25 Amazing Things To Do In La Paz, Mexico: the complete guide

In BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO by Isabella Biava2 Comments

Embraced by the Sierra de la Laguna mountain chain and washed by the Sea of Cortez, the World’s Aquarium, la Paz is the pretty capital city of Baja California Sur and a beautiful beach destination that has been most of the times underrated and now on the rise.

Even Forbes Travel in a recent article has praised its breathtaking views, abundant sea life, spectacular beaches that are making La Paz a worthy competitor of  the trendy Tulum on the Riviera Maya

The vibrant city of  La Paz is indeed becoming more and more popular for the tribes of travelers in search of adventure, wildlife, and nature but also a good dose of Nightlife and fun.

There are sufficient things to do in La Paz to keep you busy for an entire week, but if you are as curious as me and love to explore, the rest of the Baja Peninsula will not let you down. This is a promise.

When I came to Baja for the first time I took a week road trip with some friends and two years later, in March 2020 I went back and I ventured for a solo itinerary of  2 weeks road trip around Baja Sur and I had a blast. So much to see.

As I am updating this post, I am writing from my rented apartment during the famous lockdown that the entire world will remember forever. I am waiting to be able to go out and discover more so that this post will continue to be updated and you will have fresh information all the time.

Here I will share with you all the amazing things you can do in this beautiful city and in the surroundings.

Where is La Paz?

La Paz is located in the South of the Mexican State of Baja California Sur, of which it’s the capital city.

What’s  La Paz, Mexico, weather?

Wheather in La Paz is very hot in the summer from May through October and milder temperature in winter. Nights are always cooler for its location close to the desert.

Is La Paz Mexico safe?

Yes, it is indeed a safe place as much as the rest of Baja California. Normal petty theft can occur, like anywhere else in the world. So usual common sense is required.

What are the tops things to do in La Paz?

Definitely spend a day in Balandra beach, one of the best beaches in Mexico, swimming with whale sharks and taking a tour to Isla Espiritu Santo where you can swim with sea lions

When is Whale Sharks season?

Whale Shark season is in winter from January through March.

When is the best season to travel to La Paz?

It really depends on what you are looking for. If you love wildlife and come here to see whales, definitely winter is a must. However the water can be quite cold, so summer would be the best choice for those who love to swim, also for divers, visibility is much better in the summer.

25 THINGS TO DO IN LA PAZ

I spent about 2 months in La Paz overall and days in La Paz went by too fast. Although I don’t think it has the charm of other more historical Mexican towns such us Queretaro, or  Xalapa, to name a few, it is still an interesting city to explore, starting from its beautiful sunsets from the Malecon.

Anyway, without any further ado, here are my favorite 25 things to do in La Paz Mexico:

Baja california Sur - An essential guide

Sunset from the Malecon in La Paz

Explore the local Markets

Although La Paz is a very touristic city and I had the feeling that the majority of its inhabitant was from US (nothing wrong with that but I just didn’t feel like I was in Mexico some times), however, you can it still find a local feeling, especially when you hang out in the markets.

There are two, one is more centrical and smaller, Francisco Madero, closer to the center. Both are interesting to explore and to try the local specialties.

The biggest one is Mercado Bravo in Calle Bravo (of course) where I used to go every morning for my healthy freshly made natural juice but you can find all sorts of local restaurants where you can taste the autochthonous cuisine.

It’s not fancy but it tastes good and it’s part of the culture.

I’ve even found a vegan option even though it’s very limited and when I told the restaurant hosts that I didn’t eat meat nor cheese she looked at me as if I was coming from Mars.

And they all started to laugh! That was funny.

On a Saturday and Tuesday, by the main plaza, in Calle Francisco Madero you will find an organic market selling different kinds of veggies and some food stall, freshly made bread, and some other organic products.

Walk around town and discover the colorful graffiti

Another thing I appreciated the beautiful multicolored graffiti that you find on every wall in the city center. They are giant representation of the local life in relationship with nature, and mainly the marine population.

