Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Aloha Everyone,

Los Cabos (the capes) is located at the southernmost tip of Baja California Sur and consists of four main areas: Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo, Todos Santos and East Cape. The Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet at the tip of the Península.

Expansion of the airport north of San José del Cabo to handle international flights and jet aircrafts transformed this once remote, sleepy fishing port into one a popular resort destination in Mexico.

Our ship sailed near distinctive rock formations and the famous Cabo arch before we tendered to go on shore.

In a nutshell, Cabo is extremely touristic. For tourists who like to squeeze in as many activities as possible, there are whale watching coastal cruise, dolphin swim and dolphin encounter, outback camel ride, beach horseback ride, Jeep Safari, parasailing, zip line, snorkel and cove cruise, beach resort, sports fishing, and the list goes on.

J.J. and I took a cab fueled by Vicente’s peddling to old town Cabo. Compared to the majority of the ship’s passengers, the two of us are light. We wondered if he adjust fares based on the weigh he had to carry on his bike. For the two of us, $8 US seemed reasonable for about a mile he covered on level ground.

Aloha -- Cathi
