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.
