Stayed at a really cool vacation rental on the water, swam with the whale sharks, communed with the humpback whales, liberated the turtles and sailed the high seas in a tall ship-a true adventure.

Cabo Marina & Sunderland OutingSunday, September 23, 2012
We drove from Todos Santos to Cabo San Lucas and wouldn't you know we found the marina first thing.....I think Alan has a psychic ability to find all things boats!  We walked around the Cabo San Lucas Marina and the beach on the bay right next to the marina.  Lands End is not how we imagined, it sits at the end of the busy marina not out in the middle of nowhere.

We went out on the Sunderland, a very old wooden fishing boat, on their website they call it a pirate boat.  Alan loves old sailing ships so he was in heaven helping raise and lower the sails (the boat also has a motor that we used due to lack of wind).  We went out of the marina and around the end of the Baja California peninsula which is where Lands End sits.  Didn't go far then turned back and stopped by Lands End for snorkeling, it's also a great diving spot because the water is very deep there.  We just enjoyed the boat but no snorkeling for us that day.  There were a few other pirate boats but none with sails like the Sunderland.  We had a great time and highly recommend this boat ride.

After our boat excursion, we walked around both sides of the marina, did a little shopping and had the best fish tacos we have ever had.  Some of the yachts in the marina were huge and beautiful,  we had a great day.

We headed back to Todos Santos which is about an hours drive as they were working the roads preparing for the June Summit 2012.  The work progressed quickly, we saw bridges going up and sections were being finished during our short stay.....in our little town it takes them a year to build a stretch of turn lanes.....we were impressed.  After the roads are finished the trip between Todos Santos and Cabo will be shorter.  Glad we stayed in Todos Santos but if you are a party animal you'll like Cabo much better.

Lot of fun on this cool tall ship, it is powered by motor or sails.

Villa Puesta del Sol, Hacienda Cerritos, Los Cerritos BeachSunday, September 23, 2012
We loved our stay at Villa Puesta del Sol.  We stayed in the guest house of Melanie and Guenter, our hosts.  They were so good to us and we loved staying at their place.  The views from the upstairs guest house are awesome.....we could see the humpback whales migrating south from our balcony, we even saw a few dolphins next to the shore the day we left.  The "subdivision" where they live is off the grid.....solar, generators, their own well (if I remember correctly), not the best internet but we were on vacation!  We were about an hour north of Cabo San Lucas and about fifteen minutes south of Todos Santos, a charming small town that is not commercialized yet.  They do have a Hotel California!  They also have a variety of restaurants with good food and a great little ice cream store that we visited often.  We loved watching the sunrises and sunsets.......we could get used to seeing these everyday.

About four miles north of us in Pescadero, Baja California Sur, Mexico, sits the Los Cerritos Beach.  It is one of the world class surf breaks, San Pedrito being another popular surfing beach close by.  We enjoyed watching the surfers do their thing.

Hacienda Cerritos is the most beautiful old Spanish style building we saw in the area and it is a new building!  They did a wonderful job of design and architecture, the view are amazing.  It sits on top of a rock outcropping just above Los Cerritos Beach.  The beautiful courtyard has views in each direction.  Some of he rooms have pool/hot tubs that look out over the Pacific Ocean.  Their website has some excellent photos.....they even have a helipad!  It is an expensive hotel but I'm guessing worth the money and something you would remember for a long time.
