The first two days were spent on the ship at sea, we were in serious relaxation mode, although we did play a mean game of beanbags and ping pong. We also hit the water slide and watched dolphins as we lounged on deck. From our stateroom we saw whales and even more dolphins as we passed by Cabo.
Next, we gave ourselves our own tour with Brandon and the wheel and Jon navigating. People say you can die on Mexican roads and we can attest to that. It's really just one big free-for-all and anything goes. Brandon became our designated driver because he became accustomed quickly to the non-rules. Our jeep also didn't provide much safety. We could view the road through the floor, the check engine light was covered with tape, and our seat belts unlatched while driving...yay. The funny thing was once we stopped, Jamie and I couldn't release our seat belts without the help of the boys.
That night we sailed to Mazitlan where the next day we took a zippy little open air taxi to the golden zone where we shopped til we dropped on the beach. Unfortunately it was super touristy, and all the vendors were on the beach which made it difficult to relax. Luckily, we attempted some body surfing and swimming in the ocean which allowed us some private time and a break from saying "No thanks" over and over. This beach was perfect for combing for sea shells for the girls.
