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.

Most Memorable Moment?: So many! Maybe the balloon ride?KFD, London
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
As a first time traveler to Central America, I can't stress enough how pleasurable Journey Latin America made Mexico for us. 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 flamingos, 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 againLH, Pinner
Highlight of your Trip?: Climbing the Pyramid of the sun, Punting at Xochimilco was wonderful.AHC, Blaydon-on-tyne
Most Memorable Moment?: Hard to say as we enjoyed every part of our trip. We loved the mixture of ancient sites and other attractions so we did not feel overwhelmed by one type of attraction.DS, Paisley
“My sister summed it up by saying that there was nothing that she would have changed, the holiday was perfect. Mexico was a delight, we had never been before, the people sincerely friendly and helpful, the service as great but everything exceeded expectations. My sister and the children thought that the cenotes were amazing as they were such a surprise but we loved it all.”RN, Ascot
Swimming in the cenotes, chichen itza, Mexican foodVH, Chorley
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
The train from El Fuerte to Divisidero was great - good views with the ability to take photographs through open windows, good food, comfortable seats.JDL, St Neots
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
Highlights: Boat trip to Yaxchilan - jungle and ruins were great. Gardens and pool at Hacienda Chichen were lovely. Cuernavaca was a lovely town and we enjoyed Robert Brady museum….San Cristobal - also lovely”CW, London
Specific memorable event: Having climbed up the large pyramid at the Mayan site, within the Calakmul biospere, not only did we love the impressive view across the tree canopy, but we were greeted by the amazing sound of 3 groups of howler monkeys calling to each other across the tree tops. The birdlife there was also wondeful to see. Overall memorable part: the Mexican people - genuinely friendly, helpful and patient.LG, St Albans
"Mayan sites were really fantastic. Teotihuacan was excellent and Mildred was a very good guide. She enhanced the day."SP, London
Highlights?: The serenity at Uxmal and the delightful city of OaxacaMF, London
Oaxaca and Mexico City were the high spots for us. We found the Mexicans we met to be welcoming and helpful. We ate some amazing foot in Oaxaca where we also loved the botanical gardens. We loved learning about the history, architecture, politics and culture of this fascinating country.DS, Tunbridge Wells
Most Memorable Experience: The visits to sights and cities open our eyes to a culture that is underrated in Europe. Security is perceived as a problem in Mexico. Yes there is a noticeable police presence, in comparison with the UK, but we never felt threatenedMC
Our experience of travel in Mexico with Journey Latin America has been excellentSB Harrow
Most memorable aspect: “All the visits to temples and pyramids. With very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant guidesJB Wandsworth
Highlights?: Too many! Probably seeing Uxmal, the Tiger Egret, swimming in Cenotes (various), Chichen-Itza at dawn and visiting Frida Kahlo's house.AA, Newport
Visiting the Mayan villages outside San Christobal de las Casas.CM, Kingston upon thames
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
Most memorable experiences: "The Archeological sites, the friendly guides and amazing beach in Tulum."LS, Ruislip
Visiting UxmalDS, Ware
There were many highlights: the beautiful beach on our first morning in Cancun, the boat ride among the flamingos at Celestun, the sight of the Magicians Pyramid at Uxmal and the climb up the Great Pyramid there ( although not the descent, which was very vertiginous!). We loved the city of Merida, and having a Sunday at leisure there was very well planned by Sophie. We walked the Paseo de Montejo, open only to bikes and pedestrians, visited the Museum of Anthropology, then had a late lunch in Santa Lucia park watching the locals dancing. Later we watched them again in the evening dancing opposite the Cathedral in Plaza Mayor. Great fun, we loved it all. We also has a fantastic visit to Ek Balam on our way to Tulum, which was one on our Mayan Archeological highlights.AF, Merriott

"The tours provided were everything that we hoped, with the tour guides very good."GS, Rayleigh
“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 Mérida, which we arranged ourselves.”AR, Gospel Oak
"Many highlights: The views at Uxmal. Waking up with a view of the observatory at Chichen Itza from our hotel bed. The excellent guides. The friendliness of the staff (and impromptu language lessons) at Petit Lafitte."TR, Farnham
