CITY GUIDE
BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR, MEXICO

Located in the western part of Mexico on the southern half of the Baja Peninsula is Baja California Sur. This state is the 31st and final state to be established in Mexico and, by population, it is the second smallest in Mexico. There are approximately 712,000 people living within the 28,536 square miles. The largest city and capital of Baja California Sur is La Paz.

Baja California Sur is a major tourist destination especially for those in Mexico and Americans from California and Arizona. Other major industries include mining, agriculture, sport fishing and salt production. Major colleges in Baja California Sur include the Universidad Autonoma de Baja California Sur, Instituto Tecnologico de La Paz, and Universidad Internacional de la Paz.

Baja California Sur has a strong Hispanic and pre-Columbian influence with evidence of human activity dating back over 10,000 years and revolved around four main groups: the Pericúes, the Guaycuras, the Pericús and the Cochimís, three of which still maintain a presence. The Spanish have been an influence in the area since Herman Cortes landed in 1535. Religion, especially Roman Catholicism, of which over 80% of residents consider themselves to be adherents, is a major part of life.

You’ll find the Land’s End, Sammy Hagar’s famous Cabo Wabo as well as the El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve, which is the largest wildlife refuge in Mexico, all within Baja California Sur.

Baja California Sur is located south of the 28th parallel making the state quite hot and considered to be a desert climate. High temperatures in the 90s and 100s are common in the summer and rain is often scarce. Most areas do not receive more than 10 inches of rainfall throughout the year.

Real estate and rentals are moderately priced compared to other parts of Mexico and the southern United States. Most of the population chooses to live near the water where there are many homes, condos and apartments available to suit all budgets and preferences. The population continues to increase considerably as more baby boomers, retirees and Mexican citizens look for vacation homes and new residences in Baja California Sur.

Although there is a lot of space to call home, most of the economic force comes from the shores where mining, tourism and fishing is prevalent. There are plenty of opportunities to embrace the laid back lifestyle or enjoy the wildest parties. As infrastructure improves, so does private investment and interest.
