I went La Paz for the first time in February 2020 and fell in love with the Malecon. Two weeks after getting home I booked for February 2021. And then... COVID happened. I’m still coming, but I’m wondering what the situation is at this time exactly. Is it open, usable, any restrictions? I ran, walked and ate almost every meal on it last year. The people, the beautiful view... can’t say enough about it.
Also, with mandatory testing to go back to the US, have you ever heard first hand from anyone that was required to quarantine in La Paz and what that might entail? Restrictions on movement, being able to exercise, etc.? And lastly, are the locals and expats still welcoming to CAREFUL, RESPECTFUL, visitors or is there animosity about us coming?
Any information would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
We just went to San Jose del Cabo in mid-January, just last month! So, that's in the same state as La Paz (Baja California Sur). It was still great, even with the COVID restrictions. The weather was a balmy and beautiful 78 degrees the whole time we were there.
We found that everyone was very nice and friendly as always. In the airport as well as any government building or any of the larger chain stores, expect to be told to put on a mask. We kept one with us at all times, just in case. We kept mostly to ourselves with the kids and puttered around. All the restaurants and street vendors, etc. were still open for business. I think you'll still find everyone very welcoming. If you decide to go, I think you'll still have a great time.
