About La Paz

The City of La Paz is the capital of the state of Baja California Sur, Mexico.  A medium sized city well known for the peacefulness of the sea, spectacular sunsets and the warmth of its people.  La Paz is located 2.5 hours drive north of Los Cabos and the San Jose del Cabo airport, 1 hour from Todos Santos and 4 hours south of Loreto.

The city is a mix of laid-back, old-world beauty and wonderful contemporary Mexican design. La Paz lives up to its name with a quiet and relaxed lifestyle. Even though the majority of its residents are Mexican, La Paz is considered to be a cosmopolitan city, it is surprisingly international during the cooler months of the year, if you walk down the famous Malecon (seaside boardwalk) you’re as likely to hear French, Portuguese or Italian here as English or Spanish. This wonderful place has earned worldwide recognition as a place to come rest and retreat.

If you enjoy water sports or activities, such as fishing, diving, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing or simply admiring unforgettable sunsets; you have come to the right place.

The City of La Paz provides visitors with all the services required to make their stay a perfect experience; direct flights from major cities across Mexico and the world from nearby Los Cabos Airport, casual restaurants and fine dining with the beautiful bay as a backdrop, car rental companies, modern medical facilities, activities, culture and nightlife.
