Things to do in La Paz

  • La Paz is known for its beaches and Playa El Tesoro is no exception. It's a quiet strip of sand fronting the Sea of Cortez, great for non-motorized water sports, a bit of fishing or perhaps even seeing dolphins and whales breaching from shore. Boat tours are available to take you to some of the offshore island, most of which have a desert landscape that contrasts with the deep blue waters. You'll need sunscreen, a hat and a cover-up. That Mexican sun can burn if you're not careful.
  • Every year the California grey whales come to the Sea of Cortez to mate and give birth. Several whale watching tours get you out on the water to get a glimpse of these highly social animals. Snorkelling and SCUBA diving tours are also popular. If you'd rather stay on dry land, bird watching tours are available.
