I was in Cabos in March 2007 , We took a historial tour to La Paz . It was very interesting , not commerically like Cabos. It is the capital of Baja . There is a museum there, if you are history buff. There was large Mission church to see. On a small scale , it is similar to Pureto Vallerta in beach front area. Truly Mexican. If you can get a tour to Tortos Santo the art colony , that would be intersting. " A Hotel California" is there. Our tour guide said best Margartias in Mexico across the street from the Hotel California . I did not shop in La Paz but I am sure the prices would be better than Cabos San Lucas as it is not many tourists .
