Tour Overview

Grab your sombrero and your appetite and get ready for a delightful and delicious Mexican tradition, an authentic clambake.

The festivities begin when you board a taxi van for a 5 minute ride to meet your fellow fiesta partiers to head out to the clambake. A clambake is an authentic Mexican seafood specialty exclusive to Loreto. To harvest the "chocolate" brown-shelled clams, divers swim about 500 yards off shore and then dive 10-15 feet. An inner tube with a basket serves to keep the harvested clams in the water as they are collected, ensuring that you are sampling the freshest the sea has to offer.

Once on shore, the clams are placed on a bed of gravel with the shell opening pointed down, and dry branches of chamizo are spread over the gravel to infuse the flavors. Enjoy a welcome traditional margarita, savor a delectable buffet filled with local delicacies, including a clambake. Music, traditional dancers and a piñata complete the festivities. Music and song enhance the experience, and dancers from the Ballet Folklorico perform for you in their colorful garb. The music will have your toes tapping, and after enjoying a dessert, it's time to try your hand at the piñata. Take a few whacks at this playful party favor, and maybe you'll be the one to unleash its belly of candy and treats! Olé!
