La Paz for 20 somethings

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic vacation at Playa del Carmen. We'd like to find a town similar to this but closer to us (California), so we decided to do some research into Baja. What's important is that we don't experience a cancun type atmopshere, but a more sophisticated, European feel, that still has a nice nightlife- not a wet t-shirt place. La Paz seems like it could fit the bill, what do you think?

LaPaz is a large, working city-the capital of Baja Sur. There are some good hotel/resorts there and it is nothing like Cancun. You might also check into San Jose del Cabo-it's a charming town, with a more Mexican feel than Cabo San Lucas, but you have access to everything in the area. Cabo is also nothing like Cancun! While there are more tourists there than in San Jose, it's still laid back, with nice nightlife, etc. Also, look into Todos Santos, on the Pacific side! It is lovely, small, and charming. You may still be able to find air to SJD in the low $300's and there are many good tour operators that have some great deals now!
