Papeete to Puerto Vallarta
Indulge in spectacular South Pacific sunsets as you visit tropical Tahitian rainforests and the sundrenched shores of California and Mexico during this unforgettable 23-day transpacific crossing with overnight port stays in Loreto and Cabo San Lucas.  Savor misty, memorable moments exploring Tahitian lagoons and a 12-day sailing across warm South Pacific waters between Tahiti and  bustling San Diego. Wander Balboa Park, dine on fresh and trendy California-style fusion cuisine, and get close to diverse wildlife at the world famous San Diego Zoo. Spend more time swimming with dolphins or relaxing on warm sandy beaches during an overnight stay in Cabo San Lucas. Snorkel above coral and bright angelfish near the white-sand beaches of San Rafaelito on the marine-life rich Sea of Cortez outside La Paz. Wander the weathered stone corridors of San Francisco Javier, a mission built in the mid-1700s that remained the best preserved on the Pacific Coast, then sample spicy and delightful culinary spreads of flautas, tacos filled with carnitas, and other authentic Mexican dishes.
