Activities, Cabo San Lucas
Not to far from the center of town in Los Cabos is a Bull Fight Ring. WHen we were there, they advertised bull fights on Thursday nihgts. We knew it would be bloodless so we went expecting to see a bull fight. I believe it was $25.00 US dollars for each adult. It event was awful. The evening started out with some local children dancing. Then they called down 3 people from the crowd to chug a beer. Then more dancing by the same local children. They had some ladies ride horses and do tricks, more audience members came down to drink beer with a donkey. Now remember this was to be a bull fight. After over an hour still no bulls. At one point they had 2 young men from the crowd come down to the ring and go on a large see-saw. They let a baby bull out and it ran under and around the see-saw. Then they asked for more voluteers. My daughter wanting to ride a horse or see a bull up close volunteered. Well she had to ride a person dressed as a man on a horse. It was bad. After about 2 hours they finally had 2 madadors come out and a bull. The madadors spent more time behind a wall than out in the ring. After 5 minutes or so the bull went back to the pen and it was done. Bugs started to come out so everyone began to leave. As we were leaving they tried to have a guy ride a bull. But by that point everyone was so disappointed and the flying bugs were all over us, we all left. The show was not worth the money and it was not a bull fight. It was more of a show to see some local dancing and people drinking. I would not go back there again.
Unique Suggestions: Do not waste your time or money at this Bull Fight event.
Our first visit to Mexico on a Mexican Riviera cruise, we were in Cabo San Lucas for the day. We decided to rent jet skis; our two sons each on one, my husband & myself on another. My husband & I returned early & were told by the vendor (who is an American from Vegas) that one of our sons got too close to the cruise ship. We were told that the "policia marina" wanted to take our son to the "marina jail," different from the regular jail, to sign some papers and he will miss being back on the cruise ship on time, but they will let him off with a $150 fine. If we don't pay for the fine, the jet ski will be confiscated and we would have to pay for it. We waited for our son to return & asked him what happened. Apparently our two boys were together, one was "shooed" away and the other exchanged pleasantries with the "polica marina." No mention of fine, jail or signing papers. Being in Mexico, it was pay or miss the ship. We knew this to be a scam right from the start; we just wanted to get out of there without any trouble. While we were scrounging for money to pay, the vendor said, "Look folks, if you don't have enough, I'll make up the difference." We give him $138, which was all we had. Of course, this left a very sour taste in our mouths, not to say this experience confirmed the corruptness we've heard about in Mexico.
there are information booths set up all over Cabo where you can ask about activities in the area.

info guy: "oh, jes...whale back riding"
NO, THERE IS NO WHALE BACK RIDING!!!!!
one of these fine young people will be laughing their @ss off once you walk away.....
You leave from the Marina for a nice snorkeling trip expecting to see some great fish.
Well, they take you out to a murky spot and let you out.
You cant see any fish at all because the water is too muddy , and the fish that you can see are just normal grey looking fish.
Nothing like snorkeling in Hawaii.
I would not do it again.
Unique Suggestions: the view from the boat ride of Cabo was the only thing nice about this trip
We were advised not to go on this boat because they rip you off and it's a waste of time. It's expensive and you don't get a ride worth your money, so we didn't go on it.
