South toward Cabo San Lucas.....

On the road to Cabo and beyond.....even the cactus were in a festive Mexican mood!
Viva Mexico!

Why not a nice hammock in the shade? The Las Palmas hotel in Bairelles was lunch stop but looks like a spot to return and hang your hat for a bit.

Guess what? We passed south at the Tropic of Cancer demarkation. Amazing, it was dramatically warmer, balmy....yeah, right! Heading toward San Jose, we found our real destination in San Jose del Cabo, which is a strand of resorts between Old San Jose and Cabo.

Club Regina in San Jose del Cabo.
Note the cell tower on the mountain, disguised as a palm tree, sort of. A beautiful resort built into the cliffs and looking into the rocky/sandy beach. The "endless pools" were fun to sit in and watch the ocean. And they were all heated....!

The white wall is the pool's edge.

A map of the resort built into the mountain, Linda in the lobby and the cart paths they use to shuttle guests.

More Club Regina in San Jose del Cabo .......
....and a few pools....

Several swim-up bars kind of spoil one!

The sea gulls liked the pools, too!

Below is "our beach" area at Club Regina, down below our room....

Onward south to Cabo San Lucas, which was very cruise-ship touristy, crowded (both with people and tight boat spaces!) and expensive. Had a nice lunch and said adios!!

A party catamaran returning with the tourists full of margaritas and sunshine!

OK, we were tourists, too...

Then on to Todos Santos on the Pacific coast....where are those whales....???

NO whales near - very distant spouts! But the huge Pacific waves were pretty awesome! Sat for hours watching the water and sea gulls.

Welcome to the Hotel California! Yes, the Hotel California! Lovely place to stay in Todos Santos, while looking for the elusive whales.

Gorgeous little courtyards with character, very ecclectic. The rooms were very comfortable and updated. A queen room was $125.night. We checked in at 2 PM and they only had 2 rooms left.

Time to go back to the boat, men!!!
