Or just relax and do nothing at all on an endless white sand beach and get reacquainted with your inner self.

With a privileged climate, you can enjoy La Paz year round. The average temperature during 8 months of the year is 25° C (77° F). The hot summers let you enjoy the beaches and water sports, while the mild winters are ideal for long evening strolls under a spectacular starry sky.
