We had an amazing excursion called SEA SAFARI - HIDDEN BEACHES & SNORKEL, which we arranged from our cruise ship. It was with the 2nd party vendor, Vallarta*Cabo Adventures. Our first stop is at the remote seaside village of Quimixto. We landed our inflatable speed boat right on the beach (we had some rough water, and the transfer to the dock was very adventurous) we then enjoyed a leisurely horseback ride through the jungle to arrive at a breathtaking waterfall. We had the most delicious nachos with cheese we ever had. We then cooled off with a refreshing swim in the waterfall. Then we continued our boat ride to Pizota, a remote fishing village. After enjoying a freshly prepared buffet lunch (and unlimited drinks), we relaxed on this beautiful beach. Lucky enough we were able to seem a couple of Gray whales from our inflatable boats.
We spent the day at the exclusive El Cid Marina Beach Club where we enjoyed all inclusive food and drinks. Now we definitely enjoyed the all you can drink portion of this, but fthe ood we ordered off the menu. Only because the ribs on the menu looked so good, and they were. We drove along the longest seaside boulevard ( malecon) of Mexico in an air conditioned motorcoach on the way to the beach club. The exclusive El Cid Marina Beach Club, is a tranquil, waterfront resort with excellent facilities and services overlooking the marina. You can relax by one of two magnificent swimming pools featuring a swim-up bar, shallow lagoon and underwater caves or take a short water taxi ride (by boat) to the beach. Like I said you can enjoy a delicious Mexican snack buffet and refreshing beverages such as the locally made Pacifico beer at the open national bar. After a relaxing day at the resort, we were taken on a very scenic ride back to the cruise ship. I definitely recommend this tour. And our guide Mariano was simply amazing!
It has been a few years since we have been to this city. We decided this time to simply explore the city and do it by foot.
We first came across this small taco stand. After a few beef tacos several Dos Equis we moved on. After which we hired a water taxi and took it to Lovers Beach/Divorce Beach (the rocks and arches that Cabo San Lucas is known for). Unfortunately with the water being so rough, we could not get off the boat so the taxi ride turned into a tour of the harbor!
Eventually we found a table by the beach and sipped drinks and had the tastiest guacamole. It was a very relaxing day.
