Looking for a new Mexican destination?

If you’ve already seen Elizabeth Taylor’s house in Puerto Vallarta, toured the market in Mazatlan and admired the rows of immaculate white yachts tied up in Cabo, Alaska Airlines thinks you’re not alone.

That’s why the Sea-Tac-based airline is enhancing its schedule to a less trodden destination, La Paz. That’s La Paz, the capital of Mexico’s Baja California Sur, not the capital of Bolivia.

The airline started flying there two years ago three times a week, and now it’s adding two more flights weekly. Only Tuesdays and Fridays are missing a round trip from La Paz to Los Angeles.

The city of about 200,000 residents is not as visitor-oriented as the more well-known Mexican resorts.

But it features fish and whale watching and diving in the Sea of Cortez and exploration in the surrounding desert.
