Beautiful old Mexican home built in the late 1890's. Location, location, location!

We are 2 blocks from the Malecon on Madero and Hidalgo. In the heart of the historical district. The best restaurants, coffee houses, markets, art galleries. We are across the street from the La Paz landmark 'Vaca' supermarket. Walk to everywhere. You can hear the bells from the Cathedral just 2 blocks away.

The property is composed of 2 buildings that rent SEPARATELY or you can rent the whole property. The main house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a large well equipped kitchen, a very large living room and outdoor living area. That is one rental.

We were a group of 7 staying at Casa de la Vaquita. This was our first time traveling to La Paz. Traditionally, our group had gone to Puerto Vallarta and really enjoy the traditional Mexican-Spanish style homes and a place quiet and close to town...More
