Avoid tour stands on the streets; they are usually associated with time-share operations. In Todos Santos, pick up a copy of El Calendario de Todos Santos for information on local events. The Gringo Gazette newspaper and the pocket-size Cabo Noche are good guides for the Cabo scene. These publications are free and easy to find in hotels and restaurants throughout the region. Discover Baja, a membership club for Baja travelers, has links and info at its website. Planeta.com has information about ecotourism and environmental issues.
The Baja California Sur State Tourist Office is in La Paz about a 10-minute drive north of the malecón, the seaside promenade. It serves as both the state and city tourism office. There's also an information stand on the malecón (no phone) across from Los Arcos hotel. The booth is a more convenient spot, and it can give you info on La Paz, Scammon's Lagoon, Santa Rosalia, and other smaller towns. Both offices and the booth are open weekdays 9–5.
