Cabo San Lucas
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
San Lucas is a newer town, built in a desert. Similar to Las Vegas in the sense, it pretty much was erected in an inhospitable desert over a short period of time. Fresh water is trucked or piped in. Very touristy and very expensive. The beaches are nice, but, be prepared to be smothered by people selling things. if you like culture and immersing yourself in other countries, San lucas falls short.

We booked a Dolphin excursion via Dolphin Discovery at the Marina Puerto Los Cabos in San Jose del Cabo. It was a 25 minute drive, they pick you up and it was worth the money. Eco-friendly, humane, and if you plan to swim with dolphins, this is the way to go. This was fabulous. A+!

Puerto Vallarta
Port Rating: Not Rated
We went to the old city (5km from port), rich in history with a local ex-pat guide, Reinhard Dressler. He also does snorkeling and other tours. The city was beautiful and our guide was fabulous. The best day of the cruise. We wished we had more time in Puerto Vallarta instead of San Lucas.
