Playa Santispac Beach Camping
Incredible beach camping in a protected cove on the Sea of Cortez. Two restaurants on site, local fisherman, vendors come through selling banana bread (INCREDIBLE), fish, and other food items. We camped with our trailer perpendicular to the water so our front door was maybe 10' from the Sea of Cortez. Camped two times here, 2nd time we spent 3 days and paddleboarded, swam. AWESOME SPOT!!!

Nice patio with a view of the water. 2 star hotel, nothing fancy and be prepared to take your own kitchen supplies.
Casa Allende Estudio #6 Malecon
Ignacio Allende 275, Zona Comercial, 23006 La Paz, B.C.S., Mexico
What a great find! Located 1 block off the Malecon and walking distance to all of the restaurants, shopping, cultural venues, and activities which start at the marina. Does not like much from the outside, but the inside is great! Gated remote controlled entrance and parking right out front. Very secure.
Hotel Seven Crown - Malacon
Paseo Alvaro Obregon 1710, Zona Central, 23000 La Paz, B.C.S.
Located directly on the Malecon and walking distance to all of the restaurants, shopping, cultural venues, and activities which start at the marina. Five story hotel with a variety of rooms to choose from. We stayed in a Jr. Suite with a balcony that overlooked the Malacon. Was fun to sit on the balcony and watch people, sunset, adn the water. Great modern hotel with very spacious rooms. Only down side is the traffic noise. Since you are right on the main drag and Malecon, it was a little noisy. So decide...do you want the view? If so, accept the noise and mitigate it. Secure parking under the building for smaller cars, on street or lot parking for larger vehicles. There is also a sister hotel in the Historical District.
