Cabo San Lucas - Mexico - Port 1 Day 3

It was great to hit our first port of Cabo - WOW what a place, and after a few cold days at sea from San Diego it was a very warm welcome we received as we anchored in Cabo.  Post cards really don't do this place justice.  

Tendering in from our ship, was like a breath of fresh air for us, it was alive (unlike the ship), music playing, people everywhere, vendors selling their goods, drinks aplenty - this is what we had come for and Cabo certainly didn't disappoint.

The excursion we choose was the Pirate Ship Historical Sail & Snorkel, there were only 10 of us on this excursion and everyone was out for some fun - of course the open bar helped in that area as we were immediately offered Margaritas, and Tropical Rum & Tequila Punches.

The crew was fantastic and enjoyed playing pirates as we sailed around Lands End with the pirate sail hoisted and boat well decorated for the days theme.  Well done everyone, we had such a fantastic time and it was great fun.

The snorkeling was a different experience with life vests on, but it did give a nice way of floating around without using too much energy.  There were lots of sea lions, stingrays and some small colorful fish, probably not as great as other places we have snorkeled, but the environment and waters where so beautiful, that it didn't really seem to matter.

Can highly recommend this tour if you are in Cabo -  We had a blast and they ensure you get some great photos of your time and also put them on a disc to help remember your day with them.  Great Value, Great Fun!

After all the fun and drinks we had on this trip, we did decide to hit the main center to do a little shopping, our stock standard items of Christmas Decorations and T Shirts, sit in a nice restaurant and get our first taste of the local food and have our first Pina Colada for the trip.  A few dollars extra and you could even get serenaded which was a really nice touch.  We didn't stop here until Noon, so it was after 4pm when we sat down for our late lunch, but with the ship not leaving until 11pm we had plenty of time to soak up the hustle and bustle atmosphere in the shops and eat a long slow lunch/dinner.  We had heaps of fun here and highly recommend it as a top spot in Mexico.
