Setting sail from Los Angeles

The sprawling, sun-kissed city of Los Angeles needs little introduction. It's an energetic, creative place with cultural riches to match any world city, home to Hollywood glamour, the iconic beaches of Venice and Santa Monica, and affluent, image-conscious Beverley Hills. Yes, there is a lot of traffic on the 12-lane freeways that criss-cross the city, but there are also plenty of green spaces away from the crowds, and a vibrant restaurant scene. The City of Angels may not be everyone's cup of tea, but no trip to California is complete without experiencing this buzzing metropolis.

Arriving in La Paz

La Paz feels more authentically Mexican than most of the other large cities in Baja California, though at the same time it's a cosmopolitan and sophisticated place. It's also a gateway to the fantastic marine life of the Sea of Cortez, famously described by Jacques Cousteau as 'the world's aquarium'.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

It depends where you want to be – at the beach, in Hollywood, or Beverly Hills. At Mundy we think you want to be in Beverly Hills at the Beverly Wilshire.
