Description

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

Explore the wonders of La Paz on a four hour guided tour through Baja's desert landscape to the colorful waterfront promenade of the "City of Peace." When you arrive you'll stop at a beautiful boardwalk in town, to have a nice walk and admire the amazing sculptures that symbolize the history and treasure of this land. You will also have free time to explore and shop amongst the many local artisans for handicrafts and souvenirs. Next, you will visit the Museum of Anthropology and History to see exhibits ranging from the history of The Sea of Cortez pearls to the history of Baja California. Continue to explore with your guide at the lovely Cathedral of La Paz. Built in 1861 atop the ruins of a 140-year-old Jesuit mission, the Cathedral's interior boasts beautiful stained glass windows and a sculpture of the Virgin Mary with infant child. Finally, sit back and relax to beautiful scenic coastal views during your return to transportation to your ship.

Special Notes:

There are two flights of stairs at the museum and no elevator is available. Please wear comfortable walking shoes as they are some uneven surfaces and bring a hat, sunglasses, sunblock, camera and cash for any purchases. Please be aware that the air conditioning standard in Mexico is not the same as North America or of that onboard. It may seem warmer than to what you are normally accustomed. Wildlife sightings, while common, are not guaranteed. Should a mass or a celebration be taking place at the cathedral, the entrance may be restricted. Order of stops may vary
