La Paz is located on the Sea of Cortez, 100 miles north of Cabo San
Lucas and is the capital of the state of Baja California Sur.
La Paz, originally a pirate’s haven is the states largest city. Italian
missionaries built a church in La Paz over 500 years ago.
A trip to La Paz is a full day excursion which should include shopping, just
strolling along the malecon and lunch on the beach or in one of the many
seaside restaurants. You may want to plan an extra night into your
itinerary just to enjoy one of the famous La Paz sunsets, which can be
some of the most picturesque seen anywhere. The beaches north of La Paz
include some incredible coves where you will easily put the rigors of
reality far behind you. Carnival in La Paz, held on the six days before
Ash Wednesday, is one giant party with colorful parades, street dancing,
carnival rides, entertainment, games and a great family atmosphere.
