Mexico and Costa Rica await as you sail from San Diego to the storied waters of the Sea of Cortez. Sip smooth, wood-aged artisanal Jalisco reposado and añejo tequilas distilled from local family distilleries. Learn about sea turtle habitats and the effects of human encroachment during a visit to a Loreto sanctuary. Wander among the shadowy stone recesses of 3,000-year-old Izapa Mayan ruins. Before this remarkable 15-day journey ends you’ll have opportunities to snorkel among puffers and yellow butterfly fish near Costa Rican beaches and venture inland to dense and misty cloudforests, unique havens for almost 20 percent of our planet’s butterfly species.
