Why are flights so expensive to La paz. Is there a cheaper way to get there?  (1 Answer)

Hi, It seems that the southern Caifornian Baja is hard to get to from LA. Flights in February are350 plus return and car rental is impossible from LA as they only allow entry to the 'free trade area'. Can anyone let me know where I can rent a car in LA that includes Mexican Insurance and allows travel to La Paz? Or where I can gat cheaper flights? Thanx ....Dave

places to stay in La Paz, Mexico?  (1 Answer)

Hi -- I'm traveling to La Paz in December with my boyfriend and my daughter, and I'm wondering about good places to stay in La Paz. We'd love to find a two-bedroom apartment or hotel suite if possible. We're very eager to find some place small, unique, not one of the big resorts. We don't need anything fancy. Low budget is fine. Thanks for any advice!

La Paz in late november ?  (2 Answers)

My fiance and I are going to spend a few days in late november (Thanksgiving holidays) in south baja, and we'res hesitating between Loreto, La paz, and San Jose Del Cabo.We really don't like resorts, and we don't like to be surrounded by throngs of US tourists and loud american discos (we simply hate the spring break atmosphere), but we do like to go out at night and mingle with locals and dance on nortena etc and walk in nice little streets etc... that's why I though La Paz might be a good idea... Basically, we're looking for a location with pretty sandy beaches/ coves, warm water (even in november), no waves, no wind... and more local color at night than... American color. How is La Paz area in late november ? Is the sea pleasant to swim/ snorkel (without a diving suit) ? How bad can the weather get ? Are the beaches in the area exposed to cold winds ? And can we find lovely sandy beaches without buying a tour to one of the islands (we will rent a car) ? Or should we just go to San Jose del Cabo, to be sure to hahve hot weather/ warm water ? THANK YOU :)

Motel Recommendation  (4 Answers)

My wife and I with our 10 year old son are planning a trip to La Paz in March. We love staying on the beach and I've read that La Concha is good. However, I've read a couple of postings that as of late, it may be a bit run down. Does anybody know if this is the case? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. keith
