“This is, by far, the best coffee in La Paz. They bring it from the coffee regions of México (Veracruz, Chiapas, etc) and roast it to perfection. Also, the vibe at the coffee shop is super chill and they serve awesome food (sandwiches, smoothies, other drinks, etc). A must if you love coffee!!”

“Balandra Beach is the jewel of La Paz. A protected cove with shallow water, it is a great beach for children and families. Beach umbrellas and tables and chairs are available for rent. Balandra Beach is developed; you won't find any beach bars or restaurants, so bring your beverages and snacks with you.”
