Cruise, Sydney to Southampton – Cabo San Lucas (Mexico)

Friday 3 April – Cabo San Lucas

Good Friday and Hot Cross Buns on the breakfast menu before we board a tender to Cabo San Lucas which is on the very tip of the peninsular of Mexico bordering the Pacific and the Gulf of California.

Not a lot really to see at the town although arriving on a public holiday didn’t help. From the ship, the surrounding area is more or less desert and unattractive but at least there is a port and a waterfront to walk around.

Started with a viewing of locals with some freshly caught fish and a walk along the waterfront, watching some acrobats in the air, dodging as much as possible the vendors wanting to sell us anything they happen to possess.

Although we don’t need to buy lunch we did fancy a Margarita drink the alcohol content and size of which was out of this world so we had to have something solid to eat at Mango Cantina on the waterfront.

A lovely way to spend a few hours in an otherwise not exciting town.

Some wonderful yachts in harbour today, the area is popular with local Mexicans and some visitors from various part of the world including a yacht from (possibly) the Cayman Islands which had its own helicopter on board.

The sail away past the Lovers Beach and the Arch were possibly the best part of the day’s visit.

Our second visit to Mexico, one on each side of the country and both ports were less than impressive.

Our first visit (see; http://www.thereadrovers.wordpress.com) in December 2013 to Cozumel was also not really to our taste.  Perhaps there are other places that are better.

Evening entertainment from a good piano player, singer, comedian, Jon Courtney. Well worth watching.

Onwards South to Costa Rica.

  1. Those birds look like they’re smiling while waiting for some fish! Great photos of the rock formations too. We stayed near Tulum on the Yucatan and loved it. If you’re ever around there, Chichen Itza is impressive and the cenotes are perfect for cooling off afterwards.

  2. Yes Sheila, they probably got some of the casts off after we left. Somewhat surprising there weren’t more of them though. Thanks for your comments, much appreciated and will bear in mind the other places if we ever are back in the area.
