What people are saying about La Paz, Mexico

Our Whale Shark experience was absolutely amazing! From finding the right wet suits and fins, to teaching us about Whale Sharks and how to safeguard them, to safety procedures on the boat and water, to making sure each swim was a great experience for each person on the boat. He made sure we each got "film" time too which I highly recommend getting! It is breathtaking to be that close to the whale shark and all you want to do is take in the moment!
