It is necessary to take a tender in Cabo, which is a pain. I really wanted to see Cabo, otherwise we would have stayed on board. After waiting about 20 minutes to get off the ship around 10 am, we took a water taxi to the beach for $3 pp. They advertise it at $2, but then they charge an extra dollar bc it's a private dock or some nonsense. I didn't mind paying the fee, I just get very irritated when I feel like someone is scamming me. The water taxi was fun. The beach was crowded, it seemed like there were almost as many vendors as there were tourists. They were not pushy, as soon as I said "no thanks", they simply walked away. My husband bought a Mexican blanket form a gentleman who swore his relative made it by hand in Pueblo, I guess we'll never know for sure! It's pretty either way. The one plus with the crowd was that there were a few other boys for my sone to play with, he seemed to have a lot of fun with his new friends. Since it was such a hassle to get there, we decided to break our rule and stay a little later. We had lunch (chips/salsa, shrimp tacos and a burger - again very good!!!) at The Office. It was a fun beach place. Another $10 water taxi ride back to the port and then tender back to the ship. Easier getting back on than getting off. The boy and I were very tired after our big day, so we slept through dinner and hit the buffet a little later. Hubby had dinner with the rest of the group.
