LA PAZ

La Paz was founded by Hernan Cortez in 1535. It has been the capital of the State Baja California Sur since 1829, after the destruction of the then capital, LORETO by a hurricane and is lately becoming a favorite spot for tourists.

This is due to its beautiful serene beaches, wonderful restaurants, great shops offering duty-free items and excellent diving and sport fishing activities. With the longest history of any settlement in the Californias, La Paz has probably had the most turbulent one. But in spite of its challenges, it has managed to evolve from a "sleepy" little port into a vigorous, modern state capital.

La Paz and the surrounding area is a paradise for ecotourists . Among the best worldwide scubadiving destinations, more than 25 first-class dive sites surround the Bay of La Paz, the islands of Espíritu Santo, San Jose and Cerralvo. Cabo Pulmo, in the East Cape region, has recently been declared a marine reserve and harbors one of North America's only living coral reefs, home to numerous exotic marine species.

dolphin and impressive numbers of sharks, especially hammerheads, lure diving enthusiasts here. Sport fisherman have long known that the deep-water canyons and sea mounts harbor an abundance of species ranging from big-game sport fish to light-tackle speedsters. La Paz possesses an enviable geographic location providing an ideal starting point for innumerable natural history land forays. Bird watching, exploring unspoiled white sand beaches and treks to the cave paintings in the Sierra de San Francisco and the surrounding desert provide wildlife lovers a unique opportunity to observe nature in its pristine natural state. La Paz has endured numerous conquerors, pirates, missionaries and entrepreneurs, creating a flowery past full of risk, daring and lore. Its historical essence is surrounded by mystical charm, reflected in the rich culture and the legendary crimson sunsets that adorn its skies day after day.

WHALES

Each year, the longest known mammal migration on earth commences as the gray whales undertake an arduous 5,000 miles journey from the frigid waters of the Bering sea to the three primary warm water lagoons off the Baja California Coast. Here they will court, mate and give birth to their calves conceived the previous spring. In addition to the Grays, Sperm Whales, Orcas, Humpbacks, Blues, Pilots and Fin Whales frequent the surrounding seas attracting droves of whale-loving travelers who, on occasion, get close enough to touch the magnificent leviathans.
