Heading to Barriles on 2/18. I was just wondering which wetsuit to bring. Is Feb colder than Dec?

February is warmer than Dec. in Baja. A shorty is plenty, unless you spend any time in the water, in which case full leg protection helps to keep the jellyfish stings to a minimum.

Have fun for us all.

I was there January 18th - 25th. I brought a shorty and full. Wore the shorty for the first 2 days, then swithched to the full.
The cold rarely bothers me, but I was glad to have the full suit. Occasionally had to open the suit up around the neck to cool down a bit.
