The USS Lake Champlain (CG 57) is anchored off the coast of Los Cabos. Its presence in Baja California Sur is due to the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States. The U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, led by Consul William Swaney and Captain Steven Folley, toured the ship with Los Cabos authorities.

USS Lake Champlain is a Ticonderoga-class cruiser, one of a series of missile cruisers in the United States Navy. She was built by Ingalls Shipyard with a length of 567 feet, a beam of 55 feet and a draught of 34 feet.

On 25 April 1987, Mrs Everett Pyatt, wife of the Under Secretary of the Navy for Shipbuilding and Logistics, christened the ship by breaking a bottle of champagne against the bow.

This visit is part of the activities to celebrate the bicentennial of diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States. The two governments, the private sector, NGOs and various partners have organised more than 200 events in the two neighbouring countries to celebrate this important event.
