I just returned from Cabo, Mexico and I had a wonderful trip. We stayed at the Fiesta American Grand, which I will have to tell you is a true 5 star experience. It is not just beautiful but the staff, food, pools, spa & service is amazing. While we were there we experienced a once-in-a-lifetime day at Cabo-Dolphins. This is a pretty new attraction that allows you to have a one to one connection with dolphins. We were lucky enough to have a little girl dolphin, born in 2002 named Ende. She was the sweetest creature I have ever met. We danced, kissed and she gave me a belly ride too. The trainers are as entertaining as the dolphins as well. The water is cold and shocking at first, but you seem to forget all that once you have a dolphin kissing your cheek. Don't miss doing this. At night we went to a lovely resteraunt called Ediths. The food and atmosphere were perfect. One more thing, we took a snorkle cuise with CaboMar. They are a class act group of fun guys. They took at to see the famous Arch of Cabo & Lover Beach. Both of these are must see if you go to Cabo. Fun, Fun, Fun! We did the always crazy, Giggling Marlin Club as well as Cabo Wabo too. I love Cabo and hope to go again one day. Beautiful, tropical and worth seeing!
If you arelike me you think you have done all that there is to do in Cabo San Lucas....but I recently found a new tour called the Americas Cup Tour. In cabo, this company Cabo Adventures has bought two massive regatta sailing yachts that were featured players in the 2000 Americas Cup Sailing Race for the New Zealand Team. The chance to get to even ride on one of these boats (two of the fastest sailboats ever made) is extraordinary but on top of that you get to steer it, grind the sails, hoist the jib and do all kinds of things that will leave you speechless. If you are like my wife though, and just want to enjoy the sound of the motorless boat cutting through the water, the boats have massive bows with tons of layout space....for you to practice your tan with. Overall this is just something different and at under 100 bucks you can´t beat it. Check it out.
It was definitely an eye opening experience. Less than a quarter mile outside of the beach resorts and golf courses are homes and stores where the local population live. The disparity in wealthy and quality of life between the tourists and locals are mind blowing.
I met another couple at the airport on my way back and they said the same thing. Cabo San Lucas is built by foreigners for foreigners. It's definitely a reality check for me and I thank whoever is up there for all my blessings.
A great adventure awaits!! You can take an ATV tour to Candalaria. It is a small village in the middle of the desert. They take you through the town and tell you all about the history and then you go to this beautiful beach and have lunch. It is an all day tour but worth it!!
