Dream Yacht Charter’s newest base in La Paz, Mexico combines stunning desert vistas with world-class sailing in the Sea of Cortez. Our fleet of yachts is anchored at the exclusive Costa Baja resort, which features a stunning full service marina, dive shop, supermarket, and restaurants. In addition, there’s a fine golf course and beach club.
La Paz means “peace” in Spanish, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in this laid back coastal city that lies at 24 degrees 8 minutes north latitude and 110 degrees 18 minutes west longitude.
Although it is the region’s commercial and political center, La Paz remains a relaxed, easy-to-love port with a provincial atmosphere. Set amid ancient laurel trees and coconut and date palms, La Paz is surrounded by ochre colored desert.
Streets radiate from the city’s northwest facing waterfront, the Paseo Alvaro Obregon. Running parallel to Paseo Obregon is the city’s stunning malecon, or waterfront promenade. Several blocks inland is the city’s main square, which features a pink quartz gazebo, tiled walkways and 19th century cathedral.
The city also features an assortment of resort hotels, golf courses, fine restaurants, as well as museums and restored colonial-era buildings worth investigating before you set sail on an unforgettable Dream Yacht Charter vacation.
It is, after all, the Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California, which draws sailors to this peaceful corner of Mexico. Famed French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau once called the waters of this region “the world’s aquarium,” and “the Galapagos of North America,” because of the wide variety of undersea marine life found in calm bays and unspoiled offshore islands.
