I visited La Paz for a well earned escape from work at Easter 2016. Although the internship is usually for 12 weeks I was welcomed by Demi and the team to assist as much as I could for the week while I was able. The hospitality was second to none and the professionalism and dedication associated with recording whale shark movements and teaching me as mach as they could in that short time was fantastic. For work reasons I was unable to stay in the designated accommodation but I was able to visit it and it was very comfortable and hospitable. The team went out of their way to socalise after boating hours and also assisted me in finding other excursions to do in the area. This is a beautiful part of Mexico that is enhanced by the hospitable and welcoming people. It was also a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in a worthwhile scientific program. I look forward to returning when ever I am able.
