Ok, this is painting a better picture for me. We aren't going to have a ton of time, so I don't want to be fooling around.

Good reports thanks.
Generally speaking think San Diego weather.
I notice it to be about 2-3 degrees warmer in San Quintin.
So if you interpolate that distance as being 2-3 degrees warmer the farther south you go you should be about right.
The marine layer affect has similar predictably.
The farther south the sooner it clears until you get far enough that there is none.
Keeping in mind that the Tropic of Cancer crosses a bit south of La Paz.
So... it's literally "tropical" down there. Hot, humid and perfect.
The couple of trips I've done south of El Rosario were all earlier than May and the marine layer never burned off. It was just a tad cold, windy, lonely... and perfect.
It depends on would mood your in I guess...

4th of July in the south zone is overcast and hazy. Water is cold until end of Sept and then its not really warm like So Cal. A mile from the beach its 100 degrees.

Long ago I was surprised to learn that the ocean water temperature actually gets colder just south of the border. The "Southern California Bight" is a sort of a giant eddy that allows the water to warm up offshore San Diego and LA. South of Tijuana the cold Pacific current returns along shore and results in cooler ocean water temperatures that extend for quite a long ways to the south.

It is usually really cold here in La Bocana, BCS until August. Well, although the wind is cool, it is nice to be out during the day but downright cold at night.

That being said, the day before yesterday we had santa ana conditions and it was so darn hot and humid that we actually turned the A/C on! Bliss. Yesterday, temps were normal.