It is part of a project made in collaboration with Colectivo Tomate, a group of artists involved in different urban projects in Mexico where they have revamped weary areas of different cities including La Paz.

They have revamped old walls with colorful paintings representing sea life as a celebration of the relationship between the local community and the rich marine life of the sea of Cortez, where the whale is the absolute star.

Here below a few examples.

Watch the sunset from the Malecon

La Paz is very popular, among the other things, for its spectacular sunsets that you can admire from the Malecon, the promenade by the sea which is also the beating heart of La Paz, where basically everything happens.

Every day is a new multicolored show to remind you how powerful and generous nature is and you can’t help but admire its magic.

Have a nice morning jog on the Malecon

For its strategic location, you can admire also sunrises from the Malecon in La Paz, Mexico. It amazing to be able to jog early morning in the first morning light and appreciate the soft colors of the sky reflecting over the water. The best way to start your day.

Sunrise – Malecon _ La Paz

 Walking by the water is a daily appointment that you cannot miss, and you never get tired of it.

Lots of people running, skating or just strolling, enjoying the views of their family.

Paddleboard in the bay of La Paz

If you wish to do some exercising and see La Paz from another perspective you can rent paddleboards for 10 USD for one hour or two and go out on the bay right in front of the Malecon. You will easily find shops to rent your board and row.

Enjoy the artworks displayed on the Malecon

The promenade along the bay is full of artworks representing the appreciation and respect that the local population has towards the sea but also you can observe symbolic representations such as the man and the sea, Jacque Custeau, who called the sea of Cortez The World’s Aquarium, and many more.

You just need to walk along the 5 km Malecon to find out what’s your favorite piece of art.

Enjoy the spectacular beaches of La Paz

Among the many things to do in La Paz, the beaches are always on top of the list. All the beaches of La Paz are in the same direction moving north leaving the sea on your right.

Playa Balandra

Baja california Sur - An essential guide

Playa Palandra during Sunset

This is the most beautiful and breathtaking beach and the last one. There are no bars or restaurants there; so make sure you bring water and something to eat with you.

If you decide to stay for the sunset you are going to have a beautiful show in the sky. There are basically 2 bays in Balandra. One on the left with beach chairs and umbrellas as well as kayak and paddleboard equipment to rent at a reasonable price, and one on the right more deserted and without facilities.

The water has easy access, like a natural swimming pool. The majority of the time the tide is even too low and if you like to swim you will need to walk further away from the shore.

You can access to the other beach on the right either via water or by hiking a little hill. I would suggest you to make an effort and go for a little hike as the view is amazing. You can climb on your flip-flop although you will be more comfortable in your gym shoes.

If you go on Saturdays or Sundays keep in mind that it’s going to be very busy. To really enjoy it fully, try to go early in the morning.

In Balandra beach you can also rent a kayak or a paddleboard and enjoy rowing around the bay.

How to get to Balandra beach? 

You can either jump on the bus leaving from the autobus station on the Malecon or get a taxi, of course, if you didn’t rent a car (which I would recommend).

If you have a car, just drive along the Malecon all straight up north, leaving the sea on your right side and you will literally bump into it.

On the way to La Ventana

Playa Tesoro

It’s a very tiny beach but worth a visit. You can find a restaurant and bar but you can also bring your own food and drinks.

They also rent a “Palapa” to get shade from the sun, chairs and a small table, for 250 pesos for the entire day.

It’s another option from Balandra if that one gets too busy.

Playa Tecolote

This one is very close to Balandra but on the right side of the road. The beach is great but not sandy and it’s normally noisy and busy. The beautiful view of the turquoise sea is interrupted by a sort of shacks where people gather and drink finding shades from the sun.

La Ventana – Kite surfer ready to jump back in the water… actually ON the water!

Rent  a bike

You can rent a bike for 50 pesos per hour and bike around the city or venture out along the coast. For the boldest and adventurers, there are lots of mountain bike trails in the surrounding hills. There are also biking tours organized by the local bike rentals shops.

Katun MTB day adventures offers a variety of biking an hiking tours around la Paz.

