Cabo San Lucas, located at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula is recognized as the Marlin Capital, and is home to the famous Arch, where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet. The Sea of Cortez, often referred to as "The World's Aquarium," is home to over 900 species of fish and more than 5,000 species of invertebrates, making it one of the seas with the highest biodiversity on the planet. [A lot has changed in this port since we were here many years ago with our friends the Gustafsons, Winterburns and Macks. I'm sure they haven't forgotten the dinner of the fresh tuna catch of the day ... or the mouse under the table!]


We took a tender boat into the harbor and had some time to spare before our planned activity. During this time, we decided to expand our collection of small bottles from different parts of the world by purchasing miniature tequila bottles from Espiritu de Agave. The distillery had attractive signs to encourage us to try their tequila. Having worked up a thirst, we stopped for a quesadilla and a cold one.


Jeff also bought a new cowboy hat for the summer, as his old one was pretty beat up, while I purchased new sunglasses to replace the ones I lost that I've had since hiking the Inca Trail in 2019 :( ). As you might expect, there are some good deals to be had on the other side of the border.

Next on the agenda was our Salsa, Salsa and Margarita class. We started by donning our chef's hat and tying our apron. Then, we joined the renowned dancing chefs to master the art of creating six unique and delightful salsas, including fiery red, tangy green, Oaxacan guacamole, pico de gallo, tropical salsa, and Rompope dessert. To complement the experience, we also delved into the secrets of crafting authentic margaritas and frozen strawberry margaritas. Finally, we transitioned to the dance floor to burn off the indulgence and refine our dance moves with the guidance of a skilled instructor.


By the end of the day, Jeff was indeed worthy of the T-shirt I bought for him!

Loved all your comments and pictures about your activities in Cabo. Quite a number of years ago I actually caught a huge marlin while in Cabo. Somewhere in all my boxes of photos I have a picture of this accomplishment.🙄
