What You Can Expect

Day Trip to La Paz from Cabo San Lucas

Visit markets that are off the beaten path

Departing from your hotel in Cabo San Lucas by minivan, the first stop on your full-day tour is the Tropic of Cancer. Snap photos of the monument marking the spot in Baja California Sur before continuing the scenic drive along a secluded coastal road.

Browse arts and crafts and shop for typical Baja sweets at a local market en route to Barriles, a fishing village that boasts panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. Sate your appetite on arrival in the picturesque town of San Bartolo, where you can purchase burritos, empanadas, tamales and more.

Continuing through the old mining town of El Triunfo, your guide points out the smokestack designed by Gustave Eiffel. See other architectural attractions before descending upon La Paz. Start with a walk along the Malecón then head to remote Coromuel beach with its inviting crystal-clear waters.

After you’ve worked on your tan, your guide takes you to visit La Paz Cathedral and sets you free to explore the historic center on your own. After lunch at Bismarcito restaurant, set off for Todos Santos and its famous Hotel California, where you can purchase a mouthwatering margarita.

Your small-group tour ends with return transport to your Cabo hotel.

My wife and I have taken this type of excursion in other countries to get an overview of an area. And then later, explore in more detail on our own with a car. This is a long day, however you are not driving. And there are frequent stops. Antonio was our guide. He had a cooler of bottled water for the 6 of us. And asked our preferences and gave us options. For example, we had an opportunity to swim in La Paz versus touring its downtown. We packed a lot in. So that when we explored later on, we felt familiar with the areas we visited, and new where to stop if we need to get food or a restroom break. And during the trip, Antonio provided us with the history of the areas we were visiting. Would recommend to those of you skittish about driving and wanting to get out of the Cabo area to explore.

Danny was an awesome tour guide. Time spent swimming at the beach in La Paz was a highlight for me. Lunch was great too. Great tour.

This is a long day trip. We were picked up at 6:30 a.m. and dropped off back at our hotel after 8:00 p.m. With that being said, we did enjoy the overall experience of the trip. I thought our tour guide Alex was extremely knowledgeable on the history of all of the areas we visited. I am going to say that I would recommend this trip, but here are some thoughts to go along with it. You are taken immediately to a jewelry store upon arrival at La Paz, where you are talked to about the history of pearls, and some pressure to purchase jewelry. The trip is disorganized as to what you are doing in which town at which stop. If you like things very structured, this is probably not a good trip for you. If you don't mind just flying by the seat of your pants a bit, you will enjoy the trip.

I have taken so many great tours on Viator and I hate to leave a bad review... but here goes. We did not enjoy this tour at all. It was very very long and I felt like they almost made up stuff to do so they could call it a tour. Im sorry I know that sounds harsh but really its true. The buss they picked us up on was horrible. Small, packed and cramped - one couple even got off the buss down the street from their hotel because it was so cramped. Danny did his best but we could not hear him in the back. Had no mic or at least one that worked. The tropic of cancer was just a silly stop as was the one with the Eiffel Tower guy. It was an abandoned mill.... like I said there was nothing interesting about it that I would build a tour around it. I wanted to love LA Paz and I think it is a great town, but it was too cold for the beach and there was no where to get a drink so we all just sat there looking at each other why we stopped here in the first place! Nothing was open and it was freezing! So we then went to the jewelry store for a pseudo pearl demonstration but again it was just an attempt to sell us very over priced jewelry. We left and went down the street for a beer and to walk around. I feel that there was more to the town that we could have seen and we came all that way to do.... pretty much nothing. Next we set off for an hour drive in that horrible van to Todos Santos. The best part by far of the tour. Hotel California was there and the town itself was really cute. My favorite. but we only had 30 minutes there. Such a shame! Lunch was really nice. Do yourself a favor and skip this tour and take a much shorter one to Todos Santos or La Paz.
