While you’re in Los Cabos, you can take day trips with Los Cabos tour guides to see nearby towns.
The Los Cabos tours that we offer travel to Balandra, Coromuel, La Paz, and Todos Santos. La Paz, however, is one of the most popular towns that people choose to take a Los Cabos tour. La Paz is about 90 miles outside of Los Cabos, so during the drive you’ll get to enjoy beautiful views from your window. La Paz is also the capital of Baja California Sur and has over 245,000 residents. The history of La Paz starts in 1533 when Spaniards discovered La Paz Bay. Although it was discovered, though, it wasn’t until 1720 that a Jesuit mission was established. The mission was then abandoned 30 years later because of the harsh climate and Indian uprisings, but Pearl diving and mining continued to attract Spaniards. In 1811, a permanent settlement was established; La Paz became the official capital in 1830.
In the mid-1970’s, La Paz became a popular tourist destination because of its sunny beaches, sport fishing, and excursions. When you take a Los Cabos tour, your Los Cabos tour guide will tell you more about the history while you explore the promenade and beaches. As a bonus to this Los Cabos tour, we will also take you to Todos Santos, where you can see the famous Hotel California.
