Indulge in the unhurried charms of this carefree town with an easy-going sightseeing tour that showcases places of interest. With your English-speaking guide leading the way, you're sure to soak up the colorful culture. From the pier, it's just a 12-mile ride to the capital of Baja California Sur. Once you arrive, you'll be escorted inside the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace, known locally as the Cathedral de Nuestra Senora de la Paz. Completed in 1865 atop the ruins of a 140-year-old Jesuit mission, the Cathedral's stone exterior features two bell towers and a small angel carved in stone above the front entrance. Inside, you'll find a number of beautiful stained glass windows and a colorful sculpture of the Virgin Mary with infant. Nearby is the mile-long Malecon, a perfect destination for a seaside stroll and a chance to visit the Artisan Center.

Special Notes:

Please wear comfortable walking shoes as they are some uneven surfaces. There are some inclines and two to three steps at each venue. 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. For a full city tour please refer to tour LAP-100 Highlights of La Paz.
