If you could bottle the beauty that is found in La Paz you’d make a mint. In fact, many already try to do just that with a little souvenir snow globe made of sand. Still, this wonderful little town’s beauty is irreplaceable. The capital of Baja California, and, nestled into a little cove on a bay, it enjoys a sunny and warm climate with a nice ocean breeze. People come from the world over to see the ancient cave paintings, enjoy the town’s quaint Spanish-influenced pueblo architecture, or experience world-class water activities. If you’re thinking about heading down to La Paz, Mexico, go.

Numerous (15) religious structures dot the Historic Center of Zacatecas, including a grand cathedral decorated in the Baroque style.
