    We went in early morning with less people and the water was warm and beautiful! There are a few restaurants and rentals but not open until 11 am so it is quiet and peaceful in the morning.  more »

    Great place for camping swimming & just enjoying the Beautiful Sea of Cortez - several small bars / restaurants where you can have your comida & cervesa at a table right on the sand. Beautiful views!

    The beach is excellent and very nice place. The food and service are pretty bad. More than two hours for you serve as a meal.

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.
