I absolutely love Mexico. In my perfect world I would be eating fresh guacamole and tacos on a beach with a cerveza in my hand. I’m super grateful that my job gave me the opportunity to spend so much time exploring this beautiful country. Spending all this time in Mexico and being surrounded by mexicans, you would assume that my Spanish would be pretty good. I am proud say that I can have a full conversation with any 3 year old and after a few Micheladas I can confidently order from any taco truck in Spanish. My mexican slang is also on point.
One of my favourite places in Mexican is Cabo, largely due to the fact that it has amazing beaches. Fabien came to visit me on the ship while I was working and he was on vacation and we got to spend the entire day exploring Cabo.
In my opinion one of the most beautiful beaches in Cabo is Lover’s Beach. The only way to get there is by boat, we took a water taxi which are hard to avoid along the pier.
The taxi dropped us off at Lovers Beach. This is the calm side of the beach where the water is crystal clear and you can swim.
The other side of the beach is known as Divorce beach. It is too dangerous to swim here because of the waves and strong currents. It was way less crowded than on the other side and perfect for pictures.
We didn’t spend too much time at Lovers Beach due to the lack of shade… and cervezas. We hopped back into the water taxi and went to Medano Beach which is lined with restaurant, bars and resorts. The water taxis drop you off right on the beach, so you literally hop into the water from the boat and walk to shore. Make sure you hold on tight to all your stuff. I accidentally dropped my GoPro into the water when jumping out of the boat (don’t tell my dad). Thankfully I had the floaty attachment on it and was able to grab it before it floated away. Oops..
The water here was much calmer compared to Lovers Beach. But the beach is full of vendors trying to sell you a Nacho Libre mask or braid your hair, maybe even a sweet temporary tattoo. Lo siento mamacita, not my look.
We grabbed a spot at one of the resorts along the beach with some comfy chairs and an umbrella. Of course no day in Mexico would be complete without some cervezas and tacos.
On our way back to the pier in the water taxi we sailed past the famous El Arco just as the sun was setting. Such a beautiful site to end our day.
