We took the free bus into town and walked around the town, eventually having food and a beverage at one of the local sidewalk cafes. We are familiar with the town and enjoy it.

If the whale sharks are in season, you should take advantage and swim with these gentle giants. The locals are very protective of them and their natural environment. This was a great experience.

La Paz was a 30-minute bus ride from the port (which had vendor stalls just past ship security lines), with interesting country to see on one side and the large bay or inlet on the other. My husband rode in but decided he didn't care to walk around so went back on the same bus. I walked down the Malecon to the south(?) end, talking to two college girls who were "ambassadresses" for their country, telling me something of their history and the significance of the different waterfront statues they were standing near. I had lunch (at Applebee's!) then wandered up the hill to the church and through a pre-Christmas street fair/sale, with almost anything you could want available, and lots of the residents buying food or school clothes or toys. Had a great time, felt safe the entire time though I was alone, and talked to some of the locals I passed. Read Less

Took a bus to town and a cab back to the ship. Beautiful place. Didn't really do it justice as we left the ship quite late. We walked from the bus terminal to the church, toured the inside and back to the terminal, which was incredibly crowded with passengers trying to return to the ship. So we took a cab. Read Less

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk around La Paz. There are lots of tourist police around and we found it to be very safe (despite the police incident that apparently occurred while we were there). The people were lovely and very friendly. We would like to fly down here in the future for a week long getaway. Very quaint. We also really enjoyed the artisan market at the port where we docked.

We decided to go to downtown and after walking through the main area and along the Boardwalk we found a welcoming bar on the beach to just enjoy the view and sip a drink. Read Less

This was our first time in La Paz. There were buses at the port to take folks into town or to a beach. There was a mariachi band that played to greet us as we left the ship. I went on a wonderful Carnival sponsored excursion called the Kayak Adventure. We were taken in a small boat to a private deserted beach. Then we got into 1 or 2man kayaks. This was my first experience with a kayak so I asked to go with one of the guides. The bay was calm and fairly shallow. There were life jackets one could wear and we were given water/soda to drink. There was also a safety boat following us. It was a lovely experience!!! On the way back to the ship we saw whales breaching and sea lions playing! I highly recommend this trip! The only bad part of the day was the fact that the free buses to town stopped at 2:30 so if you came back later you had to take a taxi. My husband really liked La Paz!! He thought the architecture was beautiful and the shops were nice. We would really like to go back and spend more time there. It seems to have a nice combo of town/shops/and beach activities!!

Took a tour bus excursion into la Paz. The dock is out in the middle of nowhere. Ride took about 20-25 minutes. We stoped at an old garage where the had handmade looms. They demonstrated how they make string and then make it into bankets and other hand woven items. Very interesting. They had a small shop where you could purchase items made there. We also stopped downtown and shopped at some of the local stores and street vendors. You can buy the same jewelry here as you can from the guy out at Yalapa at a better price. Necklaces run about 8 dollars in La Paz We also stopped at a pottery shop where they make high end clay fired pottery. The tour guide was from that same area of town so I think maybe they had something going on, but it was very interesting and we did buy some very nice coffee mugs and lovely turtles. Read Less

This was my favorite port. We got off the ship and got on a free bus to Tecolote Beach. It was far less crowded and developed than Peurto Vallarta or Cabo san Lucas. There was just one main restaurant/bar and maybe a couple small ones, but I couldn't really tell if they were open. There were free palapas for shade, no chairs, but the beach was soft! We walked way down to the south (I think!) edge to where the beach ended. Again, our 5 year old loved playing in the water and we were able to relax! We had fish tacos at the restaurant, they were excellent. We ate raw fruits and veggies and used ice at several ports and never had any stomach upset. An absolutely perfect day! Read Less

Good guide. Lives in La Paz. had a lot of history of Baja to share. The ceramic factory is great. The malecon stop allowed some shopping or margarita sampling

The ship's excursion to the Serpentario cost $140 for two, a ridiculous price. We saved $104 by doing it on our own, taking the "free" shuttle 35 minutes into the city, hiring a cab with English-speaking driver who waited for us while we gazed at the snakes, lizards and turtles. Enrique the cabbie had spent 11 years working (illegally) in the USA. "Trump," said he, "don't like Mexicans." The Serpentario (admission $8 per person) is a small exhibit space, quite charming, run mostly by volunteers and worth a donation. We oohed and aahed over the cute little chicks and baby rabbits until we realized their purpose in life: to provide food for the reptiles. Well worth a visit, but not at $140 or anything close to it.

Having a shuttle from the ship to downtown was appreciated. Little town with nice beach across from the main drag.

We took the shuttle us to town and walked the malecon. Then we walked up to the old town and visited the cathedral. It was a very quiet charming town.

We used the free shuttle provided by La Paz. It was an enjoyable ride into the city with guide provide to tell us about the area. The city was very clean and had a large market place.

I have always wanted to see La Paz as I know someone who owns a home here and they speak very highly of it.
