After the long drive through the seemingly endless deserts of Baja, lots of small towns, and several days camping on the beach, we really enjoyed our time in La Paz. It's a city of about 200,000, not too touristy but with an active expat community, beautifully situated, lots of art and culture, and with more of a mainland Mexico feel to it than other places we visited. We stayed at Campestre Maranatha, a nice RV park on the outskirts of the city. It had a great swimming pool with a kids' pool too, two playgrounds, teepees, and a friendly and helpful owner. It was a great place to spend some time catching up on laundry, email, shopping, etc. It was a city where I could definitely envision spending more time. We stayed there three or four nights on the way south and then a few more on the way back up north. These pictures cover both visit.
|La Paz has a really nice malecon, and we enjoyed walking it a couple of times. The kids always seem to gravitate to the sand!|
|La Paz seemed to have a big arts community and this was a cultural center of sorts. We walked around for a while, enjoying the art and the air conditioning.|
|The malecon, like the one in Puerto Vallarta, is lined with large and interesting sculptures. I really liked this one.|
|Poppy took this picture of Erik and I one night while we were out for dinner. On a date, just the two of us, you know, with our four kids.|
