Baja California Sur is made for relaxing

Esa página está disponible también en español.

La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur has a small gay scene, an annual pride march and lots of people watching and cruising opportunities along the Malecon. Unfortunately, the gay bars that we did know about have closed but there are a number of gay friendly places.

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. La Paz has an annual LGBT pride parade each June.

The beach resort towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo are the two largest towns in the Los Cabos area. Cabo San Lucas has some gay nightlife and an annual LGBT pride march. The area also has many gay friendly hotels as well as 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.
