Cabo San Lucas
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
No tour planned for Cabo, weather was very nice, we just got off and walked around. Stopped for a cold margarita, went thru the flea market and then back to the ship. The vendors are not very aggressive, hardly got out of their seats . The area is loaded with hotels and condos, the rock formations are beautiful.

Weather beautiful. We did the trolley tour with shopping and beach break. The trolley was cute and comfortable. We sat in the open air portion in the back, better picture taking. Scenery was stunning. Beautiful bronze statues along the beach and the cliff diver was a cutie. From the lookout point we got to take photos of the ship in port. You did need a good zoom. We drove thru the old section of the city, stopped by a shrimp market, biggest shrimp I have even seen. Our tour guide was informative. We stopped at a church, got coffee and pastries at the corner bakery, and walked around the vendors in the square. Went to the selected store of Diamonds international, where they had all the free Pacifico beer you wanted. We ate lunch at a nearby open air cantina(very good food and lots of it) You could have the beach break here at a hotel if you wanted.No charge unless you wanted drinks or food at the hotel. The beach was very nice. I thought it was a good excursion.Lots of photo opportunities. We felt very safe in port. There was an army presence at the port, but nothing to detract from your adventure.

We did the Mexican Fiesta and tequila tasting. Large comfortable buses to take us to the Hacienda Dona Engracias. Beautiful grounds and the lunch was very good. You did have to buy your beverage. From there to the old town and along the malecon. Sand sculptures of egyptian pyramids and mummys and sphinx on the beach. The guide was good for the first part of the tour, very informative. He wanted us to walk up a hill to a church, some were not able to do this and he got kind of rude. All in all, the tour was good. I would not take it agin, as there are many other tours to do.
