La Paz Marine Resources

MARINAS

Marina Palmira (we prefer) a little further from town on the north end (still walkable) but quieter, less busy than Marina De La Paz where all the anchor-outs are transiting to shore, plus charter panga traffic. Center of town is about a 30 minute walk from the marina. Palmira also has a free shuttle into town, 3 times a day. Cab rides back are aprox. $5 from downtown.
