marinas are pretty full and doing all they can to accommodate cruisers with berths as they come and go. The anchorage is also busy, so cruisers who were hoping to sail in, fly home for Christmas, and return aren’t having an easy time finding a place to leave their boat. For those who are staying, there are still many harbors and islands to explore.
From the final official stop in Cabo, the Baja Ha-Ha fleet has spread out up and down the coast of Mexico from the Sea of Cortez to Mazatlán and Banderas Bay, where Vallarta Yacht Club held the Banderas Bay Blast this past weekend.
