Experience a delightful Mexican tradition on this excursion.

A clambake is an authentic seafood specialty that you can try only in Loreto. To harvest Choclata clams, divers swim about 500 yards off shore and then dive down 10-12 feet. An inner tube with a basket in the center serves to keep the harvested clams in water. The clams are placed on a bed of gravel with the shell opening pointing down. More gravel is placed on top, covering the clams. Dry branches of chamizo are spread over the gravel and set on fire. As the fire heats the shells the clams cook and open.

Your taste buds will savor the flavors of a delectable Mexican buffet, including a clambake and a margarita.

The live music will have your feet tapping, and the traditional décor and dancers of the ballet folkloric show will delight you.

Finally, try your hand at breaking a piñata after dessert.
