Description

from The Grand Baja Lobster Tour
The Grand Baja Tour is also known as the "Baja Lobster Tour" and operates every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturdays.

In our Baja Mexico Grand Tour, your adventure begins as we cross into Mexico and visit Tijuana, the fourth largest city in Mexico.

We will go on a cultural sightseeing tour of the area with stops at the Cultural Center, the Tijuana Bullring, the Tijuana Zoo, the Tijuana Tower and then time for some shopping along Avenida Revolution. This street is the main shopping Mecca south of the border with more than 400 different types of shops that will entice you to bargain like the locals for your Mexican curios.

Then it's off to Puerto Nuevo Lobster Village, once a small fisherman town, it is now home to over 50 different restaurants offering the specialty of the house, Puerto Nuevo style lobster meals. This lobster meal is a Pacific Ocean Lobster deep fried to perfection, served with unlimited rice, beans, and a welcome Margarita!

After lunch (included) enjoy some time to relax along the Pacific Ocean as Mariachis serenade you.

After this memorial experience, we will travel to Rosarito Beach which was once the Mexican Hollywood during the 1920's. Now it is a blooming beachside community with endless opportunities to visit the beach, go horseback riding or ATV riding along the sandy beaches.

After Rosarito Beach, we'll travel back to San Diego on a scenic road.

"worst trip ever"
August 2018
10 hours in a SeaWorld shuttle van, could not see well out windows , sitting in super small sets 3 across. The driver/ tour guide spent much of his time on his phone talking and texting while driving. When we got to various stops we let out and were on our own, no tours were offered. Very expensive tour that had no guide or even recommendations. The lunch was the best part, but once again the driver let us out and disappear until it was time to get back in the van.

Marco was a great guide. Some communication around the beach at Rosarito with having to pay for shelter as it was super hot. Also at lunch around having to pay the singers as there were multiples of them. We left my dibs souvenirs on bus and tried to call within minutes but unable to. Sent email. Next day told they were not found but perhaps the bus should have been checked before another tour. Disappointed.

My husband and I went on the Grand Baja Coastal tour from San Diego, which included stops in Tijuana, Puerto Nuevo and Rosarito Beach. Our guide, Juan, was very informative and friendly. Our lobster and margherita lunch was good. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
