La Paz Car Rental Mini Guide

The Car Rental desks are always busy as public transport here is not great. With this demand comes competition and support of the leading international rental agents such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, and Enterprise to name just a few, and with so much choice of rental car supplier, the range of cars is equally impressive. Whether you want to rent a mini / economy car on a budget for two, or you need to rent a people carrier / MPV, we have makes and models to suit every need including the Toyota Sienna, a very popular 7 seat model to the Toyota Hiace with 15 seat capacity. Premium and SUV rentals include the Jeep Wrangler.

La Paz in Mexico is quite different from La Paz in Bolivia. Located in the Baja California Sur state, La Paz, Mexico, is a beautiful coastal city known for its stunning beaches and vibrant marine life. Here's what you need to know about hiring and driving a car in La Paz, Mexico:

Hiring a Car in La Paz:

  1. Documentation: A valid driver's license (an International Driving Permit isn't typically required but can be handy), a passport, and a credit card for a security deposit are essential.

  2. Insurance: Mexican liability insurance is mandatory. Your home country's auto insurance or credit card insurance might not be valid in Mexico, so ensure you purchase the right coverage when you rent.

  3. Vehicle Type: Depending on your plans, a standard car is adequate for city and major road driving. However, if you plan to explore more remote areas or off-road beaches, consider renting an SUV.

Driving Practices:

  1. Road Quality: The main roads and highways in and around La Paz are in good condition. However, some roads leading to remote beaches or attractions may be unpaved.

  2. Speed Limits: They are generally posted in kilometers per hour. In cities, it's typically 40 km/h, and on highways, it's 80-110 km/h.

  3. Checkpoints: There are occasional military checkpoints. Always stop when requested, be respectful, and have your documentation handy.

  4. Parking: Street parking is available, but it's recommended to use secure parking lots, especially overnight.

Sightseeing and Distances:

  1. Malecón: This is the city's beautiful waterfront promenade, lined with statues, shops, and restaurants.

  2. Balandra Beach: About 25 km north of La Paz, it's known for its turquoise waters and the famous "El Hongo" rock formation.

  3. Espiritu Santo Island: While you can't drive here, it's a short boat trip away and is known for its snorkeling, diving, and sea lion colonies.

  4. Todos Santos: Around an hour's drive (about 85 km) from La Paz, this charming town is famous for its art, culture, and the iconic Hotel California.


  1. General Safety: La Paz is considered one of the safer cities in Mexico. However, common-sense precautions like not leaving valuables in your car and avoiding isolated areas at night should be observed.

  2. Road Safety: While driving, be cautious of animals on the road, especially at dawn and dusk. Avoid driving at night on long stretches outside the city due to reduced visibility and potential hazards.

  3. Emergency Number: In case of emergencies, dial 911.

In summary, La Paz, Mexico, offers a relaxed ambiance with natural beauty to explore. Driving allows you to visit beaches and nearby towns at your convenience. With a little preparation and awareness, your road trip in La Paz can be a delightful experience.
