La Paz, The Peace, on this inlet of the spirits on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja, has all the extreme edges of John Steinbeck’s descriptions in The Pearl. And yet there exists a soft and also luminous shimmer here which is irresistible. Perhaps it is the sustained quaintness that calls from the Malecon, or even the steady cool 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 ride from Mazatlan. The sleepy village on the Sea of Cortez sits near the bottom of the Baja peninsula facing an inlet of marine magic which makes up the Espiritu Santo Islands. Sea of Cortez: the World’s Aquarium.
