Destination: La Paz

The capital city of Baja California Sur, La Paz and surrounding towns such as San Pedro, el Centenario and el Zacatal combine to make the fourth-largest municipality in Mexico. La Paz has an arid climate that is perfect for golf: typically warm, dry, and sunny with a year-around average of between 73 and 77 °F. Rainfall is minimal, and La Paz averages over 300 days of sunshine annually.

Eco-tourism is the most important source of tourism income in La Paz, as people come to experience the area's marine wonders. There are some 900 islands and inlets in the Gulf of California, with nearly 250 designated as World Heritage Bio-Reserves. The primary tourist destination of the area is the Isla Espiritu Santo group, which borders the southeastern portion of the Bay of La Paz and are considered the crown jewels of the islands of the Sea of Cortez. Diving, snorkeling, and kayaking in La Paz are considered second to none. The area also boasts world-class marinas, boatyards and marine supply stores.

Golfers in La Paz won't want to miss CostaBaja Golf Club, Mexico's first Gary Player design. Other well regarded courses in the area include the Arthur Hills Course at Paraiso del Mar Golf & Country Club, and Bahia de Los Suenos Golf Club, which was designed by Tom Doak.

Getting to La Paz: Manuel Marquez de Leon International Airport serves La Paz with flights to Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Los Angeles. Ferry services operate from the port of Pichilingue outside the city, connecting the Baja California peninsula to the mainland at Mazatlan and Topolobampo, near Los Mochis.
