“Now that the weather is cooling off some up north, it's time to start dreaming of the good life south of the border! I remember being back home in Delaware, there was a nip in the air, the leaves were turning and I was dreaming of sun-drenched beaches in Mexico.

CostaBaja Resort in La Paz, Mexico - Hammock in Paradise | The Joy of Mexico | Scoop.it

“I recently visited La Paz, Mexico, as part of a trip sponsored by the Mexico Tourism Board. This was my third visit to Mexico, but my first to La Paz. La Paz took me by surprise for several reasons. First, it’s a coastal city that shakes things up with rugged desert views blended with azure seas. I didn’t expect that at all. Secondly, the city of La Paz is low key and relaxed, rather than touristy; which makes it a perfect vacation destination. I loved my sunset walk along the boardwalk, where I watched local families enjoying a day at the beach, riding their bikes and walking their dogs. It’s real Mexico rather than a tourist version.”
