Baja California Sur is made for relaxing, La Paz is where there's some action

Esa página está disponible también en español.

La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur has a small gay scene and lots of people watching and cruising opportunities along the Malecon. As well as the places listed below there are a number of straight bars with some gay following such as La Cantina, The Jungle or RedX.

La Paz is not itself a beach city, but within a 10- to 45-minute drive from the center you'll find some of the loveliest beaches in Baja, reminiscent of the Caribbean with clear, calm turquoise waters. At sunset there is cruising going on along the beaches north of town between Playa El Coromuel and Playa La Concha. Further away, Playa Balandra is worth the trip and some cruising has been reported walking from Playa Balandra to the next beach.

The beach resort towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo (the two largest towns in the Los Cabos area) don't have any gay nightlife we know of but the area has many gay friendly hotels and lots of beautiful beaches to explore.

Todos Santos is popular with artists and is known for its many galleries. To the south, beaches like San Pedrito and Los Cerritos are known for their strong surf.

For the north part of Baja, go to the Tijuana page or the Baja California North page for Mexicali, Ensenada and Rosarita.
