Panterra offers day trips to Cabo San Lucas and La Paz. They are two distinctly different cities.
Cabo has been rated as one of Mexico’s top 5 tourist destinations. It is known for its beaches, scuba diving, landmarks and marine life. It has become a heavily trafficked destination for tourists, with numerous resorts and timeshares along its coastline.
La Paz is the capital city of the Mexican State of Baja California Sur. It is an important regional commercial center. Here, one can experience traditional Baja life. Within easy reach of the city are deserted beaches, calm bays and pristine offshore islands. Its abundance of marine life offers amazing and often rare encounters.
La Paz is the gateway to the islands of the Sea of Cortez. It is not a massive beach resort town, with 500 room mega hotels and partying into the night. It offers tourists a laid back vacation with opportunities to leisurely explore the culture, history, land and sea. A great opportunity to explore the area.
The distance between the two cities is a beautiful 2.5 hour drive. La Paz makes a great laidback “day trip” getaway from the hustle and bustle of Cabo and offers pristine islands to explore. The two cities are a great way to explore the best of Baja California Sur.

2018 NEW GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS FOR WILDLIFE VIEWING
Snorkeling with Whale Sharks – Oct 1, 2017 to April 30, 2018
Important info: SEMARNAT, a Mexican government agency, is responsible for tourism in the the whale shark area known as Mogote. They control the number of boats in the area. The captain must call by VHF to request the access before entering the area. SEMARNAT will call back to allow the access, depending on how many boats are in the area and we must wait our turn. At times it can take up to 1 hour waiting in line. Should this happen we will extend the tour to allow guests to have the encounter with the whale sharks. When we are finished the activity, the captain then calls by VHF to advise that we are done, giving the opportunity to other boats waiting. All boats have a tracking device and SEMARNAT is watching who is in and out of the area in real time with a GPS. Certified guides are allowed to take no more than 5 persons at a time in the water with a whale shark and only for a 30 minute period.
Snorkeling with Sea Lions – black out date is from June 1, 2018 to August 31, 2018
During this time the female sea lions are pupping. To respect this time period, it is not possible to swim or dive in Los Islotes or San Rafaelito. We can visit Los Islotes for viewing only and will then move to a reef for snorkelling.
Winter Weather Conditions disclaimer – Due to the unpredictable weather patterns during the winter months we have suspended taking bookings on the Espiritu Santos Island Tour. The tour will resume March 1, 2018.
Cruiseship Bookings – Due to last minute schedule changes of the cruiseships while underway, we are unable to accept any bookings for our day trips.