Check out the Anthropology Museum

Situated between Calle 5 de Mayo and Altamirano, the Museum of Anthropology of La Paz has been recently reopened and offers an interesting overview of the history of Baja California, from the first inhabitants until the arrivals of the Jesuits and the development of the new villages up to the modern society.

There is also an ethnobotanical garden to explore.

Scuba dive in the Sea of Cortez

Nominated the Aquarium of the world by Jacque Custeau, the Sea of Cortez is indeed one of the most amazing diving experiences. You will be able to see manta rays, dolphins, and most of all healthy reefs, sadly very rare to find,  sea lions, and much much more.

The top diving spots include Espíritu Santo island and Los Islotes.

It’s best to dive from May to October when visibility is best.

Take a day trip to La Ventana

It is a resort town at about 1-hour of a beautiful drive from La Paz.

The road is just surreal, among cactus and limestones rocks.

La Ventana is a tiny laid-back town, paradise for kite surfers because it’s always windy.

We just went to explore for the sake of curiosity and although we are not surfers we really appreciated the views of the colored kites in the sky and with surfers flipping over the water.

You can find a huge camping ground, some villa rentals or small hotels and a few bars and restaurants. You cannot miss anything out as everything is along one road only. The beach is worth visiting even if you are not a kitesurfer if you like peace and quiet.

Swim with the sea lions in Espiritu Santu Island

There are 2 main tours you can do from La Paz and they are by boat. If you love being in the water those are for you.

whalesharks

Espíritus Santo is a one-day boat tour – 1h 1/2 ride in the beautiful bay in the Sea of Cortes to the island of Espíritus Santo so popular for its funny inhabitants, playful sea lions that would swim with you and bite your fins or your go pro. The time you spend with them is short but totally worth it.

You will need to wear the life jacket for security reasons as you are entering a marine park. If you go in winter from October through April it is advisable to wear a wetsuit since the water gets quite cold at that time.

Those are not included in the tour price but are always available for rent at 150 pesos with the tour providers. The tour costs from 800 to 1100 pesos depending on the tour company. The tour leaves from La Paz around 12 pm and ends around 5.30/6.00 pm. You will stop at a nice deserted beach to have your lunch which is included and it is normally based on ceviche and crackers, sandwiches, and some fruit.

To book this tour you can either go the previous day on the Malecon and speak to the boat captain directly, they will find you. Or click here to prebook your tour.

Swim with whale sharks

This tour is seasonal for obvious reasons, as these gentle giants of the sea are in the area only in winter until the end of March-April. The tour lasts about 1h 30 minutes as it takes only 15 minutes to reach the whale shark zone. The boat captain will know where to go and look for them and when he finds them he will move along their way in order for you to be able to swim with them more times.

If you have never done it and you love the sea life it’s an incredible experience that you should try once in a lifetime. The cost goes from 800 to 1000 pesos depending on the tour company.

This is one of the only 2 places where you can swim with the whale sharks in Mexico.

The other one is in from the Riviera Maya as they swim between Holbox island and Isla Mujeres and they are also seasonal.  You can check out how and when to swim with whale sharks in the Riviera Maya on this post.

To book this tour you can also go on the Malecon on the very same morning and book your tour, or you can pre-book it on this site.

La Paz -Baja California Sur - Boundless Roads

Hike el Cerro de la Calavera

Located just outside the city center on the road La Paz – Pichilingue, it is called Cerro de La Calavera, which means hill of skulls, for the peculiar rock formations that have been molded and eroded with time by wind and water, some of them forming skull-like sculptures as you can see in the picture below. It has become a sort of geological monument of the city.

There are many legends about this place one of which says that during the Spanish invasion, the crew of a boat that disembarked here was affected by the flue. Some died there and were buried in on that hill.

It is now is home to morning routines of fit locals who come here to train and curious tourists who come to admire amazing sunsets and sunrises although the sunsets have more of an impact as the sun dip in the water right in front of your eyes.

