Cabo San Lucas
Mini Submarine Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

After tendering to the Cabo pier, waited about 30 minutes for the mini-sub to arrive (prior tour was late getting back). You ride on top of the mini-sub when traveling to and from the Land's End area, then ride in the sub to see the marine life for 45 minutes or so. It was comfortable inside, cool and not crowded at all. We didn't see anything really special (wanted to see turtles), but the fish we did see were plentiful and beautiful. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Bottled water included.

Port Rating: Not Rated

Double decker bus tour of downtown, historic district, lighthouse and cliff divers.

Our ship was the first to visit Mazatlan in over two years due to security concerns. We wanted to visit the Turtle Sanctuary, but it wasn't available. So, we settled on the Topless Bus Tour. Mazatlan is trying very hard to get the cruise ships back. There were tourist volunteers everywhere. Each one an English speaker who knows the city very well. For instance, our bus had a volunteer who has spent every winter in Mazatlan for the past 18 years. This is in addition to the paid tour guide who gives you the official history of the area. The three hour ride seemed to cover all of the main sites in town, along with a 30 minute stop at a shopping area near the beach. We bought a few trinkets.

The upper deck of the bus was dangerous at times. Not because of gun-toting criminals, but because of uncut tree branches and low-strung telephone wires. Heads up!

Everyone in town seemed to know we were back and wanted to let us know how happy they were to see us.
