Cabo San Lucas

I haven't been many places but I have at least gotten out. One of the places I went on my jazz cruise was Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas. If you've never been on a cruise, I highly recommend taking one. This was my third cruise and I could go again and never leave the boat... as long as it is docked off shore in Cabo. It is such a truly beautiful place and it is so relaxing to just sit on deck and watch everything going on around you.

It was early in the morning when the ship slowly moved down the Peninsula, maybe about eight. We'd already been up, had breakfast and stood on the deck watching the coastline move by, enjoying the beautiful day and the cool breeze. It had just rained a little the night before. Imagine being on a cruise in the rain but I just loved it!

At the end of the penisula were these amazing rock formations jutting out of the water and there were already people out on the water in their boats.

Cabo San Lucas doesn't have a port so the ship docked off shore and we took a shuttle boat ashore. The first picture is of the boat as we sailed away.

When we came back we ate lunch on deck and watched all of the activities around us - parasailing, jet skiing, boating and you could even see the horse back riding tours. There is so much to do in Cabo on and off land including many off-roading tours in jeeps or sand rails, or you can do absolutely nothing at all!

Every time I look at these pictures I talk myself into wanting to go again.

Very beautiful! Though the architecture on the Island seems pretty messed up, That doesn't look like homegrown style, huh? But other than that it sure looks like a place to be! Cheers, Klaus

Jayne - Thanks. It really was beautiful and it was a perfect day!

Klaus - As for the architecture, it was Mexico and that's all I can say and going ashore you're bombarded with tour guides wanting you to buy their boat tours. It was overwhelming but the ocean and the view... outstanding!
