We rented a small casita for a month, and settled into an active month of chasing wind and waves on the waters of La Ventana. When the wind doesn't blow, there are plenty of other things to do. Morning bike rides in the Cactus trails, yoga, stand up paddling, hiking and exploring some nearby mountain towns. A few times we returned to La Paz, only 40 minutes away, and on a decent paved highway, to continue boat projects, do some shopping and have an occasional music date. We enjoyed hanging out with our La Ventana friends, as well as hosting several visitors who came down from CA and other sailboats.
