La Paz, Mexico, and the Sea Lions

La Paz, Mexico, Perfect for Snorkeling Snorkeling in La Paz The water surrounding La Paz, Mexico, was not as cold as I expected as I climbed off the boat, but I was still nervous. The sea lions were everywhere, and as far as I could tell there were no fences between me and them. I bobbed up and down with the surf because the wet suit I was wearing made me like a cork. I am terrible in the water, almost as bad as I am on a boat. However, these were sea lions. Lots of them. They lounged only feet from where I was splashing around. They...

Surfing Sayulita

Surfing Sayulita: A Life Lesson with Pepe So there I was, lying on my stomach on a scratched up surfboard staring at Pepe le Pew’s feet. There were other options of course – Sayulita’s main beach is riddled with offers of surfing lessons by everyone from attractive twenty-year-old professionals to local beach bums working out of scruffy shacks – but something made me stroll right by all the others and straight to Pepe’s haphazard thatched stand.

Finding the Lost River in Costa Rica

A Hidden Thermal River in Costa Rica’s Dry Forest What is Rio Perdido? Floating in the river, I close my eyes and let the hot water wash over me, easing all the stress and fatigue from my body and mind.

Here, deep in the Costa Rican tropical dry forest and removed from much of the world as I know it, is Rio Perdido. The relatively unknown Rio Perdido is a difficult...
