This region of Mexico is a true retreat. You don't come here to visit its cities or Rush to museums. Here, nature takes over and the elements are at their best! The deserts impose themselves and the contrast between the heat of the coasts and the cold of the summits is astonishing. The state extends from the American border on a tongue of land bordered on one side by the Pacific, its powerful waves and wild beaches, and on the other by the Sea of Cortés, its whales in winter, its turtles and its opalescent waters. In between? Beautiful deserts, national parks, old Jesuit missions and lots of cacti! The colonial San Ignacio, a walk along the «malecon» of La Paz and the small town of Loreto will gently reconnect you to reality.