I went with a local friend in the morning and enjoyed the hike and views not only of the sunrise but also of the typical vegetation, among cactuses and typical desert plants, very different from what I am used to in the Caribbean.

Enjoy the Nightlife

Although it’s not as busy as Cabo San Lucas, the nightlife in La Paz is still quite lively and offers a different cozy place to listen to good music and have a drink, meeting people, or just enjoying the vibes. On the Malecon, you can find different bars from where you can also enjoy spectacular views.

One particular place that I love, instead, that is not on the Malecon, is La Morante Art and wine bar, a vintage decorated place with a lovely internal patio where they sometimes offer live music shows. And of course, they sell food.

Learn Spanish

Living in a Spanish speaking country is the best way to learn the language and any touristy towns or cities have schools for expatriates and tourists who want to practice the language or learn from scratch. In La Paz you can also find such schools. It’s also a way to mingle with likeminded people.

One is El Nopal Spanish School, or you can check this directory for other Spanish class centers.

Taste fresh seafood

Finding fresh seafood is one of the easiest things to do in La Paz. I haven’t tried one because I am trying to be vegan 😉 but  a trusted friend suggested Marisco Los Laurel es

Learn about the whales’ species the Whale Museum.

Its original location in a beautiful colonial house on the Malecòn has been closed and replaced by a restaurant.  A new location should be established hopefully soon.

You can keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.

Take a kayaking tour to Espiritu Santu Island

There are many kayaking tours around the bay in La Paz up to Espiritu Santu Island. Although some time ago it was possible to do a self-guided tour it’s now mandatory to be with an authorized guide as a marine park rule. You can check out Sea and Adventures company, which is one of the most reputable and popular in the area.

Try the unique experience of Sandboarding

Baja Desconocida is a local tour agent that will take you to El Mogote at only 20 minutes from La Paz.

El Mogote is a small sand barrier that protects La Paz Bay, there you can face up to 100 feet sand dunes to perform this activity.

Besides trying a new fun adventure you will also enjoy beautiful sunsets from the top.

Hike in the Sierra de la laguna

Just so you know, hiking in  Baja California is one of the most popular activities for adventurers and explorers. Amazing hiking trails are available all along the mountain chains that cross the Baja Peninsula.

In the farthest south, you will find Sierra de la Laguna, an oasis in the desert where you can have an amazing hike along the canyons crossing rivers and discovering hot springs and secret lakes.

During my 2 weeks road trip in Baja California, I wanted to include one-day hiking.

I contacted a guide that was recommended by a friend and booked my tour.

It was an unexpected incredible area, an oasis in the desert, with palm trees rivers and waterfalls in the middle of the rocky desert.

You can check out my 2 weeks itinerary if you wish to learn more, while I am writing a brand new post specifically on the Sierra de la Laguna. Stay tuned!

Take a two-day trip in Cabo Pulmo

If you are not in the mood of going on a road trip, you can still rent a car for a couple of days and explore the southern part of Baja California, where the magic happens.

Sea lovers will definitely need to visit Cabo Pulmo and enjoy the laid back atmosphere of the so popular fishing village which became a marine park and UNESCO natural site for the protected marine life of its coast.

Cabo Pulmo snorkeling experience is one of a kind, and if you dive it’s even more spectacular.

From December through January you will be able to spot humpback whales, indeed an experience that you will remember forever.

Go whale watching in Magdalena Bay

I haven’t seen any organized tour from La Paz, however, if you rent a car, you can reach Adolfo Lopez Mateos, the best place in Baja California close to La Paz where to see the grey wales.

It’s an amazing and surreal experience to be able to see them so close by and even touch them. I am not sure if it’s the only place on earth where you can have such a persona encounter with a whale, it’s certainly quite unique.

It’s very easy and safe to reach.

You can check out my guide to whale watching in Baja California if you want to learn more.

RENT A CAR IN BAJA CALIFORNIA

I always suggest to rent a car and drive around because you have the freedom to visit in your own terms, without having the pressure of the tight schedules that groups normally have. I love to drive around a place and find new corners to discover, for as long as I want, just like I did it in Baja California.

