It’s no secret that Kier and I aren’t huge fans of Mexico. All of it. It stems back to a holiday we took to Manzanillo many, many years ago…like 16 or so. You know how they always tell you when you go to Mexico “don’t drink the water”? Well, we drank the water. Totally our own fault. Okay, okay, totally MY fault. I was the one who said “hey, it’s a Club Med. They filter the water here.” Guess what…they don’t! Three days of vomiting from every orifice of my body kind of sticks with you…for many, many years. But ‘barf fest’ aside, we really don’t like traveling to Mexico cause we think you’re just 1 visit away from being a statistic. Today’s port of call was none other than…Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Did we get off the ship? After 2 sea days, you’re damn right we did. Did we like it? Not so much. Would we return again? Not likely.
But before I get to the details, I just have to fill you in on our day BEFORE going ashore
Oh, and did I mention that it’s hot here in Cabo? And I don’t just mean hot…I mean STINKIN’ HOT! So we make it to the dock unscathed and head out to wander about the downtown area
Like almost every Caribbean island we’ve ever been to, as you walk around the town there is always someone vying for your attention, trying to sell a tour, a timeshare, or just get you into their store. It becomes annoying after awhile. And here they are particularly persistent in trying to get you into their bars. The ole ‘2fer’ is fairly commonplace here. We happen upon a bar with just such a deal at just about the time we’re looking to take a break from the extreme heat. In we go and order up 2 Pina Colada’s. Kier takes out a $5 US bill expecting that to more than cover the cost of 1 drink…cause the 2nd is free….RIGHT!! The bill comes and it’s 9
Although many of the clerks in most of the stores we stopped in were incensed that we only had 1 stop in Mexico before making our way to Nicaragua, we, on the other hand…happy!
Tomorrow is the first of 3 sea days. More R&R, movies, sudoku and ‘fightin’ with the oldies’. Hey…isn’t that the name of one of Richard Simmons exercise videos????
Beware of the '2fer'
