It's no coincidence that La Paz means "peace" in Spanish, as this tourist center with a small-town vibe offers a tranquil atmosphere and blissfully pleasant weather throughout the year.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Isla Espiritu Santo and Malecon. Spend the 15th (Sun) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. And it doesn't end there: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, stop by Ceramica Ibarra, and take a leisurely stroll along Playa El Tecolote (Tecolote Beach).
