With summer officially here in La Paz and the excruciating heat that comes with it, one might be a little bit hesitant to head outdoors.

However, as a lover of the area and a full-time resident, not spending time outside is impossible for me.  La Paz is a wonderful place to enjoy the natural wonders and I have made up a list of fun things to do to make summer in La Paz a part of a lifestyle, a lifestyle that does not include staying inside with the air on 24/7!

Here are my top 10 things to do in this paradise I call home during the summer months, and happy about it.

1.Cool, early morning walks and exercise along the Malecon.

2. Driving into the hillsides after a rain to see the bursting, blooming colors.

3. Backyard BBQ’s so I can learn more about Mexican grilling, have a beer, listen to music and enjoy friends.

4. Go to Tecolote Beach. Being spoiled with service, refreshments and a frequent dip in the water.

5. Snorkeling. Water clarity surpasses HD TV.

6. Fishing. It is like my golf game, I am not very good at it, but with one good shot or one caught fish I keep coming back for more.

7. My friend has a small sailboat and I am really looking forward to learning how to sail.

8. Evenings along the Malecon with ice-cream while listening to a free concert and enjoying families.

9. Learning to scuba dive in one of the top 5 dive destinations of the world.

10.  I am easily amused and actually look forward to the variety of ways my fellow Paceños greet me and let me know how hot it is today… Oh, really?
