EXPERIENCE OVERVIEW

The lovely port city of La Paz, tucked within a sheltered bay on the southeastern coast of the Baja peninsula, is many things. It’s the vibrant capital and cultural center of Baja California Sur; a popular destination for ecotourists, marine biologists, and beach lovers; and home to historical architecture, a waterfront promenade, and excellent restaurants.

Though less crowded and a little more laid back than Cabo (a two-hour drive to the south), La Paz is actually the largest city in southern Baja, meaning there’s plenty to see and do here—both in the water and on land. 

You can stroll or bike along the Malecón promenade, with shops and cafes along the inland side and gorgeous views of the water on the other. Dine on fresh, local cuisine at any of La Paz’s fabulous restaurants. Explore the local art scene and view the incredible murals found throughout the city. Tour the downtown district to visit the 18th century La Paz Cathedral and relax under the shade trees at nearby Velasco Garden. Spend a day sunbathing onshore or swimming in the calm, clear waters at Balandra Beach. Or go underwater for unforgettable snorkeling and scuba adventures along the reefs.

For this trip, you’ll have deluxe accommodations at the luxurious CostaBaja Resort & Spa, overlooking the Sea of Cortez. You’ll enjoy restful nights in your spacious, comfortable room, complete with air conditioning, WiFi, private balcony, and pillow-top bed, and have access to all of the resort’s amenities, including spa services, onsite dining, a sparkling pool (with swim-up bar), complimentary shuttle service, and a private beach perfect for relaxing. 

We’ve also arranged for you to experience three amazing adventures during your stay.

The first is a full-day luxury catamaran excursion to Espíritu Santo Island (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) with a marine biologist and private chef. This intimate, all-inclusive sailing cruise takes you along the bays and beaches of the island where you will have the opportunity to snorkel, kayak, or paddleboard; see friendly sea lions, turtles, dolphins, and rays; explore quiet coves surrounded by mangroves and unique rock formations; or just relax on board with drinks and snacks, while being pampered by the crew. Private bathrooms, fresh-water showers, a chef-prepared meal, and an open bar are also included.

Your next adventure is a fun sunset sandboarding tour at the Mogote Sand Dunes. With an instructor by your side and snacks and equipment on hand, you’ll visit the vast Baja desert to learn the basics of sandboarding, gradually making your way from small dunes to the area’s highest peak. Along the way, you’ll learn more about this iconic part of the Baja peninsula and end your adventure with a stunning view of the red and orange sunset across the cactus-filled landscape.

For the final scheduled excursion, you’ll either have a private stand-up paddleboard lesson (beginner or intermediate) with an experienced instructor or take an early morning trip onto the water to swim in the wild with whale sharks. These majestic—and massive—fish are found in the waters around La Paz between November and April, making it a seasonal activity, but one that’s worth scheduling a vacation around. 

Though summers in Baja are notoriously hot, the heat is made tolerable by sea breezes, air-conditioned buildings, and opportunities to cool off in the water, while the weather the rest of the year is mild and pleasant enough to make the seaside city of La Paz an ideal vacation destination for travelers year-round.
