This place is the epitome of the saying no bad days. Crystal clear waters, shallow calm ocean, order a beer and do nothing while you sit under a palapa enjoying a nice shrimp cocktail. Wonderful place for snorkeling and kayaking.

We like El Tecolote beach. When we've traveled there, we've had the place to ourselves both times. We ate in the restaurant both times, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both times, the food was good but what's hard to beat is the view.

the food here was good, but nothing exceptional. what can you expect from a beachside palapa? We had the stuffed clams (good), grilled shrimp (dry), and marlin empanadas (not bad). With 4 beers the check came to about 740 pesos, $40 U.S., rather pricey. But...More

I guess because this is a prime beach location the prices are going to be higher then roadside stands, but we had two fish taco plates (basically 4 street tacos - see picture) an order of chips and guacamole, one beer and one water and...More

We went for a drive north of La Paz and ended at the end of the road, about 25 km north of La Paz. It was a partly cloudy day and the turquoise water off the beach was very attractive. The waiter brought us our...More
