You've now added La Paz Farmers Market to your itinerary. The adventure continues: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, step off the mainland to explore Isla Espiritu Santo, don't miss a visit to Malecon, and see Off-Road Tours.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, you can read our La Paz online tour planner.
