About This Day

Visiting Mexico with kids and looking for things to do in La Paz (Baja, Mexico)? The Museo de la Ballena (Whale Museum) is a great way to break up a day in La Paz with kids. Start your day with coffee and pastries at Big Sur Café Organico. Then, head to Museo de la Ballena to learn about whales, sharks and other local marine life. After the museum, treat everyone to delicious Mexican ice cream and burn off energy at the playground across the street.
