  • Snorkeling

    Cancún Sports & Outdoors

    I thought the beaches and oceans would be dirty in Cancun but they were beautiful. So far everywhere I have been in the gulf is beautiful. And I heard Cancun as the second largest coral reef in the world so go figure it was the best snorkeling EVER!!!

    Puerto Vallarta Sports & Outdoors

    Snorkeling at Los Arcos, Baya Banderas, was a lot of fun, although colder than we had expected. We had no exposure suit, so we didn't stay in as long as we might have otherwise. Los Arcos is a wave-formed rock formation near Mismaloya. The rocks are a federal eco-preserve and named after the arching grottoes channeling through some of the rocks....

    Cabo San Lucas Sports & Outdoors

    This was an excursion offered on a cruise. It was called Private Yatch for a Day. we really enjoyed it and thought it was worth the cost. We saw whale get caught (and released ) a marlin and snorkled for as long as we wanted. Sea kayaking was also offered. Great lunch served. Equipment provided. Crew was super nice and helpful. Only about a dozen...

  • Bullfights

    Tijuana Sports & Outdoors

    I know there are alot of people that dont like the bullfights but I do. They are held mostly on Sundays and it is a brutal sport. It isnt for some people. The corridas go from around April to October. Prices are from around $8 to $45. I also recommend you bring a pillow because the seats are somewhat unconfortable. They also sell a cushion for you...

  • Beach / Water Sports

    Mazatlán Sports & Outdoors

    Waverunning is a lot of fun but it can also be dangerous. So, if it is the first time or many times out on a waverunner, respect the ocean and the swells and waves. Be alert and the fun will be there. You sit on a water motorcycle and drive across the water, is the best way to describe this exciting watersport. A bathing suit is all you need to...

  • Swimming

    Cancún Sports & Outdoors

    Swimming with the dolphins at Xel Ha was so much fun. I think I got the biggest laugh from watching David's mom freak out as the dolphins picked her up. I like it because the dolphins came up and kissed me on the cheek, and they swam over my stomach, and allowed me to rub them. The neatest thing and one I recommend wholeheartly is to let them pick...

  • Scuba

    Puerto Vallarta Sports & Outdoors

    Cabo San Lucas Sports & Outdoors

    Take a cruise on the Pez Gato for a different view of Cabo...from the sea. The crew is friendly and fun, and the secluded snorkling is a nice break from laying by the pool all day. Make reservations through your hotel to save a lot of money. TOWELS ARE NOT PROVIDED! Also, bring binoculars or a camera to catch sight of any whales...

    I was on a horse in Mexico at Quiximto so I didn't go for it at the Royal Decameron Resort Complex but there is obviously ample opportunity depending on where you are to I guess. These guys in the picture left right from the Royal Decameron Resort Complex beach. The vendors in this area are liscensed and have permission to be there. I always...

  • Tours

    Cabo San Lucas Sports & Outdoors

    ATV tours are very popular in Cabo. There are a few tours available and they are reasonably priced. I took the lighthouse tour, which lasted 3 hours. You ride through town and onto an area with trails, and it can be enjoyable. It costs US$45 for a single and $60 for a double, and prices are usually the same for all companies. Tour guides are...

  • Golfing

    Puerto Vallarta Sports & Outdoors

    I am an avid golfer normally but I have to admit when I was in Puerto Vallarta I found it to hot to golf and stuck to the water sports, eating, drinking and touring around. It was also a bit pricey if you didn't have your own clubs and stuff. The Flamingo's golf course was right next to the Royal Decameron Resort in the Bucerias area just north...

  • Parasailing

    Anyone not afraid of heights should try parasailing. Parasailing was invented in 1961, but did not become popular until the early 1980s at many beachside resorts throughout the world. Participants are attached to a specially designed parachute (which is different from the parachutes used in skydiving) and towed out over the water by a speedboat. As...

    We went snorkeling at Chancanaab park . Very nice place with a reef right next to the beach. It cost $14 to get in but was worth it. You can rent the equipment there, but we had our own. Put on plenty of sunscreen! snorkeling equipment, bring from home or rent it there

  • Baja 1000 40th annaversary

    This November 14-18 will be the 40th running of the world famous Baja 1000 off road race. The event will take place in Tijuana, but contingency and race start will be in Ensenada and go all the way down the Peninsula. My tip is that the course will be all laid out 1 month in advance. Any and all who wish to pre-run the course can do so free of...

  • More bad Pictires

    I wish that I had better pictures to show how clear and beautiful the water is... It is a fresh water dive, so use half the weight. The water is clear and clean, but it is dark so you need a light. The temp is chilly, so a wet suit is recommended.

    I have never been into soccer (fútbol) in any way. But when I visited my friend in Mexico, they treated me to seeing a semi-final National League soccer game at Estadio Azteca (seats 100,000!). I tell you *that* is an experience!!!! You get to see the Mexican people in a place of one of their greatest passions of all: soccer. AND: the soccer is...

  • Bullfighting

    Who knew? I always assumed bullfighting was the people's sport. It's not--that's soccer (futbol). The aristocrats go to bullfights & it can cost plenty by Mexico standars. Well worth it though--you can get cheap seats. I'm a pretty non-violent type but I loved it. It's all about pageantry. Horns, plumed horses, tradition. There's gore too, but if...
