La Paloma

(4.5/5 based on 380+ reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing
A small coastal city set on the edge of an attractive bay, La Paloma has a population of only around 3,500. Much more of a beach resort town than a city, La Paloma dates back to 1874; it attained the status of "pueblo" (village) in 1939, and "ciudad" (city) in 1982. The town itself has a few charming restaurants and bars, with live music and other entertainments both traditional and modern. However, it's down by the water that people invariably find themselves when on holiday in La Paloma. The golden sand of the bay's beach attracts sun worshippers and water sports enthusiasts, relaxed weekenders, and backpackers.

Where to stay

As an established resort town, La Paloma houses many different accommodation types, making the coastal urban area appealing to a range of different budgets and tastes. Generally speaking, the busier hotels can be found toward the east of town, with a cluster of fairly simple, mid-range hotels to choose from. Moving west along the coast, you'll find apartment hotels and larger resort-style accommodations occupying scenic positions with good views of the bay. If looking to stay for a longer period, consider an apartment in town, with plenty of vacation rentals to choose from.
