Cabo San Lucas

Posted Feb 03 2011 12:00am
Our next stop was supposed to be Mazatlan, but due to increased violence in the area our cruise decided to skip Mazatlan and head straight to Cabo San Lucas and add Ensenada instead. Although, obviously we wanted to be safe, Dave and I had a fun shore excursion planned in Mazatlan that we were disappointed we weren't going to get to do.

Dave and I had planned no shore excursions in Cabo. We did this because it was supposed to be the last part of our trip and we wanted to just relax on the beach. Originally we were going to go to Lover's Beach which is pictured above. But after feeling like I didn't want to take yet another boat somewhere else (you can't reach it by land) and didn't want to spend anymore money, we decided to just walk to Madonna Beach. The walk took forever since the boardwalk winds you around and around and we must have been asked by about a million street vendors if we wanted to buy their crap. I SAID, NO THANK YOU!!!! Finally we reached a semi-private area on the beach and just soaked in the sun for a while (yet still dodging street vendors every 5 minutes).

You cannot imagine how uncomfortable I was in this.

Dave does a lot of research when we travel and one of his favorite websites to use is Trip Advisor . For Cabo he found us a small taco stand, Gordo Lele's, just off the beaten path that was highly ranked. It didn't disappoint. Between us we ate 5 tacos and had one bottled water and it cost us $7. Yep SEVEN DOLLARS!!! Plus, Javier "Gordo" himself gave us a good show.

After our tacos we had had about enough Cabo. It was hot and I wanted some ice cream on the ship. As we got in line for the tender to take us back to the ship we looked at the people in line for the Carnival Cruise. They were young, like our age. It made me jealous. More on this in a few days....