INSIDER TIP – if you want to use your own insurance provided by your credit card, make sure it’s valid in Mexico, as I have heard some horror stories. If it’s not valid, make sure you book your insurance directly with the car rental and not with third parties and ask for full insurance, zero deductible.  This way you will be fully covered and don’t need to live a huge deposit.

If you are new with driving in Mexico, I have written a useful post with tips and interesting information that might be useful as there are a couple of things you need to know and need to be careful about.

HOW TO MOVE AROUND IN LA PAZ

The best thing to do is to rent a car. You can get it directly at the airport or in the city or you can also pre-book it here. I have used this website to compare different prices and I had a great experience. I rented the one with full insurance without a deductible, to be on the safe side. It’s much easier to move around by car and super safe. Roads are very well marked and well paved, except for some remote areas. By car, you can conveniently reach the beaches and explore the city. Especially if you wish to go to San Ignacio or any other spot for Whale Watching you should definitely rent a car. 

However, if you prefer to move around by public transportation it is also possible although it takes a little patience. 

Baja california Sur - An essential guide

On the way to La Ventana – it’s not related to the post but I love this picture 🙂 – these are the views you can have if you rent a car

 The local line is called Aguila and these are the schedules. They travel around La Paz to the beaches, but they don’t go to la Ventana apparently. For that, you need to get a car or hitch hacking.

Busses will also take you to Todos Santos, Cabo San Lucas, San Jose al Cabo, El Triunfo, Cabo Pulmo and Loreto. They also go all the way to the most northern city of Tijuana.

You can check on this site for their schedule, although if you are in La Paz, it would be better to check directly with the office, located on the Malecon. 

To move around La Paz, public transportation is very efficient. Although there is not a precise schedule you can pretty much ask at the bus stop wherever you are and bus driver can help you out. 

From Mercado Madero there are many bus going different directions.

From Airport to town the only transportations available are:

  • taxi 
  • uber
  • car rental 

HOW TO GET TO LA PAZ, MEXICO

To get to Baja California you have different options:

GETTING TO LA PAZ, MEXICO BY PLANE

To La Paz international airport (LAP) – where you will find flights from other airports in Mexico among which Mexico city and Guadalajara

to San Jose International Airport. (SJD) – about 2-hour distance from La Paz which is an international airport with flights from many different international destinations.

You can check flights availability and rates here

On the Ferry, arriving in La Paz h 7.30 am

GETTING TO LA PAZ MEXICO BY FERRY

BAJA FERRY is the operating company and  you can check time and prices here

From Topolobambo to La Paz and return. 

This is close to Los Mochis where the famous train El Chepe takes you through the Barranca del Cobre. It’s an option if you plan to go to the Barranca del Cobre either before la Paz or after. It’s actually a great combination if you have a fair amount of time and wish to combine multiple regions.

From Mazatlan to La Paz and return 

That’s the ferry I was in. It’s a night trip.

They offer the option to stay in a room and sleep comfortably in a bed for 1000 extra pesos (about 50 USD).

I wanted to try the adventure and decided to sleep on the chair of the lounge. It was like a movie theatre, very uncomfortable to sleep, but for one night I was ok.

The following morning I wasn’t sure if I was more excited to see the sunrise from the boat or to get to La Paz, which has always been one of my dream destinations, or both.

I didn’t sleep much and went out just in time to see the sunrise: surreal.

WHERE TO STAY IN LA PAZ

BOOK ON AIRBNB

On my second time in La Paz, I choose to book an apartment because I was supposed to be working (before I got laid off) and I needed peace and tranquillity.

I wanted a place close to the center but in a quiet area and at a few blocks from the Malecon for my morning run.

I found this awesome spot called Villa Esterito  in Esterito neighborhood and I was so happy, even more, when I realized we were going to be in lockdown for 2 months.

In fact I have even extended my stay.

I always prefer to book an Airbnb place for a stay longer than a week, let alone for months.

Also, they have specials offers for 7 days’ stays and even greater deals for a monthly stay.

