About a hundred miles northwest of Cabo San Lucas, La Paz is the bustling capital city of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur.
La Paz is particularly known for its oceanfront promenade facing the calm Sea of Cortez, as well as its long stretch of soft white sand and warm shallow waters, making it the safest beach for kids in the area.
International restaurants and art also populate the city, overlooking the breathtaking Gulf of California.
Dive or snorkel in the colony of sea lions on Isla Espíritu Santo, or watch gray whales from January to March in Magdalena Bay. For attractive Instagram photos, go glamping under the stars on the seashore or up the mountains at Sierra La Laguna.
