I don't know, because I can't speak Spanish. I do know that at the Hispanic Mass in our parish, the "kiss of peace" in Spanish is just "La paz", whereas at the "Anglo" Mass, it's "peace be with you". Might be you can't exactly say it the same way in Spanish. I do know there are things in English that you can't say in Spanish.

at the sign of peace we say Paz de Cristo, and the ending of the Lord have mercy is Danos la Paz (grant us peace).
from John 20:26, the priest's greeting: la paz este con ustedes. people respond: y con tu espiritu. (can't do accents)
Whatever the Lord pleases He does, on heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. Ps. 135

Like mentioned, just say "Paz de Cristo" (Peace of Christ) though when responding to "La paz este con ustedes" or "La paz este con vosotros" I've always heard people responding with "Y con SU espiritu" which is the formal way of saying "tu".
