There are many activities that you can do in the city, our recommendation is to start by visiting some of the best-known points of interest such as the Cathedral of Our Lady, with a unique architectural style different from European cathedrals. You can walk along the Malecón, a large promenade by the sea, where you will find many restaurants and cafes to rest and enjoy your time. If you are a bit more adventurous, we recommend you finish your visit swimming with sea lions, which inhabit Espiritu Santo Island, and end up at Balandra beach, about 25 km from La Paz, where you will find one of the most famous attractions of the city, a natural pool of warm water, shallow and protected from the wind.

Location 2: Mazatlán
