Cold, rainy, and snowy in Vermont, but not at Isla Espirtu Santo in the Gulf of California, near La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Water temperature 68-plus; daytime air temperature 75-plus; fish tacos for supper. The land is essentially a desert, but the gulf is one of the most diverse aquatic habitats on earth and we had knowledgable guides to explain the geology and marine biology we saw. Better place to be in April! Click here for a gallery.
