Beach Resort in/near La Paz

We've just returned from Los Cabos, or South San Diego as it felt to me, and want to have a nice beach experience in a more Mexican setting. Are there good beach hotels near La Paz? I don't seem to see anything other the the Marina Hotel?

Thanks

You can look at La Concha in La Paz, but you might find someplace like Los Barilles more to your liking if you want a Mexican village feel. I have the name and info on a small casita property there if you are interested. San Jose del Cabo is also more traditional than Cabo San Lucas. Todos Santos is also very charming, and while it is growing, you still have the feeling of a small village. There are several nice properties there as well.

Katd is giving excellent advise. Now the Condos at Los Conchas are very nice but not a real Mexican feel although you are but a short cab ride from El Centro which is very Mexican. La Paz while the state capitol still has a small town feel to me.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the reply. I've read some mixed reviews on La Concha, but it seems like the best option other than the Marina.

Katd, is the casita you mentioned on/near the beach?

Thanks

It is very close to the beach. My best girlfriend has stayed there and loves it! It is quite new-has a very comfy bed (which is important), is very clean, ans a nice kitchen, etc. She goes to Los Barilles frequently, and will eventually move there, so she's pretty well acquainted with the area. (She LOVES to fish-has her own panga there!) She is a nut about cleanliness, so if it passed her inspection, it's CLEAN ;-)

Thanks for the details. Much of what I love about Mexico is watching the ocean from the balcony, all of the birds and occasional marine life, so I guess I'll hold out for that. Thanks for your suggestions.
