2015 Mexican Riviera Cruise – Day 5

Sunday was the fifth day of our cruise. We docked at La Paz (means “the peace”). Our excursion for the day was a bus trip and tour of Todos Santos (“All Saints”), a town on the other (i.e. Pacific) side of the Baja peninsula.

We boarded a tour bus and drove about over an hour to Todos Santos. Our guide, Guillermo, was entertaining and interesting. We learned some Mexican history and toured the small town. Here we are at the mission.

We found some fun places to shop. The town is known for its artist community.

We had lunch at The Hotel California which may (or may not) be the source for the song by the Eagles back in the 70s.

On the bus ride back, Guillermo shared about one of his loves, cacti. We stopped for some pictures next to the cardón cactus (relative of the saguaro). They are among the world’s tallest with some growing up to 70 feet tall.
