Every year the residents of La Paz and Bahía de los Sueños prepare for Semana Santa, also known as Easter. As always with Holy Week, it falls immediately after the first full moon following the spring equinox. This year Semana Santa starts on April 24th.
One of the great traditions of the La Paz community is the celebration of Semana Santa at The Bay of Dreams. Each year, many residents of La Paz enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Sea of Cortez, mainly from Holy Thursday until Easter Sunday. The Bay ensures that this event remains an inspiring one for everyone – old and young – by providing security, food and restroom facilities for those celebrating on the beach. Semana Santa is one of the many ways The Bay embraces the warm, friendly, family traditions of La Paz, which, of course, is the Baja Sur’s City of Peace. In this way, and many others, The Bay of Dreams remains a part of The Baja That Has Always Been.
