CNN Money Magazine and the New York Times named La Paz one of the Top Ten Places to Retire in the world!
A secluded town on the east coast of Baja California Sur facing the Sea of Cortez, La Paz — whose name literally means “peace” — is famous for beaches as beautiful as the Caribbean’s, and sport fishing as exciting as anywhere in the world.
Yet somehow La Paz has escaped the crowds. It has only quietly been discovered — just as it was discovered by Cortez in 1535, John Steinbeck in the 1940s, and Jacques Cousteau in the 1960s, and by the close-knit community of North Americans and mainland Mexicans who now mix happily with the native Paceños.
Those fortunate enough to find La Paz are careful about sharing their secret. They are passionately protective of its white sand beaches guarded by dreamlike rock formations and forests of cardón cactus, its bay after aqua bay open to discovery and teeming with sea life.
Deemed “the world’s aquarium,” the Sea of Cortez offers one of the planet’s most diverse ecosystems which is home to harbour porpoises, whales, dolphins, sea lions, mantas and sharks, while its rocky coasts are home to hundreds of resident and migratory birds.
The diversity of La Paz is social as well as natural. Its friendly and open residents admire the city as much as its visitors.
With a population of approximately 220,000, La Paz is blessed with natural, recreational and cultural abundance, offering a rare combination of overwhelming beauty, sense of community and well-balanced infrastructure.
It is a close-knit community that feels like a small town but with the conveniences of a city. An important regional commercial centre, it offers advanced medical, educational and social facilities, a cultural life that extends to international cuisine and shopping, a new state-of-the-art General Hospital, and its own dedicated airport.
La Paz’s cultural life mixes sophisticated international tastes with pure Baja values and allures with valuable opportunities for real estate and investment.
Recently, La Paz launched an awareness campaign in conjunction with approximately $1 billion in well-planned economic development over the next five years.
At the same time, its low cost of living supports an exceptionally high quality of life, which is why CNN Money Magazine and the New York Times named La Paz one of the Top Ten Places to Retire in the world.
