Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your air-conditioned transportation for a scenic drive through the Baja California desert terrain. The varied landscape and indigenous vegetation make for picturesque landscapes, and you'll want to keep an eye out for the outstanding Cardon Cactus, the giants from this desert and consider the world largest cactus.

Your first stop is a local glass-blowing factory. Step inside this colorful wonderland and watch artisans at work. Glass blowing is a true art form, and you will see the centuries old technique firsthand. It is quite mesmerizing to witness, and if you are lucky, a glass hummingbird or flower will be produced right before your eyes. Today, Mexico is well known for affordable, rustic hand-blown drinking glasses, many of them characterized by a cobalt blue band at the rim. The factory employs over 30 artisans and produces as many as 500 one-of-a-kind pieces each day, many made with recycled glass. After touring the factory, take a moment to stop in the well-stocked gift shop so you can bring these lovely, decorative pieces home with you.

Continue your tour at the quaint, authentic Mexican town of San Jose del Cabo. Stroll along the charming streets independently and view the fascinating historical sights. As early as the 1500s, sailors referred to San Jose as a "safe watering place," an important stop for boats that were low on provisions. It was also an area where pirates lay in wait, ready to ambush the Spanish ships that came through the waters loaded with silver and gold. Now, tree lined boulevards mark the shopping district and the town plaza. You will see colorful sidewalk murals painted by schoolchildren and the charming "Zocalo," or town square. The spires of the Church of St. Joseph tower above the town, and its roots can be traced to the San Jose mission, built by Spanish missionaries in 1730.

After seeing so many wonderful sights, the most beautiful vistas are still to come. One of the area's most renowned restaurants offers you a refreshing complimentary beverage while you take in sweeping panoramic views of the Bay of Cabo San Lucas. The restaurant is cantilevered over the water, so you can sit in a nice shaded spot and look out over the bay. You will see the famous El Arco in the distance as well as your ship at anchor.

Prior to returning to port, you will drive around Cabo San Lucas town square, where you can admire the traditional gazebo, the main church, and the houses on the hills. You will have the option to be dropped off in the charming cobblestoned town of Cabo San Lucas for independent sightseeing. Stroll the broad pedestrian promenade, admire the pretty boats in the marina, delight to the music of mariachis and follow your nose to the delicious open-air grills that serve fresh seafood tacos, a signature of Cabo. You are responsible for your returning to the ship, but you'll find the 10-minute walk easy and pleasant.
