Posada de las Flores La Paz
Posada del la Plores is a small hotel defined by authentic Mexican style and artifacts, right on the seafront in La Paz, Baja California.
This intimate and most attractive ochre-washed property is situated on the La Paz's coastal promenade, the Malecón, close to the centre of the capital of Baja California. Refurbished and refreshed in 2016, it's one of the most genuinely Mexican properties in town: the sofa-crammed lounge and handful of guest rooms and suites are tastefully furnished with Mexican artwork and rich locally woven textiles. Each guest room has an individual iconic feature, such as antique wooden furniture, Mexican pottery, a marbled wall or a palm tree growing through the ceiling.
The hotel’s second floor restaurant, overlooking the promenade, has unparalleled views over the ocean. Potted plants are liberally scattered over the grounds of property which features a stone fountain while other facilities include a sun deck with loungers and a patio where breakfast is served.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Most memorable experience? “It's impossible to pick any individual aspect; but a number of experiences stood out: the visit to the "voodoo" church at St Juan Chamula (extraordinary and unexpected), the visit to the shrine of the Madonna of Guadalupe on the way to Teotihuacan in Mexico City (similar, and helped understand Mexican history), Palenque (the most beautiful and atmospheric of the pre-hispanic sites), and swimming in the three cenotes at Cuzama near Merida, which we arranged ourselves.AR, Gospel Oak
I loved the mexico city walking tour - really felt part of the city. Great restaurant recommendations too! Also loved everything about San cristobel!MK, London
Highlights: Discovering and enjoying the Mexican culture and despite pre visit warnings, being so surprised that Mexico City is nothing like as dangerous a place to visit as I had expected.Cw, Macclesfield
A trip into the Sian Kaan biosphere with a community based tour company was a beautiful way to celebrate a 14th birthday for one of our girls.</p>CL, Stafford
Highlights?: Probably seeing the Diego Rivera murals in Mexico City although it is hard to pick out as there were so many moments that we loved. A boat trip on the lake of Bacalar was also amazing.JT, Thames ditton
Swimming in the cenotes, chichen itza, Mexican foodVH, Chorley
Highlights?: Tours of Mexico City & Chichen Itza, followed by our stay at Tulum.ER, Surbiton
It is very difficult as pretty well everything was memorable, but if I have to pick something, then the boat trip along the river to Yaxchilan takes some beating. Weather, scenery, wildlife, excitement of a fast boat, and the archaeological surprises at the end ….RB, Eastleigh
All of the tour guide experiences were memorable and we loved Mexico city. There was so much to see and do in such a short week. I would love to do it again, but over a two week period and over the winter months.JR, Castle Douglas
"Mayan sites were really fantastic. Teotihuacan was excellent and Mildred was a very good guide. She enhanced the day."SP, London
Highlight?: Calakmul, its a long journey to get there ( 2 hours from Xpujil alone ) so plenty of anticipation, not busy and complete freedom to walk around as opposed to other sites. Did actually see some monkeys in the trees too.DB, Teddington
Highlights: Palenque site. The beach at TulumJB, Leatherhead
Highlight?: The totality of it. Seeing different parts of the country. The mixture of food. ruins and art was just about spot on.KJ, Harlow

We liked the variety of our trip - ancient Mayan ruins, real Mexican towns and people, and beautiful beaches. It was wonderful to access Chichen Itza from the grounds of Mayaland Resort and get in there early and before it was too hot without any crowds. We loved swimming in Dzitnup Cenote.PR
Highlights 1. Cenotes at Cuzamá - horse drawn cart through countryside to reach them 2. Celestun - flamingoes, lobster and ceviche on the beach 3. Uxmal Ruins- less people than Chichen and no vendors everywhere 4. Tulum Sian Biosphere - walk through Muyil ruins to reach biosphere route to the boat which you hire to cross the lagoon to the the Lazy River floating through the lagoon in natural water currents - stunning...5. Food everywhere we went was amazing; Kind Mexican people esp the Mayans; clean loos (didn't expect it but was often surprised by how clean they were) 6. Hire car gave great flexibility - easy driving and no problems at all.VRR, Sittingbourne
Highlights?: The church in San Juan Chamula Visiting Tonina en route from San Cristobal to Palenque. A beautiful setting, only a handful of other visitors and complete freedom to roam.DW, Stone
Magical memories were created
"We feel as if we have a million magical memories that will last forever - sunsets over the Caribbean sea, ruins in the midst of the jungles, seas of pink flamingoes, crocodiles nestling on the banks of the Canyon Del Sumida. We were nervous as non Spanish speakers but we felt so supported without that horrible feeling of being over organized. Thank you again.”LH, Pinner
We enjoyed every aspect of the trip. The Sumidero Canyon possibly stands out as the most memorable part. Spectacular.AP, Canterbury

Most Memorable Moment?: So many! Maybe the balloon ride?KFD, London

Whale watching in San Jose Del CaboCS, Epsom
Most Memorable Moment?: The awesome encounter with a grey whale mother and calf.WS, London
Most Memorable Moment?: Lots of highlights but probably street food and archaeology in Mexico City, fiestas in Oaxaca, Hotel Esencia, cenotes and hacienda trip in Merida (and the hotel). We also found a great restaurant in SAN Christobal.KE, London
