Sounds like a book or a movie, but thats what is know by, by most of the locals who live in La Paz. It is located as you drive North out of town on the way to the airport. It used to be white, now a brown color, maybe to match the dust in the area. And now of all... More

Still looks like a whale's tail to me, but it is distinctly La Paz! Without the monument there would be far fewer La Paz t-shirts to sell...

This is an impending landmark and a beautiful piece of art!

A perfect way to be greeted to the fair city of La Paz. And a perfect symbol for a peaceful, welcoming place to live. It always gives me a thrill to see it as we drive in on Mexico 1 from San Diego.

It's been almost three years since I last drove away from La Paz, passing the Dove of Peace along the way. This monument was designed by a local artist (whose name now escapes me), who was employed as a graphic designer for the Department of Public Health. It is known locally as "La Cola de la Ballena," because, although it... More
