La Paz Mexico
Why visit La Paz Mexico ???
La Paz is the capital of Baja Sur with a population of around
200,000. It is a traditional Mexican city . . . a port city with
fishing as its main industry which has managed to escape becoming
one of Baja Sur's americanized tourist destinations. The upside is
that the lack of popularity makes it a nice break from the "same
thing, different place" resorts and a great place to find hotels
at bargain prices. Well . . . for now anyway. La Paz currently has
an 18 hole golf course, a 1,700 acre resort and large new aquarium
under construction. That and the more frequent stops by cruise ships
signal the beginning of changes under the sign, "coming soon".
The current state of the "Tourist Zone" consists of the Malecon.
More than just a sea wall, the Malecon is lined with a sidewalk and
parks for strolling and socializing. On the southwest end of the
Malecon is the Marina La Paz where cafes line the walk way and an
ever growing number of condominiums and vacation homes are constantly
La Paz Mexico may not be your typical tourist destination . . .
but it offers :
- Calmer water at the beach
- Lots of eco-tours
- Scuba operators
- Whale watching tours
- Fishing charters
- A short bus ride to Los Cabos
- Discount prices
If you need more reasons than that . . . La Paz may not be the best
choice for your vacation. Though we do offer plenty of
information on other destinations in Mexico . . . So take a look
and explore your options before making a decision.
