La Paz

It's no coincidence that La Paz means "peace" in Spanish, as this tourist center with a small-town vibe offers a tranquil atmosphere and blissfully pleasant weather throughout the year.
Step out of La Paz to go to El Sargento and see Rancho Cacachilas, which is approximately 52 minutes away. The adventure continues: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, get outside with HarkerBoard co., look for gifts at Caktu Souvenirs, and wander the wide-open spaces of Rancho Cactimar Desert & Sea Eco-Ranch.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our La Paz route planning site.

San Francisco, USA to La Paz is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and tram. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from San Francisco to La Paz.

Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can go by car to Cabo San Lucas.
