Welcome to Allende Books
Your English-language bookstore in La Paz.
We are conveniently located in the heart of the old historic district, just two blocks off the malecón (waterfront). The beautiful La Paz Cultural Centre is nearby. We have a small cafe, organic coffee and teas, indoor and outdoor seating in the courtyard, and wifi.
Please see the map below for our location and contact information.
Store hours are from 10 am to 6 pm everyday.
We accept pesos, Visa, Mastercard, and US dollars.
In addition to adult and children fiction and non-fiction, we also carry a wide selection of books to help you enjoy your stay in Mexico: field and travel guides, dictionaries, cruising chartbooks, Baja and Mexico history, regional cooking, Mexican interior design and architecture, and culture and arts of Mexico. Please see our Books page for samples of titles from a few of our more popular categories.
If we don't have the book you are looking for, we are happy to special order it for you. And as we are always looking for books, we buy or offer store credits on saleable books.
We also have an eclectic collection of hand-crafted art and gifts from La Paz and elsewhere in Mexico. Please see our Gifts page for samples of a few of these wonderful items.
Additionally, we carry maps of La Paz, the Baja peninsula, and Mexico as well as road atlases for the Baja and Mexico.
We also have a good selection of cards and postcards, so you can keep in touch with loved ones back home.
