A traveler without observation is a bird without wings. Moslih Eddin Saadi Cabo… has a lot going on considering that it is at the end of a peninsula and the next stop is quite a ways off. There’s whale watching, sport fishing, sun seeking, tequila drinking, shopping and great seafood. Whatever floats your boat. Art and Deb are great friends that we joined on vacation this week and they have been in mourning because five years ago they purchased a time-share condo at a small, quaint property with lots of charm. When they were vacationing here in December they were informed their building was going to be torn down and they would be required to move to the new high-rise property that was being built next door. On this trip we are in the new building ... read more

First place this is not an answer, this is a question, why not? The answer will be, let’s go there! Believe me, this is paradise for hi end people, guys... problems in Mexico don´t exist, it is like you were saying I am not traveling to New York because you can get kill on the Bronx. Come on guys Mexico have 32 states and is larger than US, let’s not show to the rest of the world that we are ignorant when we talk about geography. First place when they say somebody get killed on Mexico border, the next thing you are thinking is, my god I am going to Mexico (cabo) heeyyyy you will be thousands of miles away from the border maybe you are closer right know of the border if you live in ... read more

Again I was up at 5AM, I love watching the ship coming into port. The sun is not up yet so all you can see is the lights as we come in slowly to anchor at 6:24. Since this port is small there is no place to dock so we had to take a tender from the ship. We were anchored by the spectacular arched rocks of Los Arcos where the cool Pacific waters merge with the Sea of Cortez. This area was once attached to mainland Mexico. Millions of years ago a vast crack in the San Andreas Fault created the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific rushed in severing the peninsula from the mainland. We left the ship around 8AM and I was very excited to see a sea lion as we came into ... read more

First of all apologies for delay in posting blog and photo's for the last few days as I have had trouble with Internet acces on the Ship. Photo's are now available for all days. When we awoke today we were already anchored at our final port of Cabo San Lucas and got a glimpse of the rocky area and the town in the distance as we had to get tender boats to this port. We had a quick breakfast and we headed down to the Princess Theatre to await our call. Today we were going on a Zodiac boat which is an inflatable dinghy to do some whale watching. Another fine and sunny day with temps around 27 degrees although it was a bit cool in the morning. We were supposed to be at sea for ... read more

Between the spectacular sunrises and colorful sunsets, Los Cabos has a wide range of natural attractions, including humpback whales, as well as PGA championship golf courses and tournament level fishing. It's magical, with great views and clean beaches. In Cabos you could find great resorts and small boutique hotels for privacy and five star service, be aware since it's there where the Hollywood Celebrities stay as a regular get away for them. ... read more

Ahhh, our last full day here in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! It went pretty well—I woke up at 3am and got a bit sick, but then I went back to sleep and felt pretty decent when I woke up around 8:30am. My dad and I got ready and caught a cab downtown to do some last shopping, and it was awesome! Super hot, but we saw some new stores we’d never been in before. Such as: a mask store, a blown glass store, a pure sterling silver store, a leather store (not so good…they had cow skin/fur as their table covering.. legit, the whole back of the cow :’( ugh), and then the vendor booths. I got some awesome stuff today! A few gifts, and then this hand-painted tile with the Arc of Cabo on it; ... read more

Thursday! Soo…I just walked into the lobby and figured the internet would be back up. Guess what…it’s not. But I’m writing this post on Thursday…so I’m actually caught up for a change. So I woke up at 6 when my family was getting ready for fishing, then I woke again around 9, then slept on and off til 11. I was planning on going to the pool around 9am, but I still felt pretty awful. I had a mix of dizziness, a stabbing stomach pain, a backache, soreness from the horse, and just feeling gross once again. I ate the ham & cheese croissant that my family had gotten for me, and I took it easy and wandered down to the pool around 12pm. The weather was actually overcast for once, so it felt pretty good ... read more

Wednesday! Ohh my gosh, so much fun. We woke up around 9:30? 10? and my dad/sister headed to breakfast, while I stayed in because I wasn’t feeling too hot. From there, we went and sat around the pool for a few hours until 2. I hadn’t eaten all day, so I tried to eat a bit at the lunch buffet, but even a few mussels, plain rice, and fries was too much for me to eat. I started feeling really dizzy and my stomach ached, so I figured it was because of too much sun. We went horseback riding shortly after—the van picked us up at the hotel at 2:25, and after 2 more hotel stops and a one-hour drive through the mountains/deserts, we arrived at a real Mexican ranchero! It was soooo effin’ cool.. again, ... read more

I survived yet another day! Today was a super chill day…we woke up around 9am (Cabo time) and just sat around the pool for the day…until 6pm I think? It was super relaxing, but pretttty uneventful. The best thing about Cabo by far is the weather. The hotel is all open because it rarely rains here. Every day has been blue cloudless skies, breezy, and hot hot hot. It’s just straight up gorgeous. Soooo there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky today, and we just chilled out by the pool. All the male staff here caters to every wish of the female guests, and a few have been calling my sister and I “princesa”, so my dad and sister thought it’d be funny to tell a staff member that I like being called “princesa”. Awkward. ... read more where did I leave off....ahhhh snorkeling. Basically, the waves were huge and rocked us galore; people got sick; I laid down the entire time; and I didn't get my underwater pics. The experience was awesome while it lasted, but I can't wait to snorkel again in clear water that's *gasp* calm. BUT!!! On the way out to the first spot, the boat staff started shouting "Orca! Orca!" and I thought they were seeing dolphins? But it turns out there were a few Orca whales...aka killer whales...swimming! Whale-watching is only December-April, so it's kinda cool we were able to see the whales! At first it was just the fins, but then at one point, the whole first half of the whale was out of the water! I saw the black and white colors and its ... read more
