Steeped in the flavour of Mexico, the Posada de Las Flores effortlessly combines old-fashioned appeal with the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel that you have come to expect from a Black Tomato selection. Rooms are clustered around the central courtyard where towering palm trees line a quaint pool – the perfect spot to cool off and take in the uniquely Mexican surroundings as a reminder that you are no longer home.
Overlooking the Malecon (seaside walkway), Posada de Las Flores is situated to make the most out of the stunning La Paz sunset. Take a peaceful walk along the Malecon and browse the shops, restaurants and bustling nightlife that run along the shoreline. La Paz’s location on the Sea of Cortez, known as one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet, makes it a hotspot and launching point for ecotourism. Here you have the rare opportunity to swim with the prehistoric giants of the sea – the whale shark.
With an unmistakably local design aesthetic, the spacious rooms at the Posada de Las Flores spare no attention to detail in creating an atmosphere of comfort and tradition. Oversized dark wood furnishings allude back to colonial times and are accented with stone pillars and rustic clay pottery. Bathrooms step up the luxury factor with marble showers and tubs complete with lusciously thick towels – essentially, your own private spa.
