La Paz, The Peace, on this inlet of the spirits on the southern end of Mexico’s Baja, has all the extreme edges of John Steinbeck’s depictions in The Pearl. And yet there exists a soft and also luminous shimmer here which is irresistible. Likely it is the preserved quaintness that calls from the Malecon, or maybe the steady quiet that comes from the Sea. Locate La Paz just shy of 1,000 miles from San Diego, CA or a 16-hour over night ferry trip from Mazatlan. The sleepy city on the Sea of Cortez is situated near the foot of the Baja peninsula facing an inlet of underwater magic that makes up the Espiritu Santo Islands. Sea of Cortez: the World’s Aquarium.
