Five star hotels of the likes of "Costa Baja Resort & Spa","Posada De Las Flores Hotel La Paz” and “Las Gaviotas Resort” usually does not charge more than $300 to let out a room on a per night basis during the peak holiday season.
Main Attractions: The sandy sea beaches surrounded by azure blue sea waters is the main reason La Paz manages to attract more than a million tourists every year. The city receives abundant sunshine for almost ten months of the year and this combined with its mostly moderate climate ensure a great time for most visitors. The sea beaches offer great facilities to participate in marine sports like scuba diving, sea kayaking and snorkeling. Freshly caught seafood, particularly the local delicacy of chocolate clams dipped in lime juice is well worth a try. Scuba divers can get a chance to observe majestic marine animals like sea lions, whale sharks and dolphins in their natural habitat by venturing deep inside the ocean. Sport fishing is another popular pastime with visitors and the lucky few among them can hope to catch exotic fishes like swordfish and marlin during an angling expedition. The 18th century “Nuestra Senora de La Paz Cathedral” stands out for its beautiful architecture.
