I am Paceno

So what are Pacenos? "Paceno" or "Pacena" refers to the people from La Paz, which is the capital city of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. Similar to how "#Angelenos" refers to the people from Los Angeles.
#Pacenos is a term used to identify the residents of La Paz.
It's a way of forming a demonym that is specific to that city, much like how various cities around the world have their own unique names for residents based on the city's name.


So sticking with that term - is Paceno a limited description? For locals only? Or when do you become a paceno. As European expat for 20+ years residing at the Puerto de La Ilusion I wonder. For sure I feel like a Paceno and enjoy the laid back lifestyle of this city on the bay.

I will conduct more research.... even AI is lost with the term, that sure pique my interest. You'll find the outcome of that investigation here....

Having joined the BCSIN (Baja California Sur Info Network) just recently as I appreciate the idea those folks carry I like to contribute and do my share to reflect on our city the way it is, after all, flaws included which every city has, I love La Paz!

Paceno Supreme ;)
