12:00 AM Baja Mexico Grand Tour 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 we'll spend some time shopping along Avenidad Revolución. This street is the main shopping mecca south of the border with more than 400 different types of shops that will embolden you to bargain like the locals for your Mexican curios.

Then it's off to Puerto Nuevo Lobster Village. Once a small fisherman town, this spot is now home to over 50 different restaurants that offer the specialty of the house: Puerto-Nuevo-style lobster. This lobster meal is a Pacific Ocean lobster deep fried to perfection. The meal also includes unlimited rice, beans and a welcome Margarita!

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

After this memorable experience we will travel to Rosarito Beach, which was once the Mexican Hollywood during the 1920s. Now it is a blooming beach-side community with endless opportunities to visit the beach, go horseback riding, or roam on ATVs along the sandy beaches.

After Rosarito Beach, we'll travel back to San Diego.
