Enjoy La Paz in your own private home. This 1942 classic and cozy casa is newly renovated to contemporary standards but also to retain the charm of Old Mexico. Centrally located three blocks from the main town square and on the Malecon waterfront, this two-bedroom home has all the amenities including a large patio with palapa on the waterfront side with stunning La Paz Bay views and a private, bricked and walled patio to the rear of the casa.
La Paz, the capitol of B.C.S., Mexico, is located on a bay inside the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez). Jacques Cousteau baptized the sea as ‘the largest aquarium in the world’ and contains a unique environment, lighting up fluorescent plankton that attract and feed hundreds of marine species.
The La Paz Bay coastline with more than 20 tranquil beaches in 17 miles and many uninhabited islands offer endless enjoyment in the form of kayaking, sailing, whale-watching, swimming, snorkeling in coral gardens and diving and snorkeling with sea lions, whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, giant manta rays. Leaving the central pier or at the many beaches, tour companies will tailor their tours to your preferences and provide equipment and lunches. All beaches are accessible by using comfortable buses that depart from the Central Bus Station on the Malecon just 3 blocks from Casa Cuevas.
The most favorite walk of both tourists and locals is the La Paz Malecon which now stretches for 5 km and is considered one of the most beautiful in all of Mexico. The Malecon serves as a focal point for friends and families to gather for a leisurely stroll along the Bay of Peace, dine at one of the many outdoor cafes, enjoy free concerts most weekends and savor the flavor of a truly great Mexican city.
Espiritu Santo Island located at the far end of La Paz Bay, has a surface area of 62 square miles, separated from the last beach by a 4-mile wide channel. Because its scenery and sculptures were formed by erosion, it is one of the most amazing islands in the Gulf. Its coasts have cliffs with multi-colored volcanic strata, small sand beaches and ponds bordered by mangroves, a Frigate bird sanctuary, a Blue-footed Booby nesting area, many other species of birdlife – a birder’s delight (don’t forget your binoculars), and a sea lion rookery at the north end where you can swim with the babies. UNESCO has protected all the islands in the Gulf and in 2007, the government designated Isla Espiritu Santo a National Park of Mexico.
If you like the challenge of golf, La Paz just opened an 18-hole golf course across the bay in the peninsula formerly known as 'El Mogote' now Paraiso del Mar, with its free boat transportation from La Paz plus a new Gary Player course at Costa Baja Marina and Resort; it is just fascinating!
Again, many reasons for you to stay in our beautiful CASA CUEVAS!!!
