I am spending the Winter in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. I don't currently have a light wetsuit (being from the PNW in Washington). What would you recommend for a wetsuit and at what weight, 3mm or 5mm? Thanks for the help.
Hey Michael
I have spent the last 2 winters around La Paz, you will need a good 5mm suit. Some go for 7mm. Cortez is colder than the Pacific, but you will need 5mm for both come January.
Thank you - I wanted local confirmation. Looking at the water temperature, 5mm seems right to be comfortable. I was hoping 3mm, because of weight compensation and flex but it is what it is.
