Discover jewel-toned La Paz

With pastel-colored houses, sunny plazas and a breezy waterfront promenade, it's easy to fall under La Paz's spell. The Bajan town captures the hearts of vacationers with a timeworn beauty that dates to the Spanish colonial era. Spend your days peering into stone churches, devouring crispy fish tacos and shopping at local markets. La Paz is also a gateway to Baja's jewel-toned coastline. La Paz vacation rentals make the most of the setting with stunning waterfront properties. Needless to say, 1000 shades of blue and green will elevate your morning coffee to the next level.

Sleep under the stars in La Paz

At sunset, you'll find locals strolling along El Malecon, a 3.5-mile-long promenade lined with sandy beaches and open-air sculptures. It's impossible to resist the allure of Espiritu Santo, a UNESCO World Heritage site made up of more than 200 islands. Whether you opt for a kayaking tour, snorkeling trip or catamaran cruise, you'll be smitten by the aquamarine archipelago. Want to really connect with nature? Why not spend a night sleeping under the stars on a "glamping" trip? Overnight stays are the best way to discover Espiritu Santo's sandy beaches, pink-tinged sea cliffs and hidden sea caves.

Swim with whale sharks in La Paz

The Museo de la Ballena offers a fascinating glimpse at Baja's flourishing gray whale population. Inside, you'll find audiovisual displays and beautifully preserved skeletons, all accompanied by a soundtrack of ethereal whale songs. La Paz vacation rentals also put you within striking distance of Cabo Pulmo National Park, a kaleidoscopic marine reserve that boasts some of Baja's best diving and snorkeling. As you explore the park, you'll find yourself immersed in a wonderland of rainbow corals, cruising sea turtles and, if you're lucky, a whale shark or 2.

Pack a costume for Carnaval La Paz

While some parts of Baja get much colder in the winter, temperatures along the Sea of Cortez rarely dip below the 70s. Balmy nights are perfect for seafood BBQs and ice-cold Coronas on the deck of your La Paz vacation rental villa. Visit in February and you could catch Carnaval La Paz, a colorful celebration featuring street parades, glamorous costumes and plenty of tequila. Crowds always spike over Christmas, New Year and the US summer break. If swimming with whale sharks is on your wish list, visit from September to April.

La Paz – a gateway to Baja California

La Paz sits on the south-east tip of the Baja California Peninsula, around 2 hours from Cabo San Lucas. The landscape is dramatic, with the aquamarine waters of the Sea of Cortez standing in stark contrast to the sunbaked interior. As well as being one of North America's prime gray whale-watching destinations, La Paz also offers a unique opportunity to swim with whale sharks. The Sea of Cortez is a haven for the gentle marine giants, which flock to the warm waters to feed on krill.
