More Around La Paz

The surrounding waters of the Sea of Cortez provide a rich marine ecosystem for snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing. Year round a small rocky outcrop off the tip of the island offers the snorkeler or scuba diver the experience of a lifetime swimming with friendly and playful sea lions while enjoying their curios and animated behavior.

During the fall and winter months the world’s largest fish, the whale shark, frequents the waters of La Paz bay giving folks the opportunity to swim with these gentle, toothless, plankton feeding sharks up close and personal.

In mid-winter a short drive across the peninsula to the Pacific Coast and Magdalena Bay allows visitors the opportunity to witness the pacific gray whale migration with close encounters of these gentle giants in their breeding and birthing grounds.

We have been operating guided sea kayaking, snorkeling and fishing day and multi-day trips and renting kayak equipment to experienced paddlers since 1993. Let our expert staff help you book your guided excursion or rent equipment during your stay at our hotel so you can explore these rich marine and desert ecosystems for yourself.

Todos Santos, designated a Pueblo Mágico, is only an hours drive from La Paz on the Pacific Coast. This quaint and tranquil artsy town presents a great day trip from La Paz where you can walk cobbled stoned streets and enjoy a great meal in one of its many fine restaurants while shopping for artisan crafts. Just south of Todos Santos you’ll find world-class body and board surfing beaches. Head to La Cachora beach during the fall and winter months and become part of a local turtle conservation organization releasing baby turtle hatchlings each evening.

If the ocean isn’t your thing head into the nearby mountains surrounding La Paz where you can hike, bike or simply gaze up at the towering cactus. The sierra de la laguna mountain range south of La Paz is the perfect playground for hiking and biking. Explore its arroyos full with giant granite boulders and swim in the clear mountain pools (cold and hot) lined with tall palm trees.

Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys sea kayaking, hiking, bicycling, snorkeling, scuba diving, boating or fishing or simply a tourist who enjoys beautiful scenery let La Paz be the gateway for your next visit to this Baja paradise.

Let the expert staff of our in house adventure travel office of Sea & Adventures/Mar Y Aventuras help you plan your excursions in and around La Paz.

Driving from Cabo to La Paz via Los Barriles or Todos Santos:

If driving up from Cabo there are two options, through the mountains up the east coast or via Todos Santos along the Pacific Coast. If leaving from the San Jose del Cabo airport we recommend driving up the east coast. If leaving from downtown Cabo San Lucas it’s shorter to go via Todos Santos.

From the airport travel north on Highway 1 following signs for La Paz. Go through Los Barriles and on north into the mountains. Upon arrival into La Paz continue on the main highway 1 into La Paz passing the intersection where the highway from Todos Santos joins highway 1.

Highway 1 becomes Forjadores St. From the first street light you encounter to your first turn you will go approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles) over many speed bumps and 4 stop intersections passing Office Depot on your right about half way. Continue to follow signs for the Malecon (the La Paz water front promenade).

When you see a large grocery store named Aramburo on your right get into the left lane and turn left at the next light onto 5 de Febrero St. (there is usually no street sign here). After turning you should immediately see McDonalds on your right. Travel north on 5 de Febrero for approximately 5 kilometers (2-3 miles) until you can see the water of the bay of La Paz directly in front of you. At this point you are at the intersection of 5 de Febrero and Abasolo street light with a Pemex gas station on the left (northwest corner). Go straight here and look for our sign on the right half way through the block. Turn right into our alley and enter our complex of Mar Y Aventuras and Hotel Posada LunaSol. This should take you about 2-1/2 to 3 hours.

Driving into La Paz from the north and Ciudad Constitucion:

Follow highway 1 into La Paz following signs for the Malecon (the La Paz water front promenade). After passing a large grocery store on your right called Chedraui, go another 7 blocks to the light and intersection of 5 de Febrero y Abasolo with a Pemex gas station on the left (northwest corner) and turn left. Look for our sign on the right half way through the block. Turn right into our alley and enter our complex of Mar Y Aventuras and Hotel Posada LunaSol. This should take you about 2-1/2 to 3 hours from Ciudad Constitucion.
