La Paz

4.3
It's no coincidence that La Paz means "peace" in Spanish, as this tourist center with a small-town vibe offers a tranquil atmosphere and blissfully pleasant weather throughout the year. Arguably the most traditional of Baja Sur's cities, La Paz stands in stark contrasts to the overcrowded and expensive developments to the south. Though many travelers simply pass through the city on their way to Los Cabos, those who take a holiday in La Paz enjoy outstanding scuba diving and sport fishing in the marine life-rich Sea of Cortez. The city also provides a good base for visiting the nearby islands, lapped by waters filled with species of marlin, manta rays, parrotfish, and yellowtail. La Paz is in Baja California Sur. Our Mexico road trip tool combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in La Paz

The historical center offers some surprisingly budget-friendly options, with many small hotels and pensions clustered around the cathedral and the city beach. For something more luxurious, look about 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the city center, where you can find a few beach resorts offering swimming pools and exclusive restaurants.
