La Paz, the city of peace, is an eclectic mix of laid-back, cosmopolitan, traditional and upscale. Although it's a city with all amenities, the slow pace and friendly people of La Paz maintain the small town feeling. It has a dry desert climate and cool ocean breezes at night, making it a wonderful place to live.
The crown of the city is the downtown Malecon, an oceanfront walkway that stretches 5.5K (3.5 miles) from Marina de La Paz in the south to Playa Coromuel to the north. The Malecon is an infinitely interesting place with its sandy beaches, sculptures by local artists and plenty of places to sit and people-watch.
Whether you're taking a long morning walk, exploring the great restaurants and funky stores or enjoying an incredible La Paz sunset, the Malecon will capture your heart. There is something for everyone in La Paz. Your only problem will be deciding what you want to see or do!
La Paz is your doorway to the "world's aquarium", the spectacular Sea of Cortez. Here you can:
- Swim with gentle whale sharks
- Kayak in front of your home
- Snorkel with sea lions
- Go deep sea fishing
- Take a diving tour of the surrounding islands
- Learn how to stand-up paddleboard?
You could chose a different beach every day of the week...each one unique and breathtaking. But there is much more to La Paz and its surrounding communities than water activities! Maybe you want to:
- Study Spanish
- Visit a museum
- Attend a concert
- Volunteer to help rescue dogs

- Watch a soccer game
- Take salsa lessons
- Volunteer at the orphanage
- Go horseback riding on the beach
- Catch a movie
- Go for fish tacos
- Take up yoga or zumba
- Explore the segundas (second-hand stores)
When you're done with the fun, head home for a shady siesta in your hammock!
