Wonder at the World's Aquarium

La Paz means "peace," which you can definitely find while lying on these private white sand beaches. But what distinguishes La Paz from other Mexican destinations is the abundance of exotic marine life, which prompted Jacques Cousteau to call these waters "the world's aquarium." Swimming alongside one of the gentle, school-bus-sized whale sharks is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You can also escape to a kayaking sanctuary on the island of Espiritu Santos to swim with sea lions, or land a trophy marlin in La Paz's celebrated fishing waters. And don't miss the capital city, a seaside gem with the romance and charm of southern Baja with the beauty of less tourism.

  • The Main Attractions of the World's Aquarium

    Of all the amazing creatures that call the seas of La Paz home, there are two that will make the most indelible impressions: whale sharks and gray whales.

    Swim with whale sharks. From September to February, experience the incredible sensation of swimming with whale sharks. Gentle and slow moving, these plankton-eating giants are amazing enough just to watch; swimming in the warm waters with them makes for a once-in-a-lifetime day.

    Whale-watching season. If you're visiting La Paz in mid-January to the end of March, make sure to treat yourself to a day of whale watching. Every year like clockwork, after spending the summer feeding in Alaska, gray whales begin their incredible migration south to Baja California. They travel for two to three months to reach the warmer southern waters where they mate and birth. Large numbers of grays predictably congregate in three bays along Baja's west coast: Laguna Ojo de Liebre, Laguna San Ignacio and Bahia Magdalena. The gray whales will sometimes even swim near small skiffs and allow the human touch.
