What you'll do

The day begins early in the morning with a 2.5 hour around the hills of Balandra. We will walk uphill a rocky terrain, then on sandy beaches, and intertidal zones We will get an amazing view at the end! The hike is a beginner level, it has some uphills and rocky terrain but it is fairly easy. It will be guided by me and/or my partner. We will share all we can about the life we encounter, as well as the history of La Paz and its inhabitants. After the hike we will relax by our camp on Balandra beach with commodities like shade, beach chairs, towels and snacks. We will continue the adventure by kayaking (2 hours) to a mangrove and a rocky/coral reef, where we will jump into the water for a snorkeling experience. The campsite will be waiting for us with a delicious ceviche, snacks, and drinks. A relaxing afternoon awaits.

Unfortunately, I can't do this experience with only one guest. If you are a solo traveller please book on a date that already has more guests coming.

Other things to note
The hike and the kayaking requires a good physical condition. By the end of the day you will need a really good night of sleep, but the adventure is a 100% worth it.

I am a marine biologist, scuba dive master and a lover of nature. I've been living in La Paz for almost a decade and I still get surprised by all the paradises it hides. I am always amazed by the beauty of the natural word, and my favorite way to admire it is by immersing myself in it. Hiking, kayaking, diving and snorkeling are my favorite activities to explore the amazing environment that surrounds us. I have been an Airbnb host for over two years and meeting people from different cultures has been an incredible enriching experience.

Phenomenal experience! We got to kayak through mangroves, see amazing sea life snorkeling, and take in some incredible views on the hike. Food was really good, much better than expected. Karen and the other guides are very knowledgeable and personable. I strongly recommend this tour!

This experience was physically challenging but absolutely worth it. Karen and team were extremely knowledgeable and the sites seen were unparalleled. They made sure we were comfortable. One of the best excursions we’ve done in.

This experience is anchored around Playa Balandra, and Karen’s unique perspective (as a local and a marine biologist) will help you to discover all that this area has to offer. The diversity of the terrain on the hike was very unique, and it wasn’t too difficult. Wear decent shoes. Beyond the magical landscape, you are bound to see a magical sea creature or two. Also the mid-day lunch was surprisingly tasty and nourishing.

The scenery was so beautiful!!! The hike, snorkeling, kayaking were all so fun. The ceviche provided was the best ive had in la paz. I was so full and still wanted to devour more. Karen and daleth (please forgive me if i got the spelling wrong) were both amazing caring guides who made us feel very comfortable and they made the experience even better! Thank you both!
