Cruise - Cabo & Mazatlan

Day 3 – Cabo San Lucas
We sailed into Cabo early on Tuesday and anchored in the bay. The view from our balcony was great, Lover’s Beach and Lands End. A tender from the ship took us into the marina and dropped us off exactly opposite of where we hoped to spend the day on Medano Beach.

It was a bit of a walk past vendors and bars, through the shopping mall and down the beach to a great little beachfront café equipped with palapas and padded double lounge/beds and bean bags. Didn’t take us long to get settled with some cool drinks.

It was fun watching locals try to sell their wares; hats, tshirts, jewelry, whistles, dresses and henna tattoos. We each got a tattoo (washes off in 2 weeks) and Pat got a wide brimmed hat to shade his fair skin.

Instead of walking back t the tenders, we made use of a water taxi. Much more pleasant trip. The afternoon was spent on deck napping to the sounds of Caribbean music.

We tried to attend the evening entertainment, and illusionist, but left after a few minutes. It wasn’t great. A 70’s music name that tune contest in the Schooner Lounge was fun. Then off to dinner.

I must say, the food on this cruise is just ok. So far there have been no stand out meals. The soft serve frozen yogurt by the pool is fantastic though.

Day 4 – Mazatlan
I sit in our cabin after a round of golf at Estella Del Mar here in Mazatlan. It was a nice resort course along the ocean. Pat played really well, eagled a hole with a shot out of the sand. My game wasn’t great, but we had fun.

It’s been over 25 years since we were last in Mazatlan and lots has changed. We’re thinking we probably wouldn’t select it as our next vacation spot.
