A few extra days in La Paz.

What to do with a few extra days in La Paz, Mexico?

I have the good fortune of being in La Paz for a conference a few days early and would love suggestions for what I should not miss and places I should definitely eat at.

A big plus if you could recommend someplace to take some surfing lessons or a daytrip to go sea kayaking.

I stayed at the Baja Bed and Breakfast and it was fantastic. The rooms are spartan with shared bathrooms, but the courtyard is very pretty and the breakfast was home made and delicious. The owner's wife cooks the breakfast in the morning, and she makes refried beans from scratch in clay pots!

The owner's son helps run the adventure tours place that shares the storefront. He will take you out whale watching or snorkeling if it's a good day, or if he can't, he will point you to someone who can.

Spent a few days there over Thanksgiving in 2007, so my info might be a little dated. We took a day trip with one of the seafront tour places out to Espiritu Santo island. We did some sea kayaking off the island, which was good fun. The beach was deserted, which was nice, but it was maybe because of the time of year. We stopped at a sea lion colony on the way where we did a spot of snorkelling too.

There was a place on the beach called Kiwi that served excellent margaritas and had a great view of the sun going down over the harbor. We didn't try the food. There was a taqueria fairly nearby on the other side of the road that did an awesome seafood taco platter. I don't recall its name, but it was big, open and cheap.