WHERE TO EAT IN LA PAZ

To be really honest I haven’t tried all the fancy restaurants in the city since I have always been working from cafes and eating salads and sandwiches for 3 weeks. However, I made quite a bit of local friends and this is what they suggested to me:

Prana

It’s an Italian restaurant, which offers Mediterranean cuisine, very fancy and has vegan options

See reviews on TripAdvisor

Nim

I have tried Nim, for a quick soup. I enjoyed the internal garden and fancy decorations. They have a very varied menu and a few vegan options, but basic. It’s closed on Mondays.

It’s first on TripAdvisor! I guess it’s quite all right 😉

Las Tres Virgenes

I liked the internal court and the majestic old fashioned entrance. They have a vast menu with vegan options but they specialize in meat.

Sorstris

It’s one of the most popular together with Nim. It’s a very elegant restaurant with an international menu.

See reviews on TripAdvisor

Il Rustico

Italian restaurant looks good in the reviews. The menu is a mix of Italian cuisine and local flavors.

Los Laureles

For tacos and seafood, you can try Los Laureles on the Malecon. My friends went there twice in three days as they were so impressed. It’s a very basic restaurant, nothing fancy but apparently very good.

This is a great local option both for meat lovers and vegans. I had an amazing salad with juicy grilled portobello mushrooms and my friend had his freshly made hamburger. Great service.

COFFE SHOPS IN LA PAZ

So, if you are following me for a while you might have realized that I am a fan of coffee-shops from where I love to write my blog and work online. Unfortunately in La  Paz wifi is terrible everywhere, I have tried a few spots but it’s all the same.

However, except for the WIFI quality, here is a list of coffee-shops that I have loved the most

Big Sur

This was my favorite overall, for the very warm and cozy ambiance and great pastry. Even though I am trying to eat vegan and healthy I had to give up a few times and commit the sin and never regretted it. The pastry is to die for. Also, the sandwiches, although a little too tiny, were really good and they made it vegan for me. The coffee is their specialty as they have different varieties of organic coffee from many different areas of Mexico. So all is local. Besides, among all the places this is where WIFI is less terrible 😉

I was there almost every day with my laptop for many hours and even though I wasn’t a big consumer I have never felt uncomfortable or being pressured to go or order, as sometimes it happens in many places. Therefore I feel like I should mention it.

See reviews on TripAdvisor

Doce Cuarenta

The place is great, cozy and well designed.

I loved especially the internal garden. They have many dishes also suitable for vegan and vegetarian. Lots of pastry choices, soups salad, and smoothies. The vibes were great and I felt also comfortable staying there all day working.

The big issue of this place is that WI-FI is the worse ever.

And it seems they cannot do anything about that.

It was disappointing to have to leave the place in the middle of a productive day, just because it just didn’t work.

Working from Doce Cuarenta with my vegan chai latte

Capuchino

It’s a tiny place with great vegan options and the wifi is working quite well most of the times. The only problem I had was that I wasn’t feeling very comfortable as I was being asked if I wanted something all the time. I felt like I wasn’t welcomed to stay so long. It’s true that they didn’t have many tables but I have never seen it full.  But maybe that was just me and my perception.

Velvet

It’s a super tiny place and I only went there one time because they made vegan pastry, which was delicious. They don’t have it every day, though.

See reviews on TripAdvisor

Bagel

The place is really nice but I have never gone to sit and work, just a couple of times for coffee and I really enjoyed it. They have vegan options too and my sandwich was hummus and veggies was extremely delicious. The vegan chai latte as well.  The waiters are also super nice. They also sell roasted coffee and delicious wheat bread.

  1. I love La Paz and I visit there at least once a year and the only thing that i don’t like its that they don’t have many specialty coffee shops. The cafes available are cute but are not specialty and if you are used to specialty coffee you might miss it. But still, I love la Paz and I will continue going every year.

    1. Author

      Hello Felipe. Thanks for your input. I love la Paz too and I have found quite good coffee, but maybe I am not that sophisticated. 😉 Cheers!
