Los Barriles

South of La Paz, the Transpeninsular brushes the gulf at this attractive small town. It is a spectacular spot for wind- and kitesurfing thanks to brisk winter westerlies that average 20 to 25 knots. During whale season you can see spouts close to shore and hundreds of leaping mobula rays in the waves.
