CABO ADVENTURES- is a relatively new tour provider in Cabo, but a sister company to Vallarta Adventures, the largest tour provider in Mexico. In Cabo they have 4 fantastic new tours they are running on the water and on land. The first tour is the brand new Americas Cup Sailing Tour which is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get to compete in a sail regatta on one of the actual boats from the 2000 races. The company has flown in actual members of the New Zealand race team and they bought two of the NZL boats from past races and you get the chance to grind sails, and hoist the jib and etc. Its a thrill that you can´t experience anywhere else.
The second tour they offer is an incredible journey into the heart of the Cabo desert on one of the companies massive Mercedes Unimog trucks. You get to explore the world outside of the bars and party scene of Cabo....Highly Recommended.
The third thing they offer goes without mention....They have one of the premier dolphin centers in the world, home to close to a dozen bottlenosed dolphins that were resqued from either near death situations or accidents. This truly is the crowd pleaser of Cabo...a sure bet for any child or dolphin lover...its awesome. www.cabodolphins.com
The fourth and final tours that the company offers is the ultimate adventure for the thrill seeker in the group. The Canyon Canopy Adventure is the pinnacle of fly by the seat of your pants adrenaline. Zip lines, rope bridges, rock wall climbing, tight rope wires, and more....await any and all takers....you can thank me later.
*We came across a few city fountains around town along the main road in Cabo
*The water didn't look all that clean, but it was worth stopping to sit down and rest.
*You can sit down and relax and get take some pics
*Friends/family can shop close by while others can sit by the fountain, relaxing and waiting
*If your the type that enjoys carriage rides, like the ones you can get in NY City, then Cabo is the place for you.
*I saw a lot of couples and children getting carriage rides.
*You'll have opportunities along the main road along the beachfront area to flag them down.
*Although, I'm not the carriage ride type of guy, this experience with Eileen was a hoot!
For only $10 an hour we got transportation from our hotel to a scooter rental place and toured around the city and to the other side of the city where you don't find resorts and $2.00 beers, it was really amazing to see how some of the people really live, not the resorty tourist area but the REAL Cabo San Lucas. Driving downtown made me nervous at first but the drivers were actually really considerate and many times they stopped for me when I couldn't figure out how to turn the damn thing around, or started heading the wrong way down a one way street. I never felt threatened, even with a whistle here or there. Such a good deal, we had to be careful about our spending and the activities we chose to do, for instance a wave runner is $90 an hour and even though they are soooo fun out there on the ocean (I had the chance to do it in Puerto Vallarta) it's just not worth the money, well for us anyways. Scooters were a much more affordable way to go and a great way to see and learn about the city when you might not have a chance to do so otherwise. This is a picture of me on the scooter with "the real cabo" in the background in the driveway of the Sunset Beach resort.
This square is also worth a visit. Lot's of small shops are around and the hotel you see on this picture is Hotel Las Glorias. If you are in town and need a water taxi you can walk here through the lobby to the back. You will end up in the Marina where the water taxis are laying. It is a much shorter way...
Cabo San Lucas is not a big city. Everything is build for tourist and there is almost no history. I mean by this that there is history, but it doesn't show up in town anymore. Everything from the past is gone, except a few poor houses. Every important building is new, even this main square...
As every other church, this one has a main altar as well. It is the first time I went to a church in Mexico that not had people inside to pray. Here the religion is dollars, and who am I to blame them. Merchants are to busy to get to the church...
The Cabo harbor walk is filled with restaurants, shops and bars and literally runs for 2-3 miles around the bay.
Cabo San Lucas is visited very frequently by Cruise ships, if you´re a fan of this elegant way of transport as me, you´ll find a new one each day in Medano Beach.
After a long day at the beach, the best place to go is the Marina. Fishing boats, Yatchs and Old Ships, surrounded by lots of Restaurants and Bars along the Marina Boardwalk..
Also the church looks also a very recent building. Here the church is not build on the main square, but around the corner...
No town in Mexico without a kiosk. Also in Cabo San Lucas we found one on the main square. Not something special for me, but maybe you will like it. I saw to many lately :o)
