It is about 10 miles north of La Paz, not hard to locate . We stopped first at playa Tesoro, super shallow water.
we are going in a cruise ship bur heard so much about this beach we are traveling with a 13 and 14 year olds (boys) what can we do at this beach to keep them entertained

When you arrive, you will want to take a bus from the Cruise Ship Terminal. The closest and most beautiful beaches, about 6 kms. very short drive, are Balandra and Playa El Tecolote. You will not find much nicer beaches... More
