“Little parking lot in a pretty cove next to a cafe.”

Its a nice little beach cove. The parking lot is small, but during the week you will probably have the place to yourself. It has bathrooms available, no showers. Good Telcel LTE reception. Its a pretty decent place to stay with the exception of being very close to the main road. So you'll hear a lot of big rigs hitting their brakes coming down hill. Its 100 pesos a night. Not bad at all. Its proper name is Playa El Tesoro. The turn in off the main road can be a little tricky and its easy to miss. Its very close to the Baja ferry so its a good place to stay if you are about to head to mainland.

“Semana Santa: noun. A holiday in Mexico where each and every native of the country flocks to the beach for a week to party like 1999 never ended, making it hard to find a free camping spot anywhere south of Texas.”

Wonderfully close to La Paz, Cafe on the Beach is just that: a restaurant serving typical Mexican fare and cerveza. Note that while you can't buy food until 1pm or so, they will happily sell you a beer at 8am when the owners walk across the parking lot from their house to the cafe.

That same parking lot will serve as your home for the night. There are no official spots. I would imagine that on Saturday and Sunday nights it's next to impossible to get a spot here, as Mexican's tend to make the most of their weekends, right up to sunset on Sunday night.

We stayed during the week and only for a night, and it was a beautiful little experience with a nice breeze, a hot sunny morning and cool water perfect for swimming.

If you end up staying, take particular note of the signs for the bathroom, they're funny like the Simpsons used to be before Homer jumped that shark on his motorcycle.
