We believe La Paz has the best of all that Baja has to offer – a little bit of all the undeniable attractions of Los Cabos, Todos Santos and the other towns in this region where mountains meet desert and the sea.
Other cities of Baja Sur are fun, exciting and you’ll probably want to experience all of the riches … from nightlife to water sports, shopping, culture, golfing, hiking and sightseeing.
Cabo San Lucas, on the southwestern most tip of the cape, is a great spot to party day or night, play golf, charter deep sea fishing, kayak, shop or drink and dine at a wide variety of restaurants and bars.
While Cabo’s nightlife may not be quite on a par with Acapulco, its resort atmosphere attracts a young and vibrant crowd. Cabo remains both a popular spring break and high-end holiday destination.
Luxurious resorts and timeshare clubs continue to grow along “The Corridor,” a 20 mile stretch of coast between San Lucas and San José del Cabo on the east end of the cape. Many sport golf courses on-site or nearby.
The favorite of many Baja travelers, the smaller and more peaceful San Jose del Cabo offers a historic downtown district with a charming plaza, excellent dining, and a high preponderence of art galleries.
Los Cabos International Airport (SJC) lies roughly 8 miles north of San Jose, about 30 miles northeast of San Lucas.
Enjoy Los Cabos in day trips from La Paz, stay overnight or for a few days, OR, make San Jose del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas your home base and visit our City of Peace from there.
Transportation options abound.
You are welcome to the comfort and expense of a cab going any and every direction. Bus service between La Paz and Los Cabos is excellent and the preferred choice of many.
Flying into SJC, you can easily take the shuttle to the bus station in San Jose, and transfer onto a comfortable air-conditioned coach which will take you all the way to the Malecon in La Paz for around $30 US. You can even enjoy snacks and a movie along the way. The bus also picks up passengers in San Lucas and Todos Santos, if you’re staying there.
We prefer to fly directly into the no-hassle La Paz International Airport. The expanded routes and schedules into SJC offer more flexibility for many of our neighbors, most of whom utilize bus service between La Paz and SJC.
For greater independence, many car rental companies serve Los Cabos and La Paz. You’ll need a car to more fully explore the cape; just be prepared for heavy traffic and parking challenges in all of the cities.
