Cabo San Lucas

View Mexico (Baja California) on divatmotoros's travel map.

Originally we wanted to do a short trip to Todos Santos which is about one hour from our current camping. To speed up the morning we packed breakfast for the kids and left the campsite around 9:00. As we passed El Triunfo the road was a bit twisty and we climbed to a small mountain, but then it opened up and changed to a two lanes highway.

We were progressing quite fast and it was a pleasure to see the Pacific Ocean again! Our smallest boy fall asleep as we got almost to Todos Santos sonwe decided to use his sleeping time and drive on to Cabo San Lucas. We arrived smoothly and we stopped at a small square next to the Museum of Natural History where a family was jumping ropes. As our daughter just started to learn it we asked if she could join their practice session and so we did.


Afterwards we have walked a bit looking for a restaurant and stopped at the Crazy Lobster. The food was good and the waiters were wery kind sonwe enjoyed the shrimp fajitas and skewers, the tacos and a burger. After lunch we eanted to walk to the famous arch. When parked the man letting us into the parking started to chat and asked if we were interested in whale watching. Word followed word and we agreed.to go out with a boat. It was a bit windy and late afternoon so not the best timing but regardless we hoped to see some of those fantastic creatures.


The boat ride was a bit bumpy as we morored against the wind bit the rocks and scenery was really beautiful. After a few minutes we turned back, the ride became a bit smoother and we noticed the first blow of white not too far away. We got closer and we were amazed as the mighty and unearthy creatures floated above the surface and disappeared slowly.


After the thrilling encounter we headed back to the marina and seen manta rays jumping out of the water and flying like birds


After mooring we have watched as a man fed the sea lion with fish. The birds were quite eager to get it and one of them even stole a piece of fish from the man, despite his best efforts to save ot to the sea lion.


A day packed with excitement and fun! Somewhere I red that only 1% of the populatioj ever witnesses whales. I am not sure if it is true or not but we feel really priviliged to see them in their natural environment.
