La Ventana is a small fishing village on the shore of the Bay of La Ventana south of La Paz on the eastern side of the Baja California peninsula in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. The village was founded in the early 1940s by the La Paz pearl diver Salome Leon. When pearl diving became unprofitable, Salome brought his large family by burro over the mountains from La Paz to the Bay of La Ventana to found the village. Many of Salome's descendants continue to live, fish, and work in the village.
La Ventana Bay (Bahia de la Ventana) is famous for consistent north winds that blow from November to April, . A combination of El Nortes (northerly fronts) and local thermal winds make it possible to kite almost every day during the winter season. La Ventana is considered one of the world's top kiteboarding destinations.
